1000-Lb. Sisters – How Does Tammy Slatton Earn Money?
Some fans might wonder just how the 1000-Lb. Sisters star gets since she can seldom get out of the house for long and probably cannot work at an everyday job. Tammy and Amy first found fame when TLC’s 1000 Lb. Sisters first aired in January of 2020. At that time the two collectively weighed 1000 lbs. As the show’s name indicates.
he ultimate goal of the show was for both women to eventually qualify to receive life-saving bariatric surgery.

Fighting her program every step of the way she has also gone through some questionable boyfriends who only enabled her to backslide or otherwise stay in a rut.
1000-Lb. Sisters – What Does TLC Pay Tammy Slatton?
According to Reality Tidbit, Tammy has a net worth of $100,000 and, though it’s not chicken feed, it’s still less than half of what her sister Amy is earning at a whopping $250,000. Since Tammy is now receiving the villain edit on 1000-Lb. Sisters, we can assume that villains make less money.
Judging from what other TLC reality TV stars earn per episode, we can safely assume that the sisters are making about $5,000 per episode or $50,000 per season. But, since the sisters have never revealed what the TLC network pays them, this is all just speculation.
