You need to be on guard when your girlfriend is a popular social media influencer, as AFL star Caleb Poulter recently found out the hard way in a prank that left him up in arms -heart.
The 20-year-old has earned a new lease on life at the Western Bulldogs this season after being delisted by Collingwood after two years and is enjoying life with long-time partner Sam Guggenheimer.
The Melbourne-based influencer has amassed a massive audience of nearly 200,000 followers on TikTok with nearly 15 million reactions to her light-hearted and relatable content.
Now she’s roped in her boyfriend – with the AFL star stitched up in glorious fashion.
Western Bulldogs star Caleb Poulter fell for the prank staged by his girlfriend Sam Guggenheimer.
Poulter and Guggenheimer are a glamorous AFL couple and fans can’t wait to see more of their antics on his social media
Guggenheimer decided to borrow an idea from MAF star Evelyn Ellis, who pranked her boyfriend Duncan into thinking they had won a $50,000 ketchup deal.
The problem was, they had to film the promotional video on the same day, which led to hilarious results as Duncan attempted to choke down the brand’s smoky barbecue sauce.
They convinced Poulter so much that they landed a $50,000 sponsorship deal with Australian brand MasterFoods and launched barbecue sauce – which Poulter is not a fan of.
Despite his distaste for the product, Poulter duly styled his hair and prepared to film the video for his partner.
It took Coulter three attempts to successfully keep the barbecue sauce in his mouth as he kept spitting it into the sink.
“Should I act like I like it,” Poulter asked?
“Yeah, I said you were obsessed with barbecue,” she replied.
“If you need to spit it out, I’ll just delete it.”
“Can I spit it out every time?” » asked Coulter, clearly uncomfortable.
“No, at least try to swallow it once,” she replied to his heavy disappointment.
‘Swallow it?’ » he asked incredulously.
“Baby, it’s $50,000,” Guggenheimer reminded him.
And so the prank began – with hilarious results.
Just the fact that Poulter pretended to admit to barbecue sauce made the couple laugh several times before they even tried it.
The Bulldogs star, however, remained confident when told he now has to eat a whole tablespoon without grimacing.
“I will do it with ease,” he said.
But no sooner had the spoon entered his mouth than Poulter was retching into the sink.
“Actually, I’m going to throw up, you know that. These are not fake gags,” he said.
The second attempt went as well as expected, with Poulter’s head diving straight into the sink while Guggenheimer laughed hysterically.
“It’s disgusting,” he said.
Nonetheless, he was convinced to attempt a third attempt at the challenge.

Poulter is a regular on his girlfriend’s TikTok videos and fans love seeing them having fun online with their relatable content.
This time it was a great success. He managed to inhale the full tablespoon of barbecue sauce, keep a straight face, and even smile for the camera before the big reveal.
“And this has all been one big prank,” Guggenheimer said as Poulter went straight back to the sink.
Fans couldn’t get enough of the couple’s antics, with one posting: “The absolute determination Caleb had on that last attempt” with laughing emojis.
“Oh my GOD I can’t begin to explain how funny this was to me,” another posted.
“I’m honestly obsessed with you guys, you’re so funny,” another follower replied.
“This is seriously the best thing I’ve ever watched,” added another.
