Could there be a stranger phobia than one who fears small tiny holes? The condition is known as trypophobia; a person who fears irregular patterns or clusters of small holes. While the phobia is not listed in scientific literature (yet), little holes, however, are a deep-rooted fear Kendall Jenners suffers from. In particular, she fears pancakes. (How can she tell that the pancake is ready to be flipped over in the fry-pan if she can’t look at the bubbling holes on top of the mixture?)

“Anyone who knows me knows that I have really bad trypophobia,” the 20-year-old posted on her app. “Trypophobics are afraid of tiny little holes 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 is not the only celebrity who has a strange phobia. She’s beaten by Orlando Bloom who is afraid of little pigs, Cameron Diaz cannot stand doorknobs, Oprah Winfrey isn’t at all a fan of chewing gum, Nicole Kidman fears butterflies and perhaps the strangest of all comes from film director Woody Allen who reportedly has a fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of his mouth. 

Lucky these little gaping holes are on the back of Jenner’s Zimmermann jacket.
