A video of TikTok star Karalynn Dunton sharing her experience of going to a boy’s house where he keeps bowls of onions in his bathroom has gone viral. This left many people confused whether it is all one big prank. Because, ya know, WTF.

After Karalynn Dunton posted about shower onions, viewers were left confused as to what they actually are.

Is the TikTok Shower Onion video a prank?

TikTok creator, @karalynndunton uploaded a video on 4th of February and reached 6.2million views.

The TikToker was supposedly on a first date with a guy she met online, as she created a video explaining something unexpected that she stumbled across in the bathroom.

In another of Karalynn’s videos, she shows herself biting into the onions. Because of this, viewers were even more confused and started to believe that video was just a prank.

A social media user responded to one of Karalynn’s Tweets stating:

“you’re not going to convince me this is a thing. It cant be. and I’m from weird places. I would know. I think…”

Several more videos were made by Karalynn following on from the #showeronion video, where she steals the boy’s onions and eats them. This made people think it was all a joke.

What are shower onions?

A common use for onions as a life hack is to absorb bad odours and smells.

At first, yes, it will smell like onions, but once left for a while will leave fresh clean smelling air.
