In the biggest leak for the Kardashian-Jenner family since Kim’s sex tape was released by ex-boyfriend Ray J, the reality stars’ personal apps suffered a security hack, exposing hundreds of thousands of subscribers’ personal information.
Collectively, the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are expected to pull in an estimated $32 million a year, based on calculations that in the first 24 hours, nearly 900,000 people downloaded them and it will cost $142.53 per year for just one. But will it be Kylie, Kendall, Khloe, or Kim who comes out on top? Surprisingly enough — drumroll please — Kylie! As of September 15, the day the after launch, the 18-year-old significantly led the pack with 663,270 users. The others were very far behind, listed in order: Khloe with 96.635, Kim with 80,679, and Kendall with 50,756.
But before you go cry the rest of them rivers, let’s put things into perspective. It makes perfect sense Kylie would be #winning. She has the most followed Snapchat account, intriguing millions of wannabe tweens on an up-to-the-minute basis with her lip grabbing boyfriend, nipple piercings, and inane commentary on cars and home decor. The app just means the kids, who are already addicted to their smartphones, get even more of that.
Also, any sibling knows that sometimes the glory has to be shared. Kim can’t be the best at everything. The mom currently has the second most followed Instagram account behind Taylor Swift and the as soon as she posts a picture of her next offspring, she’s sure to take back the crow from the “Bad Blood” singer. And don’t feel bad for Kendall. Only a few years into her modeling careers, she’s already ranked as one of the top earners by Forbes. If there’s anyone to send your sympathies to it’s Khloe Kardashian who just can’t catch a break. One of her introductory videos documenting her cookie jar OCD might’ve gained attention, and even surpassed Kim in downloads, but she’s still second fiddle to someone. When is Khloe’s time to shine? Kourtney has babies, Kim has Kanye, Kendall has runways, and Kylie has lip injections. Khloe needs something other than exercising and losing weight. She needs a win.
Popularity ebbs and flows though so I’m not overly concerned with any of their well-beings. And if I was the judge of the contest, North West would obviously be the clear winner. Can’t wait to see what technology’s like in 2032.
