Chrissy Teigen Is a Real Small Claims Court Judge in Quibi Reality Show
Model, cook, entrepreneur, and Twitter master Chrissy Teigen seems to never be short on opinions. If you’re familiar with her social media feeds, then you know she’s full of jokes, advice, and ideas. When she dispenses the latter, it’s usually with her special brand of humor and snark.
It’s part of the reason fans love her. Count on Teigen to share her two cents whether it’s about a personal situation, beauty, food, family, or something going on in the world. Now, she’s dropping some judgmental wisdom in a Quibi new series, Chrissy’s Court.
What is ‘Chrissy’s Court’ about?
As mentioned, Teigen is very active – and interactive – on social media to the point where she’s recognized as a queen of sorts on Twitter and Instagram. Entertaining, outspoken, and honest, Teigen is striking a pose in a judge’s robe this time, and it’s now just for show.
Chrissy’s Court puts a gavel in her hand a docket of cases before her bench, as the TV host is a small claims court judge for the Quibi series. This isn’t a farce, and according to the streaming platform, even Teigen’s mom is involved. And no, John Legend isn’t the bailiff.
According to the show’s description, it gets real:
“Real people. Real cases. And real, legally binding decisions. If you thought Chrissy Teigen couldn’t become an actual courtroom judge, you’ve been overruled.
In each episode of Chrissy’s Court, Chrissy Teigen reigns supreme as the ‘judge’ over one small claims case. Chrissy’s mom turned ‘bailiff,’ Pepper Thai, maintains order in the courtroom.”
Teigen is busy promoting ‘Chrissy’s Court’ on social media
On March 25, she announced she’s open to settling “your petty disputes” on Twitter. Fans are flooding Teigen with hilarious cases in the comments, seeking her intervention for everything from pesky mother-in-laws to inconsiderate neighbors to icky food choices.
One Twitter user wrote, “My husband puts empty food containers back in the fridge and pantry. In addition, when I buy a new food item to replace one which is almost empty, he opens the new one without finishing the one already open and in progress. I demand justice #chrissyscourt”
Another user complained about a roommate dragging her into her FaceTime calls. Teigen answered, “I hate when people do this. Jail time.”
The half-silly, half-serious verdicts are a smart way to promote the short-form show which is set to premiere when Quibi launches on April 6.
