Many viewers have wondered if Manifest is based on a true story because it contains several fantasy elements.

The series follows the lives of a group of passengers who are reported dead after a plane goes missing but reappears five and half years later.

Viewers have frequently wondered if the show is inspired by the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 that happened in real in March 2014.

Is Manifest a true story?

Manifest is a fictional show that closely connects to the mysterious disappearance of Malaysian Airlines Flight 370. The disappearance puzzled millions of people when it was reported in March 2014.

The plane went missing en route to China from a Malaysian airport and was never found. The aircraft carried nearly 200 people, but none were ever found. Governments worked together on rescue missions, but nothing came of it.

Despite investigators’ assumptions about what happened, the true fate of Flight 370 remains unknown. 

And even though the missing Malaysian plane was not the inspiration for the series, it appears that it entered the development stage partly due to the tragedy, which made the story much more relevant.

What is the story behind Manifest?

There is no specific story behind the Manifest. In an interview, the writer of the show Jeff Rake said that Flight 370 has a “key part” in the story, even though he came up with the concept ten years ago.

Rake claimed he had the idea while thinking about “union” versus “separation” on a family trip to the Grand Canyon.

Later, he pitched his idea to others, but no one liked it. Then, seven years later, Malaysia Airlines occurred, and his crazy idea became a little more real and relatable. Now, he scripted a series based on a commercial airplane’s mysterious disappearance and subsequent reappearance.

In the series, Montego Air Journey 828 safely landed after a rocky but routine flight, relieving the crew and passengers. However, in those few hours, the world had aged five and half years, and their friends, families, and coworkers had abandoned hope and moved on, having mourned their loss.

Manifest season 4 is coming to Netflix

Manifest is making a comeback on Netflix. According to Deadline, the popular sci-fi show is renewed for a fourth and final season on Netflix following a fan-led campaign to #SaveManifest.

After NBC canceled the show and Netflix declined to pick it up, we first thought that Manifest was pretty much over for good, but a recent Deadline report is giving fans new hope.

The season 4 announcement was made on August 28, 2021. Netflix renewed Manifest two months after picking up the first and second seasons of the NBC show. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the show was watched by 25 million Netflix accounts in the United States and Canada in its first month.

Where Is Lil Tay Today? Truth Behind Her Viral 2023 Video

In 2018, Lil Tay went viral on social media, and everyone was talking about her.

She rose to prominence as a controversial online star by posting videos in which she boasted about allegedly having beautiful houses and automobiles, dropping out of Harvard, and amassing vast sums of money. At the time, her age was nine.

As her account and business evolved, she partnered with emerging rappers and used her outsized on-screen presence to achieve social media fame. Moreover, she was seen smoking a hookah, hanging out with rapper Chief Keef, and dancing with YouTuber Jake Paul.

However, all of a sudden, she disappeared after it was revealed that she was forced to do all of those things by her family. Since then, people have been wondering what happened to Lil Tay and where is Lil Tay today.

Recently, a person who looked like a controversial influencer went viral on TikTok. As a result, many believe that she is Lil Tay. 

Where is Lil Tay today in 2023?

Since people have been wondering where Lil Tay has been now in 2023, they snooped around on the internet. As a result, netizens found a TikTok user, @jaaninethahswee.

She looked like Lil Tay, so people naturally believed that she was the grown-up version of Lil Tay. However, the claim was swiftly debunked after Twitter user @JayCartere shared a screenshot of the girl’s TikTok page. 

According to the screenshot, the girl, who is assumed to be a grown-up version of Lil Tay, is known on TikTok as Jannine Thahswee. The controversial star’s age is another factual evidence that refutes the notion. 

She claimed to be nine years old in 2018. So now, as of 2023, her age would be fourteen.

Even though Thahswee looks similar to Lil Tay, she appears to be considerably older than a 14-year-old. She has around 8000 TikTok followers. 

She uploaded a video in 2020 in which she described how she and her partner met and how their love progressed over the course of two years. According to the video, Jannine was in 10th grade two years ago, in 2018, putting to rest any suspicions that this TikToker is not Lil Tay.

What happened to Lil Tay?

Lil Tay rose to notoriety in 2018 after posting dubious videos online in which she boasted about her fortune and regularly used expletives, leaving viewers concerned about the nine-year-vulgar old’s attitude.

That did not concern Lil Tay or her family, as Tay’s mother stated in an interview with Good Morning America that she supports anything her daughter decides to do. Her mother indicated that she would let her follow her dreams.

Jason, her older brother, looked nonchalant about the consequences of his sister’s terrible social media popularity. Other questions were made regarding Lil Tay’s well-being and parenting practices after a video surfaced showing her brother directing her what to say in front of the camera.

In an interview, Lil Tay’s father stated that before his daughter’s social media appearance became famous, he disapproved of most of her actions. He even sought legal advice to prevent his daughter from acting like that.

Her father believed these were damaging her bodily and emotional health and threatening her future. However, her father was also accused of being abusive.

Jason stated their father abandoned the family and only returned to profit off her sister’s internet popularity and money. There were also accusations that the controversial star got caught up in a custody fight between her parents and moved to Canada to live with her father, where her father and stepmother were violent to her.
