Will the TikTok Household be the New ‘Kardashians’?

Reality TV is where the Kardashian family came to be most famous, but it’s a different media landscape these days. New versions of the Kardashian could potentially be coming from anywhere.

Consider Charli D’Amelio and her family, the D’Amelios, a popular clan who thrilled audiences with their adventures on TikTok. They’ve amassed quite a following, but will they be able to replicate the Kardashians’ success with a new reality show? Let’s take a closer look at how the two families are similar and why the D’Amelios may be the new Kardashians.

The links between the Kardashians and D’Amelio families

When the Kardashian / Jenner family started their run on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, they were a wealthy family who didn’t enjoy the same notoriety as they do today. The D’Amelios, whose most famous members are sisters Charli D’Amelio and Dixie D’Amelio, have a lot in common with the Kardashians, including:

  • The adult children of the family are known to be attractive.
  • The Amelios are quite wealthy and, like the Kardashians, acquired much of their wealth before they became famous.
  • Both are associated with show business.

It’s not difficult to see why anyone would compare these two families. But the D’Amelios are taking the next step to become yet another iteration of the Kardashians by getting their TikTok act on TV.

How the D’Amelio family positions themselves as Kardashians 2.0

The Kardashians were known in LA circles for years before Kim first became famous. Her late father, Robert Kardashian, was a good friend and lawyer of OJ Simpson. Of course, according to its E! Show premiered.

The D’Amelios may initially have gained attention through their appearance on Tik Tok, but now they want to take the Kardashian-like jump into a TV show – so to speak. According to Entertainment Tonight, the D’Amelios have a new show on the Hulu streaming platform called The D’Amelio Show.

The show will cover their lives as a Tik Tok influencer and show the everyday things they do on a given day. It gives their fans the chance to see a new, raw side of the family that may not show up in their carefully choreographed, bite-sized social media videos.

What will the reaction to ‘The D’Amelio Show’ be?

What does the family think of this new venture? In the case of Charli D’Amelio, she believes it will be relevant to a wide audience, including those who are not social media influencers:

“You don’t have to have millions and millions of followers to experience the exact same emotions that we feel … Maybe I see how we dealt with it, or how we lean on the people around us, something that has been going on throughout the show occurs frequently. I am very happy that everyone can see it. ”

A BuzzFeed article reviewed an early episode of the show, describing it as “boring”, noting that the D’Amelios “just look like a normal family that just happens to be famous for TikTok.” The author added, “They aren’t Kardashians, but I don’t think they want to be!”

Ultimately, maybe there will be a big difference between the Kardashians and the D’Amelios. But that shouldn’t be bad for Charli D’Amelio and her family. The Kardashians have already done their thing, so to speak, so anyone who tries to step on familiar territory ends up looking like a warmed-up version of what they did. The D’Amelios have the chance to do something new and different with their show.
