If you spent the last 10 years of your life in a cave, you would probably think that a Kardashian was a member of an alien race from Star Trek: The Next Generation.
You'd be surprised to find out that it is actually the name of a family of sisters (and a brother) who are in stage three of a five-stage plan to take over the universe.
So actually, your alien assumption wouldn't be that far off.
Whether we like it or not, the Kardashians are everywhere and, whether we like it or not, they are definitely hot.
Here's a compilation of the 50 hottest Kardashian photos on the web.
Kim is always camera-ready, so when she goes out shopping with the girls this is the type of thing that she wears.
She doesn't look too happy, but Kourtney certainly looks hot coming out of the water.
Here is Lamar Odom's wife at a club event somewhere. I figured we had to have one solo shot of her in normal clothes.
Here it is.
Here's a close-up shot of Kim where we can get a very good look at all of the intricate detail on the top of her dress.
Here's a still shot of when Kourtney and Khloe took Miami.
Here's Kourtney looking good out at an event somewhere. She really is quite overshadowed by her sister.
You rarely see Kim go with the curls, but it's definitely working in this photo. There are some other things that are working for her in the picture as well.
This is a different type of shot of Kim. Maybe it's the lighting or the position, but she looks really tan and I almost didn't think it was her.
But it is, and we're grateful for it.
This is an old school shot of Kim in what looks like her backyard. I don't think the phrase "not in my backyard" would ever apply to her.
I have to imagine that about 40 percent of Kim's life is spent laying out next to the pool or at the beach working on her tan.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who imagines that on a regular basis.
Despite the "I have a tummy-ache" pose, Kim looks ridiculously hot in this green swimsuit.
Khloe is the youngest of the three and she is often outshone by her older, more conventionally beautiful sisters.
I chose this picture because it is one of the few in existence where Khloe might actually look better than Kourtney and Kim.
It's rare to see both Kim and Kourtney in bikinis together. Actually, who am I kidding? They're always in bikinis when they're together.
If there's one thing Kim knows how to do, it's pose. Here she is on some sort of photo shoot showing off her body.
Kim's rear end is so nice, even she can't help but stare at it sometimes. We're right there with you, Kim.
This pic gives you a sense of just how much bigger Khloe is than Kim, but it also gives you a look at Khloe's rarely-seen bikini body.
It's actually a lot better than we tend to think.
Sometimes the hottest pictures aren't done in a fancy studio with elaborate costumes.
This looks like a shot that Kim took of herself in bed and it's up there with her hottest photos of all time.
This is klearly one of Khloe's best kostumes ever.
It's a rare occasion when you can look at Khloe and say, "hey, she looks kinda hot." This is one of those times.
Kim gets paid to wear certain clothes and endorse certain products, so I'm sure the makers of these gigantic shiny bags paid top dollar for this shot.
The sad thing is, you probably didn't notice them until you read this.
Kim's had a few different hairstyles, but personally I'm a fan of this straight black look with the bangs.
She's also wearing a hot dress, so that doesn't hurt things either.
Ok so you may look at the face and say, "what is this picture doing on the list?"
Kindly move your eyes towards the bottom of the picture, my friends. I rest my case.
Here are the three sisters all looking hot poolside in Las Vegas. Something tells me this wasn't their first...or last...trip to Vegas.
Kourtney chose to adopt Snooki's hairstyle for this one, but she looks quite a bit better than the Jersey Shore star.
You say tomato, I say tomato. Ok so writing that doesn't really have the same effect as saying it out loud, but you get the idea.
Some people prefer Kim's bikini body from the front, some from the back, but there's no doubt that we enjoy seeing both.
I don't know if Kim was wearing that hat or if she's just carrying it as an accessory, but it definitely adds an element of mystery to the photo.
This is one of those shots where the stylists take three hours getting Kim ready so that she looks like she hasn't gotten ready yet.
I know it's confusing but it works.
Here is Khloe at the Critic's Choice Movie Awards, and I have to say this is the best I've seen her look.
I don't know why she abandoned the red hair, but it's definitely working with the dress in this picture.
Here's Kim looking great in an orange bikini in front of a palm tree. Watch out for coconuts.
Kim walked one of her many red carpets for Famous Cupcakes in this hot gray and black dress. You think she got paid in cupcakes?
There are two things that stand out in this close-up of Kim. I'll let you figure out what they are.
Kim's one of the only women in the world who can look this good doing something as simple as answering the phone.
Joel McHale of The Soup always used to say that Kim was famous "for having a big butt and a sex tape." Well, we're allowed to show you one of those things here.
This is an interesting pose and I'm digging the retro look. I just hope she didn't get attacked by any large jungle cats during the filming of this shoot.
We sometimes forget how hot Kourtney is because she's always pregnant or covered up. Here she is showing off her bikini body.
As I've said, Kim knows how to model, and she does a great job in this picture.
It shows off her curves and she actually looks genuinely happy in the photo, not like she's just there to make some money.
Kourtney can clean up nice as well, proving that Kim's not the only one in the family who knows how to wear a dress.
In the re-vamped version of the Wonder Woman television show, the superhero is being played by Adrianne Palicki.
I don't know if Kim auditioned, but I don't know how you could say no to this outfit.
I'm guessing Kourtney's cold in that leather jacket because she's not wearing a shirt underneath or any pants.
I'm not hearing many complaints from the audience, though.
I think we're all pretty familiar with this shot, but it's always worth another look. She really does a good job with that angry, "hey you're not supposed to be in here" look, which makes her that much hotter.
Here's Kourtney either tying up or taking off her bikini top. I'll leave it up to you to decide.
It's pictures like this that made people think that Kim wore butt-pads underneath her skirts. Those rumors have been denied, which makes this shot all the more impressive.
I guess this is Kim's pirate Halloween costume? There's only one pirate I know that's more awesome than this.
What's better than one Kim? That's right, three Kims. Here is the same outfit from three different angles so that you get a true sense of just how good she looks.
Here's a shot from Kim's artsy W Magazine shoot. Some of them are pretty revealing, so I had to post this one because it's the most tame.
Good luck finding the rest because they've all been removed. Just kidding, here they are.
If this doesn't make you want to go to a water park, I don't know what will.
It looks like she's having almost as much fun as Tom Brady.
Kim may get most of the attention, but Kourtney has also done a few photo shoots. Here she is showing off her body in a black garment of some sort.
Is that a dress?
Yes, I know the tattoo is fake, but there's something about this picture that is extremely hot.
Anybody who figures it out, please let me know.
This is probably my favorite shot of Kourtney. She looks like a '70s disco girl and the look on her face with the strand of hair falling down...masterful.
This is one reason to watch auto racing. I'm not sure how she can press the pedals in those heels, but I don't really care.
I was a very young man when I last watched Aladdin, but I'm pretty sure Princess Jasmine didn't look like this.
Yes, I just moved Aladdin to the top of my Netflix queue. Don't judge me.
