It’s scary being stuck in an elevator, even when you’re Kylie Jenner and you’ve got Snapchat ready to tell all as it’s happening. Kylie and Kendall Jenner were on their way to a New York Fashion Week event when the world stopped — or at least the “large metal freight elevator” they were in stopped! The Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars got on the wrong elevator when they headed for the NYFW show with squad member and BFFs Hailey Baldwin and Jordyn Woods. The elevator was supposed to do its job and take them to their destination, but it stopped working with the four girls inside.
“So my worst nightmare just happened. We are stuck in the elevator.”

Fortunately, the Kendal and sis knew exactly what to do in the emergency situation. People wrote that as soon as Jenner nosed out that they were stuck, the social media queen got out her phone and started Snapchatting. USA Today wrote that using social media meant that “at least they had good company” with all the Jenner followers glued to their phones watching.
“Nothing like Snapchatting through a crisis, right Kendall and Kylie Jenner?”
How much Kylie Jenner is worth to her fans was obvious from all the comments she got. Twitter blew up with tweets about the experience. One person said they’d pass out if they ever got stuck like that.
Omg I would of past out if I ever got stuck in a elevator! @KylieJenner good thing you weren't alone that would of been scary ????

Another tweeter thought it was scary too, but pointed out that the firemen who rescued Kylie, Kendall, and the others were cute.

Someone must have also remembered to call the fire department, because their ordeal didn’t last nearly as long as the girls thought it might. Even though it felt like a long time, the whole elevator adventure only lasted 20 minutes. That’s not even enough time to do each other’s hair, or check out Jenner’s hair extensions. It was more than enough time for Kylie and Kendall to start getting scared as they realized that they were actually stuck.
“We’re actually stuck in an elevator in real life.”
As the drama unfolded, Kendall admitted that she “never thought this would actually happen” even though it’s something she’d imagined.
“I’m genuinely so terrified…”
As the minutes ticked by without help arriving, everyone in the elevator “started to get tense.” Baldwin told the camera that she thought she was dying. “This is crazy. I’m dying,” Baldwin said. Kylie’s hair extensions looked as good as ever, but we have to wonder if she worried they’d get caught in the door or worse. Fox News wrote that Kendall had some food supplies with her to keep them going during the “traumatic ordeal,” but instead of sharing with the others, Kendall sneakily ate everything she had! That’s not as bad as it sounds. The only piece of sustenance Jenner had with her was a Nature Valley granola bar. Kylie wasn’t impressed.
“So the only food, we don’t know how long we’re going to be here, but all the f**king food, you ate it all.”
Kylie and Kendall’s Snapchat timestamps give a better picture of exactly how long the ordeal lasted, although for the girls waiting to be rescued, it’s no wonder their imaginations added some extensions. Snapchat shows that the entire experience only lasted about 20 minutes, and from the time the FDNY arrived to the time the “ladies were rescued,” only about four minutes passed.
Some people watching Kylie and Kendall noticed that the younger Jenner sister looks way different now than she used to. The rumor started flying around again that Kylie has had a nose job.
I don't even recognize Kylie anymore did she get a nose job

The Jenners may have been shaken up by their adventure, but they weren’t too upset to notice the “cute” firemen, and they happily posed “with their heroes for a group pic” after the firemen did their job.

Later on, Kylie and Tyga “hit the town” and Kendall’s little sis showed off the giant rock on her finger that she says is “a promise ring.”
