32 Times Chrissy Teigen Made Headlines in Her 32nd Year

Happy 33rd Birthday to the "Mayor of the Internet"

Chrissy Teigen is winning the Internet. Everything she does — whether it’s steaming her vagina, playing with a bug or wearing a headband — becomes some kind of must-read, communal experience that’s shared across the web in celebration of its “realness.” And it’s not just women’s magazines, TMZ and Comments by Celebs documenting her every move in a Meghan Markle-like click baiting manner: CNN, Business Insider and the Wall Street Journal are all using her name to drive page views to their sites.

A comprehensive content analysis of Chrissy Teigen’s social media-driven stories would provide a fascinating look at her impact on the news cycle. Since I don’t exactly have the resources, time or patience to do that, I instead opted to round up 32 headlines in honour of her 32nd lap around the sun. There were hundreds of buzzy (and not so buzzy) stories to work with, which serves as a testament to the power and influence of Chrissy Teigen, a model turned clap back icon “who is also known for her cooking abilities.”
