A Toronto man films TikToks asking expensive homeowners the question we all want to know—what do they do to earn so much money?
Have you ever driven by an extravagant home and thought, "Who on Earth could afford to live there?" Well, you're not alone. Aaron Vankampen created an entire company, aptly named One Percent Homes, to answer this burning question we all seem to have. As a freelance location scout, Aaron knocks on one magnificent front door after another to simply ask, "What do you do for a living?"
Aaron films these straight-forward interactions and posts them on his TikTok account—with the homeowners' consent, of course. Lately, his videos have been gaining a lot of attention, racking up millions of views. And it's easy to see why. As he approaches mansion after mansion, usually with expensive cars sitting in the driveway, you're struck with an undeniable curiosity. How does someone afford that many Teslas?
The homeowners' answers vary wildly, so you don't know what to expect, either. Maybe they're a real estate lawyer, or maybe they're a stunt driver. You'll never know until you knock on the door and ask. Luckily, Aaron is out there getting the steps in and asking the questions for us.
You can watch some of his TikToks below. Prepare to be a tiny bit jealous!
What do you think about those answers? Which one of these crazy one-percent homes would you like to own if you could? Let us know in the comments! Personally, we would pick the castle.
