WHAT DOES THE WINNER OF DWTS GET?
The Dancing With The Stars competition has a highly sought-after prize among the contestants.
Aside from taking home the mirrorball trophy, each contestant gets paid for participating in the competition.
The longer the contestants last without elimination, the higher their paycheck is toward the end of the show.
According to Variety, the stars are given a sign-on bonus of $125,000 just for showing up for the initial rehearsals and the first two weeks of filming.
