The 2019 Golden Globes had lots of viral moments. Like Emma Stone yelling “Sorry!” for starring in Aloha and Chrissy Metz maybe calling Alison Brie a bitch while on air. But one of the most viral moments happened on the red carpet when a Fiji water model photobombed celebrities’ red carpet photos.
Fiji was the official water of the Globes and they hired promotional models to hand out their beverage. One model managed to photobomb countless celebrity photos all while serving face.
Twitter went nuts for the Fiji Water Girl and pronounced her a star.

Can't believe that what we will truly remember from this evening is that this is the night The Fiji Girl was born.

She quickly became a star and a meme. The uber-popular meme account Saint Hoax quickly photoshopper the model into other ionic pop culture moments so she could steal some more scenes.

On this day back in 2011, @christophervonsteinbach became my ride or die bitch. Back in 2010, after spending one day working together in Los Angeles, we did the adult thing and stuffed our feelings for each other down. We lived in different countries and I convinced myself that being together was an impossibility. A year later, on a whim, he booked a trip to Toronto to see me. Two months later, he sold all his earthly possessions and moved to Canada in the dead of a particularly sunless and cruel winter. Half a year later, we got married in spite of being two people who actively rebuked the idea of marriage. I didn't (and don't) believe in it, but I sure believe in him. We don't wear wedding rings (which other men love to comment on daily), but then we've never thought a piece of jewelry is what makes or keeps you committed to someone. It was the most out of character thing I've ever done, yet the most cogent. 🖤 #rideordie #husband #couple #tattoos #model
Congrats to Kelleth’s new found internet fame.
