Katherine Webb is reportedly moving to the Big Apple to pursue her modeling career and a new report claims that the Miss Alabama USA 2012 may appear on ABC's "Dancing With The Stars."
Webb, who quickly became an internet sensation after ESPN reporters gave her a personal shout out during the recent BCS National Championship, was reportedly overheard discussing the "DWTS" gig at a New York restaurant on Thursday. The model was in town for a shoot when a group of fans approached her, according to The New York Post.
Webb, 23, has wasted no time capitalizing off of her newly acquired fame as the Alabama native recently landed a hosting gig on "Inside Edition." She will reportedly provide on-air reports live from the Super Bowl on Feb. 3.
On Jan. 7 Webb was present at the BCS Championship simply to watch her boyfriend, Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron, and his team defeat Notre Dame. However, she appeared to be a distraction for some after she was picked up by ESPN cameras during the first quarter and then consistently thereafter throughout the game.
Twitter was abuzz and Webb began to trend on the social networking site after ESPN sportscasters openly complimented her during the match.
Webb quickly attracted the attention of many including the Arizona Cardinals' Darnell Dockett and NBA star LeBron James who allegedly began following her on Twitter. She admitted that the instant fame was bizarre.
"My followers went from 2,300 this morning to 96,000 by the end of the night. I don't know if I should even check now, I don't know what is going on," a baffled Webb told Yahoo! Sports.
"I guess [Musburger] said something but I don't know what it was because I haven't seen it," she went on. "Oh Lord. This is the first time that's kind of ever happened for me. I've never dated someone who's actually been in the spotlight, so it's a new thing for me."
