What is the Mia challenge on TikTok?

The Mia challenge is connected to someone called Mia Khalifa. She is an American-Lebanese social media personality and webcam model.

In this latest trend on TikTok, users have to guess the surnames of famous celebrities.

For example, one would say the first name of a celeb and then the other has to come up with the first surname they think of. So it could be Tom Hardy or Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Garner - you choose the surname, but you just have to act quickly.

How to do the Mia challenge on TikTok?

To take part in the challenge, one of you has to come up with a few celebrity names. So think of actors, singers, politicians - the more difficult names, the more challenging it gets for the other.

Then all you need is a buddy to question and ask them a series of names. 

And by the looks of the TikTok challenge, you fail if you guess Mia's surname and say Mia Khalifa! Is there another famous Mia that we don't know of?
