How Did The Kardashians Get Famous

By Tiara

If you’ve ever watched the TV show The Kardashian-Jenner Clan, then there is a good chance you have seen some of their famous flashes before. These glimpses are not only of the family in general, but also of individual members such as Kylie or Khloe Jenner, Kim Kardahian, and Kris Humphries!

The fame that the kiddies get to experience comes mostly from two sources: media attention and social media. Since the kiddos were always in front of the camera, they learn how to manage their image and keep sharing it for constant exposure.

Furthermore, most of these kids grew up with technology so they learned how to use social media to spread their name even more. All of this adds up to them having access to the best possible source of income: marketing!

Overall, the kiddies seem like pretty positive people who enjoy interacting with others and being known. They seem to love what they do and are very passionate about it!

This article will talk more in depth about each member and why they became popular.

Kourtney Kardashian

After filming her first episode of The Kyle and Jackie Show in September 2010, E! decided to give Kourtney a TV show of her own. They created The Kylie _____________Show which featured her as she lived it every day with her family.

The show followed the life of famous fashion designer Kylie Jenner who also grew up watching The Hills along with her sister Kendall. She would make fun of their clothes and styles while helping them design new looks. Her style was always very fashionable and rich.

Her personal style has changed over time but still features classic pieces mixed in with more trendy clothing. Since starting her career as a model at age 15, she has appeared in many advertisements for top brands such as Neutrogena, Covergirl, Maybelline, and others.

She is now one of the most recognizable faces in the world and has influenced many other celebrities and designers. Many have said that she helped inspire their look or at least gave them inspiration to re-style themselves.

The Kardashian name alone makes this woman wealthy; however, her success comes from her hard work and creativity in designing clothes that people want to buy. She is known for being able to market herself and her image well and create media attention around herself.

This isn’t the case for all celebrity kids, but she does get credit for creating an entertainment empire out of nothing more than being yourself and owning your mistakes.

Kim Kardashian

Born in Chicago, Illinois as Kimberly Katherine Odom, Kim was raised by her parents in East Los Angeles. Her father is Robert Odom and her mother is Patricia Johnson. She has one older sister named Kylie.

At just 15 years old, Kim made her acting debut in 2005 when she appeared in an episode of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody. Two years later, she landed her first major role as Dani DiLaurentis on the TV show Drake’s Reign.

Since then, she has starred in several hit shows such as The Vampire Diaries, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and Marriage and Family.

She also amassed over 100 million followers on various social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. In fact, she is so popular that she now has her own line of beauty products!

Her net worth soared to almost $100million making her one of the highest paid celebrities in America. So how did this beautiful young woman achieve such success?

Finding your passion and promoting it relentlessly are two great ways to gain recognition. Since Kim loves to take pictures and share them online, she leveraged her love for photography to promote her career.

By putting in consistent effort into building her brand, she succeeded in creating a celebrity empire.

Kylie Jenner

Before there was The K-Team, there was just another pretty face. You may have heard of some of the members of The Kardashian Family, but you probably didn’t know much about their pasts.

Early stages of the kiddie porn scandal involved only Kim, Kris, and Paris. It is our belief that these women were aware of at least one person filming them while they were nude or engaged in sexual acts.

In fact, many sources claim that all three had explicit videos made with them before the story broke. Many believe this to be true because, earlier this year, reports surfaced saying that Kylie filmed herself having sex with her then boyfriend, Travis Johnson.

After learning of this rumor, Kylie took to social media to make it clear that she is very conscious about what goes into her phone and computer and to prove it, she posted several nudes of herself online for anyone to see.

This seems like an appropriate time to mention something we are going to say again. Nude photos and naked pictures of celebrities are not new. In fact, most people your age (or older) have at least one such photo somewhere!

Running away from responsibility can cost you later.

Before there was K-pop, there were the Kardashian sisters. Born in South Africa, Kendall Jenner, Kim Kardahian, Kylie Bunchet and Khloe Oaly grew up together as kids with their father and mother. They lived in various houses around southern California before settling down in a neighborhood near the beach.

