The new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians premiered on Hayu on Monday 6th August (U.K).

The hit reality TV show has been going for 15 seasons, gaining more fans every year.

Of course, TV deals are one-way to make money. But what does each member of the Kardashian family do to earn their pocket money?

Kim Kardashian-West

As a youngster, Kim was friends with the likes of Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie. In 2003 her fame rose after a sex-tape was leaked with her then-boyfriend, Ray J.

Kimberly worked as a stylist and in 2007 she and her sisters opened the clothing store, Dash. Kim and Kanye West tied the knot in 2014 and have three children together; North, 5, Saint, 3, and Chicago, 7 months.

Kim or Keeks is well known for her fashion style, her makeup brand KKW, racy photo shoots and selfies.

She broke the internet back in 2014 with that Paper magazine cover.

Kourtney Kardashian

Kourtney is the Kardashian’s firstborn.

Kourt has a tendency to be blunt with her words and is a bit different from her sisters, she likes all things organic.

Similar to her siblings though, Kourtney is keen on a selfie and models. Most recently she collaborated with clothing brand, Pretty Little Thing.

Can you believe she’s 39!

She has three kids with Scott Disick; Mason, 8, Penelope, 6 and Reign, 3.

She is well known for her petite frame and is often made fun of in the show for being short.

Scott Disick

Father to Kourtney’s three children.

Scott and Kourtney’s relationship was on-off for almost a decade as he battled with alcoholism, the death of his parents and staying faithful.

Scott is very much a part of the Kardashian crew, though. He often instigates the pranks on KUWTK and is close with all the family members.

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe has notably become more famous in recent years.

She has her own TV shows, ‘Revenge Body’ and ‘Kocktails with Khloe’.

Koko released a best-selling book in 2015, ‘Strong Looks Better Naked’.

Khloe was previously married to Lamar Odom but filed for a divorce due to his battle with drug addiction.

She has now found love with Canadian basketball player, Tristan Thompson.

They welcomed baby True Thompson in April 2018.

Robert Kardashian

Rob is the youngest child of Kris (now Jenner) and Robert Kardashian.

He has his own sock line called Arthur George.

He’s not been on the reality series much due to dealing with depression and anxiety.

He had a child with Kylie’s ex’s (Tyga) baby mother, Blac Chyna in November 2016. A baby girl named Dream Kardashian.

In April 2016 Rob and Blac Chyna got engaged. However, the wedding was called off after the birth of their first child.

Kendall Jenner

Kendall is a catwalk model and is friends with Bella and Gigi Hadid among many other model friends.

She openly struggles with anxiety on KUWTK. In season 15 episode 1, she is seen with a Gravity Blanket which is said to relieve anxiety. Kendall is often absent from the reality show as she is almost always travelling for her job.

Kylie Jenner

Kylie is the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner tribe.

But she is certainly achieving more than most 20-year-olds.

Kylie launched a cosmetics company in 2016.

Her lip kits are sold out in seconds and she’s been ranked the youngest/highest-earning celebrity on Forbes list.

Kylie’s approximate net worth is $900 million.

In 2018 Kylie had her first baby with musician, Travis Scott.

She had a baby girl, Stormi Webster on 1st February.

Caitlyn Jenner

Kendall and Kylie’s father Bruce, a retired Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete, used to feature in the KUWTK show.

Brandon, Brody and Burt, Bruce’s children from a previous marriage were in KUWTK occasionally.

He and Kris separated on 23rd March 2015, it was clear to KUWTK viewers that their relationship was on the rocks, with the pair even living in separate houses some of the time.

Bruce transitioned to a trans-woman in April 2015.

Her gender and name change to Caitlyn became official in September 2015.

68-year-old Caitlyn is now said to be dating 22-year-old Sophia Hutchins.

Eleven years later and we’re still hooked on America’s most entertaining family. They have certainly had some ups and downs, but thankfully we get to join the ride with them.

Any newbies to the KUWTK fan club –  you’re now up to speed.

Who will be in Keeping Up with the Kardashians season 15 episode 1?
