Chrissy Teigen Admitted She Would Taste Human Meat ‘If the Person Okayed It’

Chrissy Teigen is beloved for so many reasons, but one thing fans especially love about her is how she’s never afraid to speak her mind. Whether it’s voicing an unpopular opinion, coming up with pithy comebacks for critics on social media, or battling other celebrities or world leaders, she’s not afraid to say what she’s thinking.

But even the most hardcore Teigen fans are scratching their heads at her latest admission, which is a bit far afield of what anyone expected her to say. Much to everyone’s surprise, Teigen is not opposed to a bit of cannibalism under the right conditions.

Chrissy Teigen is a culinary enthusiast

While she’s not technically a celebrity chef, Chrissy Teigen is well-known for her forays in the kitchen. The 34-year-old mother of two loves sharing her favorite recipes and even released a cookbook called Cravings: Recipes for All the Food You Want to Eat. She’s a self-professed food lover who cherishes time spent in the kitchen.

But some of Teigen’s cravings are a bit unusual. Fans were horrified to find that the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model has an extremely adventurous palate.

Teigen admitted she would taste human flesh on one condition

Even the most exotic dishes don’t contain person meat. But that wouldn’t stop Teigen from trying a little taste if the opportunity arose.

On an episode of David Chang’s Netflix series Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner, she and the show host got into a conversation about the craziest foods they would ever try. Chang said there were certain weird ingredients he’d be down with tasting, like Cod sperm at a fancy restaurant. But Teigen’s response was especially shocking.

“There’s actually nothing I wouldn’t eat or wouldn’t drink or wouldn’t try,” Teigen said. “If the person okayed it, I would eat a human.”

Chang, who was obviously not expecting that answer, reacted in surprise. “If you were at a very fancy restaurant and they were like — a tiny piece of human meat, you wouldn’t try a tiny bite?” Teigen pressed him. Chang replied firmly, “No, absolutely not.” 

“Is that terrible?” Teigen asked while giggling.

She eats other controversial foods, too

While her willingness to eat human is the weirdest thing Teigen ever admitted to, it’s not the first time fans questioned her food choices.

As she told Delish, “I had an ex-boyfriend of mine whose father would shred up cheddar cheese and fold it into guacamole, and I was like, ‘oh my god, I cannot have guacamole any other way now.’ I posted about it on my blog a few years ago, and people were like, ‘this is a travesty; my grandmother is rolling in her grave thinking about your guacamole!'”

Her fans were understandably appalled by this admission, but Teigen refused to apologize or change her stance. “Everyone make my damn guac it’s bommmmmb because CHEESE,” she promised.

Teigen’s fans also called her out for indulging in less-than-healthy fare while pregnant. When she was expecting baby Luna, Teigen shared that she enjoyed eating Cap’n Crunch cereal mixed with Fruity Pebbles. Fans immediately pointed out how unhealthy the sugary, artificially flavored and colored cereals were, but Teigen didn’t care.

“Yes I am living off dyed food. Tuna too!! Gonna try to dye my tuna actually. Then have an icy, dyed vodka soda and that’s just lunch,” she retorted.

Hey, at least she wasn’t eating people.
