After Rachel shared her photo, another Reddit user dubbed her “Ridiculously photogenic surgery girl” and posted the image along with the caption “Lose 60% of her lung .. Wins 100% of my heart.” Since then the meme has been repeated and posted more than a hundred times with different captions, ranging from “Loses one lung, steals a million hearts” to “Gets spongebath from janitor.”
Nonetheless, Rachel apparently enjoyed the attention, posting: “I don’t get hit on all the time (maybe because I don’t like leaving my house if I don’t have to) and I feel pretty average. People have been saying so may nice things about me the last few days. I’ve never felt more beautiful. Thank you :)”
The “surgery girl” meme follows the earlier Ridiculously photogenic guy meme.
