    Chrissy Teigen Shared A Hilarious Throwback Of Her Modeling On "Deal Or No Deal," So I Found The Original Episode

    "I was gently replaced."

    Recently, Chrissy Teigen shared an amazing throwback pic of a modeling gig I'm pretty sure none of us knew about. Was it Vogue? A John Legend music video? A Fast and Furious cameo?

    Nope, it was on the game show Deal or No Deal.

    Alas, Chrissy's run on the show was short-lived as she was "gently replaced," a phrase that I hope catches on.

    Chrissy even gave a shoutout to a fellow famous celeb and former Deal or No Deal model, Meghan Markle (!!!), with the comment, "I love my husband Harry please respect us."

    Lest you need the photo evidence of Meghan's appearance, here it is:

    The joy! The jubilation!

    Meghan's appearances were pretty easy to find, but I was intrigued by Chrissy's modeling stint on the show. I don't know what it was, but something about that image hooked me. I needed more. So naturally, I did what any normal person would do and looked through two seasons of Deal or No Deal to find at least one example of Chrissy.

    I was beginning to become one of the Deal or No Deal deniers when I saw it, plain as day: Season 2, Episode 52.

    Alas, Meghan Markle was not in this episode.

    Much like all the great detectives of our time, I therefore knew that one of these 26 pixelated women must be Chrissy:

    I think we can all agree that this is a very productive way to spend one's Sunday afternoon.

    The episode features Dave, who makes bagpipes for a living. I wonder if he knows that he played his pipe a mere few feet away from Mrs. Christine Teigen.

    I was beginning to grow tired from squinting at my screen when I saw it! Number 12!

    Dave selected this number after flexing his muscles many times.

    TBH, I don't know what Chrissy means about her facial expressions because her three seconds of opening that case had me quaking with anticipation.

    But, as we know, twelve was not Dave's lucky number.

    Unless by "lucky" you mean "having your appearance on Deal Or No Deal resurrected after nearly 14 years in connection to a celebrity."

    Believe it folks! Chrissy Teigen was indeed on Deal or No Deal!

    No one believes this happened. I barely do. Circa 13 years ago. My god!
