'Worst Cooks in America' Season 18 saw fans loving the disaster happening in the kitchen while talking about how to settle the ultimate pineapple debate. 

Alton Brown and Chef Anne Burrell were back, with hopes of not having the kitchen getting burned down by the worst cooks who are vying to be the best among the worst.

This week, we were taken to the world of salads for the skill drill challenge and diners for the main dish challenge. For the skill drill challenge, the contestants had to give their own twist to the salads that their mentors taught them to prepare.

Chef Anne taught the red team to prepare a mozzarella salad with broccoli rabe pesto and a red wine vinaigrette. For the blue team, Alton showed them how to make his favorite butter lettuce salad with oranges, dried cherries, avocado, prunes and mozzarella.



 

While Alton didn't want them to emulate his favorite salad, Leo had plans of his own, when he decided to add pineapple to his salad. The second Alton noticed that Leo was going to add pineapple to his salad, he said that nothing scared him more than pineapple salad hell. He even called pineapple the "death fruit". 

Despite Alton's warning, Leo continued to add pineapple in his salad, which left fans shocked, and at the same time, they tried to settle the long-running debate if pineapple did belong in salads.

Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote, "#WorstCooks Leo don't use pineapple. Alton is trying to help you..take the hint..."  Another said, "#WorstCooks wtf 'deathfruit' is a WAY better name than pineapple ima start callin it that now."



 

"Pineapple is a death sentence..... #WorstCooks," shared a fan while another wrote, "Pineapple is gross. It doesn't belong anywhere."
