Where's John Legend on NYE? Chrissy Teigen Auditioned a Substitute Midnight Kiss on NBC

For any dame finding the perfect dude for a midnight kiss is a lot of pressure. If you're happily single like me you're cool with the only thing coming near your lips being champagne. Lots and lots of champagne. But I can understand why model Chrissy Teigen, who took up hosting duties for New Year's Eve with Carson Daly , felt champagne isn't enough. Since, her husband John Legend is spending New Year's Eve elsewhere Teigen decided to find a worthy substitute for her midnight kiss. Let's just say her efforts didn't find anyone that comes close to her actual husband. But while she failed to find the right man for a kiss as we entered 2015 she did provide us lots of entertainment.

Teigen looked through the audience in Times Square finding odd, hilarious ways for men to audition to win the lucky role as her midnight kiss. There was fake hair, lots of laughter, and even someone in a horse mask. By the way, Teigen really got into kissing the horse mask. It was quite a sight.

I also learned Teigen isn't really into dude's with lots of facial hair. She had one guy actually shave off most of his beard for a kiss. As you can see from the screenshot I took, things didn't go so well. I'm sure John Legend will make things up for her since he missed out on giving her a worthwhile kiss to ring in 2015.

Even though she didn't find the perfect midnight kiss replacement in lieu of her husband, it looks like Teigen had a lot of fun hosting the New Year's Eve with Carson Daly special. I look forward to her hosting again with or without the midnight kiss auditions.
