Olsen stated, “He starts to come over and I’m like, ‘is this my Wattpad moment? Am I about to find love among the treadmills?’

According to the TikTok video, the two conversed in gym talk when the stranger asks if he could put in his number in Olsen’s phone.

The stranger insisted Chris to finish his set while he exchanged contact info. Olsen stated, “I’m thinking he wants to watch me do my pull-ups.” But while he was doing his pull-ups, the guy was “typing away”

Soon after, the stranger quickly departed and left Olsen.

“As I’m finishing up, I go to my texts to text him ‘nice to meet you’. There’s no text. There’s no texts there. So now I’m like, what the f— did this man do on my phone?”

After looking through his phone, the TikToker noticed that his email had something from Venmo.

“He Venmo’d himself $20 and just said Merry Christmas.”

Olsen laughed off the situation and many in the comments thought the money was well worth it for the story in the end.

Lately, Olsen celebrated his birthday with Joshua Bassett and Meghan Trainor. The three of them marked their shared birthdays with what seemed to be an “all-pink” birthday celebration on December 22nd.

Hopefully 2023 does not have any other men who scam Olsen out of more money.
