Last night's BCS Championship Game between The Alabama Crimson Tide and The University of Notre Dame created a brand new national star.
It wasn't Notre Dame's Heisman finalist Manti Te'o, it wasn't even Alabama quarterback and two-time National Champion AJ McCarron, it was his girlfriend Katherine Webb. Jaws dropped and social media exploded last night when McCarron's main squeeze, Webb, flashed across the screen on ESPN.
The usually professional Brent Musberger and Kirk Herbstreit gushed over the woman, who ironically is an alumni of Alabama rival Auburn University. She also happens to be the reigning Miss Alabama. The thirst that was displayed from the average joe to the superstar celebrities last night was unparalleled.
Starting the night, Webb had about 2,000 followers on her Twitter account until her count skyrocketed to over 100,000; one of which being NBA MVP LeBron James. Once LeBron had been caught clicking that follow button, the married NBA superstar quickly unfollowed once he realized how hot the block had got. Not to subtle, however, was Arizona Cardinals star, Darnell Dockett.
The Cardinals player asked Webb, "aye u going to king of diamonds Monday after game? Hit me (Adult Videos) Adult Videos-XXXX when game over, lets go to wing stop then King of diamond," he tweeted jokingly after deleting the tweet. "S**t, that was suppose to be DM" he quickly followed up after allegedly giving out his phone number to his well over 100,000 followers.
The thirst was alive and well last night, so hit the jump to see how many people reacted to seeing McCarron's wifey on ESPN last night including a few flicks of the pageant queen. Congratulations to AJ McCarron on that little game he had to, or whatever.
The Alabama Crimson Tide defeated the Notre Dame Fighting Irish 42-14.
