Meet the viral star who’s cooking up laughs with his live reaction videos.
Kalen Allen has a special knack for saying what we’re all thinking – particularly when it comes to questionable food recipes (if you can call them food!).
Kalen created his first video as a joke to share among friends, then amassed six thousand Twitter followers overnight. “I’m a little boy from Kansas, so this don’t happen all the time,” he recently told The Ellen DeGeneres Show about his rise to online popularity.
Kalen has some pretty strong feelings about food, so what about his personal taste? “I’m more of a homestyle, traditional kind of cook,” he shared with Ellen. “I don’t like adding extra seasonings. I don’t like being all extra with stuff.” Fair enough!
Speaking of extra stuff, when he’s not filming “Kalen Reacts” videos, Kalen keeps a full plate as an honors student at Temple University. At school he juggles several side gigs which include working in the residence hall, and co-hosting the campus's talk show!
Now all Kalen needs is his own TV show! Maybe call it Keeping Up with Kalen?
In today’s number one ViralList video, watch Kalen heckle a recipe so bad it makes him want to call Child Protective Services.
Finally, cooking videos that make us laugh instead of just making us hungry!
