It wasn’t quite love at first sight – or rather, first glance – for Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson.
Thursday’s episode of The Kardashians followed Kim, 42, and her famous family as they prepared to attend the 2022 Met Gala together.
The event was extra special for Kim as it was the first time her whole family would be attending the prestigious gala – but also one of her first red carpet appearances with her boyfriend Pete at the time.
While she was excited to stand by his side on the Met Gala’s iconic staircase, Pete, 29, revealed it wasn’t the first time he and Kim had crossed paths at the event.
“Remember when I asked for your number at the last Met and you pretended not to give it to me because you were wearing gloves?” Pete joked with Kim before the event.
Kim seemed embarrassed by the snub. “I know, you will ask me again?” she asked.
Despite the initial rejection, Pete had a positive attitude about the exchange. “It was the nicest excuse,” he said. “I remember being in the car, being like, ‘Wow! She knows how to make someone feel really good about themselves.’

Later, as the couple made their way to the Gala, Kim and Pete reflected on their busy weeks – which, at the time, also included attending the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, DC (as a mark April event also their weeks. red carpet debut as a couple.)
In the car, the now blonde Kim said, “I wanted our first red carpet, for me, to be with brown hair. I wanted it to be a non-fashionable event.”
Staying true to his comedic chops, Pete said, “Yeah, I wanted us to go down at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, but you know, for his own sake.”
After arriving at the Gala and standing together on the carpet in their respective outfits – Kim in her iconic Marilyn Monroe dress and Pete in a suit – the two celebrated the successful end of the evening with Kim’s family, some pizza and lots of sweets.
But for Kim and Pete, the end of the evening also included some personal time. As Kim prepared to get out of her second dress, she asked Pete, “Babe, do you want to take a quick shower with me?”
Pete, who was dating Khloé Kardashian at the time, was left speechless by the offer – simply responding by dropping his phone to the ground and running towards Kim in the bathroom.
The team members then laughed at his reaction, while Khloé, 38, stood alone and looked confused. “What exactly happened?” she asked for cameras.

“Pete has the best heart,” Kim said during a confession in the episode. “I feel like people, they have this idea, like, of him that he dates all these hot girls. And he does. But he’s just the sweetest, most thoughtful person.”
In another candid chat, Kim opened up to Khloé about her natural trust in Pete. “You asked me something once. You said, ‘How do you trust Pete?'” Kim said. “And I’m like, ‘I’ll just do it. Like, it’s a feeling.'”
