How much do yall think someone like Lisa Rinna got paid per episode? Seems crazy to think she signed a contract with such a small guarantee, but of course they could've extended it if they wanted to.

I'll guess around 5k/day?  That's me factoring in her "name" and primetime notoriety and the current state of soap budgets.

and some days she'd literally randomly pop in for 20 seconds and then disappear! She really got a good deal

Lisa has said she went back to days after not acting for so long to get back into it and see what happened, shes a smart business woman and never came across as wanting to become a lead so im sure her contract was def for a low ep but i doubt she made a ton off it either. 

 

Some of the younger set id bet have a higher guarantee than listed but ended up being used less.

Interesting list. Thanks so much Jason. Always interesting to look at.

 

You can clearly tell who got a boost in the last few months. LOL.

 

I think episode guarantees are kinda ridiculous. I get it and why but I think the way soaps are run needs an overhaul. I'm sure massive budget changes could eventually save them money. I think there should be, yeah, some kind of episode guarantee but at the same time, a base salary of some sort so characters can be used how they need to be used. Having so many characters only allowed 8 episodes a month really isn't very good when you have 5-10 people at 12-15 a month. I guess it helps, somewhat, explain a little bit of the isolation.

 

Oy, sorry for the runon LOL. I don't even know if any of that made sense.

Lisa's doing Celebrity Apprentice for the second time now, so I think she's more concerned nowadays with just being in the spotlight, rather than how much her guarantee is.

 Not probably too much higher. "Days" doesn't have the budget to be paying people and not using them. They have to pay what the guarantee is, so they need to use up every episode they can or lower the guarantee.

For those who haven't seen them before, here are some contract guarantees (the real ones) from 1969, 1970, 1972 and 1973:

 

Please note, these guarantee charts were prepared for 13-week cycles, so the guarantees are for just one 13-week cycle...multiply by four to get the annual guarantee numbers.
