They're best known as the unabashedly glamorous sisters of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (KUWTK) fame, but behind the glitz and hype are five of the most enterprising business personalities to have emerged from reality TV— Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner.
Binding these powerhouses of innovation in media and fashion together is their mother Kris Jenner, the mastermind behind the success of KUWTK and manager of their estates.
Often called 'momager', Kris Jenner is worth a whopping $268 million, according to Forbes.

The Kardashian empire has grown exponentially following the massive success of their reality TV show with each family member leveraging the fame they earned to build phenomenally big businesses of their own or become big brands themselves.
But who is the richest among them and what exactly do they do that rakes in the big bucks? Here's a look.
5. Kendall Jenner net worth: $63 million
Kendall is Kris and Bruce Jenner's first born and supposedly the most reserved of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
As of March 2022, she is the highest-paid model in the world, and is worth an estimated $63 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
She started modelling at the age of 13 and has since built a successful career walking the ramp at the New York, Milan, and Paris fashion weeks for more than a decade.
Not only does she have a successful career as a runway model, she also has big-brand endorsements, including Chanel, Pepsi, Donna Karan, Victoria's Secret, Tommy Hilfiger, Fendi, Michael Kors and Calvin Klein, to name a few.
She has an enormous following on Instagram and is said to charge an estimated average price of $665,465-$1,109,108 per post for paid collaboration.
4. Khloe Kardashian net worth: $70 million
The youngest daughter of Kris and Robert Kardashian, Khloe has built herself a successful career in the media, starring in reality TV shows including Khloé & Lamar with her ex-husband Lamar Odom.
She also participated in the second season of The Celebrity Apprentice, co-hosted the second season of the US adaptation of The X Factor, and hosted the Revenge Body makeover television show.
Khloe is also involved in the retail and fashion industries along with Kourtney and Kim.
She is also the co-founder of the Good American clothing line.
She has also served as the executive producer of Twisted Sisters and Twisted Love for the Investigation Discovery channel.
3. Kourtney Kardashian net worth: $91 million
The oldest of the Kardashian sisters, Kourtney has been in the news following her lavish wedding with Blink 182 drummer Travis Baker in Italy, but there's more she's famous for.
Aside from getting a hefty pay cheque of $7 million-$10.5 million per season for her appearance on E!'s KUWTK, she now earns $11.6. million-$17.5 million per season for The Kardashians on Hulu (All Kardashians and Jenners got paid equal amounts as confirmed by Khloe in an interview with Variety).
Her lifestyle website, Poosh, is a main source of income for the newlywed, earning her approximately $4.3 million a year.
She is also involved with her mother in a kids clothing line called Smoosh, and partners with her sisters in their various skincare and cosmeticsbusinesses.
2. Kylie Jenner net worth: $984 million
Her net worth was then adjusted to a little less than $1.27 billion by Forbes.
Since then, her wealth has further diminished due to the drop in demand in the cosmetics industry during the pandemic.
Her net worth in 2022 is estimated to be approximately $984 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
As Instagram's second-most influential person - with more than 305 million followers in 2022 - (Christiano Ronaldo is the most influential), Kylie charges approximately $947,586-$1.4 million per post and mostly endorses luxury fashion and beauty brands.
1. Kim Kardashian net worth: $2.5 billion
From being Paris Hilton's stylist, to becoming famous over a sex tape, to now owing multiple businesses, Kim has seized every opportunity.
While critics and admirers have described her as epitomising the idea of being famous for being famous, the fact remains that she knew how to ride the fame wave to join the likes of Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Bill Gates on the Forbes’ annual World’s Billionaires List.
Apart from multiple endorsement deals and being a huge social media influencer, she now runs the very successful Skims line of shapewear and KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance lines, which are soon to be rebranded following her divorce from Kanye West.
