It wasn’t quite love at first sight — or rather, first gala — for Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson.
Thursday episode of The Kardashians followed Kim, 42, and her famous family as they prepared to attend the 2022 Met Gala together.
For Kim, the event was extra special as it was the first time her entire family had attended the prestigious gala – as well as one of her first red carpet appearances with then-boyfriend Pete.
While she was thrilled to stand next to him on the iconic Met Gala staircase, Pete, 29, revealed it wasn’t the first time he and Kim 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 had gloves on?” Pete joked with Kim before the event.
Kim seemed ashamed of the stupidity. “I know, will you ask me again?” she asked.
Despite the initial rejection, Pete had a good attitude about the exchange. “It was the best excuse,” he said. “I remember sitting in the car and thinking, ‘Wow! She knows how to make someone feel good about themselves.'”

Later, as the couple made their way to the gala, Kim and Pete reflected on their busy few weeks — which at the time included attending the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C. (the April event marked also their red carpet debut as a couple.)
In the car, a now blonde Kim said, “I really wanted our first red carpet, for me, to be in brown hair. I wanted it to be a non-fashion event.”
True to his comedic chops, Pete joked, “Yeah, I wanted us slimed down at the Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, but you know, to each his own.”
After arriving at the Gala and posing together on the carpet in their respective outfits – Kim in her iconic Marilyn Monroe dress and Pete in a suit – the couple celebrated the successful end of the night with Kim’s family, some pizza and lots of sweet treats .
But for Kim and Pete, the end of the night also included some intimate time. As Kim prepared to take off her second dress, she asked Pete, “Babe, do you want to shower with me real quick?”
Pete, who was chatting with Khloé Kardashian at the time, was left speechless by the offer — he simply responded by dropping his phone on the floor and running to Kim in the bathroom.
The crew members then laughed at his reaction, while 38-year-old Khloé stood alone and confused. “What just happened?” she asked cameras.

Kim and Pete first sparked romance rumors when they kissed during a skit about her SNL hosting debut last October. Later that month, they were photographed holding hands on a roller coaster at Knott’s Berry Farm. Pete formally confirmed his relationship with Kim to PEOPLE in February, calling her his “girlfriend.”
By August, the couple had separated. “Part of the reason they broke up was because of their busy schedules,” an insider told PEOPLE at the time. “They both travel all the time and it was hard.”
Even though the pair have now broken up, Pete has been mentioned several times and featured on season 2 of The Kardashians.
In an earlier episode, Kim talked about why Pete dates “hot girls.” (Before dating Kim, Pete was linked to Ariana Grande, Margaret Qualley, Kate Beckinsale, and Kaia Gerber, among others. Most recently, he’s been linked to supermodel Emily Ratajkowski.)
“Pete has the best heart,” Kim said during a confession in the episode. “I feel like people, they have this idea of him dating all these hot girls. And he does. But he’s just the sweetest, most thoughtful person.”
In another candid conversation, Kim spoke 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 just do it. It’s a feeling.'”

Then, in an episode last month, Kim revealed to her grandmother Mary Jo “MJ” Shannon, mother Kris Jenner, and Khloé that she had sex with Pete in front of a fireplace “in honor” of her grandmother.
“Pete and I stayed at the Beverly Hills Hotel last weekend, and we sat in front of the fireplace talking for hours, and I thought, ‘My grandma told me you’re really alive when you have sex in front of the fireplace.’ ‘, so we had sex in front of the fireplace in your honor,’ she told her grandmother, before adding with a laugh, ‘I know that’s really scary.’
On that same episode, Kris talked about the impact Pete had on Kim. “Pete is great. No drama, no stress, he’s just Pete. [He] suits the family. I think Kim is happy, she’s smiling, she’s more confident, Pete brings out the best in her,” she said.
