Never Have I Ever’s Paxton got another supermodel narrator. Gigi Hadid has replaced Chrissy Teigen, who was to take on the role of the character’s inner voice for season 2 of the Netflix hit. Teigen departed the guest voiceover role following her online bullying controversy.
Season 2 of the Mindy Kaling-executive produced show premiered on Thursday, and follows Indian American teenager Devi (Maitreyi Ramakrishnan) as she continues to deal with the everyday pressures of high school and drama at home, while also navigating new romantic relationships.
The show is no stranger to celebrity narrators. John McEnroe is Devi’s inner voice while Andy Samberg is the character Ben’s (played by Jaren Lewison) voice. Hadid is a perfect match for Paxton (played by Darren Barnet), given the character’s attractiveness.
“When scientists declare your face to be perfectly symmetrical, that’s all everyone thinks you have to offer the world,” Hadid says in the episode. “But, we’ve got brains too, and feelings and — Paxton, dude, put a shirt on! I’m trying to make a point here.”
Hadid tweeted about being part of the series, writing that she “had the best time.”
