    She’s prettier than Kim.

  5. shahram says:

    what!!!!!!!! English, Dutch, Irish or Scottish. it is ridiculous.
    I thought/think she is Persian or Turkish or Armenian or east-european.

    • follers says:

      Kendall Jenner is as WASP as they come in modern-day America. She isn’t even significantly Irish or anything, just mostly English.

    • angrygirl19 says:

      Wtf r u talking about. Kris is WHITE. Robert was the Krdashian girls’ father. Kendall’s father is Bruce, who’s WHITE. Wat r u talking about. And Kendall’s grandmother from Bruce’s side is Irish

      • follers says:

        Kendall’s paternal grandmother wasn’t fully Irish, just a bit.

        • angrygirl19 says:

          Gotcha! I was snapping at Shahram

          • shahram says:

            WTF are you saying?! I didn’t say her father is kardashian. just look at her face, her nose and her skin color and… . don’t be stupid, this girl is not related to yellow ( XD ) european. (@follers said: she looks like to english people, I doubt about it, I never be in england but she is not like english peoples I have seen on TV. maybe a remote village in england has these kind of faces and skin color. :D
            just search “sedef avci” in google. she’s a turkish actress. I didn’t mean she is certainly persian/turkish/armenian/easteuropean but I mean she is from this side of the world not that side. XD

    • thomas1987 says:

      She looks very Dutch to me. So I don’t know what your talking about.
      not all northern Europeans are blonde with pale skin .
      I think you should travel more to learn about the diversity in Europe, there are quite exotic looks there.
      and so many people in England, ireland, have black hair with olive skin . Have you ever heard of Collin Farrell for example who is quite tan. and Kendall actually looks alot like Sandra bullock, who is German. Fix your definition of “white”….

      • stonelord says:

        well said, Thomas. Nearly half of native English people are not blue eyed and almost half of the Irish have dark brown hair. There has been a variety of looks since 3000 BC…

    • Check7t says:

      Looks very English to me.

    • Dogg says:

      East Europeans look nothing like Persian, Turkish and Armenian people.

    • sparkles180 says:

      Same here! I thought she was ethnic or south european. She doesn’t look english to me.

    • J420 says:

      I have been to England, Scotland, Ireland and the Netherlands and I’ve seen people who look like Kendall Jenner before. She looks very English so I don’t know what you’re talking about.
