PARAMOUNT, Calif. — A convicted murderer went viral on TikTok after hosting a "cooking show" inside his prison cell.

Jeron Combs, 31, who has been in prison since he was 18 years old, is serving 70 years plus life in prison for first-degree muder and attempted murder, the Daily Mail reported. In his now-viral TikTok video, Combs filmed himself using preserved packs and cans of ingredients. The meals are cooked on a makeshift grill — created with his metal bed and a hot plate. 

"I decided to cook because it's better than what they feed us," Combs said. "We get food packages from the canteen, so we can order packaged food in. I cook burritos, tacos, quesadillas, rice bowls, stir fry, burgers, tostadas and bacon. Burritos are my favorite, because I have been cooking them for so long."

His TikTok account now has 1.5 million likes.
