From there, Jenner talked about how unusual it was that the job came together the way it did.
“It’s just a dream,” she said. “I mean, they said you could start Monday, and we could have that call on Friday. No one ever has that happen to them.
Kris gave more information about her role in Thompson’s job at ESPN in a tribute video. She said that she went straight to the Powers That Be to say nice things about the job.
She said, “I was able to reach out to ABC/Disney and really tell them how talented I thought Tristan was and how they would really benefit from something like having him on the ESPN team.”
Thompson was seen praising Jenner for having “mastered” what he called “the art of negotiating.” This is the kind of smooth documentary video that the show is known for. Jenner said that putting things together like this is “so rewarding,” especially when it’s as “easy” as this setup was. She didn’t agree or disagree with Thompson’s opinion.
