Katherine Webb may soon appear in the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated.
Webb, who is the girlfriend of Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron, who gained national attention last week when ESPN’s Brent Musburger focused on her during Monday night’s National Championship game. And now that everyone is talking about her it’s time for someone to capitalize on her fame.
Webb, who is also the reigning Miss Alabama, sent out a tweet this week saying that she was posing for Sports Illustrated.
Webb wrote: “It’s official…shooting with Sports Illustrated!”
The tweet was quickly deleted but not before it was retweeted and saved to the internet by several people.
A quickly deleted tweet isn’t exactly proof that Katherine Webb will soon land in the pages of Sports Illutrated’s Swimsuit Edition but it wouldn’t be too surprising. After all, this is America and people have gained fame for stupider reasons.
Kate Upton became one of the most sought after models in the world after she was spotted doing the Dougie at an NBA game. Kim Kardashian was able to turn a porno into a media empire. So why can’t Katherine Webb, who arguably has more talent (or at least more Miss Alabama crowns) gain fame after being objectified on ESPN.
Do you think Katherine Webb will be modeling’s next “it” girl?
