Season 3 of The Kardashians debuted on May 25 on Hulu. The premiere episode set up a lof the season’s main storylines - a newly-single Kim attempting to navigate post-Kanye life. Elsewhere, Kendall and Kylie are bonding, while Khloe deals with a melanoma scare. However, the season has been poorly received by fans already. The detractors lament that the show just doesn’t have the bite of the family’s original offerings.
Furthermore, this is literally referenced in Season 3 Episode 2, which premiered on June 1. At one point, Kim discusses a scathing Variety review about the second season. But we’re not here to discuss the diminishing returns of the popular culture juggernaut’s desire to remain relevant. Instead, we’re here to speculate about Kim’s new man. Episode 2 ends with a preview for Episode 3, which appears to be heavily focused on a new lover for Kim Kardashian.
“The Kardashians” Preview Hints At Kim’s New Lover
“My friends wanted me to meet someone,” Kim tells Scott Disick over dinner during the preview. “Let’s call this guy Fred,” Disick responds, “Does he meet the standards?.” The preview then cuts to Kim texting during her solo confessional. Meanwhile, the audio “Oh, he meets the standards” plays over the footage. Unfortunately, that’s all the information we get about Kim’s potential new man. Therefore, we will have to wait until June 8 to see what else the show reveals about this mystery man.
However, Episode 2 focuses on Kim’s post-Kanye life. This could be setting up an Episode 3 contrast between Kayne and her new mystery man. “I don’t want to be part of this narrative and it’s like when is this ever gonna end? Like it never will and I’m stuck with this for the rest of my life,” Kim tells her mother. Later, Kim says “She [North West] actually doesn’t know, and that’s what makes it so crazy. When stuff is said, it’s a chain to my whole household - “No TV, only Apple TV!.” I can’t risk Access Hollywood coming up next or anything on the news coming up with their dad mentioned and they want to watch. They still haven’t seen anything but I go into crisis mode.” However, as mentioned, fans will have to wait another week to see if “Fred” is anything more than a preview tease.
