Shawn Johnson could rake in a bundle if she succeeds as a reality star, TMZ reports. The Dancing with the Stars contestant, whose contract to appear on the show had to be approved by a judge because she’s a minor, made $125,000 just for being a contestant. The Olympian will score another $20,000 for surviving weeks 3 and 4.
If the gymnast leaps into weeks 10 and 11, she’ll rake in $50,000 a week and take home a total of $365,000 if she’s in the final two. The contract also requires Johnson to train 20 hours a week and absolves the show from blame for any possible injuries. But the contract makes no provisions for paying bodyguards to ward off stalkers.
