TikToker BBQwithBigJake went viral on TikTok, all because of speculation and theory-crafting related to his age.

In a viral April 24 TikTok video with almost 8 million views, @bbqwithbigjake shared what he called a “poor man’s burnt ends” recipe for those who want to enjoy BBQ on a budget.

The video, however, did not go viral because of the ingenuity of his budget recipe.

Instead, the comment section of the video has become a forum for rampant speculation about Jake’s age, because according to one of the many such comments Jake “could be 12, could be 40.”

Some other users pointed out that Jake looks very cheerful in the video.
