Gigi Hadid made her first appearance on The Tonight Show Monday night, and in case you think supermodels don’t eat, the 21-year-old celebrated her recent birthday by chowing down on a burger with host Jimmy Fallon.

Fallon, 41, surprised Hadid with a meal from J.G. Melon – her favorite burger place in New York City. The young beauty said she discovered the burger after trying a new burger every week during her first year living in the city.

Biting into the burger, the model went on to explain she lives by the motto of “Eat clean to stay fit – eat a burger to stay sane.”

Hadid told Fallon she celebrated her 21st birthday in Vegas, winning $400 on a $15 blackjack table. Hadid’s boyfriend Zayn taught her how to play the night before her trip.

Hadid and Fallon joined Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg and Washington Nationals’ right fielder Bryce Harper for a game of cathphrase.

Teamed with Fallon, Hadid lost the game to Fallon and Harper, who played strategically, windowing down the clock between guesses.

“I’m so competitive, I didn’t know if I’d come to this interview” Hadid explained in a segment after the game. “My adrenaline is running so high!”
