50 years from when we have our 6th female president and she commissions a new version of Mount Rushmore to be built somewhere in the Valleys of Silicon Valley; Steve Jobs’s face will be the only one worthy of being erected on to that mountain.

Ever since the birth of the reality show haters everywhere have been saying the Kardashians are famous for being famous, they don’t do anything. Countless reality shows, product endorsements, clothing lines, and makeup lines I guess can be put in the category of doing nothing. But now more than ever one of them can add video game curator to her job title.
Earlier last month Kim Kardashian teased her new video game with a picture of her in the studio with a microphone. I thought we would be getting the long awaited sequel to her
critically acclaimed song "Turn it up (Jam)". But nope. Fast forward to June 27th and she released her first of many (I’m sure) games for ios devices entitled Kim Kardashian: Hollywood. In the game your goal is to become an A-list celebrity doing various jobs and going to photoshoots and that type of thing.
The app itself is free in the appstore. But according to a recent Bloomberg profile the app could generate at least $200 Million by the end of the year.
In the game there are in app purchases where you can pay actual cash to get more “K-Stars” to further yourself in the game to get to that A list level faster.Tracie from Jezbel found that she spent nearly $500 on the in app purchases.
Bonus: Popular Youtuber KidFury reviews the game below in a hilarious 6 minute video that will have you wanting to download the game and add it to your list of never-ending addictions.
The app is the 5th highest grossing app in the app store since it’s release. With such a huge success it’s only time before they make this game available to Android users as well which will generate even more revenue for Kim and the publisher Glu Mobile. That means more pictures on Kim’s instagram flaunting of all the clothing you will never be able to afford.
In 2012 her and her family negotiated a whopping $40 million contract for three more seasons. 4 years later and a new contract has been negotiated with a bigger payout than the last one including two new spin offs coming over the next two years. The family itself has made the E! network. Before them no one really watched that network. But with the additions of their successful programming it has made it possible for other shows to have success there.
We can credit this all to momager Kris Jenner. With her 10% manager cut she has made the Kardashians profitable in every market. You can’t escape them. They are in clothing department stores, moving to technology and on your tv 24 hours a day. Thank you for gifting us with so many guilty pleasures. We are as a society forever in debt to her.
