Kurt Elizabeth Hummel is a main character on Glee. He is an alumnus of William McKinley High School. Kurt is the first known openly gay student to attend McKinley, and is also a former member of the New Directions, the Dalton Academy Warblers, the McKinley Titans, and the Cheerios. He currently lives with his friends Santana Lopez and Rachel Berry in New York. Before and in Season One, he was living alone with his father, as Kurt's mother died when he was eight.
In Season Two Kurt transferred to Dalton Academy, due to being bullied by David Karofsky, because of his sexuality. It is at Dalton where he first meets Blaine. David was struggling coming to terms with his own sexuality at the time. However, he later returns to McKinley in the episode Born This Way. Kurt was in a relationship with Blaine Anderson starting in season two, but split at the end of The Break Up. During Season Four he moves in with Rachel Berry in New York and works at Vogue. He is now attending NYADA after he was accepted in Swan Song.
BiographyMr. Cellophane after Mr. Schuester signs on as the new director. He is then accepted into the glee club and is seen singing Sit Down, You're Rockin' The Boat, the first song the glee club sings together. At the end of the episode Kurt is seen singing Don't Stop Believin' with the other new members.
Kurt is first seen in the choir room practicing Freak Out with the rest of the glee club and calls the song "really gay." He is later seen when Rachel calls together the club to plan another number for the assembly, and sarcastically remarks that the school wants blood instead of the number that Mr. Schue wanted them to perform. He performs Push It with the club at the school assembly.
Kurt and Mercedes Jones form a friendship out of their fashion rivalry. Mercedes also develops a crush on Kurt. Kurt sees that Mercedes is lonely and he offers to cheer her up by taking her out shopping. The cheerleaders, driven to stir up some petty drama for the glee club, manipulate Mercedes into thinking that Kurt is straight and has feelings for her. When she confronts him about their relationship, Kurt, still closeted, lies to Mercedes and tells her that he has feelings for Rachel, although the subject of his real crush is Finn. Jealous and embarrassed, Mercedes throws a rock through the windshield of his car. When Kurt eventually tells her that he is gay, she asks why he wasn't honest with her. Kurt admits that he is afraid and does not want anyone other than her to know the truth of his sexuality.
When Burt walks in on Kurt dancing to Single Ladies with Brittany Pierce and Tina Cohen-Chang, Kurt attempts to hide his sexuality by claiming that he has joined the football team and that he is dating Tina. Desperate to gain his father's approval, Kurt actually "auditions" for the team. Much to the surprise of Coach Tanaka, his father, and his teammates, Kurt turns out to be a spectacular place kicker and he scores the final point to win the first game of the season. The players lift Kurt onto their shoulders after the winning kick; he looks to the stands where his father is proudly shouting that Kurt is his son. After the game, Kurt nervously admits to his dad that he is gay. Burt reveals that he has known since Kurt was three and asked for a pair of "sensible heels" for his birthday. Even though he's not entirely comfortable with the situation, Burt reminds his son that he loves Kurt no matter what: that he will always support and be proud of him.
When former Glee club member April Rhodes joins the Glee club, Kurt is initially reluctant to accept her into the club but is moved to the point of tears after she performs Maybe This Time. April attempts to get him fully on her side by sneaking him alcohol (which he dislikes at first but accepts after she tells him it will give him courage) and vintage male muscle magazines, which he happily accepts. Emma Pillsbury, the school guidance counselor, eventually sees a haggard-looking Kurt walking through the hallway, drunk. Kurt mistakes her for Bambi and vomits on her shoes.
During a mash-off between the boys and the girls, Kurt tries to work with the girls, only for Mr. Schuester to make him cross back over. When the boys perform their mash-up rather enthusiastically, Kurt reveals to the girls that, still technically with them, that all the boys took pseudoephedrine tablets to enhance their performance. Kurt watches with great interest as the girls perform Halo/Walking on Sunshine.
Finn debates throwing a slushie on Kurt. Though his teammates will beat him up if he doesn't do it, Finn is torn. Eventually Kurt slushies himself and asks Finn if he thinks a football player would do that for him.
Mr. Schuester decides that one of the possible song selections for Sectionals will be Defying Gravity from the musical Wicked. Kurt is overjoyed at the idea of getting the chance to sing the song, but his hopes are dashed when Mr. Schuester immediately awards the solo to Rachel Berry. Kurt relays his disappointment to his father and a furious Burt storms down to the school, demanding his son be given the chance to at least audition for the part. Will agrees that it was unfair of him to ignore Kurt's interest in the piece and agrees to let both Rachel and Kurt audition for the solo. It is decided that the club members will vote for the winner, which worries Rachel because she knows that the rest of the students like Kurt better. Kurt, however, asks that the kids choose fairly on the merits of their musical talent, despite him being more popular and a better dresser. Before the competition takes place, Burt receives an anonymous phone call at work calling Kurt a fag. Kurt has intercepted similar calls for some time and is more disturbed at how badly his father takes the incident. Kurt, not wanting to give his father more grief by singing a girl's song in public, throws the high note during the audition. Burt is disappointed that his son took a dive for his sake but is touched by his actions, calling Kurt "strong" like his mother had been. Kurt responds by saying that his father is more important than stardom. Kurt later performs Proud Mary with the rest of the club.
When the Glee group is split into pairs and asked to sing ballads to their partners, Kurt and Finn are assigned as partners. Finn of course, is reluctant to pair with a boy, for fear of being pegged as gay. Kurt however, is overjoyed at the idea and attempts to flirt with Finn through the guise of friendship and giving advice for Finn's personal problems. His plan works in that he and Finn become closer friends, but backfires in other ways. In the end, Kurt hints to Finn that he has feelings for the other boy, with his ballad choice I Honestly Love You, but Finn seems to misunderstand.Grease. While the look does get Finn's attention, Finn admits that he prefers Rachel as she normally is. Rachel then confronts Kurt, who admits that they are both in love with the same man and that as long as Quinn is in the picture, neither of them will ever have him—Kurt less so, because Finn isn't gay. In the end, although not quite friends, both have bonded over their shared heartbreak. Kurt is seen wearing a blonde wig and dancing with Quinn during the group performance of the mash-up Hair/Crazy in Love.
