Sometimes you see the Jenner girls and you think, wow, these must be the most accomplished teen girls in the world, what with all of their accomplishments and such as reported by their public relations team. In fact, over the weekend, Kendall Jennerwas at the Barnes & Noble signing her cover edition of RAINE magazine, I'm sure your copy will be in the mailbox shortly.

But, not so fast, there are other teens making waves for themselves, teens such as U.S. Olympic gymnast McKayla Maroney who arrived in Los Angeles for some rehab on her busted up leg from some hard pounding at the London games. Doesn't she deserve some mention in the same circle of achievement as Kendall Jenner?

Let's compare them more closely both at just age sixteen:

McKayla Maroney has an Olympic gold medal and a silver medal; Kendall Jenner has a Range Rover with the platinum nav package.

McKayla speaks to groups of young girls inspiring them to achieve in sports; Kendall inspires millions of tween girls to flash their wares and share their most intimate secrets for reality fame.

McKayla can perform amazing physical feats of acrobatics and contortion; when Kendall turns 18, she will do the same, for private functions.

McKayla works in a sport that demands utter and total perfection for victory; Kendall works in a field that requires not talking so much out loud.

McKayla is certain to receive six-figure endorsement deals from the likes of cereal companies and athletic gear brands; Kendall will someday be paid seven figures to get wasted at a Turkish nightclub.

Winner: Kendall.
