When it comes to salaries on “The Hills,” one person stands out above the rest. According to Heidi Montag, Lauren Conrad snagged the biggest paycheck from the series. Montag spoke with BuzzFeed about the topic. “Cast members did all make different salaries, so we wanted to do like “Jersey Shore” and unite together, and all get a bigger paycheck, but everyone was a little bit too divided,” she told the outlet in 2016. “I mean, obviously Lauren got paid the most — it was her show. She was driving from Laguna to the Hills.” Perhaps her larger paycheck helped buy the gas to go back and forth.
So, exactly how much did Conrad bring home? Well, we’d call it a pretty penny! According to The Daily Beast, Conrad raked in $125,000 per episode. She also had a clause in the contract that stated no one else could be paid more than her as long as she appeared in the series. That’s a smart business move! The other cast members still didn’t have much to complain about, as they also received a pretty good salary for appearing on the reality show. The same article reveals that Kristin Cavallari raked in $90,000 per episode and Montag made close to $100,000 an episode. Audrina Patridge, and Lauren “Lo” Bosworth also nearly hit the $100,000 per episode mark. Montag’s husband, Spencer Pratt, made a little less at $65,000 per episode, which is still enough to purchase a nice whip.
