Klum consistently picked Drake until the final choice when she selected actor Joaquin Phoenix.
She said she was single at the time, but Klum has since been dating musician Tom Kaulitz.
Her new love is the reason she didn’t give Drake a chance, Klum explained to DeGeneres.
“Someone who I know knows [Drake] and I guess he asked to have my number, and then he texted me,” Klum said. “I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh. This is so weird!’ But I never texted him back, because I found the love of my life.”
