Eli Rallo wears many hats: podcaster, TikTok star, NYC influencer, journalist, and now, author. 

Eli Rallo rose to internet fame after combining a variety of snacks, specifically gluten free snacks, into a large jar in order to get a jar full of both savory and sweet treats. Now, Rallo is known for her advice lists and her “Ins” and “Outs” of each month. 

I bet you didn’t know that electric scooters were out this February and fiber supplements are in. 

Rallo has historically posted her writing and her poetic prose to her Instagram, so  it came as no surprise when she announced she was releasing a book in 2023. 

In Rallo’s debut novel, “I Didn’t Know I Needed This: The New Rules for Flirting, Feeling, and Finding Yourself”, Rallo spills her tips, tricks and advice, on topics ranging from relationships, dating, sex and friendships.  

Rallo hosted a live show in Washington, D.C., on Jan. 27., celebrating her new novel with her readers. 

Rallo started the show by reading an excerpt from her book about friendship. Following the reading, she brought out her best friend,Veronica Riscucci, a self proclaimed pop culture expert. The two friends played interactive smash or pass with pop culture references with the audience, with iconic pop culture moments such as “Adele Dazeem” and “Glee Britney.” 

After Veronica departed the stage, Eli brought out Haley and Jazz, who are also NYC influencers. The two influencers are known for their comical story times and brutally honest stories. 

Eli and the duo played truth or drink, while answering inside scoop all of the fans were excited to hear. 

Rallo is not afraid to touch difficult topics in order to make her audience feel safe. Rallo’s shows, social media pages, and direct messages are a safe place for all things, situationship advice, IUD talk and friendship problems.
