ROB Kardashian has experienced quite the physical and mental transformation since debuting on television screens on Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2007.
Although he’s the lesser-known child in the Kardashian-Jenner clan (aside from half brother Brody Jenner, possibly), he’s notorious for keeping himself out of the spotlight — completely opposing his famous sisters.

He has, however, been open about his fitness and mental health journey. Here’s a look at Rob’s transformation over the years.
INTRODUCTION TO FAME
Rob Kardashian stepped into the spotlight alongside his siblings for the premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2007.
While his appearances would eventually fade over time, it was revealed in a Los Angeles Times interview that he wasn’t expected to have much of a role in the first place.
“Rob was in college at the time, so we weren’t fully sure how involved he would be [with the show],” executive producer Farnaz Farjam shared.
Luckily, Rob’s schedule allowed him to be present for filming and seemed happy to be filming with this family.
Rob’s relationship with Cheetah Girls star Adrienne Bailon was featured in early seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The demise of the relationship also played out on the show, and in 2009, the pair officially split.
Adrienne later explained on an episode of The Real that she was “embarrassed” because she was cheated on.
Rob tried his best to rekindle their romance, but Adrienne was not having it.
In fact, she added that she had to send a letter from a fake boyfriend to get Rob to stop contacting her.

While Rob appeared to have gained some weight during Season 13 of Dancing With The Stars, he was his usual bubbly self — and even took second place in the competition.
