Keeping Up With The Kardashians aired on the E! Network in October 2007. The show launched Kim, Khloe, Kourtney, Kendall, Kylie, Bruce, Kris, Rob and Scott into the spotlight and set them all on the fast track to fame and fortune. So far, there have been nine seasons of KUWTK and they are currently filming season 10. The hit series has had three spin offs including, Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Khloe & Lamar. This past month, E! announced that they will be shooting two more KUWTK spin offs which have been titled, Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons and Dash Dolls. It’s also been reported that the Kardashians have signed another multi-season deal with E! for more than forty millions dollars. It’s clear that the Kardashians are wealthy, but which one of these family members is worth the most?
10. Kendall Jenner – $2 million
The oldest daughter of Bruce and Kris Jenner is already making a name for herself in the modeling world. Like her younger sister Kylie, Kendall earns $5000 per episode of KUWTK, but her modeling career is what is helping her bring in the big bucks. At the young age of 14, Kendall signed with Wilhelmina agency. Since then Kendall has landed several print campaigns for Forever 21, American Cheerleader, Teen Vogue, Girlfriend and Seventeen magazine. Kendall has also been featured on the cover of Australian Miss Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. The 18 year old is a regular on the catwalk, modeling for brands like Forever 21, Marc Jacobs, Chanel and many other top fashion lines. Kendall’s 7+ million followers allows her to collect $5000 per paid-for-tweet. Kendall also has endorsement deals with OPI nail polish and PacSun.
9. Rob Kardashian – $2.75 million
Rob Kardashian, the only son of Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian is considered not as successful as his siblings. However, at 27 years old, the multimillionaire is doing just fine. Rob earns $20,000 per episode he films of KUWTK and he also pulled in $150,000 for his appearance on season 13 of Dancing with the Stars. As a guest judge for the 2012 Miss USA pageant, Rob earned $25,000. Aside from filming, the 27 year old has an upscale sock line titled, Arthur George, which is sold in Neiman Marcus department stores for $30 a pair. His endorsements include Perfect Skin, Rival Spot and BG5. Rob can also charge up to $20,000 for a few hours of appearances and up to $8000 per paid-for-tweet to his 4.8 million followers. For being considered the ‘poorest’ Kardashian, Rob is still doing well for himself.
8. Kylie Jenner – $3 million
Kylie Jenner is the youngest daughter of Bruce and Kris Jenner. When compared to her family members, she isn’t close to being the wealthiest, but when compared to practically every other sixteen year old girl, she is very wealthy. Kylie reportedly earns $5000 an episode for KUWTK, but the majority of her income comes from her modeling gigs. Kylie has modeled for the Kardashian Kollection line at Sears, Girlfriend, Teen Vogue and Seventeen. Alongside her print modeling work, Kylie also earns income from runway work. She has walked the runway for Avril Lavigne’s line, Abbey Dawn, and Forever 21. Her 6 million followers on Twitter allows Kylie to charge $3000 per paid-for-tweets. Finally, like Kendall, Kylie brings in additional revenue with her endorsements with OPI nail polish and PacSun.
7. Scott Disick – $12 million
Although not a Kardashian, Scott is a regular on KUWTK and has fathered two children with Kourtney Kardashian. So, clearly he belongs on this list. Disick comes from old money which was inherited from his grandfather, David M. Disick. David made his money in real estate development where he established luxury resorts and properties around the world. Scott also makes his own money and earns an undisclosed amount per episode of KUWTK. He claims to earn the majority of his money through business investments and his work for GNC. Scott reportedly runs businesses that make products for GNC, including QuickTrim, Rejuvacare and Monte Carlo Perpetual Tan. With his 4+ million followers, one can assume, Scott also collects a good chunk of cash per paid-for-tweet like his Kardashian costars.
6. Khloe Kardashian – $18 million
The youngest daughter of Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian is worth an estimated $18 million. Khloe pulls in $40,000 per episode of KUWTK. She also landed a co-host spot on the X Factor back in 2012. Although Khloe was not asked to return for a second season, she earned $1 million for her short stint on the show. Her marriage to Lamar Odom also brought in a large chunk of change, when she sold the exclusive rights to their wedding photos for $300,000. Prior to their break up, the couple created the fragrance, Unbreakable, which had over $20 millions in sales. Like her younger half sisters, Khloe also earns the big bucks for tweeting. The 29 year old charges up to $13,000 per paid-for-tweet to her 9.6 million followers and up to $75,000 for appearances. Khloe also co-owns two clothing lines, Kardashian Kollection and Dorothy Perkins and a tanning lotion line with her sisters, Kim and Kourtney. In 2010, Khloe, Kim and Kourtney released their autobiography Kardashian Konfidental, which hit #4 on the New York Times Best Seller List. Then, there’s the endorsement deals. Khloe has endorsed Quick Trim, Perfect Skin, Tria Beauty and OPI nail polish.
