In spite of growing up in the shadows of her infamous extended brood, reality television star Kendall Jenner managed to carve her own path and launch a promising career in the modeling world. Kendall Nicole Jenner was born on Nov. 3, 1995 in Los Angeles to Bruce Jenner, former Olympic champion, and Kris Jenner, ex-wife of the late Robert Kardashian, a lawyer who played a key role in the O.J. Simpson legal saga. Her middle name was, in fact, Kris Jenner's homage to her friendship with O.J.'s ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, who had been famously murdered the year before. She had a younger sister, Kylie Jenner, who also grew up in the public eye as a member of the infamous family on their hit reality show "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" (E!, 2007- ). The series followed the wild and crazy antics of Jenner's three older half-sisters, Kim, Kourtney and Khloé, and half-brother, Robert Kardashian, Jr. She also appeared on the show's spin-offs, including "Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami" (E!, 2009- ) and "Khloé & Lamar" (E!, 2011). In spite of her notorious family's public arguments and relationship dramas, Jenner appeared on the show to lead a seemingly normal teenager's life, which included curfews, allowances, and bickering with her over-protective father. She attended Sierra Canyon School, a private school in Chatsworth, CA where she was a member of the cheerleading squad.
