The identity of ‘Peach Bowl Girl’ has finally been found!
A social media frenzy erupted after the Ohio State vs. Georgia Peach Bowl game on January 2nd, as users attempted to identify a young woman who was spotted in the stands.
Dubbed “Peach Bowl Girl,” photos and videos of the woman quickly went viral, with many people expressing their admiration for her beauty.
The game, which took place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, was a highly-anticipated matchup between two top college football teams. Ohio State ultimately emerged victorious, defeating Georgia by a score of 52-24.
However, it was not the outcome of the game that garnered the most attention on social media, but rather the appearance of a young woman who was spotted in the stands.
Photos and videos of the woman, who was wearing a Ohio State sweater and cheering on the team, quickly circulated online.
As the search for the identity of Peach Bowl Girl intensified, it was eventually revealed that her name is Catherine Gurd. Gurd, who is from Columbus, Ohio, is a student at Ohio State University and a die-hard Buckeyes fan. She told reporters that she had no idea that she had become an internet sensation until a friend alerted her to the fact that her photos were being shared widely on social media.
Despite the sudden attention, Gurd remained gracious and good-natured about the whole experience. In an interview with the New York Post, she stated that “it’s definitely been a fun experience. I had no idea that people were taking pictures of me and that I would end up being this viral sensation. But it’s all in good fun and I’m just enjoying it.”
Catherine Gurd responded with her own TikTok, which at the time of writing, now has almost 6 million views.
