Tiktok has been filled with videos about so-called ‘couch guy’ after a girl posted a video surprising her boyfriend at college, but his reaction made people suspicious that he might be cheating

The original video posted by ‘laurenzarras’ on Tiktok was captioned ‘robbie had no idea.’ Lauren surprises her boyfriend but he doesn’t seem to have a big reaction, and people think that the other people in the room also feel off.

Many people in the comments picked up on the energy of the video, commenting on how he didn’t jump up in excitement. Many people are claiming the girl next to him had ‘couch guy’s’ phone or that he had a hand on her.

Despite all the Tiktok’s and comments, the girl who made the original video has repeatedly defended herself and her relationship.

She commented ‘breaks my heart that people can watch a special moment and bring so much negativity. please think before you assume anything about my relationship.’ 

She added ‘as for the phone comment, his phone was in his lap:) thanks for the concerns though! and no I’m not in denial.’

Since the video many other Tiktok users have started showing their only surprise videos, showing big reactions for surprises that couch guy really should’ve had.

Robbie, the ‘cough guy’ himself still seems in good spirits despite all the controversary. He made a tiktok with the caption ‘I love @laurenzarras. She is the best.’

He also wrote in the Tiktok ‘Couch guy here. Not everything is true crime. Don’t be a parasocial creep. Go get some fresh air. Take care.’

The comments haven’t responded in the best favour though, with one user commenting: ‘Yes king, you can pull this off. Gaslight her and us.’

Laurenzarras, couch guy’s girlfriend also still seems in good spirits, and is now selling couch guy t-shirts and making jokes about the original video, which some people now think could have been set up all along.

So, what do you think? Do you think couch guy cheated? Or did Tiktok users just picked up on something that wasn’t there? No matter what, it seems couch guy and his girlfriend are staying together.
