19. Scott Is a Race Car Driver
KUWTK Season 8, Episode 5
A member of the Kardashian/Jenner family declaring, for the first time ever, that they're pursuing a "lifelong dream" without question from anyone around them is a recurring theme in their show. This time, it's not Kim's lifelong dream of being in Playboy or Khloé's lifelong dream of riding horses, but Scott's lifelong dream of being a race car driver. "I'm not gonna be the best at first, but I guess I gotta try," he tells Kourtney, who is texting someone about wallpaper choices, before he flies to Monterey to attend a racing school.
Showing up late to a class filled with more experienced drivers triggers Scott's anxiety, and he bails on the lesson before the day is done. The idea of doing something he's dreamed of (even if it's only been for a day or two) turns out to be harder than it seemed. By episode's end, Scott admits his fear of failing – something he thinks people automatically expect he will do – has kept him from even trying. On a hike with Kourtney, he explains his reason for bailing and finds new faith within himself.
Scott: "It's scary, but –"
Scott: " – I gotta open up these wings and I gotta fly."
