  • Viral star “Fiji Water Girl” was born on this year’s Golden Globes red carpet.
  • The model behind the meme is Toronto native Kelleth Cuthbert.
  • Speculation is growing that the “Fiji Water Girl” will reprise her role at this year’s Oscars

Her Twitter bio reads “Hi! I’m Golden Globes’ Breakout Water Girl and also the first worldwide meme of 2019. Stay hydrated, drink Fiji!” Welcome to the world of Fiji Water Girl, the Canadian model otherwise known as Kelleth Cuthbert.

Hired to hand out water at the Golden Globes, Cuthbert was supposed to blend in with the otherwise noteworthy and recognizable crowd. However, this accidental viral star went to new heights after being caught slyly photo bombing red carpet shots of everyone from Jim Carrey to Nicole Kidman. And now, Cuthbert has everyone wondering what’s next for the Internet sensation.

Many are even wondering if her appearance at this year’s Golden Globes will be recreated in the same setting at the 91st annual Academy Awards.

Naturally, the Golden Globes are known as the sloppier, wackier younger brother of the Oscars. Having a viral water girl star break out at the Golden Globes really comes as no surprise given the Globes’ colorful history.

Believing that the Oscars are going to continue on with Fiji Water Girl’s fifteen minutes of fame is anyone’s guess. But given that the Academy is doing their best to keep relevant and give people a reason to be entertained, it’s possible.

Including Fiji Water Girl in the Red Carpet (and perhaps even a cameo during the show) could be one piece of an overarching plan for the Oscars to come off young, hip, and in touch with modern references.

Great Advertising or Accidental Fame?

It’s still unclear whether the debut of Fiji Water Girl was a well calculated marketing tool utilized by Fiji Water the brand itself, or if Cuthbert simply took her opportunity and spontaneously ran with it.

Regardless, the future of Fiji Water Girl has endless possibilities. The public is speculating she could be featured in a possible Netflix series, host Saturday Night Live, or become the official face of Fiji Water.

For now, watch for her to sneak a little smirk in on the Oscars’ red carpet.

Pick: Yes (+200)
