Why Kendall Jenner’s Fraternal Twin Brother Kirby Is the Kar-Jenners’ ‘Best Kept Secret’
There’s little the Kardashian-Jenner crew doesn’t share which is exactly what keeps fans interested. Kendall Jenner is arguably the most reserved but she has competition. The 24-year-old model’s “fraternal twin brother,” Kirby Jenner, premieres in a new series on Quibi. Here’s why Kirby is the family’s “best-kept secret.”
Kirby Jenner’s new show premieres on Quibi
Quibi is the streaming service of the moment. Its new series stars Kendall Jenner’s “fraternal twin brother,” Kirby Jenner. Kirby Jenner is executive produced by Kendall and Kris Jenner. The first two episodes (of eight) are available to watch now.
With the success of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kirby Jenner will pour the focus on the lone KarJenner, Kirby.
“I’m thrilled that Quibi viewers will get an inside look at the life of my twin brother and he’ll finally have the opportunity to shine in this series,” Kendall previously said in a statement regarding the show.
Ryan Seacrest, Howie Mandel, and McG are also behind the new limited series. Kirby Jenner can only be viewed on the digital platform unlike KUWTK which is on cable TV. Meg Whitman and Jeffrey Katzenberg created the series and Quibi prices range from around $5 to $7 per month.
Celebrity guests include Ray Romano, Ted Danson, and Beverly D’Angelo. Quibi’s selling point is that the content is generally 10 minutes or less and made to catch via mobile phones.
Kirby Jenner is the KarJenners’ ‘best-kept secret’
If you’re scratching your head at a Kar-Jenner’s secret existence, it’s because Kirby Jenner doesn’t exist. He’s a performance artist who runs a parody account as Kendall’s hidden twin. The star is known for photoshopping himself into Kendall’s photos. He began the craft in 2015 and has amassed quite a following — including the KarJenners.
In the trailer for Kirby Jenner, Kirby explains who he is in the most hilarious way.
“My name is Kirby Jenner, everyone in my family has already had their own reality shows. So when this network asked if I wanted to do my own show I was like, ‘I don’t know? I hadn’t really thought about it.’ But then my mom said yes,” he said in his “confessional.”
“My family is filled with people who do pretty important things,” he continued. “My twin sister Kendall models, Kourtney keeps having babies, Khloé’s tall, Kylie makes lipsticks, mom does business and my sister Kimberly is practicing to become a lawyer.”
Kirby makes it known it’s his turn to do “business” to keep up with his famous “siblings.” The show will feature past outtakes from KUWTK, an updated intro to include Kirby, and his interactions with his “mom,” Kris, and sisters, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian West, Khloé Kardashian, Kendall, and Kylie Jenner.
In the clip, Kardashian West deems Kirby the “best-kept secret of our generation,” and she’s right.

Ahead of Kirby Jenner‘s release, Kirby spoke with CNN about how the show came about.
“It actually wasn’t my decision at all. It was actually my mom’s idea (to do the show),” he said of Kris.
“[Kris] mentioned something about a guy named Quibi and how he wanted to do a reality show with me and I was like, ‘Whoa, there’s a guy named Quibi?’ I was so intrigued and she was like, ‘No, the network is called Quibi the guy’s name is Jeffrey Katzenberg. I Googled Jeffrey Katzenberg and I was floored to learn that’s the guy that made ‘Shrek!'”
As far as what will be shown throughout the eight episodes, Kirby promises a little KUWTK drama over things such as TV shows.
“I’ll argue with some of the family members from time to time. Kimberly [Kardashian West] can get pretty scrappy, but the fights that Kendall [Jenner] and I will have will be really small and petty,” he said.
“Like, we used to fight over what to watch on TV. You know, Kendall always wanted to watch Cops and criminal justice shows, and I was more into like SpongeBob and Rocket Power and cartoons.”
Kirby Jenner is available on Quibi now.
