When Chrissy Teigen needs bananas, Twitter is there to save the day.

The 31-year-old took to social media on Thursday in search of exactly six "brown bananas" to make banana bread...and she offered up major goods in exchange. "If u have 6 BROWN bananas in the LA area, I will send my assistant to your home with a signed cookbook, John's underwear and a Becca palette," one of Teigen's tweet read.

And Teigen wasn't messing around, following up with another tweet telling her followers she's only accepting serious inquiries.

"SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY. please send me a photo of u holding the bananas, giving the peace sign," she wrote.

Teigen then fielded her Twitter offers, until alas, she decided to accept a banana offer. "Banana submissions are now closed. thank you guys so much I will send the runner ups some banana bread once done," Teigen tweeted.

But before the exchange went down, Teigen's assistant had one request. "Just for safety, my assistant asks that u taste a small piece of the banana in front of her before making the trade," Teigen wrote.

And it looks like deal went smoothly, Teigen posted pics of the exchange on Twitter.

And it looks like Teigen made good on all the goods she promised. Meg Zukin, who appears in the pictures above and gifted Teigen the bananas, shared on social media that she did receive a signed copy of Teigen's cookbook, a Becca palette and John Legend's Calvin Klein underwear!

Zukin also mentions on her Instagram story that it doesn't seem like the underwear is brand new, they seem "a little worn," and she's going to frame them. LOL!

In response to his wife giving his underwear away, Legend said on Twitter that he approves of the deal. Legend wrote, "Yes and I approve. Can't make banana bread without brown bananas!"

But oh no! Teigen realized she needed more bananas! "I really, really hate to say this but. I need one more banana," she tweeted on Thursday evening while making her banana bread.

So she reached out to one person who previously made a banana offer. "Do u still have those bananas @onairjake," she tweeted. Jake Updegraff then replied, confirming that he did, and Teigen's "assistant" (her mom) went to meet him!

"My mom just goes 'if I go he better have 2 bananas I not going in traffic for 1' she's like a real dealer," Teigen tweeted. Updegraff saw the tweet and assured Teigen that he did have two bananas.

As Jake confirms to E! News, he delivered two "REALLY brown" bananas to Chrissy's mom and sister today. "They were very appreciative!" he told us. "Her mom hugged me and gave me a kiss on the cheek. They seemed very happy."

"I hope John and Chrissy think of me when they savor that bread," he teased. "Feel free to send me a slice you two."

And just like the first lucky person, Jake received a signed copy of Chrissy's cookbook, socks and makeup from her cosmetics line. 

"Chrissy or John, if you ever need anything, just tweet me," he shared. "With a trio like us, we'd go bananas in the kitchen with some killer recipes."
