I'm having a hard time accepting that you can make millions a year just by doing some stupid dances on TikTok, but I mean, the success proves them right. Here are the most followed TikTok accounts, not all of them do dances.
Reaching 100 million subscribers is a big freakin deal. I mean, look at PewDiePie, or Mr. Beast. Those two spend a long ass time reaching their 100 million.
On TikTok, it seems to be a little easier to amass a big following. Here are the five most-followed accounts on TikTok.
5. Will Smith
Yup, the Prince of Bel-Air himself is TikTok famous. He quickly jumped on the hype train and managed to climb to the position of fifth most followed account on TikTok with a whopping 72.2 million followers.
He reached fifth place in April 2022, right after his slapping performance at the Oscars (I had to do it). Maybe the social media attention of the incident helped him a little towards TikTok fame?
4. Addison Rae
And here we have our first dancing queen. With 88.6 million followers, Addison Rae is the fourth most famous person on TikTok.
She used her fame to network even outside the platform, signing deals with Netflix, launching her own fragrance, she even appeared in a Google/Samsung ad for god's sake! How far being hot, um, I mean talented, can get you.
Nah, I'm just kidding, it takes a lot of work and smart decisions to get to where she is now. Don't sue me, Addison, please!
3. Bella Poarch
Here we go, number 3 baby! This spot is reserved for Bella Poarch.
Bella launched into the top 5 at lightning speed, overtaking Addison Rae with her massive following of 91.1 million. Her content is mainly gaming related comedy, but her massive breakthrough happened when she lip-synced the song "M to the B" by Millie B. This video pretty much kick-started her whole carrier and made her one of the biggest stars on TikTok
2. Charli D'Amelio
Good Ol' Charlie! A veteran on TikTok at just 18 years old, Charli D'Amelio has been one of the biggest creators on TikTok since, well, since forever. She was the platform's first big star and even appeared in a Super Bowl commercial.
For a long time, she set the standard on TikTok with her dance videos and just dominated. Now she is second place, but with her 145.1 million followers, you can't just count her out.
1. Khaby Lame
Here we are, baby, number one! And who else could it be than the Italian sex symbol with the luscious lips, Khaby Lame.
His main content is reactions to TikTok "life-hacks" that overcomplicate tasks, to which Lame reacts with the more simple version.
His face, while doing so, will haunt me in my dreams! No, honestly I can't bear to look at it any longer. I've seen it too many times! His fame is just too much nowadays.
It seems like I'm the only one that's thinking that way, as his follower count shows is at a freakish 148.3 million. My man is proof that all it takes is an idea, and the dedication to stick with it!
He is the king of TikTok, and probably will remain so for a long time. Long live the king!