It is Kurt who suggests the group not fight the fact the glee club is cut from the yearbook, due to all the previous years' glee club photos being defaced by the rest of the student body. But in the end, the kids allow themselves to be photographed for the yearbook (which goes on to be defaced as usual). Kurt also joins the rest of the group in taping a mattress commercial. Kurt performs backup vocals during Jump.
After Sectionals, Kurt, along with the rest of the Glee club, feel elated at their victory and think that their social status will be elevated. This fantasy is quickly dashed, as he, Rachel and Mercedes all receive slushies to the face. At Glee rehearsal, the group is given the assignment of singing songs involving the word "Hello." When Mr. Schue asks the group how they say "hello" on the phone, Kurt gives the morbid response of "No, she's dead. This is her son." When the group later discovers that Rachel is dating the male lead of their rivals Vocal Adrenaline, Jesse St. James, it is Kurt who promises to kick Rachel out of Glee if she doesn't end things with him.Sue Sylvester insulting Will's hair again and are surprised to see Will knock the wind out of Sue by insulting her hairstyle. Sue is so shocked and hurt by the low-blow, she begins to assault and terrorize the students. Feeling bad for her, Kurt and Mercedes go and offer their make-over services to her in exchange for borrowing the male Cheerios for their Madonna project. Sue agrees and together the three of them recreate Madonna's Vogue music video under the direction of Artie. Despite the new looks they offer Sue, she decides in the end that she's better being herself and that rather than change herself, she changes everyone else. Starting with Kurt and Mercedes. She then extends an invitation to them to join the Cheerios, doing musical performances to the cheerleading routines. Seeing as neither Kurt nor Mercedes have gotten solos under Will's Glee guidance, they accept and decide to do both Glee Club and the Cheerios. Their first performance with the Cheerios is a sexy duet to Madonna's 4 Minutes at a pep rally, shocking Will. He is not pleased by them "joining the enemy camp" asking if they could have warned him beforehand. Mercedes and Kurt however respond that he never warned them about passing them up for solos. In the end, Will has no choice but to accept their decision. At the end of the episode, Kurt and Mercedes receive solos in the episode's closing number, Like a Prayer.
Kurt again attempts to woo Finn with disastrous results, this time by manipulating their widowed parents. During Parent/Teacher Night, Kurt attends the function with his father, in the hopes of introducing him to Carole Hudson. His hope is that that if Burt and Carole connect, it would allow for him and Finn to grow closer, perhaps even move in together. The parents hit it off and soon begin dating. However, it is not until later that Finn discovers the relationship, leaving Kurt unprepared for Finn's angry rejection. In the hopes of convincing Finn otherwise, he sings the ballad A House Is Not a Home. Aside from Finn joining in for the bridge of the song, A House Is Not a Home is the first song since Mr. Cellophane that Kurt has performed entirely on his own. As part of his plan, Kurt plans a family night, where the Hudsons and Hummels would be allowed to get better acquainted. His plan however has an unexpected downside, as he find himself to be completely shut out of the conversation when Finn and his father begin talking sports, which Finn's mother gladly jumps in on. That evening, Burt confronts Kurt about his change in behavior, to which Kurt reveals how much it hurt to see his father connect so much better with Finn than with his own son. Kurt then dismisses his father, so as to avoid crying in front of him. Before leaving, however, Burt asks Kurt if he introduced him to Carole for Burt's sake or for something else, implying he suspects Kurt's attraction to Finn. Unable to deal with this, Kurt conspires with Finn to break their parents up. However, in the end, Finn comes to accept that Burt's relationship with his mother is beneficial to her, after seventeen years of being alone. Finn invites Burt to watch the basketball game with him, during which the two fall into a discussion of sports again. Both however are unaware of Kurt watching them from a nearby window outside crying. Alongside all of this, his relationship with Mercedes hits choppy waters when he suggests she needs to lose weight so she can keep herself on the Cheerios. He strongly desires to no longer be considered a loser, enjoying his interaction with the Cheerios, such as in the group's hatred of Rachel's personality, stating that "The Glee Club would rather die than see Rachel and Jesse be the new Beyoncé and Jay-Z." He is humbled, however, when Mercedes, thanks to the help of Quinn, realizes that she is fine the way that she is and proceeds to sing Beautiful at a pep rally, after which Kurt apologizes to her.
Kurt sneaks around Sue Sylvester’s office and steals her video of Physical, in which she is doing exercises. It is immediately posted on YouTube by Finn. When the "Glist," a list of the hottest members of the Glee club, Kurt is upset to find that he (along with Artie, Mercedes, and Tina) isn't on the list. Kurt holds a meeting in the music room, with Mercedes, Tina, and Artie, as well as Brittany, who was only there because she had forgotten how to leave - but, she admits that she wants to be higher than fourth on the Glist. The five try to earn a "bad-ass" reputation in hopes that it will get them on (or higher on) the Glist. They come up with an idea of causing chaos in the library, by having an impromptu performance of U Can't Touch This, led by Artie. To their dismay, the librarian enjoys the performance. Still wanting to earn a bad rep, Kurt admits to Sue Sylvester that he stole the Physical tape, but again, it backfires.
