OutDaughtered has captured the hearts of TLC viewers. Adam and Danielle Busby are raising six girls, one singleton and a set of quintuplets. They are incredibly busy and have shared their lives with people all over for the last two years.

One of the biggest questions fans want to know is how much the Busby family makes from filming OutDaughtered. There are a lot of factors that go into it, but generally, the stars of the show are paid 10 percent of the budget allotted for filming each episode.

According to In Touch Weekly, OutDaughtered brings in between $25,000 and $40,000 per episode. Of course, this is only an estimate but it is likely to be close to what the Busby family is bringing in. With all of the attention the show has received, the network is seeing the value of keeping it in the lineup.

Adam and Danielle Busby also have their own careers. He is a key account manager for a company that he has been with for over a decade and she works as an independent beauty consultant. Aside from that, the Busbys are also in business with friends of theirs.

They opened up a cycling place called Rush Cycle. It is unclear what the business brings it.

Filming OutDaughtered appears to be worth it for the Busby family. There is no word on whether TLC will order another season. Currently, they are airing on TLC and the episodes were taped last fall.

OutDaughtered airs Tuesday nights at 9/8c on TLC.

Thank you for sharing your family with TLC it’s very addictive to watch. And has helped me a lot with my depression brought on by the coronavirus.
