It has got to be nice being Chrissy Teigen. I mean, think about it: she is paid to essentially work out and look hot (which is a very roundabout way to say “model”) and she is married to John Legend.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that she is a Halfie, too (Teigen is an American with a Norweigan and Thai heritage). As a fellow Halfie let me tell you: representation is important, guys.
However, you’re not here to hear me spew about ethnic representation in the media, unfortunately. You’re here to learn how much the angel from above Chrissy Teigen is worth.
As of 2017, Chrissy Teigen is worth $2 million dollars.
Don’t feel like that’s a lot? When was the last time you were paid money to look hot? That’s right… never.
Let’s take a trip down Teigen Memory Road and learn about how she made those riches.
2000 – 2004
Everyone has to start somewhere. After moving around the United States several times, Chrissy Teigen and her family settled down in Huntington Beach, California. When she was a teenager, she was discovered by a photographer while she was working in a surf shop.
In 2004, she began her professional modeling career as an IGN Babe.

During her appearance at the 59th Grammy Awards, she and John legend put on a fun performance for onlookers. While Teigen put on some sexy moves for her husband, Legend responded playfully. We’re no strangers to the happy couple, as evidenced by all of us loving the adorable drunk Snapchats Teigen posted.
