Chris Colfer (as Kurt Hummel)

Kurt Hummel Character Biography

Kurt's existence at McKinley is rocked when football player Dave Karofsky starts to bully him. Kurt goes to Dalton Academy to spy on their glee club and discovers that their star performer, Blaine, is gay and that the straight members of the choir have a no tolerance policy when it comes to harassment. Blaine encourages Kurt to confront Karofsky, which he does. But Kurt is caught off guard when, in the midst of their dispute, the bully kisses him.

As Kurt's friendship with Blaine continues to grow, so do his tensions with Karofsky, who threatens to kill Kurt, despite the fact that he hasn't outed Dave. Fearing for his safety, Kurt decides to transfer to Dalton Academy.

His life isn't all bad though. In the midst of his Karofsky drama, Kurt's dad, Burt, marries Finn's mom. With the new mash-up nickname "Furt," the two teens set aside their disagreements from the past, and Finn surprises Kurt by dancing with him at the wedding.

Although he doesn't get to step into the spotlight for Dalton's glee club, The Warblers, Kurt's relationship with Blaine continues to evolve. Ultimately, Blaine recommends that he and Kurt duet at regionals and their relationship becomes romantic.