Kurt is saddened by the fact that his dad is paying more attention to Finn and in the mistaken belief that if he becomes "straight" his father will love him again, he changes his persona to straight, becoming "Butch Kurt"—a "man's man." He dons flannel and trucker wear instead of his usual lingerie, speaks in a deeper voice, and sings Pink Houses by Mellencamp for glee, to which everyone listens uncomfortably. Afterwards, Will feels that Kurt perhaps didn't understand the assignment as he was supposed to express himself and says that it is important Kurt not give up who he is because it might be easier to be someone else. However, one fan of the performance is Brittany, who tells Kurt the song was hot, and that before, she had thought he was "Capital G Gay," but now wants to make out with him. Later, Kurt makes sure his father "catches" him and Brittany kissing, which Burt finds extremely odd but proceeds to humor him, all the while encouraging his son to be true to himself and saying that he will always support him. After being rejected by his father again in favor of spending time with Finn, Kurt has finally gives up and returns back to his true persona singing Rose's Turn in the The April Rhodes Civic Pavilion, where he is confronted by his dad, who tells him that he likes him as he is, not what Kurt thinks he wants him to be; "Butch Kurt." After finally accepting that his father loves him no matter what, Kurt is at last free again to pursue his feelings towards Finn.
Not much of Kurt is really seen in this episode, but he is seen getting excited and leaping off his seat when Bryan Ryan presents the 'New Directions Jean Jackets' and looks thoroughly irked when the one he took is taken from him. It is unknown what Kurt wrote down as his dream on the piece of paper.
Burt then proceeds to throw Finn out of his home despite the problems it might cause his relationship with Carole. Finn rushes out of the room, while Kurt is left devastated. Finn proceeds to make several attempts reconciling with Kurt, all of which are rejected, until at last Finn saves Kurt from several bullies attempting to assault Kurt for wearing his Lady Gaga costume, while wearing one of his own.
Will attempts to seduce Sue and break her heart in the hopes of teaching her a lesson. The plan works but results in Sue becoming horribly depressed and unwilling to take the Cheerios to the National Cheerleader finals. Kurt is the only Cheerio not distraught over Sue's recent bout of depression, as he has glee club to keep him sane. When Will fixes things, Kurt proceeds to lead the Cheerios to victory, by singing a selection of Celine Dion songs in French, winning Sue Nationals for the sixth year in a row. Meanwhile, the glee club is horrified to discover that Jesse has returned to Vocal Adrenaline and a more intense rivalry explodes between the two groups, climaxing with Rachel being egged by the rival group. Furious, the boys of the group proceed to set out for vengeance. Kurt joins the rest of boys, stating that despite everything Rachel is their friend and that only they may belittle and insult her. In the end, New Directions gets vengeance by performing a funk number in which Kurt shows off the low notes in his range at the beginning. Vocal Adrenaline is not capable of doing a funk number because they are self-admitted "soulless automatons."Josh Groban who feels they had the most heart. However, after Olivia Newton-John dismisses their entire performance, everyone thinks that New Directions should lose. It is only Sue who votes for them to win the competition. They rank third place, which means that, according to Figgins, the group will be forced to disband. All the kids talk about their lives before joining the Glee club and Kurt shares how he wasn't honest about who he was. They sing a "farewell" song to Will, To Sir, With Love, which Sue overhears. Moved by the love that the kids show for Will, Sue asks the principal to give them one more year, allowing the group another chance to win Regionals after the summer.
Following events of last year's Regionals, New Directions grew closer over the summer break. However, despite the personal friendships, the group finds themselves still suffering a major rep issue as a result of being in Glee. Kurt, in particular, is slushied on the first day back for trying to stand up for himself. In an effort to expand the group's ranks, they attempted to promote Glee club to the rest of the school. Unfortunately, their efforts such as singing Empire State of Mind to the student body in the lunchtime courtyard gained few results. Rachel managed to sway Sunshine Corazon into auditioning but grew fearful of her joining their group when she discovered how good of a singer she really was. Rachel tried to get Kurt and Mercedes to join her in taking down Sunshine, supposedly for "their benefit." Neither of them were impressed with Rachel and were later furious to discover that she had intentionally sent Sunshine to a crackhouse rather than to auditions.
Kurt was the one who insisted the most on doing Britney Spears music. He is the only one aware of a Facebook campaign that is pleading for New Directions to perform Britney Spears music at the fall homecoming assembly. Most of the kids are excited about the campaign but Mr Schuester is adamant about his no Britney Spears policy, as he believes she is a bad role model. After listening to Dr. Howell's speech about oral hygiene, it is discovered that Brittany, Artie and Rachel each need to go to the dentist. While under anesthesia, each of them has a vivid Britney Spears fantasy, which in turn influences their lives in a positive way. Kurt is very quick to pick up on this connection, immediately pointing it out to Mr. Schuester, who does not want to hear it. During a passionate argument about the importance of Britney Spears to pop culture, Kurt releases his anger verbally on Mr. Schue, which leads him to send Kurt to the principal's office. Eventually, Mr Schuester changes his mind and allows the group to perform Toxic at the Homecoming assembly, provided that he gets to sing with the kids also. The performance does not have the result the kids are hoping for, as it creates a "Britney Spears Sex Riot." Sue pulls the fire alarm, stopping the performance, and the students evacuate.Emma runs to Kurt’s French class to tell Kurt the news. Will and Emma rush Kurt to the hospital to see his father. Kurt goes to his Dad's hospital room and asks his Dad to hold his hand. Kurt seems to want to bear the burden alone, only letting Finn in after he points out that he thought they were a family and Burt would be the closest he's ever going to get to a father. Later, everyone in the glee club comforts him. Kurt finds Rachel singing Papa, Can You Hear Me? to his father and asks them to leave. He remembers all the good times with his dad and sings I Want to Hold Your Hand in Glee club, showing all his emotions (as he had been acting very calm through the dilemma) at the end of the song. Mercedes Jones asks him to come to church with her. Although he doesn't believe in God, Kurt agrees,and at church Mercedes sings Bridge over Troubled Water with everyone in the church comforting him. Kurt goes back and holds Burt's hand again saying that he doesn't believe in God, but he believes in both of them and Burt starts to squeeze his hand, signaling that he is going to be all right.
