Kendall Jenner and little sis Kylie Jenner made Time magazine's list of 'Most Influential Teens.' Some people don't believe the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars deserve a spot on the list. What do you think?

Amidst the naysayers, however, is supporter Wendy Williams. The talk show host points out why Kylie and Kendall Jenner made the list.

"They are influential to teens!" Williams said on her talk show last week. "Either teen girls want to look like them…or dress like them."

"They follow them on Instagram. They should be on this list, that's all!" she added.

Kylie and Kendall Jenner were beyond thrilled--and quite honored--when they learned they landed a spot on Times 'Most Influential Teens' list.

"We are so honored to be included on the Time magazine list of ‘Most Influential Teens,'" Kendall and Kylie Jenner said during an interview with E! ."There are incredible teens on this list and we are so proud to be in their company."

Time said of the two girls, "Together, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians co-stars hosted red-carpet events, released clothing and nail polish lines and even published a dystopian young-adult novel this past summer (though yes, they had some help). But they’ve had solo success too—Kendall with modeling (she’s walked the runway for designers like Marc Jacobs) and Kylie with pseudo-entrepreneurship (she’s launching a line of hair extensions and hopes to get into acting)."

No, Kylie and Kendall Jenner didn't earn a Nobel Peace Prize, like Malala Yousafzai, who is the youngest to ever have won one. She won for her activism for women's education. Others making the list include New Zealand singer Lorde, Little League baseball star Mo'ne Davis, Malia Obama, Jaden Smith, and Austin Mahone.

Oh, come on--if Austin Mahone and Jaden Smith made this list, how can anyone question the validity of Kylie and Kendall Jenner making it, too?
