Cape Town - Chrissy Teigen just posted a nostalgic throwback photo of her as a high school cheerleader and we’re obsessed!

The model and cookbook author opened up about her time as a high school cheerleader and shared a snap of herself in full cheer uniform, pigtails and pompoms, Huffington Post reports.

According to the star, she felt like taking a stroll down memory lane after watching Netflix’s Cheer – a documentary series that profiles the cheerleaders at Navarro College in Texas in the US, People reports.

"Watching Cheer on Netflix got me reminiscing about how I sucked at cheerleading almost as much as I sucked at doing my brows," she captioned the picture.

"Truly no idea how I made this team."

The nostalgic shot got other celebrities reminiscing about their cheerleading days.

"I only signed up to be a cheerleader for the snacks at practices," model Tess Holliday shared in the comments.


"At least our eyebrows have come a longggg way and are the real MVPs here."

"Soooooo who was the team braider??" actress Gabrielle Union asked in the comments, referring to the braids worn by one of Chrissy’s classmates.

Though her cheerleading days are over, the 34-year-old is still very much looking forward to the upcoming Super Bowl football championship.
