Katherine Webb was born April 24th, 1989 in sweet home, Montgomery, Alabama. Despite being born in Montgomery, Katherine attended both middle and high school in Columbus, Georgia. In 2007, she graduated from Northside High School. 2007 would prove to be a big year for Katherine. In November of that year, she competed for the title of Ms. Georgia. She ranked within the top 15 and won Ms. Photogenic Georgia USA.
Following her graduation from Northside High School, Katherine chose to forgo the pageant route and instead, she chose not to compete in another competition until she received a degree and attained, "more experience." Thus, Katherine chose to attend Auburn University. In May 2011, she proved that not only was she good looking, but smart to boot; graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management and Administration. While at Auburn, Katherine chose to participate in a variety of events that were held by the Women's Philanthropy Board as well as other various community service projects in the surrounding area. Upon graduation, she worked as a training director for Chick-fil-A in Columbus, Georgia.
When 2012 came along, Katherine Webb was like Rocky Balboa in the ring, ready and poised for a comeback. However, instead of going the distance against Apollo Creed, Katherine competed against countless other Alabama women and was crowned the 2012 Ms. Alabama USA.
If 2012 was a big year for Katherine, then 2013 was even bigger. While attending the 2013 BCS National Championship Game, Katherine, who's boyfriend is 'Bama quarterback A.J. McCarron, was spotted in the game telecast. Once spotted, Brent Musburger, the game announcer, had a John Madden moment and stated the obvious, saying that Katherine was "beautiful" and also, a "lovely lady". He then told Kirk Herbstreit, "You quarterbacks get all the good looking women". Once again, duhh. It doesn't take a genius to figure that one out. If you don't believe it, just take a look at New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady.

Following Musburger's comments, Katherine's twitter account jumped overnight from 2,000 followers to over 175,000. Even Lebron James, NBA superstar, couldn't resist jumping on board the bandwagon as one of Webb's many followers. Also the day after the game, "AJ McCarron Girlfriend" had over one million searches. A Youtube video from her appearance at the championship has since gained over three million views.
After being spring-boarded into fame, Katherine was offered a position as one of the judges for the Ms. USA competition, by Donald Trump. She was also offered, and accepted, an opportunity by Inside Edition, a news program, to cover Superbowl XLVII. Not only that, but she was also given a spot on the ABC reality show, Celebrity Diving.
As of now, Katherine models professionally for a variety of clients in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, and Atlanta. She has only just begun her ascent to fame and is sure to be one of the world's brightest, shining stars.
Katherine Webb is one of the most gorgeous women you will ever see, but very few people knew that until the 2013 BCS National Championship game was played. During the telecast, she got a little bit of TV time and the Internet nearly blew up. Within minutes, she was a household name and is a model to keep an eye on this year.
