The first two episodes of Life of Kylie has received mixed reviews so far. Critics said it was “like watching a 30-minute Snapchat.” Time also noted that Kylie Jenner struggled to look normal in the show. Meanwhile, several netizens still showed some love for the show and seem to be enjoying it.

But just like any reality show, we see a side of Kylie outside of her Instagram and Snapchat persona. She said as much on the trailers, and we have a whole season to get to know the beauty mogul and social media star. So here’s what we learned from the premiere.

Since Kylie became TV-famous at nine years old, she was homeschooled. She admitted in the show that she unfollowed her old classmates during prom season because she didn’t want to see the photos. This is why she showed up at high schooler Albert Ochoa’s prom as his date. According to Metro, Albert had been rejected by girls and was shocked that Kylie showed up for him.
“I was speechless,” he told E! News. “She’s a really sweet and genuine person. When you see her on shows and stuff you really don’t get to see that like face to face. And I really thought she was sweet and genuine.”
One of the reasons Kylie agreed to go with Albert to prom was because she sympathized with him being bullied. “I have a soft spot for the outcast,” she said during the confessional. “I was kind of an outcast. I still feel like an outcast in different ways now because I can’t relate to a lot of people.”
Who's watching #LifeOfKylie? I can totally relate to her. She doesn't drive her Lambo and neither do I.

Out of all of Kylie’s cars, she doesn’t feel like driving her Lamborghini much. Such a first world problem, right? At the same time, I can totally relate…to the Lambo.
Kylie has four dogs: Norman, Bambi, and their two puppies. She calls them her “kids” before she gets actual children. She even asked the producers if she could stop them from barking so loud. Ah, she’s playing the mom card right already.
“I’m not bougie like that,” Kylie said about riding only private planes. “It’s just a lot of people at the airport. A lot of people taking pictures of you while you’re just trying to be in sweats. I just do not like the airport. It scares me.”
During the second episode, Kylie decided to book an appointment with a therapist. This is where she opened up about the struggles and frustrations she feels as a social media personality. She admitted that she can’t act “super weird” toward her friends because “TV has changed her entire personality.”
Not like the one Kylie had with rapper Tyga, though. Kylie and Jordyn are so close that they see each other all the time and are practically glued to the hip. “There are different kinds of relationships and we are in one. Not sexual, but definitely emotionally,” Jordyn admitted. “It is draining sometimes. I don’t want to say that she is a ‘needy girlfriend’ but…”
