Not a moment passes by on TikTok without a new trend-picking pace. There are all sorts of things taking place on these sites. For instance, a trend which has to do with dance and another which is funny, both can trend simultaneously.
Perhaps, this is the beauty of TikTok: it offers something for almost everyone at almost all times. However some times a popular trend can entail some uncertainties. These ambiguities perplex all the people who come across these. This in turn kick starts a quest that aims to find the answers to the questions related to that video.
“Chile” on TikTok:
Just a trend was making rounds on social media, especially on TikTok. There was a guy who was asked by a girl to pronounce something which sounded like Chile.
This was a funny video of sorts. In this video, a woman is asking a man to pronounce something. The response that the guy gives makes the funny sound funny.
In the lines below I am going to tell you about this video. Similarly, I will also talk about what does it really means. So let’s begin without further ado.
What Does Chile Mean?
You must be saying to yourself that it is easy. After all, you are comfortable with geographical questions, isn’t that correct? For you, Chile is a South American country and that’s it.
But the ‘Chile’ which is used in this video is something altogether different from Chile ‘the country’. So what does It mean on TikTok?

To understand the meaning of Chile we need to talk about the Chile video on TikTok a little bit. The Chile video was uploaded on TikTok in the year 2020. Here a woman asks an African American man to pronounce ‘Whew Chile’. The guy tried to pronounce it but it comes out quite funny.
This kick-started the ‘Chile’ trend. Since the first appearance, this trend has moved on like hell. So far hundreds of people have come up with their rendition of this video. Each video is funnier than the previous ones.
So far so good. But what about its meaning? It means child in a South American accent. Simply put it is pronounced as a child except that the ‘d’ at the end is silent.
Origin of “Chile” on TikTok:
So far I have told you some things. First, the word Chile used in this video isn’t about the South American country. Second, the video gained traction because of the fact that it was unintentionally funny.
But where did it exactly originate from? We know that it was used in the TikTok video but it originated way before this video.
It was first used by a television personality NeNe Leakes. She comes out of her car with the ‘Whew Chile’ on her lips. From that, we can infer that whew Chile is a catchphrase used to signify relief.
If someone says ‘whew Chile’, it simply means that the person has encountered relief. For instance, if you have had a hard time doing something but you finally manage to pull it off, you say ‘whew Chile’. Now that you know what it means, are you gonna use it in your daily life occasions?
In a Nutshell:
The Internet gives us all sorts of slang. Sometimes these slangs make it to our daily life usage. ‘Whew Chile’s can also make it big in this context.
It was started by NeNe Leakes, but it soon took TikTok by a storm. So far many people have come up with their take on this. In this article, we talked about it in depth.
