KENDALL Jenner's fans have a wild theory that she staged the bizarre way she cut a cucumber so she could go viral.
The 26-year-old model left fans bewildered with her strange method of chopping up the vegetable in a recent episode of The Kardashians.
Kendall awkwardly crossed her arms to cut the cucumber, before holding her fingers just millimeters away from the sharp edge of the knife.
A video of the reality star's "painful" technique went viral on social media, with many fans mocking her lack of culinary skills.
However, some fans are now speculating that Kendall deliberately sliced the cucumber badly to draw attention to her tequila brand, 818.
The Hulu star, who launched her drinks company last year, was wearing a brown hoodie with the 818 logo on it in the scene.

A fan wrote on Reddit: "The scene is obviously staged, there’s no way she doesn’t know how to cut a vegetable the correct way.
"The scene was created to go viral to get people talking about the show and Kendall's brand 818, hence why she’s wearing a 818 jumper during the scene."
Another agreed, adding:"Her obvious 818 marketing on the show/social media reminds me of Bethennys skinny girl era on RHONY."
A third posted: "She definitely got people talking, so I could see it!"

While The Kardashians has been gripping viewers with its episodes, it has also drawn accusations of scripted scenes and fake storylines.
Earlier this week, Kendall and Kris were accused of faking a scene to avoid addressing the Astroworld tragedy.
In a recent episode, viewers were confused when Kendall implied that she was missing Kris' birthday party because she was in Miami.
Kris celebrated her 66th birthday on November 5, when Kendall and Kylie were at Astroworld festival to watch Travis Scott perform.
Both sisters shared videos on social media from the event – before the deadly crowd surge that led to 10 people dying and hundreds being injured.
However, on The Kardashians, Kendall made no mention of being Houston, Texas, for the festival.
Instead, she was seen on vacation with her friend Hailey Bieber while Kris was preparing for her birthday party.
After Kris' dinner, Kendall suggested she missed the event because she was in Miami and rang her mom on camera for a catch-up.
“I love these little trips that we do, I’m just sad that I’m missing my mom’s birthday,” Kendall said in a confessional.
“I’ll be back to give her a nice birthday hug in a couple of days."
She then told Kris on the phone, “I was just calling to see how your birthday was,” before listening as Kris filled her in.
This isn't the first time The Kardashians has faced accusations of scripted scenes.
Last month, fans accused Kris of reshooting scenes where she was getting ready for Travis and Kourtney's engagement party.
The moment was presumed to have been filmed in October 2021, since that is when Travis and Kourtney got engaged.
Kris rang Kim and Kylie to tell them that Travis and Kourtney's party was still going ahead.
However, eagle-eyed viewers noticed that their contact names were all listed in 2022 – months after the proposal took place.
