What Is ‘Couch Guy’ and Why Is Everyone Talking About It?

If you’ve spent any time on TikTok lately you’ve probably seen videos going around about ‘Couch Guy’ or ‘Couch Guy Tok’.

So, what is Couch Guy? And why is everyone talking about it?

Couch Guy is the word used to refer to the guy featured in the now viral video posted where a girlfriend surprises her boyfriend in college only, he doesn’t seem very surprised at all.

Essentially, the boyfriend who is seen sitting on the couch, has been dubbed ‘Couch Guy’.

The girlfriend’s name is Lauren Zarras, and she showed up to her boyfriend’s college dorm room to surprise him. Only, he doesn’t seem too excited to see her. He doesn’t really even get up from the couch right away.


Also, he is seen sitting right next to a few girls. YIKES.

But what is crazy is that the internet is entirely divided over whether or not he is a good boyfriend and whether or not Lauren has anything to worry about in their relationship.

Of course, Lauren, the girlfriend, responded to many of those comments saying:

Lauren responded to the phone comments saying, “His phone was in his lap. Thanks for the concerns though! And no I’m not in denial.”

Lauren also wrote, “Breaks my heart that people can watch a special moment and bring so much negativity. Please think before you say anything about my relationship.”

I mean, she’s not wrong though. While she did post the video online for the world to see and react to, people should leave her be.

So, now you know what Couch Guy is all about. If you haven’t seen the video, you can watch it below.
