Kardashian: True or False?
Test your knowledge of Kim, Kourt and Khloe!
Bruce Jenner sure has lived quite the life.  Back in the ’70s, he was one of the most successful and hard-working athletes on the planet, becoming a national hero after winning gold at the 1976 Olympics for the decathlon. Cut to 35 years later, and he’s not only still a sought-after inspirational speaker, but also the father figure for one of America’s most well-known families: The Kardashian clan.

Bruce’s fame through the years is a fun one to take a look at, from back in his ripped athlete prime all the way to now, where he proudly walked stepdaughter Kim Kardashian down the aisle for her wedding this summer. With three more opportunities to be the father-of-the-bride (for Kourtney Kardashian, as well as Kendall and Kylie Jenner) as well as the potential wedding of son Brody Jenner, Bruce has a lot to look forward to in the coming years.
