David Archuleta Shuts Down TikTok of Man Who Claims They Went on a Date

“I’m not saying that he’s a bad-looking guy, it’s just I have a different type,” Archuleta said.

Today LGBTQ+ pop singer David Archuleta took time out of his day to debunk an absolutely wild story a man told on TikTok about going on a date with him.

Emma Wahl is a TikToker who interviews people on the streets of New York City about the worst first date they’ve ever been on — and one young man told a VERY detailed story about going on a “coffee date with a singer guy.”

Someone showed Archuleta the video and his ears immediately perked up when he heard the man describe his date and was clearly talking about him. He told Emma that he went on a date with a guy who wouldn’t stop talking about how he was on a singing competition show when he was 16 and won second place and how annoyed he was that the person who took first place had the same first name as him.

“I wasn’t really that interested, but he kept showing me these videos of him singing and like performing his songs on the show,” he said.

Archuleta finished in second place on the seventh season of American Idol in 2008 losing to singer David Cook.


K i died when someone showed this to me so let me add some commentary

The man in the video went on to complain that his date brought a guitar on their coffee date and insisted on playing him a song.

“I was like, there are people around and you’re making noise,” he said of his date’s performance.

To debunk this mythical bad date, Archuleta made a TikTok video of his own. First, he said that he would never play guitar in public because he’s not very confident in his skills.

“My guitar skills are like Ariana Grande deciding to do a WWE match suddenly in a coffee shop,” he quipped. He then continued with another hilarious comparison, saying, “My guitar skills are like a dance contemporary duo where one of them has to lift the other one and the one being lifted is Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.”

The guy described his date’s coffee order as “eight pumps of caramel in one cold brew with two packs of sugar,” a fact that Archuleta also took issue with, saying, “I’m more of a bitter drink guy.”

Later in the original video, the man said that his date was “butthurt about losing this reality singing competition show.” Archuleta shot back saying that he’s “so self-conscious” of his time spent on TV that he would never bring it up, let alone brag about it.

After all of the insinuations that he was talking about Archuleta, the man in the first video then drops the bomb that the “mystery man” he’s describing sent him a text after the date asking for feet pics — plot twist!

“I would not ask for feet pics from anyone,” the “Crush” singer said, clarifying that he only asks for pictures of people’s faces when he’s going to meet them. “I’ll save the rest for when I get to know you and desire more.”

But apparently feet pics may still be on the menu for Archuleta who went on to say, “You can show me your feet after all that good stuff.”

The former Masked Singer competitor finished by saying that he never went on a date with the guy in the video and that he’s not even his type. Shots fired!

“I’m not saying that he’s a bad-looking guy, it’s just I have a different type,” Archuleta said. “You’ll tend to see me with more like Hispanic, Latino-type looking folk. This is my type, my roots.”

So did this coffee date really happen, or was it all just satire? You decide!
