20 year old top model, Gigi Hadid proved last night on Celebrity Masterchef that she has more than just beauty on her side. While she certainly needs no introduction seeing that she’s not only the fashion scene’s darling, a Victoria’s Secret model, Vogue cover model and girlfriend of former One Direction member (Zayn Malik), she can now add Celebrity Masterchef winner to her list of achievements.
Beating fellow American model, Devon Winsor in the competition and impressing the hard-to-please Gordon Ramsay with her gourmet burger, Gigi went on to say that for the first year that she lived in New York, she tried a different burger every week to find her favourite! Talk about passion for food.
Her delectable gourmet recreation of the popular fast food staple consisted of a beef patty with pickled jalapenos and a spiced crispy onion nest with a side dish of potato crisps beat her competitor’s equally classy dish of squid ink spaghetti with white wine sauce and its superb presentation. Garnering praise from acclaimed British Masterchef, Gordon Ramsay who proclaimed “Gigi your burger is f****** delicious.” after tasting her masterpiece, Gigi can add cooking pro to her resume.
The burger-loving model made an emotional speech about why she decided to participate in the celebrity edition of Masterchef and said she would be supporting The Global Lyme Alliance for Lyme Disease with the 25, 000 dollar prize money. The cause she’s supporting is close to her heart because her mother, sister and brother are all affected by the disease and she says that not enough awareness has been created about it.
Lyme disease is a bacterial infection transmitted by Ixodes ticks, also known as deer ticks and black-legged ticks. The disease affects the brain, nervous system, muscles, joints and the heart.
