The oldest member of the Kardashian family is the shortest at just 5 feet tall

The Kardashians have been in the spotlight for going on two decades. Since the early Keeping Up With the Kardashians days, fans have often wondered how tall each of the family members is. From Kendall Jenner’s modeling career being a tell-tale sign she’s the tallest of the family, the other stars of the show are question marks to viewers. With 6 ft 9 Tristan Thompson helping Kris Jenner reach items in her kitchen in The Kardashians last season, there’s another signifier she’s not the tallest of her brood.

The Kar-Jenners may have dated some super-tall basketball stars, but some of the sisters’ heights don’t compare at all to their ex-partners. The eldest of the siblings is the shortest, while one of the youngest ranks tallest in her family. Fans are wondering “how the genes work” given how Kris Jenner and the late Robert Kardashian Sr don’t appear to be particularly tall, with many taking to a Reddit thread on the subject.

How tall are The Kardashians?

Kardashians fans are convinced genes in the family have skipped a generation when it comes to some of the stars’ heights.

Taking to a Reddit thread, many people gather their theories and thoughts on the Kar-Jenners’ “tallness and shortness.”

From shortest to tallest, there’s a whole one-foot difference in their heights.

Kourtney Kardashian is the shortest

Some avid Kardashians viewers may have been able to take a wild guess that Kourtney Kardashian, 45, is the shortest member of her family.

The mom of four stands at five feet (1.55m), which is four inches under the USA average female height.

Kourtney is a whopping nine inches shorter than her husband, Travis Barker, 48, who stands at 5 ft 9.

Kim’s the second smallest family member

Standing at just below the average height for women is the second oldest Kardashian – Kim.

Kris and Kylie are similar heights

Mom and daughter duo Kris, 68, and Kylie Jenner, 26, are not only two peas in a pod for their personalities but they’re pretty much the same height, too.

Both ladies are just above average at 5 ft 6 (1.68m).

Kylie is famously Kris’ “favorite child” – something which the two share a joke about during season 5.

Khloé’s almost as tall as her model sister

Next tallest is gym queen herself, Khloé Kardashian, 39.

She’s 5 ft 10 (1.7m) which is pretty tall – but nowhere near as tall her ex, Tristan, who is 6 foot 9 (2.06m).

Taking to Reddit, fans think Khloé “got her genes from her mom,” writing: “Kim and Kourtney got short genes from their dad’s side. Khloe and Rob got tall genes from their mom’s side. Pretty straightforward.”

The Hulu star has faced all kinds of rumors in her life including ‘OJ Simpson being her father’ – something she squashed with a DNA test during KUWTK.

Kendall’s ‘athletic’ figure makes her the tallest

Swooping in as the family’s tallest sister is model Kendall Jenner.

She stands at a similar height to her half-brother, Rob Kardashian, who no longer appears on the Hulu show.

Kendall and Rob are both 5 foot 11 (1.8m).
