Who's that girl? The smiling brunette from the embattled HealthCare.Gov website is everywhere. The Obamacare girl is an overnight celebrity and a puzzling mystery.
Andrew Kaczynski of Buzzfeed.com says he spent six weeks to find Obamacare girl and came up empty handed.
He told INSIDE EDITION, “I’ve never searched this hard for someone. Nobody has, and nothing has happened.”
He did discover that the file name of the original photo was “Adriana.” So could that be the mystery girl's name?
INSIDE EDITION did a little detective work of our own and contacted the company that designed the glitch-plagued Obamacare website. It turns out the photo was supplied to them by the Federal Department of Health and Human Services. But they're keeping her identity a state secret.
A spokesperson told us in an email: "The woman featured on the website signed a release for us to use her photo. To protect her privacy, we will not share her personal or contact info."
The mystery brunette has good reason to stay hidden. People are taking out their frustration over the website's problems on her.
"You’re now the most despised face on planet Earth!" wrote one blogger.
"Worst modeling gig ever," wrote another.
The Onion, a satirical website, altered her image to make her look like she is visibly panicking.
Another blogger speculated that she's probably wearing a disguise like a fake mustache, sunglasses and a wooly hat.
Kaczynski said, "This woman either doesn't want to come forward, she's on a very long vacation or she's not a U.S. citizen and lives in like Sweden."
