"Definitely not a good cutter, so don’t zoom in on me”, she can be heard requesting the crew.
Summer’s here, and we are busy relishing all the summer delights, like mangoes, cucumbers, watermelons et al. Model and entrepreneur Kendall Jenner too wished to use a cucumber lying in her fridge to make herself a quick snack, however, things apparently started to go downhill when the camera caught her struggle to cut the cucumber. The clip that is going viral on the internet is from the hit TV show ‘The Kardashians’. The Kardashians and Jenners are incredibly popular among fans, but their slightest goof-ups also become the talk of the town, almost as instantly.
In this viral clip, Kendall can be heard saying, “I’m making it myself. I’m just gonna chop up some cucumber. It’s pretty easy.” To encourage her daughter, Kris replies, “You go girl.”
When she sees Kendall struggling, she asks her to “Be careful”, at which point Kendall is gliding her knife up and down the cucumber in a rather awkward manner. “Don’t cucumber have seeds”, she remarks.
While the camera is still on her, she gets a little conscious, “definitely not a good cutter, so don’t zoom in on me”, she requests the crew.
“Hey chef do you wanna cut this up for her”, says a concerned Kris.
“I’ll do it, I will be fine.” Kendall assures.
“The way Kendall Jenner cut that cucumber will haunt me”, remarked a user on watching the video clip.
“I wonder how she would cut an onion ?”, wrote another.
“Her mom either doesn’t know how either or sitting there thinking WTF did I do wrong? I really can’t tell”, another user commented.
The flak has probably also got to do with the fact that cucumber is one of the easiest vegetables to handle in the kitchen. You just need to wash it, slice it and tuck it in. Peeling is also optional.
Did you know cucumber is also one of the healthiest, low carb veggies around, More than 90 percent of cucumber is just water, making it an incredibly low cal food with a plethora of nutrients and minerals such as copper, phosphorous, potassium, magnesium.
