People Are Blown Away By The Size Of This Guy’s Hands

The internet has been sent into a frenzy thanks to a video showing a bloke and his humungous hands.

The man holds up a crinkled note, which looks more like monopoly money at this point, in the clip and he says to the camera: “I’ve got a dollar.”

The video has racked up more than 12.8 million views on TikTok and people have flocked to the comment section to discuss the size of the man's mitts.


One user wrote: “real life wreck it Ralph!!!”

Another added: “This how my hands feel when I wake up in the middle of the night after sleeping on.”

A third said: “When he give you the finger, it added +50% mental damage.”

However, some users are concerned about the size of the man’s hands and questioned if it's attributed to an illness.


A worried TikTokker asked: “Respectfully, I gotta know, is it brute strength, or a disease?”

A woman added: “But does it hurt? Why do I feel like his hands are in pain.”

The man behind the video is Minnesota native Jeff Dabe, who is unsurprisingly an arm wrestler, and we feel so sorry for all those poor babies who compete against Dabe.


Dabe has always used his oversized limbs, which are recorded to be 49cm in circumference, to his advantage.

The Minnesota local adopted the nickname ‘Popeye’ in high school after one of his high school coaches took him to a local charity event to compete in his first arm wrestling title.

"I beat all the kids and then all the adults, and I kind of got hooked on it… Talked me into going to all the tournaments," he explained to Fox News.

"I wasn't sure about getting back into it at 48 [years old]. They ended up talking me into competing. I ended up winning and beating the guy who had the Minnesota title, so I was drawn right back into it.”


Many have expressed health concerns due to Dabe’s enormous hands, but The University of Minnesota conducted tests looking for possible signs of gigantism and elephantiasis, however couldn’t find evidence to support that claim.

Dabe also reassured that: “I can do everything just fine like everyone else. There's no way I can work on cars. I used to work on cars on the side. I liked to do it, it was relaxing to me.

"Other than that I haven't found much I can't do… The one thing I can't do is find good gloves."
