5 Things You Didn’t Know About Gigi Hadid


Our gracious—and not to mention gorgeous—host Gigi Hadid has strutted on runways, appeared on endless magazine covers, and is followed by paps everywhere she goes. Her life may be sprawled out on social media and in the tabloids, but there’s still a few things we were surprised to learn about this It Girl.

Check out five things about Gigi you may not have known and catch her hosting the 2016 iHeartRadio MMVAs on Sunday, June 19.

1.  She’s always been athletic.

Currently, she boxes to stay in shape, but in the past was a competitive horse rider and volleyball player. Her high school volleyball club qualified for the Junior Olympics.


2. She studied criminal psychology.

She took courses at The New School in New York, not because she needed the degree, as she said on Live! With Kelly And Michael, but because she loves being in the classroom environment. She hopes to graduate by age 23.


3. Even as one of the world’s top models, she still gets stage fright.

“I’m always nervous for every show I walk,” she told Status Magazine.

4. Gigi’s currently on the hunt for the best cheeseburger in New York.

In her first year in NYC, she ate a different burger every week. Her current favourite burger is from J.G. Melon’s.


5. She had a brief stint as a YouTuber between 2012 and 2013.

You can still watch a few of her Q&A videos where she answers fans’ questions. We’ll save her a spot in the Much Digital Studios.
