Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac shuts down rumours he was paid $80,000 for his appearance on Dancing with the Stars

Sam Mac has shut down rumours surrounding his salary for Dancing with the Stars.

On Monday, Woman’s Day claimed the Sunrise weatherman was paid $80,000 for his appearance on the Channel Seven show.

‘This estimation is incorrect… I actually agreed to do the show for a cab charge and a half-price spray tan,’ Sam wrote on Instagram.

He added: ‘It has, however, given me the idea to monetise my gift. Taking booking enquiries below…Please describe your upcoming function and your proposed fee.’

The publication also claimed Kylie Gillies was paid $100,000 for her appearance on the show.

However, the Morning Show host also shut down salary claims, by replying to Sam’s post writing: ‘Incorrect. I PAID seven to have me.’

It comes after Sam’s time on Dancing with the Stars came to an end on Sunday night.

The Sunrise weatherman found himself in a nail-biting finish when he tied with Dani Hines.

Along with his professional partner Ruby Gherbaz, Sam faced a dance-off with Deni and her partner, Lyu Masuda. 

When it came down to the judging, Sam and Deni got one vote each, with a third vote deciding the result.

Judge Paul Mercurio broke the tie, picking Deni and Lyu to stay on the show, leaving Sam in the dust.

However, the television star was in good spirits after his loss, cracking jokes as he made his exit speech.

He joked that his elimination was akin to his co-star Ricki-Lee Coulter being voted out from Australian Idol in seventh place.
