‘Well, they don’t pay a talent fee,’ Yvie revealed, when asked how much the stars are paid.
'You’re not employed. The house gets a location fee and that has to be whoever owns the house gets a fee. Our landlord would get the fee and she would have to forward it to us if she wanted to.
‘It would be happening in all the rentals. This is how bad it was in the beginning, the first season, per day, per house we’d get $250 a day.’