It wasn’t until 2000 when the media really took notice of the family. That's when lawyer to the rich and famous Robert Kardashian noticed his daughter’s knack for publicity. He got her into some modeling gigs and she soon found herself appearing on TV shows like The X Factor and Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

From there it was just a matter of launching other successful careers for himself and his children. While he may have been able to get his offspring jobs by being supportive or even generous, most of these opportunities came through connections or via hard work.

But now that his son Drake has announced his engagement to Ariana Grande, we can add another milestone to his list: fiancé with the biggest balls in show business.

Brody Jenner

As mentioned earlier, Kim Kardashian got her start as an entertainment reporter for E! News. While she has since branched out into other ventures, such as fashion lines and television shows, her career really took off when she filmed what would become one of the most famous MTV reality TV show franchises ever made.

The Kardashian franchise now boasts five main TV shows and over 100 episodes that follow the lives of the family members. These shows are all focused around Kim and her familiy, but they also feature Caitlyn Jenner (formerly known as Bruce), Khloe Kardashian, Rob Kardashian, and Brody Jenner, who is formerly known as Scottie.

The shows mostly focus on the family’s everyday life, including their work and personal relationships. A few episodes do, however, delve deeper into something more important to the family- like Kylie’s new boyfriend or whether or not Kris actually knows how to cook.

Since its debut in 2005, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has consistently been one of Mtv’s highest rated programs. Following a similar format to its predecessor, TheRealHouseWivesofOrangeCounty, which premiered two years prior, RHOBH features wealthy suburban women living under the same roof.

But instead of talking about their kids, yoga classes, and food cravings, these housewives talk about their husbands, money, and possible infidelities.

Caitlyn Jenner

Before we talk about how the Kardashian family got famous, let’s take a look at someone who didn’t quite make it into the limelight as quickly. Her name is Caitlyn, and she was born in December of 1965. She grew up in Southern California and spent her childhood playing sports and listening to music.

It wasn't until high school that Caitlyn realized she was very different from other people. She struggled with her identity due to her gender expression and overall appearance.

Caitlyn began using male pronouns and developing what would become one of the defining characteristics of her life- hair gel. After experimenting with various products and styles, she eventually settled on his and hers full hairstyles with tons of product!

By college, Caitlyn had fully transitioned and was living as a woman. It's around this time when she first noticed media attention, mostly positive. But it took awhile for the public to recognize her as an expert in changing genders.

After graduating with a degree in psychology, Caitlyn made her way to New York City where she could pursue a career in fashion. Unfortunately, she was not able to find work as a model and needed something else to pay the bills.

That's when she started offering herself as a spokesperson and influencer for beauty products and diet supplements. While she may have been paid for these opportunities, they are never truly free.

Khloe Kardashian

Before there was Kourtney, Kim or Kylie Jenner, there was Kendall. The youngest of the Kardashian sisters got her first big break when she appeared as a contestant on MTV's hit show _The Hills_.

Since then, she has built an impressive career for herself by lending her name to various products. She is also very popular online, where she posts pictures and videos frequently.

In addition to posting about her own life, Kendall enjoys giving her opinions on other people and things. This made her famous in the media because everything she says gets discussed and debated.

She is well-known for being dramatic and outspoken, which are qualities that help her popularity grow more quickly.

Lamar Odom

After filming her first Vogue Magazine photoshoot in early 2010, Kylie Jenner was asked by the magazine if she had any big plans for the future. She replied with an unexpected announcement- she would start her own fashion line!

The next day, while leaving the studio, Kylie ran into stylist Robyn Chachron who happened to work at Karmaloft, one of the largest clothing stores in Canada. Chachon invited Kylie to come meet with their marketing team and see how they use social media to market clothes.

Kylie loved it and decided to follow in their footsteps. Since then, the Kardashian family has enjoyed quite the successful career as influencers.
