It’s that time of year again! ABC is set to premiere its 2019 season of “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday night and that means viewers can expect to see a new cast of dancers compete for the Mirrorball trophy. But before tuning in to see the Season 28 participants hit the dance floor, find out what prize money they are eligible to win.

Since the beginning of “Dancing With the Stars” in 2005, ABC has paid each of its contestants (and professional dancers) for their participation. And despite the show naming a winner each season, this year’s first-place performer shouldn’t expect an additional payout from the network.

It has long been reported that “DWTS” winners earn roughly $345,000 to $360,000, in addition to the title of “winner” and the Mirrorball trophy. The winner’s finalists, however, are expected to earn the same amount.

In 2010, Gawker revealed that each season’s contestants are paid on a sliding scale. After getting a sign on bonus of $125K, the celebrities are reportedly paid based on how many weeks they can remain on the show without being voted off. Being that the finalists all compete in the finale, this means the winner won’t make anymore than his or her competitors.

Variety backed up these findings last month, reporting that contestants will be given $125K for completing the show’s rehearsal period and for competiting on the first two weeks of the series. The outlet did report a lower overall pay for the winner though, stating that “the maximum contestants can earn is $295,000.”

“Dancing With the Stars” Season 28 kicks off on Monday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. EST on ABC. Viewers can expect to see ABC’s latest “The Bachelorette” star Hannah Brown, former White House press secretary Sean Spicer, and many more noteworthy celebrities compete.
