Chrissy Teigen is gorgeous. That much is obvious. What it took Twitter to showcase is that Chrissy—model, mother, and wife of Oscar-winning singer-songwriter John Legend—is also hysterical. Her grasp of pop culture and keen eye for social interactions are comedy gold. A few years ago she tweeted, “I always have a note in my pocket that says “john did it” just I case I’m murdered because I don’t want him to remarry #truelove #tips.”
When she was pregnant with her daughter Luna, she wrote, “I need a bikini wax but I feel like I should wait for my epidural because THAT IS GENIUS???” On the way home from the hospital after giving birth, she said, “no one told me I would be coming home in diapers too.”
I’ve always thought the secret to a happy couple was laughter, so when I needed a friend for a speed-dating themed episode of Derek Does Stuff With A Friend, I immediately thought of Chrissy. Here’s the premise: I hid Chrissy in a back room of a restaurant that served as a sort of Cupid’s mission control. It was hooked up to monitors watching a couple on a date, including the one who is wearing a tiny, unnoticeable earpiece and listening to Chrissy give her own brand of original, non-traditional dating tips.
After a few hours of her advising singles at Au Fudge, a new restaurant in West Hollywood, it was clear she wasn’t a good choice. She was great! Not only did she have me nearly rolling on the floor with some of her suggestions for pick-up lines (An example: “I hate babies, don’t you?”), I think more than one of these pairings heard wedding bells. We did this three times: For a man seeking a woman, a woman seeking a man, and finally a man seeking a man. First up: Danny. Watch the video below!
