Tanya Rad Explains New Social Media Term ‘Ontas?’


Step aside thirst trap, "Ontas?" has arrived. There’s a new term floating around social media and Tanya Rad is here to explain it to us all.

As Tanya explained to Ryan Seacrest on-air on Tuesday, April 23, the word is a shortened version of the Spanish phrase “Dónde estás?” which means “where are you?”

It’s basically the new version of “u up?” aka a booty call …

Fans have been DMing their celebrity crushes with “Ontas?” and Diplo even slid into his own comments after posting a major thirst trap.


That said, Patty shared the term isn't anything new. She's been saying it since she was a kid. 😂 Listen back to the audio above for more.
