How did the world’s highest-paid model get that title? Hint: her income isn’t only from modeling! Kendall Jenner’s net worth is staggering thanks to her high-profile modeling contracts and her involvement in her family’s popular reality TV series, Keeping Up With the Kardashians. 

While Kendall doesn’t quite match up with her younger sister Kylie’s status as the not-so-youngest “self-made” billionaire, she is perhaps the only member of the Kardashian family to branch out from their lifestyle and e-commerce pursuits outside of KUWTK. Instead of following momager Kris Jenner’s interests when it comes to Kardashian-brand business expansion, the eldest Jenner daughter began to pursue her own career: modeling.

Kendall has been in the modeling industry for over a decade, originally signing with Wilhelmina Models in July 2009. Since then, she’s catapulted to supermodel status, partnering with luxury brands from Calvin Klein to Dior. But how much, exactly, does she make from her stints behind the camera and on the runway?

Read on below to find out just *how much* Kendall Jenner’s net worth is in 2022, and catch up on episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians and Hulu’s The Kardashians below.

How much did Kendall Jenner make from Keeping Up With the Kardashians?

Since 2017, it’s been generally understood that each KarJenner sister received the same salary from Keeping Up With the Kardashians per season. Momager Kris Jenner essentially confirmed as much in an interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. “Everybody gets paid pretty much equally, because we all film a lot and we all work hard, and we’ve created this show and this brand for the last decade. Everybody’s happy,” she said.

At the time, the KarJenner sisters were estimated to be earning $4.5 million per season. While sisters like Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé may earn a little more thanks to their production credits on the series, the Jenner sisters likely saw a salary in line with that baseline estimate.

How much is Kendall Jenner’s The Kardashians salary?

Following the series finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the KarJenner family made their return to reality TV with their Hulu show, The Kardashians. According to Variety, the series, which premiered in April 2022, comes with a nine-figure salary deal that will be split evenly among the family.

Kendall’s sister Khloé confirmed to the publication that each member of the family will receive the same salary. “We are all equals,” she said, noting that the monetary aspect for their contract negotiations was an important part of their decision to return to reality TV. “It definitely played a factor because we give so much of our personal lives up for entertainment,” Khloé explained. “We always have our private family conversations, and we’re pretty brutal, me and my sisters, with what we will settle for or not settle for.”

“But not all money is good money,” Khloé said, adding that the Kardashian family also wanted their next opportunity to align with their goals. “It has to be a good fit, and Hulu was just the perfect fit for us. It can’t just be for monetary gain. That doesn’t seem to work for us.”

She added, “It sounds so old fashioned, but we are people who applaud ourselves in so many other facets of our life that we are ahead of the time. We wanted to be with someone that’s tech forward, so we’re with the times. For us to be still on cable was just not so on brand for us. My mom deals with all the negotiating, and we let her do that because it is uncomfortable. She fights like a pit bull. She loves to do it and we let her do it.”

Walt Disney Television’s chairman of entertainment, Dana Walden, also confirmed that the Kardashian family’s deal for their Hulu show did not come cheap. “We stepped up to a great deal that they very much deserve,” Walden told Variety, suggesting, however, that the family was well worth the investment. “Who would you want more for your unscripted slate than the Kardashians? They perfectly symbolize our strategy, which is taking big shots, but the right shots, and betting on incredible talent and best-in-class opportunities in each genre.”

What is Kendall Jenner’s net worth?

So, what’s Kendall Jenner’s net worth today? According to Celebrity Net Worth, Kendall Jenner’s net worth as of 2022 is estimated to be $45 million.

In addition to her salaries from Keeping Up With the Kardashians and The Kardashians, Kendall’s net worth got to the place it is today due to her modeling career. While Kendall’s been in the modeling industry for years, it’s safe to say that her career really began to reach new heights when she signed with The Society Management in 2013. With this new contract, she started shifting her focus to high fashion. Which is to say, Kendall suddenly had far more lucrative deals with high-profile brands—from Marc Jabobs, Givenchy, and Dior, to Balmain, Dolce & Gabbana, and of course, her memorable deal with Calvin Klein Jeans.

Like her sisters, Kendall also makes a decent living on Instagram. With over 127 million followers, the young model can earn anywhere from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars on sponsored posts. Even the ones that, uh, turn sour.

The Kardashians is available to stream on Hulu. Here’s how to watch it for free.
