All the members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan have always seemed so bold and fearless (or shameless—potato, potahto), but it turns out that Kendall Jenner is seriously scared of a common breakfast food. In a blog posted to her subscription-only site yesterday, Jenner revealed she has a deep-seated fear of pancakes—and other things that have small holes in them.
"Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia," she writes. "Typophobics are afraid of tiny holds 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?"

Jenner isn't the only celebrity who suffers from trypophobia—an intense fear and revulsion against collections of small holes that's not officially recognized as a phobia by psychiatric associations—and pancakes aren't the only food that triggers trypophobics. Cantaloupes, crumpets, and watermelon can also set off panic and visceral physical reactions.
