'7 Little Johnstons': What is their salary per episode?

Some reality TV show stars likely make $25,000 to $40,000 per episode. As Terence Michael, a successful television producer who worked on programs like I Can Make You Thin With Paul McKenna and Planet Primetime, told E! News in 2009, reality TV show stars earn about 10 percent of the budget a TV show is allocated per episode.

The article focused on the Duggar family, estimating that they earned somewhere between $25,000 to $40,000 for each episode of 18 Kids and Counting. But what about the Johnston family? Does Terence's rule apply to them as well?

Unfortunately for fans, the stars of 7 Little Johnstons are yet to disclose further details about their income. Nonetheless, many believe that they are in a similar income bracket as the Duggars.

The Johnston family has a few assets, indicating that they can afford to live comfortably. Trent and Amber bought a 3,660-square-foot home with four bedrooms and three bathrooms in Forsyth, Ga., for which they reportedly paid $417,000. The lavish home is surrounded by 10 acres of land. It's understood that it also has a pool.
