Meet HunterGirl aka Hunter Wolkonowski, who the American Idol viewers believe will win it all. The 20th season of American Idol aired on the first night of the Top 24 performances on 11 April 2022 and HunterGirl was one of the contestants who competed in that first group.
Many fans were impressed with her performance and the judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie especially liked her for getting the crowd involved in her performance, which not a lot of the contestants were able to do.
With that being said, let us now dive into details about her personal life, net worth, Idol journey, and more.
HunterGirl aka Hunter Wolkonowski On American Idol
HunterGirl (real name Hunter Wolkonowki) gave one of the stand-out auditions earning touchy-feely praise, especially from judge Luke Bryan.
Her performance of “Riot” by Rascal Flattsblew blew the judges away. She received a standing ovation and Luke ran around the room cheering. Following this, Luke Bryan even invited her to perform at his bar Luke’s 32 Bridge in Nashville. There, amid the performance, the judges revealed that they were giving Hunter the Platinum Ticket. This meant, she need not go through the first part of Hollywood Week like her fellow contestants.
Further, in the Top 24 round, she picked Cole Wesley Ritter as her partner and performed a duet as “Backwood Mac”. They sang “Dreams” by Fleetwood Mac. As for her final solo performance, she sang “Girl Goin’ Nowhere” by Ashley McBryde.
HunterGirl aka Hunter Wolkonowski Net Worth
HunterGirl reportedly had less than $300K as her net worth as of April 2022.
She told judges on the Idol that she works in music therapy with veterans. By the look of it, the organization she works with is called Freedom Sings USA, a non-profit organization that pairs professional songwriters with veterans, military personnel, and their families to help them tell their stories through song.
She dropped her most recent EP “One Day” in March 2022. The rest of her music was available on Spotify where she had more than 10.6K monthly listeners.

On her Facebook BIO, HunterGirl described that she is ‘interested in men’ and ‘single’, as of the time of this writing. So, it was still a mystery if Hunter had a boyfriend.
If in case you were wondering, her duet partner on the Idol whom we talked about earlier was just her great friend. There was no romance there.
HunterGirl aka Hunter Wolkonowski Family
HunterGirl’s mother is Urla Wolkonowski, her mama and best friend wrapped up into one. We did not understand what kind of career “mama Urla” led. But, as per her LinkedIn, she received special education K-12 at Middle Tennessee State University from 2009 through 2011. Then, she did a double bachelor’s in Applied Science (Sociology) at Tennessee Technological University from 1990 until 1995.
Then, there is Chris Wolkonowski, HunterGirl’s father, assistant state conservationist, working in field operations at USDA-NRCS for the past two decades.
Turns out HunterGirl’s parents are still together.
As for siblings, she has a sister Rylan Wolkonowski, aka Ry, who turned 19 on 9 March 2022 and studied at Belmont University as of the time of this writing. “Happy happy birthday to my best friend, little sister, quarantine pal, and best puppy momma ever. Thank you for all the love and laughs you bring every time I see you. So glad we got to spend today together!”, HunterGirl wrote to her sister on her birthday, one time. The elder sister has also praised Ry for having worked so hard with all Honors classes as a Biology major. “I’m so glad you got your dad’s brain instead of mine😊 and HIS accent, since you want to be a doctor😂 Love you so much Ry!”
Last but not the least, Hunter also had a grandfather who she loved immensely. Back in 2018, when he passed away she really had a hard time, even talking about it. That is why she had taken quite some time to pay tribute to him on social media. “My family lost a good man. I loved him so much. He was so kind, loving, and good to us. I’m going to miss him so much. I’m glad he’s not suffering anymore, and he’s in heaven. Please pray for my family and especially my Grandma during this time”, she had said among a few other things.
