The two America's Got Talent judges had some fun backstage in between filming the 16th season of the show. Klum, 48, gave Mandel, 65, a modeling lesson and showed him how to strut down the catwalk.
The comedian sported a pair of Klum’s thigh-high stiletto boots, and he worked it down the imaginary runway while the pair filmed a video for Instagram.
“No you gotta go on the beat. Walk, walk, walk, walk. When you’re halfway, turn, turn!” Klum advised in the video as she snapped her fingers to the beat. “Come, come. And now give me a sexy post! Sexy, sexy, do it like how I did it. Perfect.”
“We always goof around. There’s so much time always in between. Or we go on a dinner break and they set up the stage again,” Klum explained on Ellen when talking about her runway lesson with Mandel.
“He’s always making fun of me, like how hard can it be? And I’m like, really? Let’s see. And I have a foot 11, so he, sure enough, fit in my shoes. That’s the outcome. He’s always up for anything. Honestly, I love him so much,” she continued.
“It is amazing. Finally Simon is back because last year we had to do it without him. He was so jealous,” she quipped.
Mandel also recently spoke about the experience of getting back into the swing of things with a live audience.
“It was wonderful — it’s like you’ve been lost forever, and now you feel like, 'I’m home,'” the comic said to PEOPLE. “Just to hear a reaction behind you, just to hear anybody be behind you and kind of, affirm that what you just heard or what you just saw or how you just judged — they’re either in agreement with [you], or they’re totally opposed to what you just said.”
Mandel also spoke out recently about his lifelong struggles with OCD and anxiety, and how the pandemic impacted his mental health journey.
