After last night’s long-awaited debut of the sixth – and “final” – season of The Hills, I found myself wondering how exactly these spoiled reality show stars make a living. Sure, they get paid ridiculous amounts to act like tools on TV and make out with their hussied-up “co-stars”, but after all is said and done, what are their real careers?
Take Brody Jenner for example. Brody’s character on the show is the token good-looking guy that every girl fights over. I’ll admit, I’ve found myself ogling over his boyish good looks from time to time. But aside from his “job” on the show I’m not exactly sure what he’s qualified to do.
He obviously comes from good genes. His dad is the infamous Olympic decathlon gold-medal winner, Bruce Jenner. Bruce also happens to star in a recurring role on another hit reality show that you may have heard of called “Keeping up with Kim the Kardashians”. But the difference between the two Jenner’s roles is that you can tell that Bruce knows that his reality stardom is a bunch of crap. I have a bit of a soft spot for Bruce even though he did almost succumb to the Hollywood pressures with all that facial surgery (not a good move, Bruce). In my opinion, he’s the funniest and most relatable person on KUWTK. It could be because he actually has a real job aside from the show – motivational speaker – or that he is the only voice of reason in the Kardashian house (which I admit, is probably a pretty easy position to come by among those loony girls).
Anyways, back to Brody. Seriously, what does he do? His Wikipedia page claims that he has three occupations. Guess what they are? Wait for it…. wait…. for….. it……
- TV Personality
- Socialite (!!!!!!!!)
I think I heard once that he was into modeling, but I’ve never actually seen him model in anything. And, socialite?! Since when did that become an occupation?! I am astonished by how jaded Hollywood is to actually *think* that a SOCIALITE is an occupation.
After The Hills is over, what will he do with himself? How will he make money? Will he fall back on his socialite certifications and training to support himself and his family? Maybe he’ll write a book about how to be a socialite? (Sadly, I think Paris Hilton has already beat him to the punch.)
Well, good luck with all that, Brody. I am sure that your socialite career will make you quite prosperous in the years to come.
