TikTokers erupt over Iowa State Fair’s ‘husband-calling contest’

A TikTok video is going viral for showcasing the Iowa State Fair’s “husband-calling” contest, featuring a compilation of women shouting out their husbands’ names.

The grand prize? Five dollars. 

“Bob! Robert!” one woman, the fifth place winner, shouted into the microphone repeatedly, urging her husband to “hurry up.”

“Daryl!” another wailed clearly.

A third, Bonnie Swalell Eilert, who landed the whopping $5 first place prize, shouted, “Roy! Do you hear me? Get yourself in here right now!”

“Come on! You know you’re gonna be late again and you know that I want to get there on time,” she added.

While some of the voices were less discernible; others sounded more like yodeling.

The video from @rhinestonecowboy amassed 17 million views in six days and showcased not only the humorous lengths wives will go to in getting their husbands to “listen” – but to also showcase their vocal capabilities in a lighthearted way.

“Some good ol’ fashioned “husband calling” at the iowa state fair,” the user captioned the video.

“How are people not laughing in the audience?” a third commenter asked, while a fourth user jokingly wrote, “My fiancé’s name is Roy. I’m taking notes.”

“Yep this is Iowa for you,” one said.

“Sadly, as an Iowan, this is real. Welcome to the Iowa State Fair,” another chimed in.
