    Well, now Gigi has popped up somewhere else: as a narrator in Never Have I Ever Season 2, which just dropped on Netflix — and, on the show, she narrates an episode dedicated to teen heartthrob Paxton Hall-Yoshida (Darren Barnet).

    Now, originally Chrissy Teigen was supposed to narrate Episode 3, but things are a little, um, weird for her right now. She actually left the show in June.

    Anyway, Gigi took over to narrate the episode all about Paxton...

    "This is Paxton Hall-Yoshida. He's a 16-year-old boy from Sherman Oaks, California," Hadid says in the episode. "And I am model, designer, activist, and a former 16-year-old from California, Gigi Hadid."

    "You may be asking yourself," she continued, "'Why is old Gigers taking time out of her busy skedge to narrate the story of a 16-year-old boy?'"

    "Believe it or not—I relate to this kid. We're both constantly underestimated because people only see us as sex symbols."

    "When scientists declare your face to be perfectly symmetrical, that's all everyone thinks you have to offer the world," she added. "But we've got brains, too, and feelings and — Paxton, dude, put a shirt on. I'm trying to make a point here."

    We do not blame her for getting distracted.

    "Anyway, we have so much more going on inside. At least that's true for me. We'll see what happens with Paxton."
