13. Kourtney Is a Sailor
KAKTTH Season 1, Episode 6
Over the course of 15 seasons, Kourtney has established her position as the family member who dabbles in a hobby briefly then declares herself to be an expert at it. It's highly irritating to meet someone like this in reality, but it makes for great reality TV.
While on a beach day out in the Hamptons, Scott notes how perfect the weather is for sailing. "I think I have my sailing license," Kourtney muses. Khloé is doubtful, but Kourtney continues: "I am a sick sailor, guys. When I went to camp in the Adirondack Mountains, I learned how to sail. . .I didn't just take one class, I was at camp for one or two months." Scott recognizes her delusion in an instant: "She legitimately thinks she's a captain."
Khloé offers a counterpoint: "I went to art class after school and, trust me, I would never say I was an artiste." But Kourtney is undeterred. "I am a pottery master also," she replies. "If you asked me to install a Nintendo system I could do it in a second."
Eager to see his partner and the mother of his children fail, Scott brings a sailboat called Little Big Fun to test Kourtney's skills. Despite the boat almost capsizing and filling with water the second the takes control, Kourtney still insists she has a handle on it.
It's not until Scott is thrown overboard that she concedes defeat. "All right, I admit I'm not as good as I thought I was," she says. "You don't need to be little bitches about it."
