Out of all the Kardashians, I find myself irritated the most with Rob Kardashian, who truly (more than the rest of them) seems to do nothing to earn his keep. Don’t even tell me that “sock designer” qualifies as a true occupation either. All I really know for sure is that Rob spends most of his life doing vapid things and uses Twitter for evil; although he does have a noted habit of deleting most of his tweets, he famously used the social media platform to attack ex-girlfriend Rita Ora a few months ago. Interestingly enough, Rita just gave an interview in which she plays the “shoot, shag, or marry” game, and “I would marry Robert De Niro, I would shag Robert Pattinson and I would definitely, definitely, shoot Rob Kardashian.” So there’s no love lost there on either end.
For whatever reason, Us Weekly chose to profile Rob in their “25 things” feature. This guy couldn’t be more self-absorbed, and I find it interesting that everything he says refers to the aesthetic, and he seems to have no concept of a world outside his little bubble. Even when he’s given the chance to say he’d like to step into the life of someone else for a day, he doesn’t choose someone like Ghandi; he just wants to be a guy from Arcade Fire. Well, at least he’s honest, right?

[From Us Weekly]
Oh Rob. So many contradictions, starting with the admission about not working out for over two years to expressing enthusiasm for running an “easy” 10 miles. That’s a nice self-comparison to Steve Prefontaine, btw. Douche.
That bit about the lemonade and tonsilitis is really weird. While it’s true that an excess of acidic beverages can irritate the throat, I have to wonder if “lemonade” is some sort of drug slang in Rob’s case. All along, there have been buzzings (verifiable or not) that drug parties are not off limits for him. Somehow, he graduated from college, but I suspect that he coasted through on his father’s name.

Blech! This Eddie Munster looking motherf-ker
Never seen him before but he’s one unfortunate looking dude.
Gandhi–and you spelled it, how? SHAME! Worse: DUMB. Did you think it was a movie? Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, an Indian lawyer and activist who was a leader of the nation’s non-violent, non-cooperative independence movement against the United Kingdom’s rule of the country during the 20th century.
FYI – Gandhi is also a movie , which tells the life of MK Gandhi. It was directed by Sir Richard Attenborough, and released in 1982.
Let me complete his list:
26: I do not understand the word “employment”
27: I take up valuable space in the universe for no good reason
28: My sister is famous for a sex tape but I have the nerve to judge other women for their sexual choices
29:I am a douchenozzle, like duh!
30:I “design” socks, see me revolutionise the world of socks!
I can’t stop laughing. I didn’t finish reading his list but yours is way better. He is so gross and useless. He’s not even attractive, absolutely no redeeming qualities.
No he was really good on Dancing With The Stars. He improved each week. I never voted for him though
I wonder if he sits there with a piece of paper with a sock drawn on and he just draws polka dots on crayon on them. “HERE! I DESIGNED THIS!”
Haha, look mom its a glove for your foot!
LMFAO!!! thats awesome!
Ha! This was great.
Ha ha ha – those were great.
LMAO! Bad Irene, I love you.
He reorganizes his closet every week? This fool needs to get a damn job. What a loser.
Half this shit just tells you that he has way too much time on his hands.
hang on lol i believe there is/was a “professional organiser” chick on the current bachelor :S
that could be a profession for him? lol
His closet of sweatshirts and droopy sweatpants? When he bullied his mother into getting him a meeting for a clothing collection, he didn’t even shave for the meeting with the designers/manufacturers.
Dude is a lazy, depressed loser. I would be too if I was trying to live off the avails of my sisters’ porn & tabloid-derived notoriety.
Eh, I really didn’t find this as awful as it’s being read into. Most of those 25 things are vapid and obnoxious anyway. I don’t like the Kardashian’s but honestly I don’t think he really did anything to deserve this much annoyance. I rarely hear anything about the guy. At least he’s not selling sex tapes.
No..he just lives off the money and fame from the family empire that was caused and boosted by a s*x tape. That’s all.
Isn’t that what the whole family is doing?
It appears to me that he’s been babied, as he was the youngest of the Kardaahians, and the only boy, but basically got no help deciding on any direction or preparation for life. Mom was way too busy with the “girls”, etc. He appears ro have no self-confidence or motivation. i.e., who gave him the idea of designing socks? and what self-respecting guy would agree to that!!!! I think they ignore him pretty much.
Maybe should go to chef school. He seems to like that stuff. He would be interacting with others and learning something he could turn into an occupation, and maybe sever ties with the fam and feel some self-worth and pride. Or join the Army?
Why doesn’t his name start with a “K”? I don’t understand.
His real name is Kobert, or “Kob.” Worst kept secret.
Ha! Good one 😀
I just guffawed at this in line at the drugstore.
