She is possibly the most famous women on the internet and nobody knows who she is. I know she is a model for a stock photo.

Pretty sure she's the woman behind the voice on my GPS.

 

Not the aussie default one though.

Hope she's getting royalties on all those uses of her image.

Most overused stock photo is my guess.

 

She probably got paid peanuts for that photo as well.

I'd wager that from the remarkably widespread use of that image, she's probably got very little and is getting nothing at all.

 

From a marketing POV, she's perfect.

 

Actually not quite perfect "beauty" according to some standards, her face/smile and eyebrows aren't quite symmetrical, which makes her "believable". 
She's more or less perfectly "caramelised" - showing features of most races without being clearly any in particular.
She's attractively dressed, but modestly and respectably, forearms covered - inoffensive to all but the most extreme religious nutters.

There is a stock photo of a guy with a headset that seems to appear on lots of sites as well.

She's the twenty-teens equivalent of The Everywhere Girl a decade earlier

 

 

Jennifer Chandra, was a struggling actress/model living in Los Angeles, CA, and immortalized as "The Everywhere Girl" by Mike Magee's Tech Blog, TheInquirer.Net. Pictures of her from a Photo Shoot at Reed College, and subsequently sold to Getty Images, were made famous by their simultaneous licensing and use by Dell and Gateway. She is called "The Everywhere Girl", since her photos have been seen seemingly everywhere on the Internet. Readers, who spotted online or real-world use of "The Everywhere Girl's" stock photos from the Reed College photo shoot, sent the links to the Inq for publishing to the net. After the initial discovery on Dell & Gateway sites, "The Everywhere Girl" was been spotted in ads for HP, UPS, Visa, The Society of Actuaries, Microsoft Germany, MSN Encarta, Brown College, BBC, Minnesota Bank, US Department of State, University of Hamburg, Prentice Hall, Electrovaya, The University of Manitoba, Greyhound, CNN, and more. 

 

She was, indeed, just about everywhere those couple of years

Never seen or don't remember ever seeing the pic.

Big difference IMO - as those images were licensed out by Getty and you know who she is.

 

Getty are so anal about unauthorised use, they've sent out threatening letters to photographers - demanding "cash settlement now - or see you in court" to photographers who've licensed photos for Getty to use, when those photographers have posted their own photos on the web as they're entitled to do in terms with Getty's license agreement.
