Rich Kids of Instagram Inspires a Reality TV Show

One of my favorite Tumblrs has inspired a reality show.  The Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr follows the hijinks of well… rich kids who post “their” wealthy lifestyle on Instagram. These kids are what us average joe folks call spoiled. These kids are driving Bentleys, jetting around the world in private planes and only wearing the best.  If you have that kind of (daddy’s) money, not to mention too much time – what better way to exploit it than to Instagram it!

For those of you who are curious about these rich kids of Instagram, here is a sampling.  

  • Just Because 1 of 17

    Labeled.. just because. Just because you don't have it and he does..

  • Oh Just Me and My Pet Lion 3 of 17

    Doesn't everyone have a red sports car that their pet lion stands on top of? I think I am more impressed with the playground equipment in the background.

  • Gold Plated Calculator 4 of 17

     My dad got me gold-plated, diamond encrusted calculator from Burma #notevenjoking #bling

    My first car was a 1991 Toyota Tercel. My parents paid $1700 for it. #RKOI, first is a Mercedes.

    I'm guessing that Warhol isn't a replica.

  • Airbus 10 of 17

    Just chillin' in his airbus. What kills me? He tags it #rkoi. Maybe i'll start tagging my stuff #apoi (average people of instagram).

  • AMEX 11 of 17

    My heart pauses every time I see my mortgage balance. I am pretty sure if my AMEX bill came in displaying an outstanding balance of $509,103 - I'd die.

    Jumping off a yacht is fun. Jumping off a helicopter? epic.

  • Trust Fund Baby 17 of 17

    This is this kid's weekly trust fund check.  According to his Instagram, he gives half to charity. (kudos, good to see people doing good)

    image source: RKOI via instagram announced that a few of the kids featured on the Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr will be joining a new series that E! has in development. The show will revolve around a group of 20-somethings that live in a world of extreme wealth and will be called Rich Kids of Beverly Hills. Rich Kids of Instagram Tumblr is not involved in the project. 

Yet another reality TV show (but this one is unscripted! *eye roll*) featuring rich people from Beverly Hills.
