Supermodel Kendall Jenner reveals that she thinks she used to be ‘ugly’ as a child, and is thankful that her glow-up has been very real.
In a bonus clip from episode 1 of season 15 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner was shown on the set of a photo shoot. The stunning 5’10” supermodel confidently posed, well-aware of her angles, lighting and confident in her own body. The model then went backstage where she got to talking with her hairstylist Jen Atkin.
Showing her a video montage of her appearances on the show as a kid, Kendall said, “You have to see this video. How ugly we were. The glow-up is actually just nuts.” In the video, a young Kendall and Kylie Jenner deliver some of their most iconic lines. When Kris Jenner tells a young Kendall that she can’t have money to splurge on new shoes because money doesn’t grow on trees, Kendall replies, “Yes it does, it’s paper.”
A younger version of Kylie Jenner can be seen parodying Kim Kardashian. Kylie has a golden sequin jacket wrapped around her shoulders and sunglasses perched on her nose. Looking into the mirror, she yells out, “I am Kim Kardashian. Everyone does what I say and soon I’ll be the queen of the world!” Kendall and Kylie also push each other around in the video.
A confused Jen asks, “What voice are you using?” Defending herself, Kendall says, “I’m a baby Jen, I’m like 14.” Jen informs her, “You sound like a Valley girl. You know what you look like? A housewife of Orange County that has like 3 kids. The glow up is real.”
Fans seem to agree with this sentiment, and many have taken to social media over the years to comment on Kendall Jenner’s glow up.

In the clip, Kendall also reveals that she uses a gravity blanket to calm down on days when she feels worked up. She tells Jen, “It helps with my anxiety, makes you feel like someone is hugging you.” Jen offers to test it out by talking about anxious things, but Kendall declines, saying she worries enough about the world as is. Jen reminds Kendall, “Don’t worry, just breathe You’re gonna be fine. If you have your blanket and the world comes to an end, you’ll be fine.”
In the episode, Kendall traveled from this photo shoot to the Christmas card shoot set up by her sister Kim Kardashian.
Episode 2 of season 15 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians releases on August 12.
