The Popular Crowd: No. 4 Nina Agdal

To celebrate the waning days of 2013 we are presenting you with the most Googled models from the 2013 Swimsuit Issue, as determined by some very high level analytics I slaved over through the holiday (thank you, Google Trends).

Coming in at number four is . . .

Carl's Jr.

A.K.A. Nina Agdal. As we've already indulged the aesthetic aspects of her year, let's take a look at some of the other things that made the girl with the best hair flip since Kelly Kapowski so Googleable. Thankfully, Nina is a devout member of the Church of Instagram, so getting a glimpse into her personal life didn't require much sleuthing.

. . . Nina found plenty of love in other warm, fuzzier, better places:

She showed us that you’re never too old to go to prom (and that you aren’t required to wear Jessica McClintock).

And still look like this:

For the love of all that is Holy, this was Nina in a so-called “food coma”:

But her Instagram feed attested that she didn't get there without a massive amount of all this:

If that's not proof enough there's also this:

But best of all?

Not only did her Super Bowl ad for Carl's Jr. cause a massive power outage at the Superdome (relay device, my ass). It also was the centerpiece for a hilarious scene in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut Don Jon, a dysfunctional father-son bonding moment played out at the dinner table.
