Think you know everyone in the Kardashian family? Think again.
Does Kirby Jenner ring a bell? Self-dubbed as an amateur model, Kirby portrays the fraternal twin brother of model Kendall Jenner.
Hey does anyone have a WebMD login I could use? I basically swallowed a bucket of sand and am worried it's gonna form a rock in my stomach. Not the first time this has happened and I honestly just wanna be prepared haha. #Thanks #Vogue #RockFormation #TheySpelledMyNameWrongLOL #fashion106.8k Likes, 1,147 Comments - Kirby Jenner (@kirbyjenner) on Instagram: "Hey does anyone have a WebMD login I could use?

Sure, they have the same brown tresses, but apart from that, there is not much of the Jenner genetics going around for Kirby. Well, that is because he is not an actual Jenner like true-blooded Rob Kardashian.
They Go Way Back
Kirby started with his Kendall's twin brother parody way back in 2015. Since then, he has amassed over 1 million followers entertained by his comic posts.
Even celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Gigi Hadid and Sophie turner are following Kirby on Instagram. Kylie is known to "like" several of Kirby's photos alongside none other than herself.
Kirby Gets Rewarded
For years, the social media star has been calling the Kardashian sisters his own and momager Kris Jenner, his mom.
While Kirby occasionally adds himself into photos with other celebrities like Kanye West and Demi Lovato, he pretty much stays into character as le Kirby of ze Kardashian-Jenners.
Now, years of effort bears fruition. Kirby has been tapped by tech titans Jeffrey Katzenberg and Meg Whitman, the founders of the upcoming mobile video service Quilbi.
Umm I guess I have my own @quibi show now?? We're gonna call it "Kirby Jenner" cause it's easy for me to remember and mom said "it's fine." #KirbyOnQuibi #ComingSoon20.2k Likes, 117 Comments - Kirby Jenner (@kirbyjenner) on Instagram: "Umm I guess I have my own @quibi show now??

Kirby made the announcement via Instagram and since then, his followers are left perplexed whether or not it is legit news. Previously, Kirby would joke about starting a garage sale at Kylie Jenner's house.
Get This Show on the Road
Good news: Kirby's show is legit. Executive producers include Ryan Seacrest and Kendall Jenner herself. Wonderland and Ventureland will produce the series in association with E! Entertainment.
Kendall and Kris are expected to make cameos in the Quilbi series. Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, and Kylie are also set to make a surprise cameo in what is seen to be another spin-off of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
Started a fresh new line of turtlenecks with Mom and Kim called Turtleneck Klub and each turtleneck comes with a gold shield that welcomes you to the Turtleneck Klub! I wanted to give out a free turtle too but apparently they'd all die in shipping or something idk. Also, we only have 2 sizes lol #TurtleKrew123.6k Likes, 1,552 Comments - Kirby Jenner (@kirbyjenner) on Instagram: "Started a fresh new line of turtlenecks with Mom and Kim called Turtleneck Klub and each turtleneck..."
Kendall has hopped in on the parodying and said in a statement, "I am thrilled for Kirby to finally have the opportunity to shine and for Quilbi viewers to get an inside look at the life of 'my twin brother.'"
Kirby said the show will be called "Kirby Jenner" because it is easier for him to remember and because his pretend-mom Kris gave him the go-signal. "Thanks , Mom" Kirby said addressing Kris.
