That woman is Kelleth Cuthbert, a.k.a. Fiji Water Girl.

There were a lot of surprising winners at the 2019 Golden Globes on Sunday, but the show had one clear spotlight-stealer: Aspiring model Kelleth Cuthbert, a.k.a the "Fiji Water Girl."

Cuthbert said she didn't know she had gone viral until the end of the red carpet portion of the evening when people started showing her their phones and the trending photos.

Some netizens urged Fiji Water to make the model its new spokesperson, while others suggested the company seize the opportunity to create an ad campaign around this incident.

She quickly became a star and a meme.

Here are a few of the memes starring the Fiji Water girl.

"But Fiji does have it's own photographer that works with you [and] they just tell us to be ourselves".

Following all the press around the Fiji Water Girl meme, Hamilton rockers Arkells took to Instagram to remind us that we've seen Cuthbert before: in the band's 2015 music video for "11:11".

As soon as the Golden Globes wrapped, Fiji Water Girl's identity was revealed, thus putting my sleuthing efforts to rest.

Cuthbert is signed to Wilhelmina International in Los Angeles and, according to her website, formally worked with several Canadian modeling agencies, including Toronto-based Plutino and Specs in Montreal. In fact, she set her alarm to get up early and get ready, then rethought things and slept in.

"If Bradley Cooper doesn't bring the Fiji girl out on stage to perform "Shallow" with him I'm turning this show off", wrote another Twitter user.

The Golden Globes last night were marked by both historic moments and tremendous upsets.

It would seem that Fiji Water's influencer status would have jumped the shark after 2014, and yet there's something that keeps it cool-at least in the eyes of Instagram's lifestyle gurus.

She's married to photographer Christopher Von Steinback. "I feel like I've been photobombing people since I was a kid".

Yikes, we didn't see this one coming!
