A passenger has gone viral on TikTok after trying to work out who a mystery celebrity on her plane was.

Sometimes you never know who you are going to bump into at the airport or on a flight.

There have been countless stories of passengers unexpectedly sitting next to random celebrities on their journey.

However, it can be embarrassing if you can’t quite put your finger on the famous face you’re looking at.

Check out this flight attendant ‘spice up’ the pre-flight demonstrations below…

Influencer Paige Craig took to TikTok to ask her 1.1 million followers for some help to see if they recognised this popular person.

In the short clip, which has been viewed 31.7 million times, she tilts her camera to a man sitting near her on the flight as he is looking down.

The video says: “Can someone tell me who this man is because people keep taking pics with him and I’m too scared to ask him who he is.”

The caption adds some additional information, as it reads: “Other information – he speaks Spanish and is a very nice man. Thank you for your service.”

Viewers took to the comments to suggest who the mystery man could be.

“Ryan Reynolds,” claims one person.

“Jake Johnson from New Girls?” asks someone else.

A third thinks it is WWE wrestler LA Knight.

Another believes it is actor and Angelina Jolie’s ex-husband Billy Bob Thornton.

While they are all good predictions, they are wrong as a majority of the comments informed Craig that it is in fact Mexican actor Eugenio Derbez.

“That’s Eugenio Derbez he speaks English don’t be shy talk to him,” writes one person.

Someone else adds: “He is like the Mexican Jim Carrey.”

Another viewer says: “Eugenio Derbez. Mexican comedian/actor who is now making movies in the US.”

A fourth comments: “He is a really famous Mexican actor omg he is hilarious.”

He is best known for starring in the Angry Birds movie and the Oscar-winning film CODA.

Derbez also provided the voice-over for the Spanish version of some of the most popular movies such as Shrek – where he voiced Donkey – and Mulan – where he was the voice of Mushu.

It seems that Craig’s post caught the attention of the Overboard actor as he responded to her in a social media post of his own – which she shared on her TikTok.

Derbez says: “Hi Paige, let me introduce myself. My name is Eugenio Derbez and I’m basically an actor and director.”

The Jack and Jill actor then showed a compilation of clips from some of his most famous roles before throwing Paige’s question right back onto her.

“Because people keep following her, she has more than one million followers on TikTok.”
