Chrissy Teigen may have been crying at the Golden Globes on Sunday, but fans will see a tougher Teigen Tuesday when she guest stars on The Mindy Project.

These days, Mindy Lahiri finds herself on the opposite side of the country completing a fellowship at Stanford University, where she runs into Alex Eakin, the man who took her virginity (and she took his), played by Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Lee Pace. When Mindy runs into her old flame, Teigen’s character Grace is hanging on Eakin’s arm, leading us to believe that Grace is Eakin’s latest love interest.

The encounter with her now-billionaire ex-lover leaves Mindy questioning her current relationship with Danny Castellano back in New York, and based on Kaling’s real-life Twitter conversation with Teigen last month, it also results in a heated fight.

The Mindy Project airs Tuesday nights at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
