Big Brother VIP’s rumoured cast salaries
- Caitlyn Jenner: $500,000
- Omarosa Manigault Newman: $450,000

- Jessika Power: $20,000
- Imogen Anthony: $20,000
For example, Jessika Power and Imogen Anthony were reportedly paid just $20,000 each.
It comes after Thomas Markle Jr was asked about his salary on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Monday.
He said he couldn’t confirm his rumoured $200,000 payday, but said it was close.
‘[It’s] somewhere in there, not quite about that,’ he told radio hosts Kyle Sandilands and Jackie ‘O’ Henderson.
‘Just having the experience, going down to Australia and seeing an awesome country, that was worth more than anything to me.’
Omarosa, 47, told Kyle and Jackie O last month Thomas was ‘quite a character’ in the Big Brother house.
‘He talked a lot about his half-sister [Meghan Markle] and I think that he needed to get a lot of that off of his chest,’ she said.
‘So we just let him talk!’ she added with a laugh.
Twelve celebrity VIPs have entered the Big Brother house, but only one winner will leave with $100,000 for their chosen charity.
In addition to Caitlyn, Omarosa, Jessika and Imogen, the cast includes the likes of Luke Toki, Dayne Beams and Bernard Curry.
Big Brother VIP continues Tuesday at 7:30pm on Channel Seven
What a difference! The Australian cast members were apparently paid less, with none of them earning six figures. Jessika Power and Imogen Anthony were reportedly paid $20,000 each
