What's the lore behind the TikTok Rizz Party? It's a bit confusing.

The actual lore surrounding the "TikTok Rizz Party" is a bit confusing, and we're sorry to say, but it's not about an actual party that happened.

Footage of a bunch of teenagers dancing and singing along to Kanye West's "Carnival" went viral. Though it's not entirely clear, it seems the kids are at a high school prom, a friend's birthday party, or a bar mitzvah. The internet then dubbed the event the "TikTok Rizz Party" based on a viral sign for a party of the same name.

There are various videos from this "TikTok Rizz Party" that have circulated, each with the same core characters. There's Group Leader, who is in the front of most of the videos and wearing a blue tie; Second in Command, who is the only one in a white shirt; Tomato Boy, the hype man of the group; and Turkish Quandale Dingle, who seems to be the only one in the group not already friends with the previous characters.

Turkish Quandale Dingle, whose name does not seem to be getting any flack for its potentially offensive profiling, is assumed to be the outsider of the group. This was surmised in a video of the group dancing, where Turkish Quandale Dingle sticks his tongue out while showing off some dance moves to the party goers, seemingly trying to impress them. In subsequent videos, he seems to have a more solid place in the group.

Since the videos first started to make their rounds on TikTok, the lore behind the group has morphed into a thing of its own. People on TikTok have created their own lore for the group, coming up with character arcs for each individual and publishing them online. It's become a fanfiction of sorts, except the characters are based on real people whose names haven't been disclosed.

If you choose to engage with the lore online, it's important to remember that these are real people with lives outside of the fictional TikTok Rizz Party. Though they've become internet stars in their own way, much of this lore is fictionalized and isn't based on more than these people's looks and actions in a series of out-of-context videos.
