Although the leggy legend kept mum about that gossip, she did reveal her strange and surprising talent that — we admit — we never saw coming.
"I can walk on raw eggs," the mother of four (who uses her sons' afros for art projects) matter-of-factly tells YourTango. "I do that on Germany's Next Top Model. I have my girls do that so they learn to walk on the front of their foot. We tape raw eggs on the back of their foot, and they have to walk like that … so you lift up your butt, that's how you walk. It's basically like a high heel, but instead of a high heel, it's a raw egg."
It's clear global audiences love seeing Klum play host (Project Runway) and judge (America's Got Talent), but they may not realize her own reality TV roots go way back, all the way back to 1992 when she was just a contestant trying to make it big.
"I did win a competition in Germany — you know, that's how I started; it was a modeling competition, so I kind of went through it a little bit. It was a long time ago, so it wasn't as big, but it was on TV, and it went on for six months actually, where they had three girls every week, and how America can choose America's Got Talent, Germany voted for me, and that's how I became a model."
Excellent choice, Germany. While it's doubtful we'll see Klum take the America's Got Talent stage to prove her egg walking skills when the show returns next summer, let's cross our fingers that producers can talk her into showcasing another natural ability.
"I would cook sauerkraut soup while yodeling," Klum replies when asked how she'd impress co-judges Melanie Brown, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel if she was to enter the competition. "I wouldn't make it to the next round."
