Kendall Jenner is one of the many successful ladies of the Kardashian-Jenner Clan who has built her own brand. 2016 has been a great year for Kendall and 2017 might be too. How much is Kendall Jenner’s worth in 2017? It’s more than $36 million and we’re sharing the details on Kendall Jenner’s net worth right here.

At this point, just having Kardashian and Jenner as your last name can make you millions. (Why do you think the Kardashian’s wouldn’t let Blac Chyna change her name). Kim, Kourtney, Khloe Kardashian and their sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, built their own brands and became some of the highest-earning celebrities in a matter of few years. Kim continues to be the richest Kardashian, but her two youngest sisters are not far behind. Kendall is the third richest among the sisters. She has risen to the top in the modeling world and is a social media maven. If you’re wondering how rich is Kendall Jenner in 2017, you’ve come to the right place. The reality star/ model’s net worth has grown from $12 million to more than $36 million. We’ve got all the details about Kendall Jenner’s net worth right here.

What is Kendall Jenner’s Net Worth in 2017?

According to latest figures, Kendall had an unbelievable net worth of $36.6 million in 2016. For someone barely out of her teens, earning this much goes to show just how good the Kardashians are in making money. 2017 just began, and Kendall may just increase her net worth further this year. Kendall may have jumpstarted her career with the help of Kim Kardashian and their mother, Kris Jenner, but she has now made her wealth by her own power. How do you think Kendall ranks with the other famous members of her family and other celebrities?

The following table illustrates Kendall’s rankings in comparison to her sisters and other celebrities. Kendall has a long way to catch up with Kim’s $150 million net worth, but she has surpassed Kourtney, Khloe, and Kylie already. Kendall’s net worth is almost equal to Hillary Clinton’s. Gigi Hadid, the upcoming supermodel, and Kendall’s BFF has only garnered a net worth of $4 million. But Hadid doesn’t have a mega-popular reality show to add to her model earnings like Kendall.

Kim Kardashian West $150 million (6 times smaller)
Kourtney Kardashian $20.4 million (1.7 times bigger)
Khloe Kardashian $20 million (1.8 times bigger)

How Much Money Does Kendall Jenner Make a Year?

Kendall began her career when she was only 14 years old. Now, at 21, she is a successful model with numerous endorsements, part of a popular reality show, and joint business ventures with Kylie. However, a large share of Kendall’s income comes from social marketing. ‘Momager’ Kris Jenner also takes her cut of the deals she secures Kendall and her other children. A look at the table below will show how Kendall’s earnings almost double every year since 2011.

2011 $4 million
2012 $9 million
2013 $15 million
2014 $22 million
2015 $29 million

Here’s the distribution of Kendall’s earnings from her modeling, social marketing, businesses, and KUWTK.

Kendall Jenner Gig Earnings Distribution (2016)
TV appearances and reality shows $17 million
Online Marketing $7.5 million
Modeling $10 million
Merchandising $18 million

KUWTK and Reality Shows

Kendall has been on Keeping Up With The Kardashians since 2007 when it first began. The Kardashian-Jenner clan members get different pays for their appearances on KUWTK. As of 2013, Kendall was paid $5000 per episode of KUWTK and its spin-offs which give her a paycheck of $100,000 per season. She also earned for appearing on other shows like I am Cait, Kocktails With Khloe, and Kim and Kourtney Take Miami. Kendall reportedly earned $17 million through her show in 2016 putting her at #3 on Forbes list of Top-Earning Reality stars. Ms. Kardashian West, of course, ranks #1 with $51 million and Kylie overtakes Kendall with $18 million.

Through Instagram and Twitter

While reality TV thrust Kendall into the limelight, social media gave her the success she enjoys to this day. In fact, Kendall practically started the money-making trend on social media. Kendall has over 72 million followers on Instagram and over 20 million on Twitter. The recent hiatus she took from social media didn’t do anything to her following. So anything she posts on these sites reaches tens of millions in one go and becomes a convenient medium for brands looking to endorse their products.


For instance, she shared pictures of herself in Calvin Klein and La Perla’s latest collections. Just a single post from Kendall Jenner reaches a combined total of 90 million followers, and many of them are likely to buy what Kendall is wearing. Kendall makes a pretty penny for each post on Instagram and Twitter, around $100,000. Considering how often she posts, she earns approximately $7.5 million a year through online marketing. Being famous is one thing, but monetizing that fame is something Kendall has turned into a skill.

Through Modeling and Endorsements

Sure, Kendall’s major earnings are from KUWTK and posting on Twitter and Instagram, but her primary career is modeling. Kendall broke into the modeling world at 14 years old after signing with Wilhelmina Models. Seven years down the line, Kendall has used her social media follower count to further her modeling career. Gisele Bundchen continues to remain the highest-earning model as listed by Forbes, but Kendall has ranked #3 among the world’s highest-earning models. With reported earnings of $10 million in 2016 alone, she’s fast catching up to Bundchen ($30 million) and Adriana Lima ($20 million).

Kendall’s first job was modeling for Forever 21 and her first runway was walking for Sherri Hill in the 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Since then, she has modeled for several brands and walked on major runways and also featured in various editions of Vogue. Her biggest accomplishment is walking for the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2015 and 2016. The 21-year-old has also signed major ad campaigns. She has shot editorials with LOVE and is the brand ambassador for Estée Lauder.

Kendall and Kylie’s Business Ventures

Entrepreneurship runs in the Kardashian-Jenner family. Kylie is living example of a successful teen entrepreneur. But Kendall also knows how to merchandise her popularity. Kendall has collaborated with Kylie to create two signature nail lacquers, a jewelry collection, a shoe and handbag line, a clothing line, toy line, and also a series of fiction novels.

The Jenner sisters recently released the sequel Time of the Twins: The Story of Lex and Livia, the sequel to Rebels: City of Indra: The Story of Lex and Livia. The sci-fi books, written with the help of ghost-writers didn’t sell enough.

Kendall once auctioned off 75 pieces from her wardrobe to raise money to raise money for a children’s hospital. Kendall and each of her sisters launched their own mobile app that is available for a paid subscription. The official Kendall Jenner App can be downloaded for around $2.99.

Where Does Kendall Jenner Spend Her Money?

When you’re one of the highest-earning models and reality stars, you’re bound to splurge in a few luxuries. At only 18, Jenner bought her first home LA’s exclusive neighborhood of Westwood. The luxurious two-bedroom high-rise condo was fully-furnished with appliances, and the building has a 24-hour valet, concierge and doorman, heated pool, fitness center, catering kitchen, and wine storage and comes with a reported price tag of $1.3 million.  Jenner also dropped $6.5 million in 2016 to purchase Emily Blunt and John Krasinski’s former home at LA’s Sunset Strip.

Jenner also apparently has a thing for vintage cars. On her 20th birthday, she bought a Chevrolet Corvette worth $100,000. In an interview with CNN, Jenner said she has a “weird addiction” for classic cars. She is also seen driving a 1965 Mustang, a Camaro GTO, an Audi convertible, and a Ferrari Spider matching with Kylie’s own. The exact prices of the cars are not known, but we’re sure they fetched for a pretty penny.

Property/Cars Price
Westwood Condo $1.3 million
Sunset Strip mansion $6.5 million
Chevrolet Corvette $100,000
Ferarri Spider $275,000
