Biography

Boyishly handsome, personable, and at one time dubbed the "World's Greatest Athlete," Bruce Jenner vaulted to international fame after winning the decathlon in the 1976 Olympics. Jenner's popularity continued well beyond the Olympic closing ceremony, with high-profile endorsements - most famously with Wheaties cereal - as well as network television correspondence work in the years immediately after keeping him in the public eye. It was not long before acting offers came pouring in, with Jenner appearing in such fare as the questionable musical "Can't Stop the Music" (1980) alongside disco-era act The Village People, and the made-for-TV effort "Grambling's White Tiger" (NBC, 1981). In the decade that followed his Olympic victory, he found a welcoming home for a time on episodic television, making guest appearances on shows like "CHiPs" (NBC, 1977-1983) and "Murder She Wrote" (1984-1996). After testing the waters with reality series such as the odious "I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!" (ABC, 2002-03), Jenner found himself surrounded by a bevy of curvaceous brunettes - his wife Kris, and step-daughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé - in the mystifyingly successful reality series "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" (E!, 2007- ). Although he had made a reputation for himself as a respected spokesperson, motivational speaker, and businessman, it was Jenner's indelible status as his tabloid television personality of put-upon dad that threatened to eclipse even his fame as an Olympic legend.
