“American Idol” runner-up Katharine McPhee is the latest star to get into the celebrity endorsement business. Katharine McPhee has been named as the new spokesperson for Neutrogena.
After much media speculation, the skincare brand has confirmed that McPhee will take part in a new project starting with them in May.
With this, she is the latest young star to join the ranks of girls (Hayden Panettiere, Vanessa Hudgens, Mischa Barton and Jennifer Love Hewitt) who’ve represented the cosmetics giant.
She will become the new flawless face of the skin care company’s anti-acne product line in the two-year deal.
While no official announcement has been made from Neutrogena’s camp, a source close to the deal says the entertainer pocketed more than $500,000 for the use of her fresh-faced visage.
McPhee was the runner-up in season five of “American Idol,” placing second to Taylor Hicks. Her beautiful girl-next-door looks helped keep her in the spotlight as did a record deal.
She also appeared in PEOPLE magazines ‘100 Most Beautiful Women’ list.