Because he’s a boy and therefore needs a “real” name and not a gimmick.
I LOVE GOLD!!!!!!!!!! Thats all I could think when i read No. 17.
I don’t know much about him except form little tidbits here and there on the internet. BUT the other night there was chick on the Millionaire Matchmaker who described him as her ideal guy, seriously.
You shee, Mr. Powers…
20. My favorite outdoor activity is what runner Steve Prefontaine called an “easy 10″: a basic 10-mile run.
Well, crap. I have something in common with Rob Kardashian.
It sounds like you had something in common with Rob Kardashian a decade ago. If dude’s not working out, I bet he won’t find that “easy 10” quite as easy anymore.
Oh please, this fool doesn’t workout. He looks lazy and out of shape.
It probably takes him 3 hours to “run” those 10 miles, and by “run” I mean walk.
He wishes he was born a female KarTrashion$$$! I saw some of his sock kollection and what a joke! Loud and garish like his kraptastic family!
Sometimes he gets chubby and it cracks me up. Imagine dating a guy with the guy version of the famous Kim K. Bum???? Yuck!
So. Fucking. Boring.
rumor here at usc is that he never ACTUALLY graduated… he never got enough units to get a diploma!
maybe that’s why his sisters have so little respect for him or why the usc law school was so quick to deny that he was going here
Not surprising…he used to speak openly with Khloe and Kourtney on the show about considering dropping out of USC. Guess that happened and they never admitted it after the fact.
Well all the KrapTrashians are world klass liars so this is of NO surprise to me that he didn’t graduate.
He really illustrates why it’s been called “University of Spoiled Children.”
So basic. Why exactly does anyone care what this sad, manchild thinks? Is he popular among the Kardashian fans?
When is he ever going to get a j-o-b, his own house and life? Total loser. In a family of other total losers. Making lots of money doesn’t compensate for all their other faults.
From reading that list, looks like he and Chris Brown are practically the same person. No wonder Rhianna had a fling with this guy…ew.
I love the shag game, I’m going to play with my friends but all the celebs have to have the same first name.
I would shag Chris Hemsworth
I would marry Chris Evans
I would shoot Chris Brown
I would shag Robert Deniro
I would marry Robert Downey Jr.
I would shoot Robert Patterson
Yeah a great game to play with my drinking buddies. Thanks
i don’t blame him for being such a ‘tard. He was raised by all these superficial, vapid women.
If you were Rob, what would you do with your life?
What about his dad? These women are atrocious, yes, but don’t forget that its not only women but also fathers who influence their children.
Win Butler is pretty awesome.
No lies detected.
Ugh… He looks, acts, and thinks like my boyfriend’s brother.
As a former runner, I am calling him out about his “easy10-mile run”, and he has never won any state cross counntry championships, let alone “several”! What a freakin liar, he shouldnt even b allowed to say the name Prefontaine, what a loser.. I wish I could call him up and go for a run with him right now! That would b worth a good laugh, but hed probably be too far behind to see…
Ha, that’s what I thought too. Aren’t the state championships the final race of the season, meaning a total of four times during your high school career. Yeah, I’m not buying that one either.
State Champions in the state of CA would get free rides to big running schools, easily. He’s seriously SUCH A LIAR.
This site is great distraction. It is supposed to be judgy by nature… it’s a gossip blog. The writers are hilariously snarky but never in a malicious way. You can poke fun of people’s antics without being cruel and heartless. Some commenters though: holy sh*t! You’d better hope people don’t judge you to way you judge others. So, so incredibly nasty. I really hope celebrities don’t read about themselves and take people’s horrible comments to heart. Faith in humanity goes way down when I do…
He forgot 2!
26. I’m a freeloaded
27. I live with my sister Khloe and her husband Lamar because I can’t afford to live on my own
That’s what I thought when I read about his cleaning all his phones – Khloe seems like the type to do that weekly, so of course, all the phones in “his house” are cleaned regularly.
It’s like Rob Krapdashian and Joe Manganiello are having a douche-off for the most shallow answers to these questions. I can’t decide which one is more self-absorbed.
LOL I totally forgot about Joe’s 25. His was very self absorbed but to be fair, at least he works. Sure they’re all naked jobs, but its still work. Honestly I feel so bad for Rob Sr. He was a smart man and a hard worker,and for what it seemed, a decent, loving father Then to have your kids turn out like this…. (throws hand up)
True, like I posted in reply to Sassy, he has a much better work ethic.
Side note: so far, the best 25 Things I’ve ever read is Ryan Kwanten’s.
Hey! Lay off Manganiello. He is from my home town, and is a classically trained film and theater graduate of Carnegie Mellon U with a BFA. He and Rob are not even close in accomplishments and brain power. BTW, the face that Joe shows in public is one he is portraying as an actor.
