If you’re wondering how the new parents of TLC’s reality series Outdaughtered, Adam and Danielle Busby, keep things in order with quintuplets and a 5-year-old daughter, you’re not alone. Aside from having a full workload at home, the amount of money it takes to raise six little kids can’t come cheap. So many fans are obviously curious what Adam Bubsy’s job is, other than being on TV.
According to his TLC bio, Adam is a full-time dad and also works as an account manager. More specifically, his LinkedIn page shows that he’s currently employed as a key account manager for Intrinsic Solutions and Sprint Safety, and appears to have been with the company for nearly 11 years.
And that’s not the only thing he has going on in his career: Adam and Danielle have also opened a new fitness business they’ve called Rush Cycle, which provides indoor cycling classes, Inquisitr reported. On Saturday, Danielle took to Instagram to celebrate the business' grand opening in League City, Texas.
"Grand opening day ribbon cutting!!! What a blast we had celebrating. Thank you everyone who came out today!" she captioned a video of the studio's opening ceremony.
According to Inquisitr, Adam doesn't plan on quitting his current job and will find a way to do both of them to help put his girls through college.
With two jobs, a camera crew following him, and being a dad to six little girls at home, Adam's certainly got a lot on his plate. And considering that raising a kid costs nearly a quarter of a million dollars — not including college expenses — adding one more source of extra income can only soften that inevitable financial blow.
But, if they're saving their earnings from Outdaughtered, Adam and Danielle may be pretty well off. The stars of other TLC family-centered shows have brought home millions. For example, Jon and Kate Gosselin of TLC’s Jon & Kate Plus 8 earned a reported $22,500 per episode, while other reports claim they made $75,000 for each episode. Additionally, the Duggars from 18 Kids and Counting were reportedly paid between $25,000 and $40,000 per episode.
While information about Adam and Danielle's salary from the show isn't readily available, it's safe to assume they take home similar figures considering the popularity of Outdaughtered.
But even with the show's extra income, making sure you'll always be able to financially take care of your family can be daunting — something Adam admitted during a 2016 interview with People.
“Being the sole provider, I feel like it’s all on my shoulders,” Adam told People.
“We budget and we do what we can to make ends meet and make it work,” Danielle said during the same People interview, adding that since having quintuplets, she left her full-time job and became a stay-at-home mom.
Six mouths to feed, six college tuition payments to save for, and five diapers to change several times a day is expensive. And while the Busbys likely earn a pretty penny from showcasing their lives on Outdaughtered, any extra income Adam's jobs bring home will certainly go to good use.
