Introducing The TikTok Love Triangle That's Been Keeping Me Up At Night

Imagine you’re scrolling through TikTok, and instead of the usual dance trends and some annoying person fake-gasping at a mid lipgloss, you stumble upon a full-blown, modern-day love triangle. Cue the popcorn because Ayamé, our main girl from the UK, is at the center of all this juicy drama. For the past six months, she’s been in a back-and-forth with two suitors: Yuval, the digital Sherlock Holmes from the US, and Oliver, the charming singer-boxer.

So who exactly are the guys vying for Ayamé’s heart? Or, as we’ve become to know them: the TikTok Love Triangle.

How Did The Love Triangle Start?

The playful back-and-forth started when this guy Yuval stitched one of Ayamé’s hotel review videos back in December 2023. He pinpointed her location just for fun, but things quickly escalated. Ayamé kept dropping clues about her whereabouts, always keeping him guessing. Yuval, being the overachiever he is, even matches his pajamas to hers in one video. Yup, actual matching PJs.

Then, things took a spicy turn in May when Ayamé flirted with Oliver during a video shoot for an Audible ad they were both on. Yuval, not one to back down, sent Oliver flowers (red roses, to be exact) and a note telling him to back off. Meanwhile, Oliver’s been all in, singing love songs to Ayamé. He seems like he’s genuinely smitten — he even said Ayamé is one of the funniest people he’s ever met.

Amidst all this romantic drama (and potentially even the cause of it) the members of the love triangle have been doing some serious good too. Ayamé and Yuval have used their viral fame to raise funds for causes like Pass the Hat and Operation Olive Branch, to help support families in Gaza. Yuval even managed to get his followers to raise $200,000 in less than 24 hours for a GoFundMe campaign. Oliver, while not as direct with his fundraising, has a GoFundMe link in his bio to help a Palestinian family rebuild their home.

And because this is TiKTok afterall, Yuval’s also sprinkled in some fake drama to keep the views and donations flowing. In one video, he dramatically claimed he could no longer pursue Ayamé, only to reveal it was a ploy to get more donations. Do you expect anything less from a genius?

As of mid-June, the love triangle is still going strong, and we might get to even see them all together soon. In fact, Yuval just made a guest appearance on Ayamé’s podcast In Ayamé We Trust on June 27 where Ayamé basically swooned the entire time and Yuval said things like “No one else deserved to be found.”

So, are you Team Yuval or Team Oliver? Here is a little background on both of the men vying for Ayamé’s heart.

Who Is Yuval Ben-Hayun?

Content creator Yuval Ben-Hayun has an uncanny (and highly creepy) talent for finding people’s locations just from the tiniest details in their videos. I wasn’t joking about the whole Sherlock Holmes thing — he can find you anywhere. And while people may take that as a threat, Ayamé took Yuval’s decision to find her as basically a declaration of his love. He’s been tracking Ayamé’s moves with CIA-level precision, even leaving her cute little notes at her local coffee shop.

Who Is Oliver Mills?

Oliver Mills is from New Zealand, and is a tall and handsome glass of water. He’s been serenading Ayamé via TikTok with his sultry voice, flexing his muscles, and charming his way into her heart with very dreamy eyes. The guy even lip-synced, “The Girl is Mine” by Michael Jackson and Paul McCartney to declare his love. And I can’t even get a man to text me back.

Is The TikTok Love Triangle Real?

Because Ayamé and Yuval have been using a lot of the attention they’ve been getting to raise awareness about Palestine, people couldn’t tell if the “love triangle” was real or not. And while nothing in specific was confirmed or denied, it seems like Oliver is mostly playing around. But while Ayamé and Yuval started as a joke… after seeing them together on the podcast it’s starting to feel pretty damn real. I guess we’ll just have to wait to see how this relationship progresses. Fingers crossed they have the same fate as the TikTok tall couple and they start dating for real.
