A woman who claims she has the “world’s biggest mouth” has explained how the feature has made her famous on TikTok.

Samantha Ramsdell became a viral sensation due to her enormous mouth.

The 30-year-old medical sales rep, from Stamford, Connecticut, garnered 740,000 followers during coronavirus lockdown.

She decided to show off her singing and acting skills online, but soon found her facial feature attracted attention.

Samantha said: “Lost over 50 pounds two years ago and regained a ton of my confidence back.

“I started taking singing lessons, then posting my singing videos on Instagram."

Samantha added: “I fell in love with improv and comedy and started posting more of that on social media too.

“I started growing popularity over lockdown, I'd make a lot of funny face videos, comedy skits and singing parodies.

“But any video involving my mouth and the faces I can make always went crazy viral.

“One of my biggest videos was me responding to a comment someone left me asking if I feel insecure about my mouth.”

She responded with a clip of her holding her mouth wide open and said: "I used to be insecure, but it's a part of me, so now I just let my big mouth shine in the sun.”

In the past, the TikToker said she was insecure about being branded a "one trick pony".

She added: “I was like 'Hey! I'm posting way more than just my mouth, but my mouth just gets five times more views!

“It is a little frustrating sometimes because I wish I could also be known for my singing and comedy videos too, but hey, any press is good press!

“Also, I've learned long ago that people making mean comments says way more about them than me.

“Obviously, they are not doing well emotionally if they have to take the time to write mean things to me, so I bless them and move on!”

The young woman believes her enormous mouth is part of what makes her singing voice so exceptional.

Samantha commented: “I think it does make me a better singer – lots of amazing singers have huge mouths!

“Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger, Fantasia Barrino, Alanis Morrisette... I've also heard Justin Bieber has a big mouth too, so it has to be true!”

Samantha has even been asked the actual size of her mouth in inches, so viewers at home can truly understand how big it is.

She added: “You know what's funny, last I ‘measured’ (which is hilarious in itself) I'm like 3.5 inch wide and almost 4 inch tall.

"But I gotta get a better measuring tape.

“Let's just say it’s ginormous and I'm working on my application to Guinness as we speak.

“Snapchat also posted a big story how I have ‘The World’s Biggest Mouth’ so if Snapchat says so, it's gotta be true right?”

The performer worried that Covid would kill her career, but it seems to have been the making of her.

Samantha added: “TikTok actually pays their top creators now based on how many views and it's about 0.3cents per 1,000.

“It doesn't sound like a lot but some of my top videos have over 50 million views, so if you do the math, it ain't too shabby for eating subway sandwiches on camera!"

That's about $15,000 (£11,300) per video!
