Rizz meaning on TikTok

Of course, when it comes to TikTok, different slang isn’t exclusive to the platform and largely depends on the context it’s used within. For TikTokers looking to add ‘rizz’ to their interactions, they may be looking for romance, as the term refers to impressing a desirable other.

Essentially, it is about having game, typically for men attracting women, but it could be used for any sex attracting anyone.

Made popular by Twitch streamer and YouTube content creator Kai Cenat, ‘rizz’ has often been used by the creator to describe his skills when it comes to impressing women.

But if they want to get serious about finding that special connection, they’ll need to achieve one of three ‘rizz grades’ from Cenat: W, V, and L.

L is undoubtedly the worst, with W signaling a ‘win’ for your efforts. W Rizz essentially means you’ve got the art of seduction down pat.

‘Unspoken rizz’ is more specific and “very rare” according to Cenat, with this term implying that a person’s physical appearance is enough to woo a potential partner. Simply, no words need to be spoken.

And there you have it, now you’re ready to get out there and improve your ‘rizz’ game.
