Maxim's Hot 100 list has been revealed. All of the Kardashian and Jenner sisters made the cut except for Kourtney Kardashian.
This exclusion has left us baffled. Why was she the only one who didn't make the cut? The magazine featured Kim Kardashian in their "Power Players" section along with people like Meghan Markle and Amal Clooney. Kim is a power player in the beauty and reality television industries.
Khloe Kardashian, and Kylie and Kendall Jenner, were all featured in the "Bombshells" section. The magazine designed this specific area for those who are models and Instagrammers with a very large following. Maxim allegedly considers anyone with a number of followers larger than a country's population to qualify for the category. Interesting criteria! All three of these ladies have a significant influence on social media but what about Kourtney?
The mother of three is not hurting for fans. Her Instagram account has 64.2 million followers, while her Twitter account has 24.1 million followers. In comparison, on Twitter Khloe has 26.4 million followers, which really does not set her that far apart from her sister.
However, where this is a significant difference between the two sisters' accounts, namely their number of tweets. Khloe has tweeted 56.2 thousand times. Kourtney has only tweeted 12.7 thousand times. Both sisters joined in 2009 so it is not as though the difference was caused by one of them being on Twitter longer than the other. On Instagram, Khloe has more followers by over 10 million but she and Kourtney are much closer in overall post amounts.
It is very interesting that the 39-year-old was left off of Maxim's Hot 100 list. There has been a lot of speculation as to why but the magazine has yet to comment on their reasoning. Although we can see why she was not included in the "Power Players" section like Kim, it is baffling that she did not make it into the "Bombshells" section. Kourt is just as beautiful as her sisters, and has a large social media following to boot! Perhaps the magazine did not think that her Instagram account was as influential as those of the other three. What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
