Katherine Webb, the 2013 Sports Illustrated swimsuit model and Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron’s girlfriend, will appear in a steamy new TV commercial for Carl’s Jr. hamburgers.
She broke the news on Twitter and released some photos of the shoot as the No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide prepares for its showdown against the No. 6 ranked Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday.
“Guess who’s in the next @CarlsJr @Hardees commercial?!,” Webb tweeted. “On set in #LA, digging into Buffalo Blue Cheese Burger #EatLikeYouMeanIt.”
The photo from the Carl’s Jr. TV spot shows Webb sitting in a football stadium and appears to recreate the moment that national TV cameras discovered her during the BCS National Championship Game last January. That’s when Alabama rolled over Notre Dame, 42-14.
Webb, who recently signed with IMG Models, follows in the footsteps of SI Swimsuit Edition veterans Kate Upton and Nina Agdal who steamed up TV screens all over the country in their Carl’s Jr. ads.
Here’s the video of Upton falling out of her dress in the hamburger chain’s commercial last year:
Webb was barely making ends meet when ESPN sportscaster Brent Musburger gushed over her and launched her career. She landed a spread in SI and several other magazines. She also landed TV appearances on ABC’s celebrity diving show, “Splash,” “Inside Edition,” and on Spike TV.
Webb has been out of the spotlight during the past couple of months.
