‘KUWTK’: Fans Speculate On Where Kendall Jenner’s Modeling Career Will Go After the Show Ends
Kendall Jenner is the second-youngest sibling in the Kardashian-Jenner family. When she was a teenager, Jenner began her modeling career. She has since become one of the most successful and highest paid models around.
However, now that the Kardashian-Jenners’ popular reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, is coming to an end, some fans wonder where Jenner will be going next.
People believe Kendall Jenner’s modeling career thrived due to ‘KUWTK’
Jenner was around 11 years old when KUWTK premiered and propelled her family to superstardom. She and her younger sister, Kylie, became popular among tweens and teens at the time, giving her a huge platform on social media.
Many onlookers believe that Jenner’s popularity and her family’s connections to influential folks allowed her to have a successful modeling career.
Of course, Jenner has often denied this. She has consistently claimed that she worked hard to get to where she is at and even went by just “Kendall” or “K” at castings to avoid using her family’s fame to get in the door.
“I’ve always been a hard worker: that’s in my blood,” she told Vogue Australia. “My parents raised me and my little sister to be that way and the rest of my sisters, too.”
Fans speculate on where Kendall Jenner’s modeling career will go after the show ends
With KUWTK coming to an end in 2021, the Kardashian-Jenners might no longer rely on TV to stay in the spotlight.
Fans on Reddit think this could affect Jenner’s brand, especially since modeling is usually a short-lived career that ends during one’s late 20s or 30s. Jenner is currently 25 years old.
However, given Jenner’s huge success and supermodel status, she could still be able to sustain a career in other parts of entertainment. One person wrote, “Kendall could also become like Naomi Campbell/Chrissy Teigen/Tyra Banks and get into different types of modelling/TV/other projects in general that keep her relevant.”
Of course, it’s important to note that social media is changing the modeling world as we know it. Another fan pointed out that, nowadays, runway jobs and magazine editorials are no longer the only places where models have to be.
“Instagram models are the new supermodels,” the fan said. “You don’t need to walk a runway or be in catalog, just post on Instagram and that’s a career. If you have a large following on Instagram you will always be in demand and able to make $$$.”
Jenner has over 140 million followers, which means she could make a lot of money from Instagram posts alone. Her own sisters are said to make hundreds of thousands of dollars per sponsored post on the platform.
Fans also try to guess what the other Kardashian-Jenner family members will do next
Jenner has always been extremely private about her life compared to her family members. As such, without KUWTK, she could keep an even lower profile.
However, the other Kardashian-Jenners could still try to show off their lives to fans in order to stay in the public consciousness. For example, some fans think the family members could try to establish their brands on platforms like YouTube and TikTok.
Some onlookers even think another KUWTK spinoff could happen.
These are only speculations as of now. Stay tuned to find out what the Kardashian-Jenners have up their sleeves.
