While she may have been born with a silver spoon, Kendall Jenner is as real as they come, at least when it comes to having morbid and inexplicable fears of things. And yeah, sure, we are all scared of something or the other, but mostly, when we list out our fears, pancakes don’t feature at the top. In fact, for most of us, pancakes do not feature in a scary list, unless you hate cooking that is. So why does Kendall Jenner find pancakes scary?
Actually being inexplicably afraid of something is not an uncommon thing, and many celebrities seem to have their own little morbidities when it comes to everyday things. Robert Pattinson may play big, bad vampire but is scared of horses, which is a fairly valid fear if you have been thrown off one. On the other hand, Black Widow Scarlett Johansson is terrified of birds, while for Tyra Banks, dolphins can send her into a screaming frenzy. So fearing pancakes seems right up the celebrity alley.
No, not the diamond-encrusted ones or the tattoos she and her baby daddy Travis Scott once got. Kylie Jenner is scared of butterflies, and the reason is simple. Take the wings off and butterflies are nothing but insects and that is is not pretty, according to Jenner, that is. On her show, ‘Life of Kylie’, she said, “I’m terrified of butterflies. All butterflies … This is how I think of them: Cut the wings off, and if you just look at their bodies, they’re not that pretty. It’s literally a bug.”
The fear of butterflies is real, and even Nicole Kidman has it. The phobia is actually called lepidopterophobia. Meanwhile, whilst Kendall Jenner has no problem with bugs, flying or otherwise, pancakes give her cold sweats, so breakfast and brunches may be a bit of a problem for her. Of course, this is the Kardashian-Jenner clan, and oddities are part and parcel of everything, especially if it can earn them better TRPs and make their bank balances soar even higher!
Kendall Jenner does not actually fear pancakes, what she fears is the holes in them. which means anything with multiple holes, in irregular patterns, can set her off. Jenner admitted this on her blog once and wrote, “Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia. Trypophobics are afraid of tiny little holes that are in weird patterns. Things that could set me off are pancakes, honeycomb or lotus heads (the worst!). It sounds ridiculous but so many people actually have it! I can’t even look at little holes – it gives me the worst anxiety. Who knows what’s in there???”
