    Remember last week when the ‘FIJI water girl‘ became the surprising star of the Golden Globes? She turned out to be a model and influencer who was really just smizing her way through the red carpet, and boy did her efforts pay off. Fiji water girl ended up in pictures alongside everyone from Richard Madden to Jamie Lee Curtis – although the latter was not very happy with her for it. Eek.

    So what happened at last night’s Critics Choice Awards? Who won big? Who made the most emotional speeches?

    Well, none of that matters to Twitter, quite frankly, because viewers had a new unsung hero in the form of a Joey’s Burgers guy. Just like Fiji water girl, one server made himself known.

    As Host Taye Diggs announced that the winner for best action movie was Mission Impossible – Fallout, the man could be seen smiling at the camera just behind him, creeping closer and closer towards the lens.

    ‘What’s up with the Joey’s Burgers guy in the background?’ one viewer tweeted.

    ‘Wheres the #CriticsChoice award for the Joey’s burger guy?’ another added.

    ‘What is going on with the Joey Burger dude??? He keeps running into every camera shot!’

    Someone else was quick to point out the similarities between the pair, writing: ‘That Joey’s Burger dude is trying to be the Fiji water girl.’

    Is that a bad thing? The world loved her, and we’re certain they’ll love this dude, too.

    Another fan wrote: ‘The Joey’s Burgers joke isn’t working.’

    Okay, maybe not then.