5. Kourtney Kardashian – $20 million
Kourtney Kardashian, the oldest child of Kris Jenner and Robert Kardashian is also worth an estimated $20 million. Kourtney earns $50,000 per episode of KUWTK, which is $10,000 more than younger sister, Khloe. The 33 year old can command up to $125,000 for public appearances and $15,000 per tweet to her 11.2 million followers on Twitter. Along with the clothing lines and tanning lotion line she co-owns with her sisters, Kourtney also co-owns a children’s boutique named Smooch with her mother, Kris Jenner. Like Khloe, Kourtney has endorsement deals with Quick Trim, Perfect Skin, Tria Beauty and OPI nail polish.
4. Kris Jenner – $25 million
Momma executive, Kris Jenner manages all of her children’s careers and collects 10% of all deals she makes. Considering the net worth of her offspring, that makes up a large chunk of her fortune. She also serves as an executive producer on all Kardashian reality shows, which brings in an unreported amount of money. Jenner can charge up to $50,000 for public appearances and $5000 per tweet to her 4+ millions Twitter followers. Kris also released her autobiography, Kris Jenner…. and All Things Kardashian in 2011, which landed on the New York Times Best Seller List.
3. Kim Kardashian – $40 million
Kim Kardashian started her fortune in 2007, by settling a $5 million deal with Vivid Entertainment for the rights to her sex tape. Kim currently earns a whooping $80,000 per episode of KUWTK. Her celebrity status earns her an average of $100,000 per appearance. In February of 2014, Kim accepted $500,000 to go on a date with an 81 year old Australian billionaire. Like the rest of the Kardashian family, Kim tweets for cash and charges up to $25,000 per tweet to her 20.5 million Twitter followers. Like her half-sister Kendall, Kim also earns a sizable income from modeling and magazine front covers. Let’s not forget her 72 day marriage to Kris Humphries, which brought in $1.5 million for the exclusive rights to the wedding photos. As mentioned previously, Kim co-owns two clothing lines and a tanning lotion line with Kourtney and Khloe. On top of that, Kim’s five fragrances Gold, Signature, Glam Love and True Reflection have brought in more than $20 million in sales. Like sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, Kim has the same endorsement deals and more. Kim, the queen of endorsements, endorses Charmin toilet paper, Beach Bunny swimwear, Sketchers, Carls Jr, Midori, Bebe Jewelry line, Brissmor watches, Muscle Flex VETA fitness gear and many more brands.
2. Kanye West – $100 million
Kanye West is the soon-to-be husband of Kim Kardashian and the father of North West, their 9 month old daughter. His relationship status to Kim and North earns him a spot on this list. West is known for his music and has released six commercially successful albums since 2004. Kanye has several production credits including talent like Jay-Z, Beyonce, Alicia Keys and John Legend. The musician is also a seasoned businessman. He owns a chain of restaurants, a line of athletic shoes and a Louis Vuitton shoe line. Kanye has endorsed Pepsi, Adidas, Nike, Yahoo!, Budweiser and Dodge, just to name a few. With his attachment to Kim Kardashian, Kanye will most likely rake in many more endorsements deals and maybe even tap into the KUWTK deal.
1. Bruce Jenner – $100 million
Although It may come as a surprise to some, Bruce Jenner is worth more than Kim, Kourtney and Khloe combined. Jenner became famous long before the Kardashian sisters could even say, “Famous.” He won a gold medal in the 1976 Olympics and he quickly ended his Olympic career. At the time, Olympians could not financially benefit from their position, so Jenner chose fortune over fame. Bruce was soon pictured on the front of Wheaties cereal boxes and he landed numerous gigs for on-camera assignments. Bruce earns $35,000 per episode of KUTWTK, but the Olympian’s main income comes from savvy business ventures, including Bruce Jenner Aviation and Jenner Productions. On top of his business ventures, Bruce is also a motivational speaker and earns up to $40,000 per speaking engagement. Recently, several sources have indicated that Bruce and Kris have separated and that Bruce will not be returning to KUWTK after season 10. So, in the future Bruce Jenner might slip down this list or completely off of this list.
