Caitlyn Jenner is an American reality TV star and a former athlete. Her estimated net worth is somewhere around 100$ million.
Caitlyn Jenner (Bruce Jenner) was born on October 28, 1949 in Mount Kisco, New York. She grew up in a large family with two sisters and one brother. Her mother was a homemaker and her father was an abortist. She was always an athletic child and most of her time during high school was spent playing sports.
Her favorite sports were football and track, so it was no wonder she later pursued an athletic career. Cait had problems with reading and writing, it was later discovered that she had dyslexia. The condition didn’t stop her from getting good grades at school or to later attend college.
She concentrated more on her football practices and trainings, and after high school she accepted a football scholarship from Graceland College. It was there that she mastered her skills to perfection and was ready to compete in big competitions.
During one practice, Caitlyn had hurt her knee pretty seriously, so she had to discharge her football career. Never the less, her coach noticed her talent in running and offered her a chance to practice with the track team. She accepted and, little did she knew, that this will make her famous later on in life.
Caitlyn, or then Bruce, was a real champion on the tracks. She was fast and her perseverance was something that was impressing. She concentrated on decathlon discipline and continued to pursue an athletic career, after graduating from Graceland College with a degree in physical education.
After graduating from college, Caitlyn continued her decathlon practice and often worked night shifts so she could train at night and prepare for competitions. Her hard training and will to succeed got her into the Olympic Team in 1972.
Preparations for the Olympic Games were tough and Cait did everything she could to stay focused and to get into the best shape of her life. All the hard work and dedication finally paid off during the 1976 Olympic Games when Cait won a gold medal in decathlon.
After receiving a gold medal for something that was usually reserved for Soviet runners at that time, the U.S. people saw Cait as a national hero and someone to be proud of as a country. She returned to the United States and the media went wild for this talented athlete.
Caitlyn was then a man, and she hadn’t yet come out as transgender women, so for many women of that time, Bruce was a man of the year in every sense. She received many rewards and was, together with the rest of the Olympic team, a national pride.
With fame, came many endorsements and sponsorships for this, once struggling athlete. She landed deals with Minolta, Buster Brown Shoes and Tropicana. These were only some of the large brands that endorsed Caitlyn after her brilliant Olympic performance.
She often appeared on TV shows and interviews, which received a large number of viewers every time. Probably the biggest endorser at that time was the cereal brand called Wheaties. They were largely popular during eighties.
Wheaties used Caitlyn (Bruce’s) picture that was taken during Olympic triumph and put it on their package. She became the spokesperson and brand face for their company. They are still in contract with Cait, even though her picture is not on their packaging.
From all the endorsements and sponsorships, Caitlyn was able to start her own business and maintain her wealth even now. She is the vice-president of the JennerNat and an owner of the Bruce Jenner’s Westwood Centers for Nautilus and Aerobics as well as of the Bruce Jenner Aviation company.
The Aviation company sells aircraft supplies and both companies only bring more money to the bank for this successful former athlete.

Caitlyn Jenner Interesting Facts
Even though her win at the Olympic Games is something she became famous for, we best know Cait from her appearance on the Keeping Up with the Kardashians reality TV show. Cait (once Bruce) married Kris Kardashian and got involved into filming a reality TV show that was based on filming everyday lives of the members of the Kardashian family.
Caitlyn was on the show from the beginning and we were able to watch on our screens how her life changed completely. After coming out in 2014, Caitlyn started filming her own reality TV show, based on her everyday life.
Even though the audience loved watching the Kardashian family, Cait’s show, called I am Cait, didn’t receive the same feedback. The show got cancelled but never the less, Cait earns a fair amount of money from her companies and public performances.
She often holds speeches in events and for her appearance she requests large numbers. One source even said that Caitlyn requested a 100$ thousand for one speech. Her net worth currently is 100$ million, but in the years to come we can expect her net worth to rise even more.