Kurt initially believes that the newest member of the Glee Club, Sam Evans, may be gay because Kurt can tell Sam dyes his hair, and proposes that they sing a duet together for the duets competition. When Finn finds out, he pleads with Kurt to break it off as he believes that doing a duet with Kurt may cause Sam to be harassed by others for singing with a gay male which may potentially lead to him leaving Glee Club. Kurt doesn't listen, but after a talk with his dad, he comes to the conclusion that, while incredibly unfair, it would be the right thing to do to let Sam sing a duet with someone else. He then decides that he will sing Le Jazz Hot on his own, wearing a costume that represents both the male and female side of the human psyche, thus making it a "duet." At the end, Rachel confronts Kurt and informs him that she knows he is lonely. During this heart to heart talk, they come to the realization that they aren't as different as they believe they are, and sing a duet of Happy Days Are Here Again/Get Happy as the episode closes.
Mr Schuester decided to have the kids perform the famed and controversial musical Rocky Horror Picture Show under the pretext that it pushes the artistic envelope, but in truth, he's doing it solely to gain the attention of Emma Pillsbury. He immediately casts Kurt in the role of Doctor Frank-N-Furter, but he refuses the part, saying there's no way he'd play a transvestite in fishnets, high heels and lipstick, to which Santana mockingly asks if Kurt is opposed to playing the role "because that look was last season." Instead Mike Chang takes the role instead. (later to be replaced by Mercedes). Kurt is instead cast as Riff-Raff, and joins in on singing backup on Dammit Janet and shares the male lead with Finn in Time Warp.
Kurt begins to suffer increasing physical and verbal abuse from Dave Karofsky, being painfully shoved into lockers and openly insulted. After Kurt is slammed into a locker by Dave, the glee club welcomes Puck back from juvie as Will unveils their upcoming sectional competitors - including the all boys Dalton Academy and a school of elderly people completing their GEDs. Will revives last year's boys vs girls tournament to fire up the glee clubbers. Dave hammers Kurt again and when Kurt speaks out, Dave threatens to unleash "The Fury" - aka his fist - on him. Sensing that Kurt's been growing more tense and belligerent in recent weeks, Will offers to help. Kurt tells Will that he, like everyone else in school, too easily lets homophobia slide and that he's not feeling challenged musically. In response, Will alters the competition, requiring the teams to tackles songs better suited to the opposite gender and Kurt takes the lead in shaping the boys' approach. While Kurt attempts to stay strong, he finds himself slowly cracking under the strain of being so easily bullied as well as being the only openly gay student in the school. To add insult to injury, when Mr Schuester presents that the group perform another boys vs girls mash-up competition, Mr Schuester again forces Kurt to join the boys' team as opposed to the girls' team, which he would have preferred.Later, Will sees the aftermath of Kurt again being bullied by Dave and attempts to reach out to him. Kurt feels so isolated that even the support of Schuester does nothing to help make his life easier at the school and even forces him to do stuff he'd rather not; such as have to sing with the guys. Hoping to help ease Kurt's feelings, Will suggests the boys perfor[[Never Been Kissed|]]m music done primarily by girls and that the girls performed songs primarily by boys. This raises Kurt's spirits, but only for a moment; when he attempts to offer up suggestions, Puck and the other boys dismiss his efforts and also manage to insult him, suggesting that he do something "useful" and go investigate their rivals from Dalton Academy. Furious about his ideas being shot down and feeling rejected by his peers, Kurt does just that, and sneaks into Dalton. Noticing the boys all are rushing off to somewhere, he stops one of them, claiming to be a new student and asks what's happening. The student introduces himself as Blaine and explains that Dalton's Glee Club are about to throw an impromptu performance. When Kurt asks if the Glee club is cool at Dalton, Blaine says that the Warblers are like rock stars. Taking Kurt's hand, he rushes them to where the Warblers will perform and is revealed to be the lead singer for their show choir. Kurt is enthralled with their performance of Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. Kurt is overwhelmed by how accepting everyone at the school is and seems smitten by the attention that Blaine shows him during the song. Afterwards, it’s revealed that Blaine and two of his friends Wes and David are aware that Kurt was a spy but actually found the fact that he was "such a horrible spy" endearing and did not hold it against him. Instead, they have coffee with him. Confessing to being a spy, Kurt asks several of the Warblers if they're all gay. Blaine says that he is, but the others explain that their school has a zero-tolerance policy on harassment. Alone with Blaine, Kurt reveals that he's the only out student at McKinley High and is constantly harassed by Karofsky. Blaine had a similar experience at his school before Dalton and regrets running away. He advises Kurt that prejudice is ignorance and by confronting Karofsky he'll teach him that he can't get away with it. Blaine suggests that while Kurt could do what he did and transfer schools, another option would be to confront his bully. Staying in contact, Blaine urges Kurt to have "courage" via a phone text. Kurt takes his advice, and after being shoved into a locker by Karofsky once more, Kurt calls him out and follows him, demanding to know what his problem is.
Dave becomes extremely defensive and says he doesn't want Kurt "peeking at his junk," ordering Kurt to back off. Kurt refuses to do so, stating that Karofsky isn't his "type," that Dave can't "punch the gay out of [him] any more than [he] can punch the ignoramus out of [Karofsky]." Mid-insult, Dave grabs Kurt and kisses him. Dave attempts for a second one but Kurt immediately pushes him away, completely in shock by what just happened, causing Karofsky to punch a locker and run from the room, clearly upset. Kurt gets Blaine to help him confront Karofsky about his closeted homosexuality. Kurt and Blaine approach Dave, who's back to his insulting persona, denying his feelings and growing more violent when they try to talk him into accepting his feelings. Dave first attempts to deny what happened but then becomes violently defensive, pushing Blaine into a fence. When Kurt defends Blaine by pushing Dave away, he runs off. Still in a sense of shock after what happened, Kurt explains to Blaine that before Dave, he had never been kissed when it actually "counted." Blaine offers to buy Kurt lunch. It is later revealed that Kurt now sees Blaine as a mentor, hanging a picture him in his locker with the word "courage" beneath.
