Gigi Hadid says she doesn't do tomatoes as she tucks into burger on Tonight Show

    She’s a beautiful international supermodel but Gigi Hadid recoils from healthy fruit inside her beef burgers.

    The runway star is a self-confessed burger lover who lives by the motto: ‘Eat clean to stay fit, eat a burger to stay sane’.

    Talking on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Monday Hadid described her love of the calorie-laden meal.

    ‘I live by that religiously in my life,’ she laughed on the talk show.

    Hadid, the daughter of Real Housewife Yolanda Hadid, claims she ate a different burger every week for a year, when she first moved to New York City.

    ‘The best is JG Melon’s, Uptown,’ alleged the lithe 21-year-old, who was wearing a monochrome corset and skintight suit trousers.

    ‘It’s so simple, they don’t try too hard… I had it for dinner last night,’ she recalled, as Fallon, 41, brought out two beef patties for them to devour on the stage.

    ‘So I didn’t actually drink on my 21st birthday,’ she said, while noting that she went to Las Vegas a week afterwards, to indulge with her beau – One Direction singer Zayn Malik, 23.

    ‘My boyfriend taught me how to play poker the night before we went to Vegas so I won $400… on a $15 poker table, I thought that was pretty good,’ she beamed.

    Gigi was ‘p***ed’ when she and Samberg lost the word game.

    ‘I’m so competitive I didn’t know if I was even going to come to the interview afterwards…I’m p***ed,’ she joked.

    ‘My adrenaline is running so high right now,’ she said, before insisting that the verdict be changed so she could be victorious. ‘We won that!’ She insisted.

    Samberg, 37, teamed with Fallon for a humorous track ‘I’m On a Boat’ which was accompanied by plenty of kazoos and toy xylophones.