Sassy, Joe is certainly more accomplished and has a much better work ethic. But he is also vain and self-absorbed, and that comes through loud and clear in his 25 Things. If that is jst an act for the public, it’s beyond me why he’dcwant to e thought of that way.
I think of all the kardashian kids, he could have benefited the most from a relationship with his father. I think Rob jr. would be much different if his father were still around. He always seems lost and in need of guidance that Bruce never gave him and that Kris is incapable of giving. all his older sisters do is make fun of him.
Agree. He is emasculated by those women and he is perhaps ‘lost’, and btw, none of his sisters have any talent, they have their fame of a sex tape so they should not get too judgy with him. It is high time Rob grows a spine, go to school and get a real job and respect will follow…
Thats true…I remember when he started on Dancing with the Stars and at first he looked like he did not want to be there…but then he started to improve and you could see him start getting confidence and feeling like “I can do this”…I thought I was totally going to hate him on that show and I ended up rooting for him…maybe if he had a parent that had encouraged him to be more than “a Kardashian” he would have done something with his life…
I think Kris nixed any guidance Bruce tried to give Rob. She wants to control the actions of everyone in the house.
So that’s what Kim would look like without all of the surgery.
Right on the money!
Some of the comments here are too harsh. Rob may be annoying but he doesn’t deserve the ill-will. His mom can’t famewhore him out like his sisters cause he’s a boy. Rob should perhaps go to law school and follow in his dad’s footsteps.
I’ve seen a few episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians (hangs head in shame) and I have also been through law school. I got the degree and everything.
Trust me, he would not last one semester at law school.
Of course he wouldn’t last in school. He doesn’t have the drive to go to law school. He’s rich! He will be provided for for the rest of his life.
I totally thought the sock thing was a joke. Like when my old college roommate used to try to pick up girls by telling them he was a biscuit designer.
Biscuit, the food?
Yes. I think that being the other type would have made him God.
Some people seriously slack when it comes to raising their ‘boys’- they will never be proper men or anythign near it. What a total shame- I’d put a bag over my head if I were his mother. His sisters arent any better, but at least they dress before going out and do something like working.
It’s kind of hilarious that he actually named his favorite sister.
I thought that was incredibly strange as well. I’ve never seen the show so I don’t know about how the others treat him but all the same that was quite the ending blow.
Seriously. two words.
That says it all. Talent-less douchenozzle.
His favorite number is 34 but its not a roulette number? Also, eat a bag o dicks, rob.
I love that his lucky numbers don’t include his lucky craps’ number. What a douchnozzle. Anything actually connecting in that dumb head up there to the rest of the world?
Disregard the craps thing. I read it wrong. Still a douchnozzle.
I don’t know why he ever went on twitter to slut shame Rita Ora. She has a great voice, better than most pop stars, and now people just think she’s a whore.
poor Rita Whora
I don’t understand the marrying Robert DeNiro thing. He’s not that hot to me, and I sure wouldn’t someone staring at me while having sex.
I got suckered into clicking on a kardashian post since I love 25 things list.
And of course, the word literally was used. Big surprise.
He is the most useless person in this family. The fact that he lives with Klhoe and Lamar while he can afford to move out and does nothing but get laid and eat is embarrassing. I mean at least his sisters are having babies and selling clothes and there are girls out there who look up to them for whatever reason but he is epically usless!
I get it that being on TV is your job and obviously he’s not going to get an office job if he makes more on E! but why isn’t he starting a legitimate business with that money or does something that makes him happy? If I were this rich I’d devote my life to doing things that I was passionate about because I wouldn’t have to get a boring job. Most people have to give up on their dreams for this reason. But the fact that not even a hobby or an activity fullfills him makes him seem super empty to me. You’re in your mid twenties, you should know what you like or what you want to be by now.
At least Scott can be funny.
whoa. this is harsh. what’s wrong with a sock line? I think it’s a good move. EVERYONE wears socks, male and female, young and old. the difference is Kris doesn’t pimp him out the same and he doesn’t have the marketing savvy to propel it himself. otherwise, it would make him quite wealthy.
I actually thought the sock line was interesting. I mean guy do wear socks, and some men are fashionable with them. They go beyond the basic black, white, brown. I like seeing men in stylish shocks. Like women with shoes.
Rob only bothers me because he has absolutely NO SELF CONFIDENCE. And Bruce is hardly the person to help him get it. Bruce is fine outside the family, but Kris runs the show and Bruce from what I see is a Set Decoration. All the men are. Rob should have moved away and got a back bone and grew up.
I think it is too late now. Unless he finds a strong woman that will help motivate him. But that too seem not a real possibility.
