You wouldn't know it from her day job, but Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen likes to eat. A lot. On this week's episode of The Getaway, this fetching foodie takes off for Bangkok, a city she knows quite well — especially, its world-famous street food scene. This time around, though, she tries some new things, including a dubious sounding oyster omelet that turns out to be quite delicious, despite an unexpected crunch. Let's just say it brings new meaning to the term "toothsome."

When the call came for Adam Pally, the rising-star comic actor who currently stars as Dr. Peter Prentiss on Fox's The Mindy Project, the answer was simple: Vegas, baby, Vegas.
