This time last year, Bella Hadid, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Emily Ratajkowski headed off the Bahamas to soak up a bit of sun—a trip that seemed innocent enough, but a few months later ended up causing Hadid to tell her hundreds of thousands of Twitter followers that she was felt "so sorry and badly because this is something I couldn’t stand by." The trip, it turned out, wasn't just any old get-together, but one financed by the now infamous Fyre Festival, which ended up being such a fiasco that it even caught the attention of the FBI.
A year later, however, Hadid appears to have moved on from the firestorm—Fyrestorm?—as she seemed to have no qualms about boarding a plane to the Bahamas once again to celebrate her friend Hailey Baldwin's 21st birthday—the mark of a true pal, given that she'd already traveled to both Shanghai, for the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, and her mom's horse farm, for Thanksgiving, earlier this week. In fact, this year, she brought along even more buddies: Kendall Jenner, the singer Justine Skye, the models Camila Morrone and Isabella Peschardt, and the photographer Renell Medrano, who's used to frolicking with Jenner on the beach, also came along to celebrate with Baldwin and Hadid.
Collectively, that makes for a crew with over 100 million Instagram followers, but don't get the wrong idea: they're all totally down to make friends who have absolutely zero following on social media, as evidenced by the friends they made when they ended up at the Exuma Islands, and specifically Pig Beach, which is exactly what it sounds like. Soon, the bikini-clad crew was joined by the island's colony of feral pigs, who seemed more than happy to have them, swimming straight up to the supermodels and bonding with them over slices of white bread.
Anyone who plans on following in their footsteps should be advised that feeding the pigs anything other than fruits and vegetables may cause them to die, or at the very least charge at you in search of more food. Despite her Instagram caption "I'm dead," however, Hadid and the rest seemed to get along swimmingly with the newcomers to their crew.
The pigs's origins are disputed, but rumor has it that they've been living on the island, which they're the only inhabitants of, since the late '90s, when two men dropped them off in a move to have a backup food source in case disaster struck with Y2K. Baldwin and co., on the other hand, were only around for a day or so, and while they left their new friends rather quickly behind, they did make sure to give them some love in their obligatory beachside Instagrams.
