This year’s annual Janadriyah Festival, naturally, entertained the entire Kingdom in more ways than one. This time around, a Saudi man selling kleeja (Saudi dish) at the festival became a trending topic on Twitter for his seemingly good looks.
Women tweeted photos of him during the festival from afar, eventually getting the hashtag #بايع_الكليجا to form.
The Twitter posts mostly consist of people in awe of his striking appearance
A new tweet, adding to the hashtag, is posted almost every two seconds
Tweets have been pouring in non-stop all Monday.
Paparazzi-style shots of him during the festival surfaced from hundreds of Tweeps
Fan-girling to its extreme.

And although a lot agreed on his aesthetics, like…
However, not all women shared the same view
With many others saying the situation was overrated and getting a little out of hand.

They even managed to find him and ask if he was married
“I am Mansour…and we’ve met before…” (to the guy)
The interviewer says “Before anything…are you married or not? To which he replied, “No.”
This situation has blown up so much it was featured on Al Arabiya
العربية التي فقدت ثقة غالبية المجتمع السعودي في مصداقية ومهنية وموضوعية ماتقدمه إتجهت لتسوق نوع أخر من الأخبار السخيفة التافهة التي تحاول من خلالها نشر التفاهات وإشغال المراهقين بها وشرعنة كل فعل مخل بالأداب العامة ! pic.twitter.com/so4jengRB8

A day in the life of Twitter.
We just want to know, genuinely, was the kleeja delicious though?
