Well done: After two weeks of silence the supermodel threw her support behind Caitlyn in an Instagram post, shared with followers on Wednesday evening
Referencing circulating claims of an ongoing family silence regarding her participation on the show, Kendall added: ‘Just cuz I’m not posting doesn’t mean I’m not supporting. I love my dad! Everyone chill.’
The post came after Caitlyn has become the new camp leader on Wednesday evening’s episode of the endurance based reality show.
The 70-year-old reality star was voted by viewers to take over from former rugby star James Haskell as the leader of the camp during Wednesday’s episode, with Coronation Street star Andy Whyment named deputy.
Sitting in the special red throne reserved for camp leader, Caitlyn said: ‘I really feel good up here, I really feel a sense of power.’

The star’s first task was to team up with Andy to give each celebrity a new role within the camp, shaking up the previously allocated roles which had been decided by James and his deputy Jacqueline Jossa.
Caitlyn and Andy allocated cooking chores to Ian Wright and Kate Garraway, cleaning to Roman Kemp and Nadine Coyle, washing up to Myles Stephenson and Jacqueline, water duty to James and Adele Roberts, and camp gas to Cliff Parisi and Andrew Maxwell.
Viewers had previously accused James of letting the power go to his head during Tuesday’s episode of the show, with some branding him ‘arrogant and bossy.’
But he took his demotion with good grace as Caitlyn settled into her new role on Wednesday’s show.

Speaking about the new jobs, Roman said in the Bush Telegraph: ‘Kate and Ian bicker at the best of times, I can’t wait to see them arguing over who is going to fillet the fish and chop the veg.’
Olympic athlete Caitlyn later joined in to a conversation Roman and Myles were having with Kate as they spoke about whether or not they ever peed in the shower.
Roman brought up the subject and asked Myles if he ever did, to which the Rak-Su singer said: ‘Hell yeah’.
Andy chimed in and said: ‘I wee in the shower.’

Horrified, Kate said: ‘No. You can’t wee in the shower.,’ before she added in the Bush Telegraph: ‘m shocked. Some of these guys do it regularly, it’s a sport for them.’
Roman said: ‘Guys make a game out of it. You aim at the hole. If you got a perfect aim, you can have a perfect score.’
When asked, Caitlyn then said: ‘Put it this way, it’s not as much fun as it used to be.’
