Here’s a look at Caitlyn Jenner’s net worth and the new ventures she’s taken on.
What’s Caitlyn Jenner’s net worth?
Caitlyn Jenner came to fame as Olympian Bruce Jenner. She spent much of her life recognized for her athletic abilities, but later developed a new vision for her life: living according to her terms. In 2015, Jenner came out as a trans woman, a few months following her divorce from Kardashian momager Kris Jenner.
Whereas Jenner has been extremely active in the transgender community, she’s always been a fan of public speaking. During some of the first episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Jenner could be seen attending events as a public (mostly motivational) speaker. And she’s continued to serve in this role. Then, in April 2022, Jenner was invited to join the FOX News family as a contributor.
Jenner has been open about how she feels toward transgender athletes, including Lia Thomas, and why she was hesitant to join Piers Morgan on his Fox Nation show Piers Morgan Uncensored.
In addition to spending time discussing politics and sports with fellow FOX News members, Jenner founded a new racing team, Jenner Racing. Jenner’s all-female team will compete in the 2022 W-Series and the former Olympian will serve as “the team principal overseeing the day-to-day running of the Jenner Racing team,” reports ESPN.
What are some of Caitlyn Jenner’s notable accomplishments?
Jenner first began her career as a highschool athlete and went on to compete for and win many championship titles. She later attended Graceland College (1969) on a football scholarship but was redirected to basketball and track after suffering a knee injury. While there are many moments in Jenner’s athletic career that are worthy of recognition, it was the gold medal the American decathlete won at the 1976 Olympic Games in Montreal that many remember her for.
Jenner no longer competes and is now recognized for her role as a transgender activist. She's also getting more involved in California’s world of politics. In 2021, Jenner ran for a special election for Governor of California, though she lost.