Kurt begins to blow off Mercedes, in favor of his new friendship with Blaine. Mercedes is curious about Kurt's budding relationship with Blaine, but he assures her that it's not a romantic situation. This new friendship results in Mercedes spending most of her time focusing her attention on fighting Sue Sylvester's new healthy food amendment in the school. Mercedes is still fuming about the new lunch menu when Kurt reveals that he's set her up on a date to ease her left-out feelings over his relationship with Blaine, but she's miffed that Kurt's knee-jerk choice is one of the school's few black students as her match, and she instead throws herself into her Tater Tot protest, full-on "Norma Rae" style and sparks a student revolt in the school.
Kurt begins to grow concerned about Mercedes and attempts to fix her up with one of the school jocks, who seems interested in her. He talks about how love "is around the corner." Dave Karofsky then appears and winks at Kurt, leaving Kurt unsettled. Kurt takes Blaine and Mercedes out for dinner. It is evident during the outing how close Blaine and Kurt have become as they share a lot in common; including similar interests books and magazines. Mercedes seems to fade out during their chatting. Kurt is comfortable and relieved that he can discuss "gay issues" with another. He high fives, pats, and touches Blaine throughout the conversation. When Mercedes smuggles Tater Tots into the school, Kurt tells her she's substituting food for love - and substituting Kurt for a boyfriend. He assures her that she'll find someone and urges her to take care of herself in the meantime. After Mercedes agrees with him and goes off to meet the jock he tried to set her up with, Dave confronts Kurt asking if he told anyone else about the kiss they shared, with Dave claiming that Kurt kissed him, rather than the other way around. Kurt replies he hasn't told anyone to which Dave says, "Good, because if you tell anybody, I'll kill you." He walks off, leaving Kurt terrified for his life.New Directions to sing at the wedding. At the same time, Kurt is terrified by Dave Karofsky and begins to panic whenever Dave is near him. Dave walks up to him, touches his upper chest, and attempts a smile at Kurt. He then grabs the wedding figurine Kurt is holding, asking "Can I have this?"before walking off, leaving Kurt looking unsettled. Will sees this and asks Kurt if he's alright, causing Kurt to shake and cry; Will takes him to the principal. After Will and Sue say they cannot do anything to help him, the boys on the football confront Dave in the locker room and demand he leave Kurt alone. Dave pushes Mike into Artie. This causes Sam to step in, and a fight escalates between the two of them until Coach Beiste steps in. Sam is left with a black eye as a result of the fight. Later, while Kurt is giving Finn and Burt dancing lessons, Dave sees and mocks them, angering Burt, who asks who the boy mocking them was. Kurt hesitates and when Finn tells Kurt to tell his father the truth or he will, Kurt tells Burt that Dave has been harassing him for a few weeks. When his dad presses Kurt for more information, he admits that Dave threatened to kill him, which shocks both Finn and Burt. Burt rushes after Dave and throws him up against the wall, threatening Karofsky to pick a fight with him. He is pulled off of himby Finn and Kurt. The situation causes Sue to call Dave's dad, Paul Karofsky, to the school. Paul notes that Dave has been acting differently and takes Kurt's side. Upon Kurt telling Sue that Dave threatened to kill him, Sue expels Dave. Burt marries Carole, making Finn and Kurt stepbrothers. At the reception, Finn says that "Furt" has been born, and he has Kurt's back no matter what it costs him. Finn and the rest of the Glee Club proceed to sing Bruno Mars' Just the Way You Are to him, with Finn putting his past insecurities with Kurt aside, and they dance, ending with a hug. Sue reveals that her expulsion of Dave has been overridden by the school board and he'll be returning the next day. She resigns in protest, allowing Figgins to return as acting principal and says she'll be a set of eyes and ears for Kurt in the hallway. Kurt leaves the office and runs into Burt and Carole, who offer to use their honeymoon money to pay for his tuition at Dalton Academy. Kurt goes into the choir room and announces he's transferring to Dalton Academy, effective immediately, because Dave is returning the next day. All the guys offer to protect him, "like the Secret Service," but Kurt refuses. He walks out of the choir room in tears, leaving all of glee club stunned and upset, not only about Kurt's leaving, but also that Kurt would be their competition for Sectionals (Rachel's worry).
