If you're an average high school nerd, chances are you might make a million in a tech start-up or by inventing something that finally stops bananas bruising so easily. But for the central cast of The Big Bang Theory, it seems all you need to earn an obscene amount of money is enough bitchface to last a life time and some expensive lawyers.

Kaley Cuoco and co-stars Jim Parsons and Johnny Galecki have bagged themselves one hell of a contract for the last three seasons of the sitcom. All three will be earning a massive $1 million an episode - the same rate as the stars of Friends earned in its final season.

So let's breakdown some crazynomics. Three seasons = 72 episodes = $72 million dollars. In addition, the trio have upped their stake in the ownership of the show, meaning they'll earn at least $90 million come 2017.

In other words, Kaley Cuoco is earning bigger bucks than you ever will in your entire life. That ranks only slightly below the fact that Honey Boo Boo's mom has a boyfriend in the list of most depressing statements ever.

The terms of co-stars Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar contracts are yet to be determined, but you can guess that they won't come away disappointed either.

Either way, it's safe to say that the stars of The Big Bang Theory won't be walking away from the show anytime soon.
