She”s only 16 years old, but “Dancing with the Stars” front-runner Zendaya is on track to rake in $345,000 during the ballroom battle … IF she can make it to the finale.
According to her “DWTS” contract … Zendaya collected $125,000 to kick off the competition and appear on the first two weeks of the show. After that, she gets paid weekly — SOP for all the contestants.
The good news for the dance-savvy Disney star — the $$$ goes up, the longer she can last. Here”s the breakdown:
Weeks 3 & 4: $10,000 per week ($20k total)
Weeks 5 & 6: $20,000 per week ($40k total)
Weeks 7 & 8: $30,000 per week ($60k total)
Weeks 9 & 10: $50,000 per week ($100k total)
Grand total for all 10 weeks: $345,000
You gotta understand, Zendaya”s been blowing away the competition — meaning there”s a good chance she could take home the mirror ball … and with it, all that cash.
Sure beats flippin” burgers.
