Texas Tech cheerleader says she’s received ‘many’ marriage proposals after viral Masters moment

A Texas Tech cheerleader who went viral last month after catching the attention of social media users tuning into the Masters says she’s received “many” marriage proposals since a viral Tiktok capturing her excitement led to her popularity online. 

Aaliyah Kikumoto, a member of Texas Tech’s Pom Squad, told the U.K.’s Daily Star on Sunday that her internet fame has led to some adoring fans popping the big question.

“It has been an interesting ride and one that I wasn’t expecting to happen in this sort of fashion,” she also told the outlet. 

“It’s something I wanted at some point to grow my brand and be a positive influence for good. While all this is unfolding I’m still trying to do homework, study for exams, Pom commitments, and other things.”
