    Turns Out Chrissy Teigen Knows Hilariously Little About John Legend's Career

    Seriously, this is spectacular.

    We all know that Chrissy Teigen is an expert at roasting the hell out of her husband John Legend.

    She's truly exceptional at it.

    So it's kind of unsurprising really that she spent an entire appearance on The Ellen Show roasting the shit out of him.

    Things began when Chrissy told this story about John vetoing the name "John Jr" for their baby boy who is due in June.

    She explained: "People keep saying we should do the John Jr thing, but John and his ego. He was like, 'I don't want him to feel he has to live up to that.' And I was like, 'Wow, you're a jerk. What a jerk. Like, oh I'm sorry, heaven forbid he do what you do, it's so incredible."

    Then Ellen went on to mention John's Oscar win for the movie Selma, but Chrissy pointed out that she hadn't actually seen the movie.

    Explaining why, Chrissy said: "Listen, when I see a movie, I like to remove myself from reality. And my movie tastes lean much more towards Bride Wars and Road Trip โ€“ you know, the rom coms. And this was a little heavy for me."

    As if that wasn't enough, Ellen decided to challenge Chrissy to a game entitled: "You Don't Know Jack About John," to test her knowledge about him. And let's just say, Chrissy didn't fare that well.

    Things got off to a bad start when Chrissy couldn't remember the answer to this pretty basic question about La La Land.

    The second question about John's first Grammy nomination didn't go any better.

    In fact, Chrissy really knew she was in trouble.

    And eventually Ellen had to give her a hint.

    But when it came to the third question, Chrissy was so clueless that Ellen didn't even bother giving her a hint and just moved on.

    For question four, Ellen asked: "John performs on the soundtrack of which 50 Shades of Grey sequel?" To which Chrissy had this response.

    "Did you not know that he did?!" Ellen asked, before Chrissy gave her explanation.

    She said: "No, this is a big fight we always have where he doesn't tell me about things he's doing and producing. We went to Sundance [film festival] and he was like, "Oh, we're showing my movie" and I was like, "Your movie?! What are you talking about?!"

    Before adding this.

    At which point, Ellen lost it.

    Luckily, however, Chrissy did get a few questions right.

    She managed to remember that John and Ariana Grande collaborated on a duet from Beauty and the Beast, that his middle name is Roger and that the A Capella group he was part of in college was called The Counterparts.
