So if you’ve been on the internet over the last few days you are forgiven if you are as confused as we are as to who on earth Kirby Jenner is. At this point we all probably know a (scarily) large amount about each of the Kar-Jenners, so who is Kirby and why have we never heard of him before?
The first stage of this investigation pointed us in the direction that he is Kendall’s secret fraternal twin brother. I mean, it sounds unrealistic that this sibling has been hidden from the limelight for 24 years, but if there’s one family who knows how to keep a secret…
The second stage of this investigation pointed us in a much more realistic (if slightly eccentric) direction: it’s all fictional.
So, who is Kirby? Kirby is a self-described “amateur model”, social media personality and comedian who has been pretending to be Kendall’s ‘secret fraternal twin brother’ for years by photoshopping himself into photos of the Kar-Jenner clan. And tbf, they’re hysterical.
Kirby currently has 1.3 million followers on Instagram and has just embarked on his own Quibi show where, wait for it, Kendall and Kris Jenner are the executive producers. The show is completely based on the Kirby character and Kim, Kris, Kendall, Khloe and Kourtney even guest star in it.
The show follows Kirby finally introducing himself to the world. The trailer sees him saying of his famous family “Kendall models, Kourtney keeps having babies, Khloe’s tall, Kylie makes lipsticks, Mom does business, my sister Kimberly is practicing to be a lawyer”. We can hear Kris making calls to E! as we speak.
“Everyone in my family has already had their own reality shows”, says Kirby, “So when this network asked if I wanted to do my own show, I was like ‘I don’t know I haven’t really thought about it’. But then my mom said ‘Yes’”.
So, now Kris is momager-ing kids that aren’t even her own?! We’re expecting a Keeping Up With Kirby spin-off by the end of the year.
