#Kardashian Influence


Kris Humphries was voted the most hated person in the NBA by Forbes magazine. For those who don't follow the NBA, Kris Humphries is about as relevant in basketball as a pair of cleats. He wasn't voted most disliked for anything he's ever done on the court, but for what he did off the court:

Marrying Kim Kardashian.

When I saw the survey results, I was surprised. Here I am thinking that the survey was completely basketball-related and it was quite the opposite. Pop Culture influenced these results. Outside of the state of New Jersey, I doubt 1 in 250 people knew who Kris was prior to him dating Kim.

I have to give the Kardashians credit for completely embedding themselves into the lives of millions of people in the country. What started as a sex tape has turned into a multi-million dollar industry. Everything they touch turns to gold which is why guys seem to flock to them.


Guess who else made the list? Lamar Odom. One of the most liked guys on the court is one of the most disliked off of it. Why? You guessed it! He also married a Kardashian. I can't remember if it's Khloe or Kourtney, but she's the one who looks like a white Wendy Williams. "How you doing?"

I could care less about Khloe and Kourtney because they're just accessories. Kim is the main course and drives the money train. Now that she's attempting to get an annulment from Kris, I'm sure she'll move on to another high profile athlete or celebrity to keep the ball rolling. And who can blame her? In a country where ignorance trends on Twitter, can you blame her for cashing in on the country's inability to care about something worthwhile?

As for Kris Humphries, milk this for all you can, dude. You'll make more off of Kim then you'll make in the NBA unless you step your game up a bit. She's a walking cash register with a big booty, so as long as you can get your face on some episodes of her show, then do so. In fact, if I were you, I'd be talking to E! about a Kris Humphries Show to tell your side of the story.

Use that Kardashian influence to collect a few more pay checks. Happy New Year, everyone!

  1. I like how some people are famous simply by being famous, and others are infamous for associating with said famous people.

    What a world... The Kardashians and Justin Beiber are proof the world is ending soon...

  3. @ BragonDorn - Yes, it's hard to argue his point.

    @ LiI - At least Beiber sings and plays instruments. Kim is only famous for blowing a skin flute.

  4. I have a love/hate relationship w/ the Kardashians. On one hand, I respect their hustle. But it pisses me off that hard working people like us bust our butts everyday only to achieve a fraction of what they have. I should have ditched graduate school and made a sex tape, no?

  5. @ Tiffany - Yes, you should have. You would have either been rich and famous or at least in Nelly's "Tip Drill" video. Now that I think about it, graduate school was the right choice. You can always audition for "Jersey Shore" if times get hard.
