The 21-year-old stated that she has received offers from strangers to spit in a jar for as much as USD 600. However, Welch noted that she feared being a ‘Hawk Tuah’ girl forever.

“The guy that sells my hats, he got offered USD 600, like three days ago, for me to spit in a jar and sell it — that is revolting!” Welch cracked at one point. “I was like, ‘Should I do it?’ And I was like, ‘Nah, don’t do that.’” She also disclosed that she got spooky texts on a regular basis.

Welch talked about the famous on-street interview that is ruling the internet currently. In the on-street interview, she was asked to make a sex move that makes a man go crazy which she responded with ‘hawk tuah’ statement. Welch mentioned that earlier that night she had been hanging out with her friends around Nashville during CMA Fest, when a person came up to her with a microphone.

Welch, in her podcast interview, stated that she didn’t expect to see herself on the video again as it went viral a few weeks later after the video was posted. She first realised that she had just blown up after seeing the video on her phone at two in the morning, before work. In her podcast interview, she rebuffed several rumours that had been hanging onto her name. She also clarified that she has no social media account for personal reasons, adding that her viral video has nothing to do with it.

On being asked about the family’s reaction to the viral ‘Hawk Tuah’ video, she said that her parents found the video funny as they knew that she could say anything. Welch now owns a team and management, stating that she does not want ‘Hawk Tuah’ associated with her. She also said that she intends to tour the entire county to “be on a show and be on a bunch of podcasts and everything else in between.” She said, “Don't worry, more to come.”
