Here's How Much The Kardashians Have Changed Since Their Show's First Season Aired

Seasons came and went. Movies arrived and disappeared from Netflix. Presidents changed office. And through it all, one thing remained constant...

The Kardashians.

It's been 12 whole years since Keeping Up With the Kardashians first premiered on E! for our viewing pleasure (or guilty pleasure, if you please). Now, they're back for a 16th season.

Let's take a look at where they started, and where they are now. And remember: you clicked on this article, so you have no one to blame but yourself for being here. Love you, mean it!

Then: Kourtney

In season 1, Kourtney was just introducing her boyfriend, Scott Disick, to the Kardashian brood.

The first episode showed the two on a tense date, where Scott wouldn't allow Kourtney to use her phone at dinner, and Kourtney got angry at Scott for wanting to spend time with her on his terms.

In a lot of ways, they never really got past that dinner.

Now: Kourtney

Kourtney and Scott have split. They have three children together: Mason, Penelope, and Reign, and they very happy co-parents to them.

Kourtney just launched her brand, Poosh, the purpose of which I have yet to figure out. Catch me signing up for that waitlist, though.

Then: Kendall

Kendall was just 12-years-old when KUWTK debuted in October of 2007.

She and Kylie's main roles on the show focused on them trying more grown-up things that Kris disapproved of.

In the pilot, Kendall and Kylie got busted for trying to tend bar at their parents' anniversary party.

Now: Kendall

I think we all know what Kendall is up to these days.

After Kim helpfully shoved Kendall into a modeling career, she's made a massive name for herself in the fashion industry.

These days, she works with brands like Chanel, Adidas, and Calvin Klein.

Then: Kris Jenner

The matriarch of the Kardashian family hasn't changed much from her initial debut, tbh.

Same job, same hair, same attitude. In the first episode, she and Caitlyn were planning their 16th wedding anniversary.

Now: Kris Jenner

Nothing demonstrates Kris' glow-up more than this snap of her Diana freakin' Ross.

Now, Kris is divorced, upped her style game, made some pretty famous friends, and...oh yeah. She's really rich.

Then: Khloé


Oh Khloé, if only you knew the wild road ahead of you.

Back when she had her original face and body, Khloé served more as the family punching bag and wisecracker.

She never let anything go uncommented on, but she also was the brunt of the most criticism from her mother and sisters.

Now: Khloé

Two spin-offs, an ex-husband, and a daughter later, Khloé is completely unrecognizable.

After a fallout with the father of her daughter, True, Khloé is now facing life as a single parent.

However, she has a very successful clothing brand (Good American) under her belt, and the support of her sisters. She's still just as sassy — sometimes, to a fault.

Then: Kylie

Kylie was just 10 years old when KUWTK hit our screens.

She was already bolder than her sister, Kendall, marching straight up to Kim's pole dancing lesson and trying it out for herself.

At 10.

Oh boy.

Now: Kylie

How hasn't Kylie changed?

She is now one of the most successful women in the world, with a massively successful beauty brand, Kylie Cosmetics, helping land her in the "billionaire" category.

She also became a mother at 20, having her daughter, Stormi, with Travis Scott.

Then: Kim

Kim began KUWTK fresh off of the sex tape controversy that made her famous.

In the first episode, she was offered a guest appearance on Tyra, where she'd get the chance to talk about the experience. She was less than enthused.

Now: Kim

Kim has blown past her and Ray J's sex tape.

She's been married and divorced, had three children (North, Chicago, and Saint) with Kanye West, and one on the way! She also started her own beauty line, KKW Cosmetics.

Then: The whole family

E! Entertainment | maddisonharley4989

The original cast of Keeping Up With the Kardashians consisted of Kris, Caitlyn (then known as "Bruce"), Kendall, and Kylie, Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, and Rob Kardashian, with frequent appearances by Scott Disick.

Now: The whole family

The cast has changed a lot since that first episode.

Rob no longer appears on the show, and neither does Caitlyn. The show primarily focuses on the journeys of Kris, Kylie, Khloé, Kim, Kourtney, and Kendall.

Scott is still there, and all of the girls' children also play a role. Kanye appears from time to time.

Things are crazy different these days

Now that everyone has kids (with the exception of Kendall — she's busy!), the show has evolved and changed in a lot of ways.

But some things endure: the drama will always be there, and we'll always be ready for it.
