Gino Palazzolo must be loaded to be able to finance all of Jasmine Pineda’s cosmetic enhancements, right?
That’s what most 90 Day Fiance viewers are likely thinking, anyway.
We’ve watched Gino and Jasmine’s volatile love story play out for three seasons now, and in that time, Gino has dished out quite a bit of cheddar to fund Jasmine’s penchant for plastic surgeries and pricey, high-rise condos.
And with the recent revelation that he quit his job in order to spend more time with Jasmine once she arrived in the U.S., it begs the question: how much money does Gino earn, and how does he earn it?
Let’s take a look.
Gino Palazzolo earns his income as an engineer
Per Glassdoor, Gino’s career earns him between $77,000 and $105,000 annually.
Gino has also worked as an engineer for Ford, Chrysler, and Yanfeng.
Gino is also a savvy investor
Since Gino told Jasmine that they’ll be living off his savings “comfortably” until they get married, it appears that he has been wise with his finances.
During his debut in Season 5 of 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days, Gino also shared that he’s been smart when it comes to investing his money.
“I have a lot of investments,” Gino confessed. “I buy and sell my own stock, and my value hit, like, $650,000 or something like that.”
“But that’s basically money for our retirement, so I don’t want to touch any of that right now,” Gino added.
In addition to his work as an engineer, Gino earns some income for his appearances within the 90 Day Fiance franchise.
Gino was first introduced to 90 Day Fiance audiences during Season 5 of Before the 90 Days, then continued to share his storyline in Season 6, and is currently appearing in Season 10 of 90 Day Fiance alongside Jasmine.
With an estimated paycheck of anywhere between $500 and $1,500 per episode, it’s likely that Gino will have raked in somewhere around $27,000 by the end of Season 10.
Gino’s estimated net worth is $1.5 million, including his salary and investments, based on multiple sources.
The 90 Day Fiance star might be wealthy, but he remains thrifty
Although Gino earns a substantial income, that doesn’t mean the TLC star spends frivolously to keep up with Jasmine’s luxurious lifestyle — at least not when he knows where his money is going.
As we watched this season on 90 Day Fiance, Gino was irate when he learned that Jasmine spent $10,000 on butt implants.
On top of that, Gino was hesitant to go on a spending spree despite Jasmine’s demands that he update his home to accommodate her decor preferences.
As Gino confessed, “We’re not the only couple that’s living on a budget. You know, everyone has a budget, and it’s the real world.”
Season 10 of 90 Day Fiance airs on Sundays at 8/7c on TLC.
