Blue Origin ticket cost to space revealed as Kim Kardashian’s boyfriend Pete Davidson ‘expected to fly’ soon

PETE DAVIDSON could soon be heading into space on a Blue Origin rocket – here’s how much it costs.

The Saturday Night Live comedian is set to finalize a contract with Blue Origin that will allow him to travel to space, according to a new report from Page Six.

“Pete is excited,” a source close to Davidson told Page Six. “They haven’t signed a contract yet, but it looks like it will happen. Details are being finalized.”

The space travel company, founded in 2000 by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos, has successfully sent three crewed flights into space in the past year.

Blue Origin has not disclosed the price of a ticket to fly on its rocket, named New Shepard, but the company’s sales approached $100 million last year, according to the New York Times.

While it’s unclear how much of that revenue came from ticket sales, Bezos told The Times that the company is doing “very well with private sales.”

In a public auction for a seat on the first Blue Origin flight, Justin Sun, CEO of blockchain platform Tron, ended up paying $28 million for a ticket.

And while Davidson’s ticket to paradise probably isn’t cheap, it will certainly be cheaper than that, according to Engadget.

Bezos has hinted at the price of a single ticket in previous interviews, saying he would likely be in the same ballpark as competitors, such as Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic SpaceShipTwo.

Last August, a ticket to board Branson’s SpaceShipTwo was priced at $450,000 — a nearly double increase from its previous cost of $250,000.

Therefore, it’s likely that Davidson paid a price close to that figure, or perhaps even less considering his friendly nature with Bezos.

It was reported earlier this year that Davidson and his girlfriend Kim Kardashian had dinner with Bezos and his longtime partner Lauren Sanchez and hit it off.

“He got along really well with Jeff when they met,” a source told Page Six.

It’s unclear exactly when Davidson is due to travel to the outer reaches of space, but it should be within a year.
