Kim Kardashian Hints at Who Her Favorite 'SNL' Star Is amid Pete Davidson Romance: 'You Know Who It Is'

"What a setup," Kim Kardashian joked when she was asked about her favorite Saturday Night Live cast member

Kim Kardashian is playing coy about her romance with Pete Davidson.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians alum, 41, stopped short of sharing praise for Davidson when she was asked to name her favorite Saturday Night Live cast member on Thursday's episode of the Honestly with Bari Weiss podcast.

"What a setup. What a setup, Bari," Kardashian jokingly told the host after a soft chuckle. "You know who it is."

Kardashian was first romantically linked to Davidson in October, when they were spotted holding hands on a rollercoaster at Knott's Scary Farm in Buena Park, California. The outing came shortly after they shared an onscreen kiss for a sketch during her SNL hosting debut on Oct. 9.

"He's exactly what Kim needed after her divorce [from Kanye West] — someone to make her laugh and just have a fun time with," the source added. "The end of her marriage was a very dark time for her and Pete has been the best antidote."

Another source recently told PEOPLE that Davidson "hasn't met her kids yet," adding: "She still loves the attention. They have been getting to know each other quickly. Kim likes him more and more."
