Meet the Fiji water girl who went viral at the Golden Globes

Fiji water girl steals show at Golden Globes

The year 2019 may just have founds its first meme in the "Fiji Water Girl", who has created ripples on the internet by photobombing nearly every red carpet shot at the Golden Globe awards ceremony held on Sunday.

But it turns out not everybody is as enamoured with the viral model as we are.

It wasn't that Cuthbert ("Kelleth" is an old high-school nickname for "Kelly") lucked out and nabbed a prime spot over the other water ambassadors. The Good Place's Jameela Jamil was jokingly misidentified as a character from her show on the ceremony's red carpet.

You might have actually seen Kelleth Cuthbert, the viral Fiji Water Girl before in a Canadian band's music video.

After Samsung and Asus' announcements, Acer has unveiled a curious $4,000 convertible laptop named the Predator Triton 900 . The Acer Predator Triton 900 will be available in the USA and Europe in March, starting at $3,999 (€4,199, about AU$5,650).


Nicole Kidman, Richard Madden and Jim Carrey were just three of the stars who were on the receiving end of Kelleth's accidental photobombing on the red carpet. "There are two people here tonight that I'm so grateful they're here for me", Sandra said in her speech, adding in Korean, "Mom, Dad, I love you" with a little bow.

With fame, however, comes rampant gossip, and Cuthbert shut down one rumor that she'd already heard about in the hours since the red carpet. Turns out it's Canadian model Kelleth Cuthbert of Toronto, who now works for Wilhelmina International in Los Angeles and several Canadian modelling agencies, including Toronto-based Plutino and Specs in Montreal. Picture: Getty So, who exactly is Fiji water girl? . She also thanked Time magazine for their article, "The Fiji Water Girl Stole the Show at the 2019 Golden Globes Red Carpet".

Despite working in the industry for more than a decade, Cuthbert isn't quite used to her newfound fame.

"I've been photobombing since I was a kid", she said with a laugh.

The 60-year-old shared a photo of Kelleth's photobomb on Instagram and wrote: 'So, my husband, who doesn't look at a lot of show business news sites, just mentioned that I was on the CNN website. And how did she know how to work a room like that?

Since she's gained recognition after posing on the red carpet, Cuthbert's Instagram following has skyrocketed, going from about 53,000 followers (via Us Weekly) to a whopping 99,600 followers at the time of this writing.

In a 2018 interview with fashion blog TorontoVerve, the model with more than 10 years' experience described her previous work in social services before becoming a fulltime model.
