Chrissy Teigen has proved countless times over that she’s a social media genius.
She’s become known for her quick-witted remarks, pointed clap backs, and endless roasts of her husband, John Legend. But Teigen doesn’t just generate amusing content—she creates priceless viral moments and is an amazing source of meme material.
Now more than ever, we appreciate Teigen’s bounty of humorous larks bestowed upon us, and as we bide our time waiting for more, let us reflect on her best viral moments thus far.
1. When she attempted to move out of frame at the 2018 Emmys
During the 2018 Emmys, Teigen attempted to duck out of frame after realizing a camera was filming her and and Legend following a terrible joke in the opening monologue.
But Teigen was still very much in frame, and her duck resulted in the birth of a beautiful meme.
2. When Chrissy found this perfect meme of her and John Legend
Teigen has long compared Legend to the cartoon aardvark Arthur from the animated series Arthur, but in January she found herself compared to a leggy character that appeared in an episode of Family Guy.
“Omggggggahhhh ‘legs go all the way up’ girl nooooooo,” Teigen captioned a meme she found on Instagram of her and Legend.
The long-legged character seen in the meme, is from this Family Guy scene:
3. Crying while eating pie
Who among us has not sobbed while eating pastry? Teigen’s Instagram post of herself pretending to weep into a pie was among one of her most relatable posts, and will forever go down in history as the most epic of moods.
4. Her quest for banana bread ingredients
In September of 2017, Teigen turned to Twitter to find extra ripe bananas so she could make banana bread. She even offered up one of her Becca-brand contouring palettes, a signed copy of her cookbook, and a pair of her husband’s underwear—which he approved of—in an effort to secure some well-aged bananas.
if u have 6 BROWN bananas in the LA area, I will send my assistant to your home with a signed cookbook, John’s underwear and a Becca palette

Luckily, people online responded to her plea, and Teigen scored herself some brown bananas, sending her assistant (aka her mom) out to make the exchange of goods.
But even after scoring her first batch of bananas she was forced to send her “assistant” out once more for two additional ripe bananas sourced from Twitter.
Eventually as a thank you to everyone who followed her on her banana bread journey, Teigen released her banana bread recipe, which honestly looks very delicious.
5. Every time she has (lovingly) roasted John Legend
If there’s something you can count on Teigen for it’s her roasts of her husband, you know the EGOT-winner and mega star, John Legend.
Teigen has roasted Legend’s old album covers, his incessant charger stealing, and his use of a selfie stick, among other things. Here are some of her best roasts of Legend:
yes @johnlegend I buy and leave all the phone chargers all around the house just so you can unplug them all and take them to work with you. all of them! I love that you love chargers! they’re all for you! I just love you that’s why I buy them. because you love them!

6. The famous “cry face”
After John Legend won a Golden Globe in 2015 for Best Original Song, Teigen couldn’t help but tear up while he delivered his acceptance speech. The moment instantly went viral, and will forever live on as a great reaction meme.
Teigen posted a picture of her and Legend later that evening reenacting her crying face as well as a couple of tweets defending her goofy crying face.
Sorry I don’t practice my cry face okay

7. The cringe face
Just a year after Teigen’s crying face went viral, she blessed the internet with another ultra relatable expression at the 2016 Oscars: her cringe face.
Teigen explained in a tweet that the face she made was in response to staunch Republican actress Stacey Dash’s cameo at the Oscars.
I was making the face from the Stacey Dash moment ahhhhhhh not Sarah!

8. Her run in with a “nice” bug that was actually a horrifying wasp
Back in July, Teigen befriended what she believed to be a “nice” bug. She shared a video of herself with the bug crawling up her arm on Twitter, and asked people to help her identify it. And identify it they did.
Turns out the bug Teigen was playing with was a tarantula wasp, known for its powerful and intense stings. But, even after Teigen learned that she had been playing with a somewhat dangerous bug, she remained (somewhat) unconvinced that it was as bad as people claimed.
Naturally, people took issue with this and urged her to distance herself from the bug.
But don’t worry, Teigen and her daughter were unharmed by the bug. Which maybe goes to show that it was a nice bug after all.
9. When she was blocked by Donald Trump on Twitter
Teigen has never been shy about expressing her hatred of President Donald Trump, and after sending a number of tweets directed at Trump, he eventually just blocked her on Twitter.
But in an unexpected turn of events, a judge ruled that the president could not legally block anyone on Twitter in March, including his critics, such as Teigen. She seemed pleased when she shared the news on Instagram.
Never change, Chrissy.
