The Kardashians have headed for the hills—the hills of Montana, that is! On Sunday night’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kim, North, Kourtney, Scott, Mason, Penelope, Reign (side note: AHHH! It was Baby Reign’s first KUWTK appearance!), Khloe, Kylie, Malika, and Jonathan Cheban took a ski trip together. In true Kardashian-Jenner style, their digs for the weekend in Montana were nothing short of spectacular: The siblings and their pals kicked it in a mansion tucked into the side of a mountain. As the family walked into the sprawling rental domicile for the first time, they oohed and aahed at the beautiful cabin/palace.
“I have to give myself props for finding this place so last minute,” Kim said in a talking head.
Don't pat yourself on the back too fast, Kimberly. As impressive a last-minute slam dunk as this cabin/palace was, there was one not-so-small problem: Kim booked a penthouse suite for Cheban at a nearby hotel, and figured Malika could just post up on a couch in Khloe's room.
I repeat: Cheban was assigned a penthouse suite. Malika was assigned a couch.
Before I could be like, "OH, THIS IS GONNA BE GOOD," Khloe and Scott let Kim know they thought this was an unfair move. Kim said she figured Khloe would prefer Malika sleep in her room, but no one was feeling that explanation. Khloe and Scott weren't too happy with Kim, and Malika wasn't too happy with her sleeping situation. Cheban was more or less like, "¯\_(ツ)_/¯."
Uh oh! Looks like we have ourselves a good ol' fashioned vacation sleeping arrangement debacle. I mean, hey, it wouldn't be a vaycay if at least one person wasn't grumbling about their air mattress or worried about the amount of Pepsi their bunkmate chugged that evening. The Kardashian-Jenner empire is rich as all get-out, but they aren't immune to garden-variety vacation drama.
Scott's solution for the conflict: a charades battle royale. Winner takes the penthouse suite. The moment he suggested Malika and Cheban settle the sleeping arrangement situation with the act-‘em-out parlor game, I wrote the following:
If he’s kidding and the cast doesn’t actually play charades for the E! cameras, I will be devastated. Now that he's dangled the prospect of a game of charades in front of me, I can't stop thinking about it. I gotta see this group do the universal signal for "movie." I love watching super famous people do super normal things. When Kris Jenner alllllmost went on a Costco run a few eps back? UGHHH we almost had it all, but then that alleged stalker went and mucked everything up. I hope this charades thing isn't Costco 2.0.
Not only did a 3 on 3 charades battle happen, but the scene lasted for several minutes. When life is beautiful, it is really, really beautiful.
Let's do this. Let the Kardashian Kharades begin.
TEAM CHEBAN: Jonathan, Kourtney, and Khloe
TEAM MALIKA: Malika, Kim, and Scott
If E! ever auctions off those slips of paper, don't tell me. Because I would be too tempted to spend every last ducat to my name.
Scott was no-nonsense
Great form, Disick. Looking like a true charades pro.
Scott's charades uniform was no-nonsense
Great pants, Disick. Looking like a true slumber party charades pro.
Kourtney proved to be the strongest charades player
Her hand really, really embodied the character of "Mosquito".
I was rooting for Team Malika...
But I knew the team was doomed when its captain broke out that weak Spiderman impression.
Penelope's reaction to Malika's Spiderman impression, though
Penelope's face says it all.
And the Kardashian Kharades winner was...
Team Cheban. Spiderman was no match for Mosquito. Ah, snap. We'll get 'em next time, Team Malika! Assuming there is a next time, of course. There'd better be a next time. Kardashian Kharades needs to be a regular thing.
...OH, MAN. Kardashian Kharades totally needs to be the next mobile game.
I'm not exactly sure what this hypothetical game would entail, but I don't care. I'm already on board.
