Did you watch the BCS National Championship Game last night? Haha, I love how we joke. In case you're curious, it was a very ("the MOST") important college football game. The University of Alabama won, but the real news story here is that the Alabama quarterback's girlfriend is pretty.
Picked up 150,000 Twitter followers overnight because she was on television for a few seconds-pretty.
People cannot stop talking about how pretty she is.
The first person to very publically observe her prettiness was ESPN announcer Brent Musburger. A clip of him noticing her in the stands quickly went viral, with many labeling his infatuation "creepy," "uncomfortable," and "awkward." You can check out a video of all four (4!) of ESPN's cutbacks to her above. Here is a partial transcript of what Musburger says the first time he beholds her:
"Wow, I'm telling you. You quarterbacks, you get all the good-lookin' women. That's a…what a beautiful woman! WHOA."
Before last night's game, beautifulwomanwhoa Katherine Webb's twitter account had 2,300 followers. She's already up to over 150,000. As of 2 p.m. EST, her rate of acquisition was about 100 followers per minute.
So what do we know about the new Queen of America?
How has her beauty gone unnoticed for so long?
It hasn't. In January 2012, Webb was crowned Miss Alabama USA. In 2007, she almost won the title of Miss Georgia USA. (She placed in the top 15 and was awarded "Most Photogenic.") Everywhere she goes, they hand her a sash and a new title. She's like Miss Confederacy.
She mad tho?
She not mad tho. Webb told TMZ she found the 73-year-old announcer's comments flattering, funny, and not creepy "at all!"
Does this girl have a job beyond "workin' it"?
Yes. According to the Miss USA website, she currently works at Chick-fil-A as a "training director," teaching non-homosexuals to glorify God through the distribution of chicken parts. She also works as a model.
Does she want to get wings with me at a gentleman's club after the game?
Unknown. This scenario was proposed by Arizona Cardinals player Darnell Dockett who began tweeting at Webb after she appeared on television. He tweeted Katherine his mobile number as well as an invitation to accompany him to Wing Stop, followed by the King of Diamonds strip club "after the game."
Almost immediately, Dockett deleted the tweets and said he had intended for the messages to be private DMs.
In what way is she most like Michael Jackson?
It's a toss-up between her widespread commercial appeal and her vitiligo.
How does Queen Katherine, USA compare to Duchess Catherine, UK? Let's see: one is a wretched party planner's daughter and the other is a beautiful wonder-angel with hair so soft it hurts to touch and Chick-fil-A coups on demand. No comparison.
How old is she?
Update: ESPN is sorry it ogled that pretty girl. VP of Communications Mike Soltys just posted the following message on his twitter account:
Have been asked on focus on @_KatherineWebb in BCS: We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that.
No more girls for ESPN :(
