After dissecting Teen Mom 2's Jenelle Evans' net worth and then Leah Messer's, we can officially confirm that Chelsea Houska falls somewhere in the middle. You probably knew that already, but do you know how we got the numbers? Read on to see how much Chelsea is worth and from where she gets all her dough... OK! News: Catelynn Fires Back at Farrah's Mean Comments First, like both her co-stars, Chelsea gets $75,000 a season, plus $20,000 bonus. OK! Investigates: How Much is Jenelle Evans Worth? Unlike Leah though, Chelsea (unfortunately) doesn't have a supportive and high-earning husband, or even someone who can pay her child support (ahem, Adam Lind). Thankfully though, she does have her dad, Randy, who is a dentist in Vermillion, South Dakota. As we've seen on the show, he steps in with financial (and emotional support) when needed. Papa Randy is the best. Baby daddy Adam Lind can be a little sporadic in child support payments for Aubree, especially right now. Adam's girlfriend, Taylor Halbur, is expecting his second baby, and he is currently incarcerated for multiple DUI offenses. So when it comes to child support, Adam pays the absolute minimum he can get away with—we hear it's in the range of $250 a month (when he does pay it). OK! Investigates: How Much is Leah Messer Worth? Chelsea is currently attending the Black Hills Beauty College studying makeup and hair. And in addition to her Teen Mom duties, Chelsea works part-time at a tanning salon, Year Round Brown, where she works an average of 15-20 hours a week at $10 per hour. That's an average of $175 per week. She also does Scentsy parties (average one a month) and markets her seller web page on her Facebook, Twitter, blog etc, bringing in about $400 a month for that. OK! News: What To Know About Teen Mom 3 As for what Chelsea spends? Chelsea rents her home, which costs her $800 monthly, and aside from utilities, overheads and paying for Aubree, her biggest splurge is her MAC makeup which she is "obsessed" with! Chelsea's dream is to own her own salon, which she wants to do as soon as she finishes college (she's currently half way through her studies). Chels is committed to saving as much money as she can in her bid to achieve her goal. Conclusion: a highly respectable net worth of $40,000! OK! News: Maci Bookout Reunites with Ryan Edwards Are you surprised that Chelsea is worth $40k? Would you expect Adam to give her more or less money for Aubree?

Unlike many of her fellow Teen Mom stars, Leah Messer has the luxury of having a supportive husband with a good job! In addition, despite their past problems, the 21-year-old mom of three has a good working relationship with her ex, Corey Simms, who is the father of her twins, and he pays her regular child support—so how much is she worth? Leah Messer really does have it all! A loving and supportive husband, gorgeous kids and money in the bank! In the second part of our Teen Moms 2 money special feature, OKMagazine.com breaks down what's in Leah Messer's bank account. There have been numerous reports that Leah is considering quitting, if MTV do decide on a fifth season of the hit show—choosing instead to leave the drama behind and concentrate on being a wife and mom. “I will NEVER let money take over my life! All I need is what I have.. Money will NEVER make me truly happy! It’ll never buy my happiness,” Leah tweeted back in January. OK! Investigates: Teen Mom 2's Money—You Won't Believe How Much Jenelle Evans Is Worth! That may well be the case, but Leah does have a solid nest egg sitting in the bank to fall back on if times get tough. According to a well placed source, Messer, in her own right, is worth in the region of $75,000, and that's without taking into account her husband's substantial earnings and her home ownership. Leah, pictured here with hubby number two, Jeremy Calvert, has twin girls from her previous marriage Leah married husband number two, Jeremy Calvert, in April 2012, and working as a pipeline engineer he brings home the bacon! OK! News: Find Out What the Real Housewives Get Paid Calvert earns in the region of $200,000 a year and unlike many in America these days has no problem finding work. He was laid off from his last job in early March but managed to pick up a new gig with equal compensation and benefits in a matter of weeks. Leah married Jeremy on April 4th 2012, they have a baby girl together Like fellow Teen Mom, Jenelle Evans, Leah was paid $75,000 per season for the show, along with a $20,000 bonus—hwoever, unlike poor Jenelle, who is currently broke and living back at home with mom, Leah has managed to keep hold of her hard earned cash! OK! NEWS: TEEN MOM 2 STAR LEAH MESSER WEDS AGAIN In addition, Leah recently started a part time work gig at a local tanning salon, Tanfastiq, which helps bring in some extra cash, in the region of $200 per week—and she loves it! Jeremy earns the big bucks as a pipeline engineer, Leah works part-time in a tanning salon "Working @tanFASTiq 10-4. Come see me, and tan your booty! #spraytan #levels1-5beds #teethwhitening #fitwrap We pretty much have it all!" She Tweeted back in March. "Love it here, you should be tanning here!" OK! GALLERY: THE CASTS OF TEEN MOM AND TEEN MOM 2 REUNITE IN NYC Then there are the magazine deals. Messer struck a deal with US Weekly for her wedding photos last year and then for the first baby photos of little Adalynn, who was born February 4th—that brought in an extra $12,000. Leah gave birth to daughter Adalynn on February 4th Finally, Corey pays Leah $700 a month in child support—the amount came under scrutiny last season after Leah's mother claimed MTV edited the show to make it appear her daughter was being greedy and trying to squeeze as much money as possible from her ex. Photos: We Play Matchmaker With the Teen Mom Babies The truth of the matter though is that Leah is actually entitled to around $1,200 a month in support, but agreed to settle for much less, $100 less in fact than the $800 a month that she was shown agreeing upon in Teen Mom 2. Leah and Jeremy own a three bedroom hone in Elkview, West Virginia Messer has also been smart when it comes to spending her income—she and Jeremy own a three bedroom home in Elkview, West Virginia which is worth in the region of $300,000! Not bad for a 21-year-old! What do you think of Leah Messer's financial situation, has she earned the money or had an easy ride?
