Watch out: The wings are coming off for the "Celebrity Showdown" special.

As many of us know, Gigi Hadid is one with many talents.

She rules the runways, has fronted numerous campaigns, can earn up to six figures for an Instagram post and has directed a music video (as well as starred in one). But what you may not have known is that the seasoned catwalker is also a culinary star in the making.

In a new promo clip for the "Celebrity Showdown" episode of MasterChef, Gordon Ramsey asks Hadid, "What's more intimidating? Is it the fashion runways or the MasterChef kitchen?"

To which Hadid responds: "Honestly, it's this because I only get starstruck over chefs."

In the episode, airing Jan 18 on Fox, the 20-year-old beauty and fellow Victoria's Secret model Devon Windsor will be competing against each other for their respective charities: Global Lyme Disease Alliance (Hadid's mom, Yolanda Foster, is fighting Lyme disease) and St. Louis Children's Hospital.

While Hadid doesn't immediately comes to mind as someone who's into cooking (Karlie Kloss wins that title), she shares that one of her proudest moments in the kitchen was when she was a kid.

"When I was 11, I made truffle risotto for my family for Christmas dinner," says Hadid. Meanwhile, Windsor shares, "When I was eight years old, I made a pasta dish in my hometown; it made, like, the paper."

Here's to seeing what they cook up next. Good luck, ladies.
