Now, shifting the focus to a harmless trend, people have been talking about the scholarship challenge.
What is the scholarship challenge on TikTok?
In the past, videos of people getting scholarships have gone viral. However, this trend is a bit different. The challenge is all about how well you can prank your parents.
The scholarship challenge starts with an individual inviting their parent, usually their mother or grandmother, and talking about how they’ve been an inspiration.
The individual then pretends to record their video and narrates a tale of why their parent has been an inspiration to them. While the story might have some real instances, the content soon turns into a collection of lies.
The most common lie that people say is that their parent was an escort while growing up. In short, the challenge revolves around seeing how the parent reacts to this.
