"#Teen Mom OG" and "#Teen Mom 2" are extremely popular. The stars have been made famous for having children as teenagers, and their lives have become an open book for all to read. There has been speculation regarding who the highest paid franchise stars are, and it's no surprise that they come from the original series, "#Teen Mom OG."

How much do the original girls make?

There has been a lot of speculation about the salaries of the original girls. Catelynn Lowell, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, and Maci Bookout are said to make around $500,000 per season. That doesn't include any bonuses they are offered, or any of the gifts they receive throughout the season.

Several of them also have books written or business ventures on top of the reality television salary. If one would have to guess who makes the most from this show, it would definitely be Farrah.

The "Teen Mom 2" girls are making a little less than their counterparts. It is said that Leah Messer, Chelsea Houska, Kailyn Lowry, and Jenelle Evans make roughly $300,000 per season. Again, this doesn't include any of the bonuses they receive or gifts that are furnished for them while they are filming. A while back, Adam Lind spoke out about Houska's salary when he was complaining about how much child support he had to pay for their daughter, Aubree. He pegged her at $250,000, which seems like a possibility since it is now being reported as a little bit more than anyone initially thought.

Where does the money go?

When you look at the "Teen Mom" franchise stars, you have to wonder where all their money goes.

Some of the ladies like Chelsea Houska and Jenelle Evans have purchased big homes, while others like Amber Portwood and Maci Bookout have invested in a business they can run. Spending it all isn't a good idea, because even as popular as the show is now, it will end one day.

One thing is for sure, the ladies of "Teen Mom OG" and "Teen Mom 2" made a lot of money for getting pregnant as teenagers. Many of them have now gotten married and had other children, but continue to film their lives for the world to see. If they are making that kind of money per season, it makes perfect sense.
