In a TV interview shortly after the death of longtime girlfriend Lennay Kekua, former Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o referred to Kekua as "the most beautiful girl I’ve ever met."
Kekua, of course, turned out not to be real, and Te’o’s admission that he’d been duped by an elaborate online prank ended up making international headlines (and, perhaps, dropping him to the second round of the NFL Draft).
“After Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend hoax of 2012, we think it might be nice to have an invisible girl of our own to love. Why not? She’s got a ton of great qualities, including looking awesome in a bikini.”
