Unlike in some reality TV shows available on Bravo, the stars appearing on Summer House can frequently be spotted in a position some freelancers know all too well — hunched over their laptops. Summer House, which is now in Season 8, revolves around a group of millennials who spend the summer in the Hamptons, N.Y.

This latest installment features Amanda Batula, Kyle Cooke, Paige DeSorbo, Lindsay Hubbard, Ciara Miller, Danielle Olivera, Gabby Prescod, and Carl Radke. Meanwhile, fresh faces Jesse Solomon and West Wilson are new to the house this season.

Many housemates have achieved some success in their professional careers before obtaining fame from the show.

But full-time jobs aside, how much does the cast of Summer House get paid for being on the reality series? Here's what we know.

The cast of 'Summer House' makes a pretty cool chunk of change per episode.

Summer House features twenty- and thirty-somethings who are able to juggle different careers. Some of them likely had the chance to accumulate assets, which may exceed the amount they get paid for their appearances on the show. But so, how much do they earn per episode?

The stars have not disclosed how much they take home for each episode. It's more than likely that they receive a handsome paycheck, but the exact number on said paycheck is not publicly available.

TheThings estimates that the average cast member appearing on Summer House likely takes away somewhere between $10,000 and $20,000 per episode, give or take. However, the calculation couldn't be corroborated at this time.

The cast members of 'Summer House' have lucrative careers outside the show.

The stars appearing on Summer House frequently embark on collaborations — which indicates that they likely benefit from the show in more than one way. By introducing their fans to the products they truly believe in — whether it be the delectable hard teas and premium craft cocktails many have grown to associate with Loverboy or the raw and minimalistic statement rings available over at Luke Gulbranson's R_Co. — the cast members are likely able to use the exposure to boost sales.

For instance, Carl doubles as a sales business development specialist at Loverboy, which is the love child of Kyle and Amanda. Meanwhile, Paige, and ex-Summer House star Hannah Berner, co-host the podcast series Giggly Squad.

Ciara, who models, also co-hosts the podcast Codependents with Mya Allen, who is also a Summer House alum.

Other cast members must rely on a different skillset during their day job than the one they use during the show's filming. Danielle co-founded the fashion app Donne, while Amanda is a creative director at Loverboy. These Bravolebrities definitely seem to make out well for themselves.

Watch Summer House on Thursdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
