“Hawk Tuah Girl” Hailey Welch Finds Representation

Hailey Welch, who recently gained viral fame on TikTok as “The Hawk Tuah Girl,” has signed for representation with management firm The Penthouse.

“The world’s gone crazy for Haliey! I’m glad our team can help guide this rocketship. All the podcasters are right, spend five minutes with her and you’ll see why she is America’s sweetheart,” The Penthouse founder Jonnie Forster said in a statement.

Welch’s immediate prospects include looking to launch her own social media channels after gaining internet fame with an X-rated clip following an on-the-street interview with Tim & Dee TV. “Please don’t wake me. Two weeks ago it was just my Granny and me in itty bitty Belfast, Tennessee. Then I say something silly and now my life has changed. Isn’t God great?! Can’t wait for what’s ahead,” Welch said in her own statement.

She has done the podcast rounds since becoming a viral sensation, including on Barstool Sports’ Plan Bri audio show for her first official interview earlier this week. Welch has also tapped Nashville entertainment attorney Christian Barker of Christian Barker & Co. for representation.

“Haliey has risen to fame with her cheeky humor — known to her friends as the female Theo Vonn, but after getting to know her on a greater level, I think her small-town, grassroots story and how a chance encounter on Broadway took her on this unexpected path to stardom will resonate with millions. We are proud to represent her on this journey,” Barker said in his own statement.
