Bruce Jenner might be best known on this side of the pond as Kris Jenner's ex-husband and the stepfather of the Kardashian clan, but in his native America, he was a bona fide national hero thanks to his sporting achievements. After being forced to quit a college football scholarship because of injury, he switched to decathlon. At the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada, he won the gold medal in the decathlon event, setting a new world record. As a result, he was inducted into the Olympic Hall of Fame in 1986. After retiring from athletics, Bruce decided to pursue a television career and had some success with made-for-TV movies and as a semi-regular cast member on the police series 'CHiPs' for six episodes. He has since appeared in several US reality shows including 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!' and 'The Apprentice'. He also starred in episodes of 'Murder, She Wrote' and 'Family Guy'. Since late 2007, he has appeared in the hit E! reality series 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' along with wife Kris Jenner, stepdaughters Kourtney, Kim, Khloé, and stepson Rob (from Kris' marriage to attorney Robert Kardashian), and daughters Kylie and Kendall.
