The huge salaries of SAS Australia stars has been revealed, with one contestant reportedly earning up to $100,000.

The show features ex-Bachelor Nick ‘Honey Badger’ Cummins, ex-Bachelorett Ali Oetjen, convicted drug smuggler Schapelle Corby and PR giant Roxy Jacenko.

It’s no easy feat either: the cast have been put through their paces by being pushed out of a helicopter, forced into one-on-one combat and submerged into freezing cold waters.

But the celebs are being handsomely compensated, according to the DailyMail.

A production insider revealed to the publication that the Aussie contestants have bagged themselves some killer deals, with most of them being paid between $30,000 and $50,000.

But one member is earning almost double the rest of the cast: Corby.

According to New Idea, the former Bali inmate is sitting on between $80,000 and $100,000.

“She and [sister] Mercedes were able to talk the numbers up, as Seven saw Schapelle as a real coup for publicity,” a source told the publication.

“The Corby girls had the upper hand and they knew it.”

However, contestants who leave the show early may see a percentage of their pay cut, which is bad news for Jacenko, who left the show after just six hours.
