With the latest December 2017 Snapchat update users are noticing random people showing up in Snapchat Stories. When swiping to the right and looking at the Discover section, users will see celebrities, brands and random people they do not know. They will also see people that they follow but do not follow them. There is really no way to determine what is showing up in this new algorithmic feed.
If you are seeing random people on your Snapchat Stories in the Discover tab you are not alone. Just because you are seeing someone in your Discover section, it does not mean you are following them or are friends with them. It could mean they are what Snapchat would deem someone you would be interested in.
