AJ McCarron's Girlfriend Katherine Webb May Feature on Dancing with the Stars

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterJanuary 21, 2013

Katherine Webb exploded from anonymous girlfriend of AJ McCarron to America's sweetheart. The wave of instant fame may very well take her to prime time in ABC's Dancing with the Stars.

The New York Post (h/t The Big Lead) reports Webb is making a great deal of change in her life following a brief moment on TV that turned her into a superstar. 

Not only is Webb preparing to feature in the upcoming Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, she is also moving to New York City to work full-time as a model.

But that's not all, because TV may very well be in her future as well:

Webb, who was “initially caught off-guard,” then opened up to the female fans about planning to move to the city so she could establish a modeling career.

Webb was also overheard saying that she was offered a spot in the upcoming season of ABC’s “Dancing With the Stars” but did not say whether she would participate.

Again, there is no way of knowing if she will actually appear or was ever officially offered a spot in an upcoming season.

Still, I have to think she would leap at a chance to feature on the popular dance competition TV series, because this is a young woman who understands the clock may very well be ticking on her fame.

Following the BCS National Championship Game and the call from Brent Musburger that pushed her into celebrity status, Webb has embraced every last bit of work granted to her.

She posed for the upcoming popular swimsuit issue and will also provide on-air reports for Inside Edition during the Super Bowl, via the New York Post.

Let's take a moment to remember that McCarron guy who managed to lead Alabama to a BCS championship.

I will forgive you if you forgot all about him, because it's rather easy to get drowned out by this enormous wave of good fortune provided to his girlfriend, who really did little more than support her boyfriend during the biggest game of his life.

She never asked for the attention of the nation, but she will certainly not squander the opportunity. For the millions who now know who Katherine Webb is, prepare to see a great deal more of her.
