We've often wondered what it's really like to be a realtor in Los Angeles. The cast of Selling Sunset make it look impossibly glamorous. Yes, there's the odd meltdown when an open house doesn't go quite to plan or a vendor won't come down on price despite no bids, but beyond that, the Netflix show makes it appear to be all Louboutins, lip fillers and champagne.

And while there has been huge speculation about what kind of commission the realtors are banking after successfully shifting a property worth a couple of million dollars, we might never get to grips with the exact salary they take home. That said, there are some pockets of their wallets that we can delve a bit deeper into.

In the first instance, we can wager a pretty good guestimate as to how much each Selling Sunset star is getting paid to post #sponcon on Instagram. Thanks to a spot of research by TopMobileCasino, we now have a sort of unofficial league table, charting the hierarchy of social media earnings among the cast. The mobile casino brand has analysed data which includes their follower count, average engagement and more, to give us an idea of who has the best clout score. Of course, some brands may choose to pay the stars more than they have a reasonable right to command, just for the hype, but that's info we'll probably never have access to.

And it might surprise you to know, despite Christine Quinn's jet set lifestyle, new baby and that wedding, she is not actually the highest earning social poster.

The top spot has actually been claimed by altogether gentler cast member Chrishell Stause who, according to the stats, can earn up to £4,203.87 per Inta-post. This means that Chrishell would need to post only 94 sponsored pictures to make the equivalent of her highest commission on the show - £397,323.94 ($539,670). Her appearance on Dancing with the Stars and her fledgeling romance with co-star Jason Oppenheim have both contributed to her top spot on the earning list.

It won't shock you to learn that Christine Quinn is the second most influential agent. According to the research, Quinn has the power to command an average of £3,888.93 per sponsored Instagram post.

Heather Rae Young can reportedly expect to earn an average of £3,587.87 per post, making her the third most influential agent on the show.

Davina Potratz - most well known for listing a $75 million house that didn't sell during filming - is the least influential, earning £474.24 per post.
