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 it after trying a new burger every week during her first year living in the city.
Taking a bite, the model went on to explain she lives by the motto of “Eat clean to stay fit — eat a burger to stay sane.” She also added that she keeps it simple without a lot of filler, proclaiming “I don’t do tomatoes.”
She also told Fallon she spent her 21st birthday in Vegas, where she celebrated another win: $400 on a $15 blackjack table (Hadid’s boyfriend Zayn Malik taught her how to play the night before her trip).
Hadid and Fallon then joined Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg and Washington Nationals’ right fielder Bryce Harper for a game of Catchphrase. Sadly, they came up short. “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!”
