Girls Are Rating The Fish Instead Of The Guys Holding Them On Tinder (5 Pics)

It’s been a cliché on Tinder for men to show off their dead fish in their pictures. Why are they still doing it? Is it to show off their ability to put food on the table? Well, bad news, fellas, but they don’t teach how to scale and gut a fish in home ec anymore. They don’t even have home ec anymore, and we all buy frozen fish sticks.

In reality, guys probably share these photos because they’re amongst the few they have where they’re clearly doing stuff with people and looking happy-ish. And that’s fine. I do wonder if they’d stop if they knew how much people are making fun of them for it, though.

Well, there’s a TikTok semi-trend that is getting the message out to a wider circle. It was started by @muesli_girl, who took shots of potential Tinder matches and their fish, and the green-screened herself into them. Then she rated them:

@muesli_girl##greenscreen ##voiceeffects ##fyp ##datingapp♬ original sound – muesli_girl

She doesn’t really give them a number, more of an appraisal. Like, “too long” and “weird shape” and “where did that fish come from, it looks like you’re on a golf course.”

It’s pretty hilarious. In fact, it’s so hilarious, another woman did almost the exact same thing. TikToker @rachllloooo’s TikTok has way more views on TikTok, but it’s very similar to the original, even copying a number of the phrases and jokes that one uses:

@rachellloooo##greenscreen ##voiceeffects fish boys! ##fyp ##foryou ##foryoupage ##ratethings ##fish ##tinder ##TheHighNote♬ original sound – rachellloooo

The two accounts have a similar number of followers, but @rachellloooo got a boost on Twitter, when Twitter user @KashWhiteley posted it and it went super-viral:

And at least one fish guy discovered he’s been getting dragged this whole time and got upset about it:


But most of the ladies found it pretty relatable:

And on the flip side, here’s a guy rating different kinds of grass:

So what’s the lesson here? Throw the fish back in the water and credit content.
