"I can't imagine why I'm leaving my nice house to sleep in a tent for three weeks and ride on horses."
Long before she was a star of the most famous reality show of all time — she was on "Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive."
Kourtney Kardashian's first ever reality TV appearance has resurfaced 14 years on, on a show which predates "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" by a full two years.
A clip from the blatant "Simple Life" rip-off was shared by the official "KUWTK" Instagram account on Tuesday morning, showing the (still) fresh-faced and childless 26-year-old before she even began dating Scott Disick.

"Howdy, dolls. Please enjoy Kourt's first reality TV appearance on Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive," the show teased.
"I do not spend any time outdoors, I just despise the outdoors," Kourt confesses in the clip. "I can't imagine why I'm leaving my nice house to sleep in a tent for three weeks and ride on horses."
But one cowboy hat later, the reality-queen-in-the-making proved to be a quick adapter.
"I don't know, I just think you have to look cute when riding, or no matter what you're doing, even when we're hanging out by the campfire," she later adds in the show's pilot. "Gotta have... a cute outfit is key."
"Filthy Rich: Cattle Drive" came from the "throw as many concepts as possible at the wall and see what sticks" era of reality TV; it didn't last, and only aired eight episodes on E! in 2005.
As well as Kourtney — billed as "daughter of attorney Robert Kardashian" — the cast also featured nine other affluent offspring.
They included George Foreman III, "Incredible Hulk" Lou Ferrigno's daughter Shanna, singer Pat Benatar's daughter Haley Giraldo, Mexican actor Anthony Quinn's son Alex, and actor Robert Blake's son Noah, as well as former Yahoo! CEO Terry Semel's daughter and fellow alternative spelling fan Courtenay.
While Kourtney might have been bummed when the show ended never to return in October of 2005, exactly two years later E! introduced a new show based around her family — which recently headed into its 16th season.
