By now, you should be aware that Chrissy Teigen and John Legend (opens in new tab) love nothing more than a pop culture reenactment. Remember their stunning performances in their 2017 recreation (opens in new tab) of The Devil Wears Prada? Or the commitment with which they acted out (opens in new tab)Luigi's Mansion 3 (opens in new tab) last month? Well, the reigning monarchs of Twitter were at it again on Tuesday, this time turning their interpretative gifts to none other than 90 Day Fiancé.
First, some context. A new collection from Teigen's kitchenware line, Cravings by Chrissy Teigen, has just dropped at Macy's; among the new items, a cutting board, complete with phone/tablet holder. You might recall a notorious fight between ill-fated 90 Day Fiancé couple Darcey Silva and Jesse Meester, which developed after Silva instructed Meester on the best way to cut a steak. That went down very badly with Meester:
So how do Chrissy, John, and Cravings by Chrissy Teigen come into this? Well, what better way to advertise a new cutting board than with a dramatic reenactment of a very dramatic cutting board-based moment? "Babe, you have to cut it on a bias. On a slant, so it stays juicy. Down, like a slant!" Teigen tells Legend, who's sawing at a steak. Legend, in response, slams down his knife and fork and storms outside, declaring, "I'm done. This is madness!" Teigen yells after him, "I worked in a restaurant!" Behold:

Teigen and Legend conclude their compelling short film with a moving exchange by the pool. "Hey babe, dinner's ready," Teigen says, to the displeasure of a pensive Legend. Then, the words that, if I were Legend, I'd insist were carved upon my gravestone: "Steak was supposed to be my thing." Breathtaking. Oscars all round.