Kurt, who is now a member of Dalton Academy finds himself struggling to adjust to the energy of the place. Meanwhile, Lauren Zizes decides to join New Directions. The Warblers invite Kurt to join them for a meeting. He must first watch over the Warblers mascot, a canary named Pavarotti, in order to join the glee club. He makes jokes that no one laughs at. Kurt presents an idea for Sectionals, that the Warblers sing a Duran Duran song, but the council politely declines. Blaine comes over to him and offers Kurt the chance to audition to sing a solo at Sectionals, because Kurt showed guts by suggesting new ideas. Kurt goes to Rachel for help and she helps him learn Don't Cry for Me Argentina for his audition. When he is talking to Rachel, he mentions that he was hiding in his car for an hour to make sure he didn't run into anyone who would bully him. Blaine tries to get him not to show off during the song but he does. Unfortunately, Kurt is not selected; Nick and Jeff, both of whom had auditioned multiple times for the solo, are told they can go forward to the next level of auditions. Blaine tells Kurt that he doesn't have to show off or try so hard, and to try to blend in. At Sectionals, Kurt runs into Rachel, where she admits her own shock that he didn't get the solo and jokingly states that the reason she had never been as nice to him before was because of the fact he was her biggest competition. She admits they all miss him, and he says he misses his old school as well. He also explains how he felt that leaving, he let the team down. Rachel admits that the most important thing is for Kurt to be safe. During their talk, he accidentally lets slip that he knew Finn had slept with Santana, assuming that Rachel had known already. Blaine comes up and gets Kurt, telling him it is time to go on stage. The Warblers perform Hey, Soul Sister, before New Directions goes up, and Kurt is pleased to see that a majority of his friends from New Directions smile up at him from the audience with pride and support, even giving them a standing ovation at the end. He returns the kind gesture and leads the audience to give a standing ovation for New Directions after they perform. He is seen sitting next to Blaine. In the end, both the Warblers and New Directions tie for first place at Sectionals, meaning both groups will be competing again at Regionals against Westvale High School's Aural Intensity. After the competition, Kurt, who is still taking care of Pavarotti, becomes scared that the bird might be dying, when he notes that he is becoming weak and his feathers are falling out. He texts Blaine, who assures him that the warbler is simply molting. Blaine assures Kurt that Pavarotti will be fine by claiming, "He's got food, water, he seems to like his cage. Just give it a little while. He'll be singing again in no time." This can be perceived as a metaphor for Kurt's transfer to Dalton. Later we see Kurt smiling at the canary.
Kurt continues to find life at Dalton Academy somewhat daunting, with regards to the academic work itself. He is pleased when Blaine arrives and convinces him to stop studying, so as to help him with a duet he is doing for an out of school performance. He expresses how sad he is that "the world" would never let him and Blaine sing together (as duet partners). Together Blaine and Kurt sing Baby, It's Cold Outside in a flirtatious manner. Upon ending the song, Blaine and Kurt end up on the sofa sitting and share a small smile. Before leaving, Blaine admits that he knows his female partner will not be as good as Kurt is. After Blaine departs, Will Schuester arrives and noting the happy look on Kurt's face, and asks if Blaine is someone special. Kurt admits that they are simply friends, but that he thinks he is in love with Blaine. He also explains how much harder the school work is at Dalton. Will then explains that the point of his visit, aside from checking in on Kurt, is for help figuring out a Christmas gift for Sue (who rigged the staff secret Santa). Kurt suggests a fur-lined track suit.
At Dalton Academy, Kurt, Blaine, and the other Warblers work out a routine to Destiny's Child's Bills, Bills, Bills, in preparation for Regionals. Rachel and Mercedes fill Kurt and Blaine in on what's happening at McKinley (Finn hasn't uttered a word of it at home): the football team is short of players and Coach Beiste has posted a sign-up sheet looking for new recruits, but the other students are afraid to volunteer. Blaine informs them that according to regulations, all they need are four additional players and they'll be allowed to compete. Blaine tells the girls some facts about high school football and tells them he and Kurt will be at the game, cheering them on. Later we see them cheering Finn and the team on, sitting by Burt and Carole.
We see Kurt daydreaming and writing "Blaine plus Kurt," with hearts in a notebook, which he hides when Blaine approaches. While getting coffee, Blaine confesses to Kurt that he is in love. Kurt is thrilled, thinking Blaine is in love with him, in part because Blaine pays attention to him and even knows his favorite coffee order. Blaine pulls Kurt into an emergency meeting of the Warblers, where Blaine announces that he's in love. Blaine then asks the Warblers to help him serenade the object of his affection with a performance off campus, a major breech of Warbler tradition since 1927. Kurt deftly defends Blaine's request and persuades the Warblers to agree, but he's stunned to discover that Blaine wants them to sing at The Gap because the one he's pining for is a junior manager there. Kurt is upset and goes to a sleep over with Rachel and Mercedes. They convince Kurt to go to the mall and check out the competition. It dawns on Kurt that he may have made the whole relationship with Blaine up in his head. At The Gap, Kurt scopes out Blaine's love interest, Jeremiah, and supports Blaine's bid to win him over. Blaine is nervous when they get to the Gap and wants to back out but Kurt tells him to "man up," and reminds Blaine that Jeremiah will "love" him because he is amazing. Blaine and The Warblers sing Robin Thicke's When I Get You Alone to Jeremiah, the junior manger, in the store. Kurt is shown sulking of to the side during the duration of the song.. Later, they sit together waiting for Jeremiah to come out of the store, Kurt still looks a bit jealous. Jeremiah comes out with an upset look on his face and clearly, though politely, rejects Blaine. His plan backfired: Jeremiah gets fired because his manager didn't like the disruption- and neither did Jeremiah, who's just been publicly outed at work. He tells Blaine that, despite their coffee meetings, they aren't dating and that anything between them would be illegal because Blaine is underage. This breaks Blaine's heart and Kurt finds him in a very negative mood the next day. Blaine says he made the whole Jeremiah thing up in his head, the same way Kurt said he had. To cheer him up, Kurt has the Warblers perform at Breadstix for his "Lonely Hearts Club." They sing Silly Love Songs to New Directions and the other Breadstix patrons.
