Teenager earns $20,000 after sharing ‘perfect’ Doritos chip on TikTok

On July 19, 13-year-old Rylee Stuart posted a TikTok that changed her life. The video, which now has more than 6 million views, shows the strange “puffy Dorito” she found in a bag of chips. “I found a puff Dorito!” Rylee captioned her video. “Is this valuable or should I just eat it … tell me please”. As it turns out, Rylee made the right call. As Rylee’s video began to go viral, several commenters encouraged her to sell the chip on eBay. When she did, the bids started rushing in — and in a matter of days, the price had surged up to a whopping $100,000. According to The Takeout, the chip was eventually taken off eBay, but Rylee still got her money. That’s because PepsiCo, which owns Doritos, heard about Rylee’s story and decided to give her $20,000 for her “perfect” chip. “All this for a Dorito,” one TikToker commented “GIRL THAT’S ICONIC,” another wrote. Rylee, for her part, had some wisdom to share from the experience. “I wasn’t expecting this,” the teen said on TikTok. “And it just goes to show, all the people who said, ‘Just eat it’ … Maybe think next time before you eat that chip”
