5 Reasons Bruce Jenner Is More Important to 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' Than You Think

When there are so many loud characters constantly competing for screen time, at first blush it might seem that Keeping Up With the Kardashians patriarch Bruce Jenner is a little boring. Sure the "just Bruce" edit of the Kardashians is a little slow (even if it is fun to think of the whole reality clan as a figment of an aging millionaire's imagination, like a Twilight Zone episode set entirely inside of a reality show.)

Since Jenner is rumored to be leaving the show, KUWTK might be woefully lacking in the dad department next season, though I bet the change would signal increased plotlines for his son Brody, who has the perfect cool-and-collected vibe to act and react in contrast to Lord Disick (who is just pure reality magic)

While you think all you'll be missing is a ton of scenes of Jenner on the golf course, his departure may in fact be a case of "don't know what you got when it's gone."

Here are just a few reasons why Jenner is the necessary glue to keep the Kardashian-Jenner clan together, even when the world is tumbling around them.
