Biography

Caitlyn Jenner (formerly Bruce) was dubbed the "World's Greatest Athlete," vaulting 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 her in the public eye. It was not long before acting offers came pouring in, with Jenner appearing in such fare as the 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, she 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 "I'm a Celebrity - Get Me Out of Here!" (ABC, 2002-03), Jenner found herself surrounded by a bevy of curvaceous brunettes -wife Kris, and step-daughters Kim, Kourtney and Khloé - in the reality series "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" (E!, 2007- ). Although she had made a reputation for herself as a respected spokesperson, motivational speaker, and businessperson, it was Jenner's indelible status as a tabloid television personality threatened to eclipse even her fame as an Olympic legend. Yet a new transition made headlines around the world in April 2015 when Jenner confirmed months of media speculation about her gender identity, stating emphatically "I am a woman." On June 1, 2015, Caitlyn Jenner made her public debut in a glamorous Vanity Fair cover photo by Annie Liebovitz.
