What would you do if one day you came across a selfie that was taken in your house, but you didn't know who the person was or when the picture was taken? Would you freak out? Or would you take the matter to social media?
Nineteen-year-old West Virginia University student Mark Kowalczyk was just swiping through Tinder one day when he matched with a girl named Jenna. Only, Jenna’s picture seemed odd. Mark eventually realized that, although she was a complete stranger, her Tinder photo was taken in his bathroom.
Mark eventually realized that, although she was a complete stranger, Jenna's Tinder photo was taken in his bathroom. People suggested that maybe the bathrooms simply looked alike, but mark was convinced that the picture was taken in his house.
What started as an innocent tweet with 10 initial favorites turned into a viral sensation with 13,000 retweets and 50,000 favorites. Random people started getting really invested in the ordeal between Mark and Jenna — two strangers who had still never even met in person.
So what really happened? As it turns out, Jenna had gone to a party at Mark’s house not knowing or even meeting the hosts. She then decided to take a bathroom mirror selfie and subsequently used it as her Tinder profile photo. She only realized she had been at Mark’s house when the tweet went viral.
