A woman who claims she has the “world’s biggest mouth” has explained how the feature has made her famous on TikTok.
Due to her gigantic mouth, Samantha Ramsdell became a viral sensation.
During the coronavirus lockdown, the 30-year-old medical sales rep from Stamford, Connecticut, earned 740,000 supporters.
She wanted to demonstrate her online singing and acting talents, but soon discovered that her face feature attracted attention.
Samantha said, “Two years ago, I lost over 50 pounds and regained a lot of trust.”
“I started taking singing lessons, then posting on Instagram my singing videos.”
Samantha added: “I fell in love with improvisation and comedy and began sharing more on social media as well.”
During lockdown, I started to rise in popularity, I would make a lot of funny face videos, comedy skits and singing parodies.
But every video of my mouth and the faces I can make has always gone madly viral.
“One of my biggest videos was that I reacted to a comment that someone left me asking me if my mouth felt insecure.”
She replied, keeping her mouth wide open with a clip, and said, “I used to be nervous, but it’s a part of me, so now I just let the sunshine with my big mouth.”
In the past, TikToker said that she was insecure about being called a “one-trick pony.”
“She went on to say, “I was like, ‘Oh! More than just my mouth, I ‘m writing, but my mouth just gets five times more views!
Sometimes it is a little frustrating because I wish I could also be recognised for my videos of singing and comedy, but hey, any press is good press!
I have discovered long ago that people who make rude remarks say far more about them than they do about me.
Obviously, if they have to take the time to write mean stuff to me, they are not doing well emotionally, so I bless them and move on!
The young woman feels that her big mouth is part of what makes her singing voice so excellent.
I think it makes me a better singer, “Samantha said.” A lot of great singers have big mouths!
Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger, Barrino’s Fantasia, Morrisette’s Alanis … I have heard that Justin Bieber, too, has a big mouth, so it must be real! The actual size of her mouth in inches has also been asked of Samantha, so viewers at home can really appreciate how large it is.
“She added:” You know what’s funny, I’ve last “measured” (which is funny in itself) that I’m 3.5 inches wide and almost 4 inches tall.
“But I have to find a better tape measure.
Let’s just say it’s ginormous and, as we talk, I ‘m working on my Guinness submission.
“Snapchat has also posted a huge story about how I have the ‘Biggest Mouth of the World,’ so if Snapchat says so, it has to be real, right?”
The performer was worried that her career would kill Covid, but it seems to have been her making.
TikTok actually pays their top creators now depending on how many views, and it’s around 0.3 cents per 1,000, “Samantha added.”
It doesn’t sound like a lot, but some of my top videos have over 50 million views, so it’s not too shabby to eat subway sandwiches on camera if you’re doing the math! That is around $15,000 per video (£11,300)!
