Chrissy Teigen’s replacement in Never Have I Ever season 2 has finally been revealed as model Gigi Hadid stepped in the narrator cameo role.
As fans of the Netflix show will know, the comedy series features iconic tennis star John McEnroe as the surprising voiceover explaining the wild antics of Indian-American teenager Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) and her pals.
Season one also saw Devi’s rival turned love interest Ben (Jaren Lewison) enjoy a standalone episode that featured a voiceover from funnyman Andy Samberg.
However, season two allowed Devi’s main crush Paxton to get his chance to shine in a solo episode with Hadid as his narrator.
Chrissy had originally been snapped up to voice the Paxton-centric episode but chose to leave the show in June amid her bullying scandal.
The mother-of-two came under fire in May after Courtney Stodden claimed that Teigen had repeatedly harassed them online.
Teigen would later apologize to Stodden in a series of tweets before further examples of her trolling behavior were revealed online by other stars.
The former Lip Sync Battle host had already recorded her narration before it was revealed she would be recast, and Netflix kept the new narrator secret until the show’s release.

Now viewers can listen to Hadid in the second season’s third episode, as she discusses Paxton’s struggles, from a broken heart to how difficult life can be for someone with a perfectly symmetrical face.
She states: ‘This is Paxton-Hall Yoshida. He’s a 16-year-old boy from Sherman Oaks, California. I am model, designer, activist, and a former 16-year-old from California, Gigi Hadid.
‘You may be asking yourself, “Why is Old Gigers taking time out of her busy skedge to narrate the story of a 16-year-old boy. Believe it or not, I relate to this kid. We’re both constantly underestimated because people only see us as sex symbols.’
Viewers should also pay close attention because another familiar voice tpops up during the Paxton-centric episode.
Season two of Never Have I Ever continues to follow Devi as she faces the pressures of high school drama and home life.
Never Have I Ever is available to stream on Netflix.
