He is best known for appearing on reality television shows that center upon his family, such as Keeping Up with the Kardashians and Khloé & Lamar.

Robert Arthur "Rob" Kardashian was born March 17, 1987 in Los Angeles, California, United States to attorney Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner. He has three older sisters, Kourtney, Kim, and Khloé. His parents divorced, and his mother married Bruce Jenner in 1991. Through this marriage, he has two younger half-sisters, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. His father died in September 2003 from esophageal cancer.

Kardashian announced in August 2012 that he will return to the University of Southern California and study law later in the year. USC's Gould School of Law, however, denied this, and stated via its Twitter account that Kardashian had not even applied to the school.

In 2012, Kardashian participated in Fox's now-cancelled dating game show The Choice.

In late 2012, he launched his sock line titled Arthur George.