Okay, I ALSO sanitize my phones (and remotes, etc) regularly, but that is the only thing we have in common, LOL.
This reads like an Onion article. Sock line! Neon sneakers! “Bible”! This is too good.
I got to #9 and started looking for the cameras. I thought I was being Punk’d. Lemonade, or …LEMONADE?
Rob has worked out in the past two years. The problem is he never keeps it up to become a routine so he is always starting over with new hope.
I used to think “designing leggings” was the funniest job I’d ever heard of, but designing socks is much better.
How old are you??? …..2. I sleep with my baby blanket, Kiki, that my nana made for me.
….lists High School great achievments because he hasn’t done anything noteworthy in his life since HS…… I won state cross-country competitions several times during high school.
When I used to watch their show THIS was one of the most ANNOYING sayings, “I swear like, like, my butt is like for real guys, like, like I never had like plastic surgery, like.” her sister’s response……. I say “Bible” instead of saying “I swear.”
The smartest thing he’s ever said, Kylie is the least annoying cuz she isn’t a fame whore…25. My favorite sister is my youngest one, Kylie.
As a mother of a seventeen year old son I really feel very sad for him. The hatred on here for him is WAAAAY too harsh ladies. His father passed way too early and his “mother” has not only ignored him totally any attention he has gotten is beyond harsh. This kid has ZERO confidence and ZERO guidence.
His “mother” should be ashamed of herself. This young man is a huge mess and regarding his sock business….Im impressed he stuck with SOMETHING despite all of the negative comments his mother and sisters threw at him.
I am really holding my breath that he wont get hooked on drugs. When I see him, and his plethora of tatoos( screams self loathing) I really wish Rober Kardashian HADNT passed.
Your compassion is admirable, but this guy is not 17, he’s about to turn 26. At some point, while you still get to blame your parents for your problems, you have to start building something by yourself through, you know, actual work beyond mooching.
The phrase “failure to launch” comes to mind.
Love Arcade Fire. Slightly annoyed now that the next time I listen to Haiti or headlights look like diamonds, this little turd may pop into my thoughts. I’d been better off not reading his 25.
Ah, yes! THAT would be the nose all those Kardashian girls started with, pre-rhinoplasty.
Dumbest thing this site has posted in my time as a viewer. Blame this on the new blogger???
Wait, there’s a new blogger? Where have I been….
I feel kind of bad for Rob (I know I’m a schmuck probably) but his sisters are loaded and have no actual talent yet attack him for not having a job. Lol what the heck? The only reason they are famous is because Kim made a sex tape.
he claims to have won state competitions in cross country in high school?
who was his competition- quadriplegics?
4. “I get a shave every week.”
HAHA wtf!? That’s like saying “I breathe air through my nostrils” or “I take a sh*t every morning.” If something that lame/obvious makes it into your “25 Things About Me” list, you need to seriously re-evaluate your life.
I think you’re cute Rob…
What qualification did he graduate with?
Omg! Is it just me or does he look EXACTLY like his mom, in that picture where he’s wearing that goofy shiny suit? He’s like a ditto male version of Kris Kardashian!
Judging by his chubby face, I doubt there would be anything “easy” about a ten mile run for this guy. Nice try, though.
Rob sounds like an absolute idiot. Does anyone in this family have any brains or interest in anything at all apart from themselves?
Is there any hope at all for the younger sisters?
Please tell me he’s not really a sock designer??!!
wow, some harsh comments on here. I feel sorry for him. I think with all those loud-mouth females around, he kinda got ignored and never developed his own confidence.
Mmmm hmmmm…be careful dating a dude who is the youngest and/or the only boy of the family. Not all, but certainly quite a few that I have known fall into that category where their birth order and over accomodating mothers have ruined them and made them bitch boys with a sense of entitlement…
If he was a girl, he’d be rich like the rest of his sisters, living it up, dating super rich athletes, and he’d be getting plenty of attention from his mom…all while literally doing no actual work. But he was born a boy, he is of little value to his mom (money-wise)…he is the most educated one in that family yet makes the least money…not fair…but I do think Rob is a little douchey…but we have to remember Kris Jenner is the executive producer of the their show, she edits footage to make Rob look worse than he is.
If their father was still alive I think he would have disowned the girls and taken Rob away from the Queen bitch. Rob never had a chance. Can you imagine what it was like for him to have listened to all the comments made about his whore sisters? Would not be to surprised if he actually hated women because of the sick ones he has had to live with. I wonder if his mother had to write left and right on the inside of his socks? So that made him want to make his own when he grew up. Then he could design socks with L and R already in them!
“16 tattoos…and counting”
Sounds like momma taught him how to angle for his own TLC show. Sadly, at the rate TLC is going, I expect to see it next season.
