Plot Twist: Chrissy Teigen And Meghan Markle Used To Work Together Back In 2007

Date February 23, 2018

Chrissy Teigen may be happily married, but if life had gone down a slightly different path, she would be the one tying the knot with Prince Harry this year, not Meghan Markle.

Or so she says, anyway.

During an appearance on The Ellen Show, Teigen was asked about the time she crossed paths with the royal bride-to-be during their time as ‘briefcase models’ on Deal or No Deal. The Lip Sync Battle host revealed that she was previously a 'briefcase girl' on the American version of Deal or No Deal alongside Prince Harry's fiancee back in 2007.


In the US version of the show, the cases would be opened up by a group of models, and Chrissy joked that she could have been the one who was set up on a blind date with the prince. Speaking on the Ellen DeGeneres Show, she said: "I tell John all the time, 'That could be me. I could be Princess Harry.'"

Deal or No Deal

According to Teigen, the two crossed paths while filming about 12 years ago, when neither Teigen nor Markle was a famous face.


When host Ellen DeGeneres mentioned this, the 32-year-old model who is expecting her second child with singer John Legend this year joked that she hadn’t realized becoming a royal was an option for the briefcase models.


Markle starred in 34 episodes between 2006 and 2007, while Teigen made eight appearances between 2007 and 2008.

I think she came in the second season or something, I did it from pilot season to the first season, and then I got demoted because I couldn’t walk down the stairs. I got fired or something. It was a very blurry time in my life,Teigen went on to say but confirmed she did remember the soon-to-be Princess. I remember her being just very quiet and sweet. Just really kind, and I don't say that about anybody.