Kurt accompanies Blaine to Rachel's house party. Kurt pretends to drink, telling Finn that he is still trying to impress Blaine, who is quickly becoming intoxicated. During Rachel's turn in a game of Spin the Bottle, the bottle lands on Blaine. They kiss and, to everyone's surprise, both Rachel and Blaine seem to enjoy it. Rachel and Blaine then perform Don't You Want Me, with Kurt watching uncomfortably. The next morning, Blaine is in Kurt's bed, passed out from the night before. Burt comes to his son's room only to discover Blaine, who groggily asks where he is. Burt later asks his son why there was a boy in his bed; Kurt explains that Blaine was drunk from the party and couldn't drive, so he brought him home. He then chides Kurt for being inappropriate, but Kurt claims that nothing sexual happened between him and Blaine. Kurt angrily concedes not to have anyone who "might be gay" spend the night without asking Burt first. Kurt asks his father to step out of his comfort zone and learn about gay relationships, so that he can come to him with questions regarding romance, just like any other son would be able to do. Later, while Blaine and Kurt are having coffee, Rachel calls Blaine to ask him out. Kurt asks Blaine why he agreed and tells Blaine that he shouldn't be leading her on. Blaine explains that he's not leading her on. He said the kiss felt good, and he's never really been anyone's boyfriend before, so he doesn't know if he is gay. Kurt immediately tells Blaine that bisexuality is just something that gay guys hide behind when they "want to hold hands with someone in the hallway and feel normal about it." Blaine defensively asks why Kurt is so upset by this. Kurt tells Blaine that he looks up to him and says that he is proud of who he is, but now he's afraid that Blaine is going to tiptoe back into the closet. Blaine yells at Kurt. Blaine tells Kurt that it's great Kurt is sure about who he is but "some of us aren't so lucky." Blaine then proceeds to storm out of the shop, sarcastically saying that he would say "bye," but he doesn't want to risk offending Kurt. Kurt helps Rachel clean her basement after her date with Blaine to find out what happened."Rachel claims that it was "lovely." Kurt, still believing that Blaine is gay, agrees to a bet with Rachel: she will kiss Blaine and see if there are any sparks when they aren't drunk. Rachel and Kurt await Blaine's arrival at the coffee shop, with Rachel excited to learn if she will end up "with a new boyfriend who can keep up with me vocally and give me vaguely Eurasian-looking children." As soon as he enters, Rachel kisses Blaine passionately. His response: "Yep, I'm gay. One hundred percent gay." He thanks her for clearing that up for him, before walking away. Kurt's about to console her but Rachel is surprisingly happy as well: "I just had a relationship with a man who turned out to be gay," she explains. "That is songwriting gold!"Aural Intensity, Kurt dismisses this as typical Sue nonsense. He tells her that he is not in cahoots with her schemes, and she informs him that he just made a powerful enemy. Blaine, however, thinks the Warblers need to respond to the info by adding sex appeal to their performances. Blaine unveils the Warblers' sexed-up new routine (complete with foam machine and beach balls), the Neon Trees' Animal, for the girls at their sister school. Blaine tells Kurt that his "sexy faces" looked like he was having gas pains, causing Kurt to think his lack of sexual experience and knowledge is going to be a problem. Kurt admits that he's about as "sexy as a baby penguin." At the time, Blaine is attempting to teach Kurt how to be sexy by practicing more sultry facial expressions in front of a mirror at Kurt's home. Kurt admits that he can't act sexy because he knows nothing about sex. He admits he's watched pornography before but can't find any of it arousing due to it bringing up thoughts about whether or not the stars' mothers would have approved. Blaine then seriously asked Kurt if they could have a conversation about sex, offering to tell Kurt what he knows. Kurt turns this offer down, saying he doesn't what to know the details, that he prefers romance, and that he's learned enough for one day. He then asks Blaine to leave. Blaine approaches Burt at the auto shop, asking if he's ever spoken with Kurt about sex. Burt said that he feels Kurt will bring up sex when he's ready. Blaine, however, is concerned that Kurt may already be behind the curve and might make a serious mistake in the heat of passion one day. Blaine envies Kurt and Burt's relationship and urges Burt to take advantage of their closeness but apologizes if he's overstepping his bounds - which Burt tells him he is. Blaine explains that he cares about Kurt and doesn't ever want to see him hurt. This leads to Burt having a heartfelt conversation with Kurt about sex and treating his body with respect by not hooking up with any random stranger. Burt presents, to a very resistant Kurt, free clinic sex pamphlets to pave the way for a sex talk. "This is going to suck for both of us," admits Burt, "but we're going to get through it together, and we're gonna both be better men because of it." Burt patiently explains that he wants Kurt to do what he wants to when he's ready, but he also wants Kurt to use sex as a way to connect to another person, saying, "Don't throw yourself around like you don't matter, because you matter." Misery, by Maroon 5, occasionally being flirty with Kurt, who is less than pleased. Kurt can't stand Blaine having all the solos. After the performance ends, Kurt informs Blaine that, though the vocals were great, singing Misery for Regionals would ensure them a loss—and that all of the songs going to Blaine was wasting the talent of the other Warblers. Kurt admits he is jealous of Blaine's leading vocals in every song. Pavarotti suddenly dies, so Kurt goes to school in black clothes, rather than the standard uniform, and decides to perform Blackbird by the Beatles for the other Warblers as a way of mourning as well as having an excuse to have a solo. Blaine joins in on the backup vocals halfway through the song, which leads the rest of the glee club to sing along as well. Blaine stares at Kurt throughout the entirety of the song. Afterwards, Blaine organizes a duet as their opening number for Regionals, stating that if the Warblers made Blaine carry the weight of the competition on his shoulders, they would surely lose. He specifically asks Kurt to be his duet partner. Kurt is shocked, saying that it isn't right, because everyone should have a chance to audition. Later, while Kurt is decorating the coffin for Pavarotti's funeral, Blaine approaches him to talk about the duet, saying that he picked the song Candles by Hey Monday. Kurt suspiciously asks why Blaine asked him to sing the song with him. Blaine admits that, after he watched Kurt perform Blackbird, he realized he wants to be with Kurt. He takes Kurt's hand and the two kiss, and when Blaine pulls back, claiming the two should "practice," Kurt says, "I thought we were." The two then lean towards each other and kiss again. At Regionals, Kurt admits to Blaine that he is nervous about singing the duet, fearing that he will forget the words to the song or that he will open his mouth to sing and no sound will come out. Blaine assures Kurt that his nervousness is adorable and is confident that they will do well. The two sing the duet, after which Blaine follows up with Pink's song, Raise Your Glass. After the Warbler's loss at Regionals, Blaine goes with Kurt to bury Pavarotti. Blaine asks Kurt if the burial reminds him of his mother's funeral. Kurt agrees but says his mother's coffin was bigger. Blaine notices Kurt is visibly upset, and Kurt says that he really wanted to win. Blaine assures Kurt that they did win in another aspect—they found each other. The two then hold hands as they walk under the tree.

