So Steve got a little bit lonely and decided to record silly videos of himself called 'Cooking With Steve' and viewers are loving it! His posts usually get around  200,000 views and he's had 5.2m views in total, making him an official TikTok star.

When he was asked about his later life social media career, Austin said that "I have no children or grandkids, this has been such a joy to me and it makes me feel not so alone and loved. Most of the comments say they love me and I'm the best thing on TikTok. I feel very blessed."

He continued: "I'm self-taught as far as doing my video work on the camera and lighting and such and understanding how to do TikTok. If I don't understand something I Google it or see if a video on YouTube has a subject on it". He also said that most of his videos aren't even planned and that it just happens naturally.

Well, however it happens, its clearly working for Steve and if TikTok makes him feel that much less lonely, then why the heck not.
