Viral Golden Globes Fiji Water Girl Lands One Episode Role On The Bold And The BeautifulPublished on January 22, 2019. Updated May 23, 2019
It looks like Fiji Water’s viral Golden Globes stunt has led to big things for the promotion girl!
After Kelleth Cuthbert went viral on the red carpet at the 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards where she photobombed many big name stars, she has been tapped to appear on the popular soap opera The Bold and the Beautiful.
Cuthbert took to her Instagram last Wednesday, January 16 to share a photo of herself on set of the soap opera with many of its stars. “Thank you to the lovely folks of @boldandbeautifulcbs for having me yesterday!” she captioned the photo of herself with Nia Sioux, Heather Tom, Courtney Hope and Darin Brooks.
The show’s official Instagram account also shared two photos of Cuthbert on set once again photobombing scenes with her now famous tray of Fiji Water. “Look who was on the #BoldandBeautiful set today! #ifyouknowyouknow,” read the caption of the photobombed images on Instagram.
Cuthbert will only be appearing on one episode of the series currently in its 32nd season, with the episode set to air on February 6. Cuthbert will be in the role of Raine, a Forrester Creations model.
Cuthbert, who usually works as a fashion model and commercial actress, said she wasn’t intentionally trying to steal the spotlight at the Golden Globes— but rather her modeling instincts took over. Of her big Golden Globes moment, Cuthbert explained that the photos simply came about by “looking at the camera at the right time.”
“There’s tons of photographers everywhere. It doesn’t matter where you stand, you’re in the crossfire of every shot,” she explained to PEOPLE. “You’ve gotta have good face, at least, if you’re gonna be hovering in the background frequently.”
While many found the photobombing amusing, there was one celebrity who was not happy with what she saw as a stunt by Fiji. After the photos of Cuthbert hovering behind many stars on the red carpet when viral, Jamie Lee Curtis spoke out. “I specifically moved away from the blatant promotions by Fiji and Moet where young women with their trays filled with their wares stood near a designated camera. I knew why there was a photographer poised there and I moved away as I said out loud that I didn’t want to be doing advertising for either,”Curtis said.
“Clearly this angle shows that I moved from her being behind me and yet from the side it still happens,” she continued. “The sponsors of events need to get permission from people when they get them to take their picture next to products.”
