9. How She was Discovered
Chrissy Teigen was discovered when she was 18-years-old. She was working at a California surf shop at the time and had never, ever dreamed of starting a career as a model. “I always wanted to be a teacher or wanted to do something with food. But modeling, I just never thought I could do it myself really ever. I still have trouble calling myself a model. I just never thought I was tall enough or skinny enough. [When I was starting] it was the time of the very thin, waif-y runway models. So I knew I couldn’t do that,” she said in an interview with The Daily Beast.
