Former Olympian Caitlyn Jenner may be more interested in being the star of a new reality show than the next governor of California.
Jenner has hired a film crew to document her run in the state’s upcoming recall election and is funding the project herself.
A campaign spokesperson says that Jenner hasn’t decided whether she’ll use the footage in a new reality show.
While Jenner’s non-denial might seem like a tacit admission that she’s more interested in ratings than responsibility, her campaign has been anything but predictable.
Jenner, who is best known as an Olympic gold medalist and a reality television star, announced earlier this year that she is running to be governor of California in a recall election to unseat Gov. Gavin Newsom (D). She has no experience in politics, and her campaign has been a series of gaffes.
She told Sean Hannity that the reason she’s running is that a man with an airplane hangar near hers in Malibu was tired of seeing homeless people in California and was moving to Arizona.
“My hangar… the guy right across, he was packing up his hangar and I said, ‘Where are you going?’ And he says, ‘I’m moving to Sedona, Arizona, I can’t take it anymore. I can’t walk down the streets and see the homeless,’” she said.
Jenner was later caught lying when she said she didn’t vote in the 2020 elections because she was too busy golfing. She actually did vote in that election, according to Los Angeles County records.
Her campaign has left analysts wondering who exactly is her constituency is as a wealthy, conservative transgender woman in a year when Republicans started a war on transgender people’s rights, making it one of the central issues that has defined the GOP this year.
Now it looks more likely that her “constituency” isn’t as important as celebrity.
