Turns out Kendall Jenner's Instagram is more impressive than we thought. Not only is she distilling her life into perfectly-framed, perfectly-lit portraits, she's also been editing this guy out of all of her shots.

We're not sure, and the account's creator isn't letting on: he told The Creators Project Kendall and Kirby are "both super busy with our careers but still find time to hang out with each other," and he's "thinking about starting my own reality show."

Whatever the reason, the retouched photos have garnered Kirby .05 percent of the followers his "sister" has. So that's something.
