Airbnb Host Discovers ‘Bougie’ Guests Ate 22-Carat Gold-Trimmed Plates, Then Throw Them Away

An Airbnb host claimed his recent guests were so “candle” that they brought their own 22-karat gold-trimmed plates to eat, then quickly threw them away afterwards.

The host shared the discovery on his TikTok channel, @thevrconsultantsultans, after visiting the property in the Poconos, Pennsylvania earlier in December.

“They threw gold,” reads the on-screen caption. The property is “The Cozy Cabin”, as advertised on Blue Penguin Properties.

The description reads: “We offer a fully equipped kitchen with cooking essentials in addition to all dishes, utensils and cooking utensils.”

The woman, called Jenny Radick, told the camera: “Are you ready to see how candles your last AirBnB guests were, Lake House Edition?

“My guests were so bourgeois that they didn’t want to use our plates. They brought their own plates. That’s fine, that never happens, but do what you want.

“They brought their own plates, threw them away when they were done, and what kind of plates are they? 24-karat gold plates.

“Not just plates; plates, plates, plates, bowls. For example, should I rummage through this trash can?

She films herself going through the trash can, which shows plates with a floral pattern and a gold rim, which look relatively clean.

The stamp on the back indicates “the guaranteed quality mark of 22 carat gold”.

Talk to NewsweekRadick explained that two guests stayed over Christmas, as she theorized: “I guess the family of the guests brought ‘extra’ plates to greet everyone and forgot to take them home; then the threw away instead [of] leaving them.

“When I was throwing away the trash, I opened the bin outside and it was right on top!

“As I said, I believe the guest family brought extra plates for extra settings, they were washed afterwards and they couldn’t find anywhere to put them, store them or they forgot to bring them home, so they just threw them away.”

She confirmed that four large plates, five small plates and four bowls were left behind.

“We’ve never had disposable plates before! We have people throwing away some of our stuff if they break it, they try to put it in the trash so we don’t see it’s broken. We We’re pretty good at noticing missing things, but people can throw in whatever they want of their own stuff.

“When I looked on the back and saw it was written in 22k gold plated I just laughed and laughed. I couldn’t believe they didn’t just wrap them up and take them to home. But someone mentioned in the comments that you can’t put them in the microwave or they’ll spark,” she added.

Her music video has amassed nearly 6 million views and can be seen hereas people shared suggestions on what she should do with the dishes.

Christina Breu advised: “Take plates from them, wash them and resell them.”

EtheridgeHouseHold commented, “Girl, take them out of the trash, wash them and sanitize them! And yes rummage through that trash! They left it, now it’s yours.”

Karendewhirtst273 felt, “They threw away Grandma’s plates.”

Jessica Dunek thought, “They saved plates by going to town so they didn’t have to wash dishes.”

“There’s a first time for everything and it would make my dumpster dive for it all. These plates seem to be worth a pretty penny,” Beboppin521 admitted.

In the comments, when asked if she ended up keeping the plates, the host replied, “Oh yes I did!”

Radick said Newsweek: “I saved them! They are in my office waiting for me to decide what to do with them. I was thinking of doing another TikTok and doing a raffle and sending them to someone who wants them.

“I don’t think I’m going to sell them, I think it’s more of a fun question mark as to why they were there, why they cleaned them before throwing them away, why they kindly placed them at the trash. I’ve thrown plates before and it’s my favorite thing to smash them in the trash.”

In a follow-up video, she claimed she went to the trash saying, “I found a painting, a box of cookies, snowboard boots with a binder and I also found a sheet covered in poo. What can you do. It’s AirBnB.”

In another video, she filmed herself eating a cookie from the gold-trimmed floral plates.

The plates are thought to come from Canonsburg Pottery, founded by John George in his namesake town in Pennsylvania.

The Worth Point website explained that the company was well known for its “[e]antique tableware [which] had hand painted designs, many with floral designs and gold or colored lining.”

Various sites sell the dinnerware, with a 31-piece set on Etsy for $300. The company officially ceased operations in 1978.
