Los Angeles comedian and actress Annie Bond worked as a waitress "at a busy Los Angeles restaurant for five years," and as you can imagine, saw a fair amount of rich and famous many of us only dream of meeting.
So in a series of TikTok clips that racked up thousands of views, with part 1 amassing a whopping 1.7 million views, she laid it all out on the table and ranked the A-listers by giving them a score.
And while Lady Gaga, the queen of heckin’ everything, got a well-earned “five million out of ten,” some celebrities were not that fortunate. So let’s see who’s rude and who’s just too nice, according to Annie, who saw them up from very close.
Bored Panda reached out to Annie Bond, a comedian and actress originally from Austin, TX who’s been living in LA for 7 years now behind the viral TikTok video. Annie told us that she really loved her coworkers and the restaurant so much. “It was an exciting place to work and definitely kept me on my toes and taught me so much about food, wine, and people.”
When asked if serving famous people is somehow different than usual customers, the former waitress said that “They're just people too!” “It can be a bit harder to get the attention of the table to take an order when a celeb is at it, but at the end of the day, it's just people getting food.”
Most importantly, Annie said, “Your job is to make sure they feel comfortable and have a good time! They get approached all the time, so try and treat them like you would anybody else. If it is someone you really admire, wait until they are leaving to say anything! I usually chicken out.”

And when it comes to faux pas you shouldn’t do while interacting with celebrities, Annie said it’s “definitely trying not to scream or pass out,” and added: “I accidentally walked face first into Jared Leto once on a busy day and thankfully he was really nice about it.”
Annie concluded that with her video, she just wanted to share “the honest experiences I had and the ratings are based on that experience and not the value of the human being!”
Having said that, she added that “obviously we all have bad days—even rich and famous people! But I do think we should always be kind to waitstaff, even when we are in a bad mood for whatever reason. I am also a young breast cancer survivor and love connecting with other survivors!”

It’s not the first time influencers have used the power of social media to rank celebrities they've served. Previously, the TikToker named Laura Mesrobian, who’s an actor and a server in New York City, shared similar observations in a video which went viral with 1M views.
Among famous A-listers was Jake Gyllenhaal, who got a 7/10. “Yes, he's gorgeous. Yes, his eyes will pierce your soul. But, kind of whiny. Really likes pinot noir and french fries. Always has friends. Somehow never paid, but he was pretty fun,” Laura stated.
Up next was Julianne Moore, who, according to Laura, was "Beautiful, classy, and sweet. One of the few celebrities to look you in the eye and say, 'Thank you.' Great skin. Really tiny. Joy overall." Hence, a solid 8.

Moreover, Laura’s colleague at the same restaurant served Hillary Clinton, but she shared the experience: “It was post-election. She had been through it. I was thinking maybe she'd want red wine or something relaxing. Hillary Clinton was drinking tequila sodas.” The friend gave the politician “9/10 for drink choice,” and “2/10 for war hawk policies."

Prior to Laura, another TikToker named Julia Carolan has gone viral for spilling some major tea about celebrities that visited the restaurant she worked at.
The 23-year-old former restaurant hostess was especially unforgiving to Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey, who received a surprisingly low “rating” out of 10 for her multiple interactions with the model. “This is gonna be controversial,” Carolan said of Baldwin in her TikTok video. “I’ve met her a handful of times and every time, she was not nice.” She added: “I really wanna like her, but I have to give her a 3.5 out of 10. Sorry.”

But not long after, Baldwin herself came across the video and even took to the comments to address Carolan’s rating and apologize to her personally. “Just came across this video, and wanted to say sorry if I’ve ever given you bad vibes or a bad attitude,” she wrote. “That’s not ever my intention!”
According to Carolan, Baldwin’s friend, fellow model Kendall Jenner, was also “cold for the most part” and got a rating of 4/10.
