Kris Jenner has some loyal fans, who believe that her business savvy should win her Time’s “Person of the Year.” According to a Dec. 13 UPI report, even though Time Magazine recently announced that Pope Francis was its 2013 “Person of the Year,” Jimmy Kimmel decided to have a little fun with his own list of honorees.
The comedian took to the streets to get feedback from strangers on reality stars Kris Jenner and Mama June, among others earning the title for the 2013. Other Kimmel honorees included Toronto’s crack scandal mayor Rob Ford and politician Anthony Weiner.
As the Inquisitr reports, Kardashian matriarch Jenner was one of the most reality television newsworthy stories of 2013. From her new talk show to daughter Kim’s relationship with Kanye West, youngest daughter Khloe and Lamar Odom’s marriage woes, and Jenner’s own separation from her husband Bruce Jenner, it is no surprise that some pedestrians with a lack of current events knowledge fell for Kimmel’s prank.
From Kimmel’s prank video, it is evident that Jenner’s media savvy has gained her fans and admirers. “I think she should get it!,” one woman opined. “She has hustled her way this year. She is a household name, everybody knows her. And she has just been on everything and everywhere. So I think 'Person of the Year' is a good accolade for her.”
One pedestrian praised the reality television star’s business acumen, noting that she deserves the honor because she is a good business woman.
