Cravings are real. So when Chrissy Teigen got a hankering for banana bread yesterday but had a total of zero bruised bananas, she looked to her 7.54 million Twitter followers for help…because grocery stores are so passé.

The cooking queen put her thumbs to work and asked the Los Angeles-based Twitersphere to rummage through their fruit baskets and trash cans to provide her with six brown bananas. Hey, she’s a woman who knows what she wants.

In return for the half-dozen brownanasTeigen promised a signed cookbook, a pair of her hubby John Legend’s undies and one of her recently released Becca makeup palettes.

She also felt it necessary to specify that only serious bananaphiles need apply.

Once the Lip Sync Battle host identified a prime candidateshe closed the “banana submissions” and promised to split the finished product with unfruitful applicants.

And, because she’s a lady, she made sure to thank all involved.

But before Teigen sent her assistant over to collect five bananas (yeah, no one came through with six), she went over the banana trade-off safety guidelines.


Turns out Teigen’s mom, Vilailuck, is her assistant. Hey, at least they got the ’nanas.

(It should also be noted that Legend commented on this photo, confirming he was happy to give up a pair of his undies in exchange for the baked goodness of banana bread. Priorities.)

Alas, when Mrs. Legend started whipping up her delicious concoction, she realized she really did need a sixth banana.

A kind gentleman came to the rescue with a single nanner, but Teigen’s mom wasn’t pleased.

In the end, it was all worth it.

Well, this further solidifies our staunch belief that baked goods bring people together. Thanks, Chrissy. Can’t wait for your assistant to deliver us a piece.
