Gigi Hadid divides fans with unusual potato snack

Gigi Hadid has divided fans after admitting she likes to eat French fries dipped in mashed potato.

The model appears in a photoshoot for the April 2020 issue of U.S. Harper's Bazaar magazine, and in an accompanying article, was asked by Queer Eye star Antoni Porowski how she discovered the snack.

"I don't remember exactly what night this was, but it was probably after a few passion fruit martinis at Le Chalet at L'Avenue at Saks, which makes my favourite mashed potatoes on the planet," she replied. "We must have run out of ketchup, so I dipped the fries in the mashed potatoes - and eureka!"

However, the online response to Gigi's carb-loaded dish was mixed.

"We've all made a mistake or two after a passion fruit martini, but this is too far!" one follower wrote on Twitter, while another added: "Technically it's potato on potato but that's still kinda weird."

But one fan pointed out that most people would have tried the French fries and mashed potatoes at fast food restaurants.

"Y'all never been to KFC??" they asked.

Elsewhere in the Harper's Bazaar chat, Gigi was asked by TV host Jimmy Fallon about her favourite hamburgers at the moment.

"I got to go back to L.A. for the Tom Ford show this past fashion week, and as a California kid, I will always have a huge place in my heart for In-N-Out's Double-Double Animal Style," the 24-year-old insisted. "But since you and I always talk NYC burgers, I just tried Hall on West 20th Street. It's the cutest little place. First come, first served. Simple but great burger and fries. And you get a yuzu lemonade with the lunch special-all for $12!"