They immediately assume he's cheating on Blaine and are convinced of it when Sam appears at school next day wearing Kurt's old jacket. Rachel confronts Kurt about it and tells him that an affair isn't worth losing Blaine, but instead of denying or admitting adultery, he replies that he is a team player and that a minute of discussing the subject means a minute less to prepare for Nationals. He also calls her insane. It is later revealed that Sam's dad lost his job and due to their financial problems, he started delivering pizza.

Kurt then proceeds to talk to Dave about being gay, saying that eventually, when Dave is ready, he'll need to come out. Kurt suggests that maybe the reason no one's been harassing him all week isn't because of the Bully Whips' protection - it might be because no one cares that he's different anymore. Because he now can sees Dave's pain rather than his bullying, Kurt suggests that maybe Dave doesn't need to torture himself over his sexuality - maybe soon he can feel free to be himself. Breaking down, Dave sincerely apologizes for tormenting Kurt. Kurt reassures him that he believes him. Seeing students pass by them, Dave regains his composure and rushes off to his next class, Calculus, but not before pleading with Kurt to wait for him. At the actual prom, Kurt enjoys himself.

Blaine offers to leave the prom with Kurt, but Kurt doesn't want to walk away. He says he wants to leave, but he doesn't want to let the bullies win, and chooses to rise to the challenge instead. He realizes that no matter what bullies try to do to him they can't hurt him or his relationship with Blaine. After he regains composure, he decides to return and accept his coronation, showing the student body that he can't be brought down.

PersonalityKurt's definitely one of the most diverse characters in the show, having interests in everything from cars to fashion, and seems to have very high standards for himself. In the beginning of the show, he appears to be somewhat superficial; Kurt is obsessed with the latest fashions, which are normally of the highest quality and most expensive brands. He is also very obsessed with his hair, spending hours preparing it, and often adjusting it at random intervals, even when performing. While many assume him to just be a snob, the truth is, this is simply a mask that Kurt wears in order to hide his insecurities and fears. He can be brutally honest, once telling Mercedes she looked like "a technicolor zebra" because of her hoodie. He's very smart, as proven through his quick-witted sense of humor and use of intelligent vocabulary. This was further proven when speaking to Mr. Schuester he told him he wasn't "challenged in the least" at McKinley. He can be manipulative at times, as seen when he tricks Rachel into dressing more like Sandy from Grease in order to win over Finn's affections, despite Kurt's knowledge Finn is attracted to the opposite look in a girl. This side of Kurt is also shown when he sets up Finn's mother with his father to get closer to Finn. As the only openly gay boy at McKinley, he tries his best to keep strong, a trait that his father and many in the Glee club value in him. However, having no friends at school who he can completely talk to about being gay, he is often seen as a very lonely individual. This loneliness has at times caused his romantic interest in certain boys to become a bit unsettling, as seen during the course of his crush with Finn. However Kurt is also a strong character as he is able to persevere through the cruelties of high school. When Kurt develops a crush he seems to fall hard, as shown with Finn in Season One and Blaine in Season Two. Kurt puts those he cares about before his own wants, despite his superficial exterior, as in Wheels where he throws a high note, thus giving up a solo in order to spare his father the stress of being ridiculed for his son singing a girl's song, and somewhat in Laryngitis, trying to change himself so that he and his father can better relate and because he felt that he wasn't doing enough to help his dad feel comfortable (though this all may or may not be a cover-up). Kurt, like Rachel and Mercedes, can be a bit of a diva at times, but he cares deeply for his fellow Glee Club members, as seen when he wanted to help the boys get revenge against Vocal Adrenaline for egging Rachel. Tina was also picked on by two bullies but is defended by Kurt. He also told the bullies to pick on him instead. He has tendencies to lash out and get defensive under pressure, as illustrated particularly in his and Blaine's fight in Blame It on the Alcohol. Kurt, while ambitious, seems to always be generous enough to appreciate real talent. He contends with both Rachel and Blaine for solos, but always acknowledges Rachel's talent and singing ability. Even when competing with her for the lead solo in Funeral, he rises to his feet and applauds and is pulled down by Santana. He is extremely good at keeping secrets, even when his safety is at stake, as seen in his relationship with Karofsky. He is also sensitive enough to forgive him later because he realizes that Karofsky is miserable. Kurt is shown throughout to be a very caring individual, even towards people he isn't close to; such as defending Rory, and shouting at Santana for "attacking" him in Mash Off. He also has a strong "family first" mentallity, as shown in Wheels when he throws the high F in order to protect his father. Kurt is also an extremely forgiving person, seen when he forgives Dave for bullying him, when he forgives Rachel for running for class president, when he forgives Mercedes for busting his window, and when he forgives Blaine for cheating on him.
Kurt is slender and quite tall in regards to the rest of his New Directions teammates. His eyes are glasz (blueish, greyish, greenish color), and his skin is very pale and clear. His hair is chestnut and wavy. His pale skin earned him the nickname "Porcelain" from Sue Sylvester. He takes very good care of himself.
He seems to never wear the same outfit twice a week unless under stress or depressed, as shown in Funk. Throughout the seasons, Kurt's fashion trends change, Season One he would always wear large amounts of clothing and as the series continued the layers began to decrease. Ryan Murphy has said this is due to Kurt's journey of accepting himself for who he is.

- He has his official fashion website, HireHummel.com.

There is speculation that "Elizabeth" is his deceased, biological mother's name. Ryan Murphy has since confirmed on Twitter that Elizabeth is Kurt's middle name. 1
