It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s the world’s largest mouth - if there ever was one!
Those who’ve scrolled through TikTok have undoubtedly come across at least one of Samantha Ramsdell’s videos. It’s the typical content you get with a twist - great style, sense of humor, talented singer, and the largest mouth in the world. In fact, her lips are so generously voluptuous that dear Samantha has landed herself inside the Guinness World Records book.
From early on, Samantha’s endowed lips were more than obvious - but she didn’t seem to inherit her ‘curves,’ as no one in her family shared that big of a mouth. Growing up, Samantha had experienced her fair share of bullying, yet, it didn’t take her long to completely shift her perception of being the big-mouthed to being the unique-mouth girl.
When Samantha first started posting on TikTok, she never thought that her biggest insecurity would ultimately earn her a sublime spotlight. Even though she might have assumed to have the world’s biggest pout, there was only one way to make the statement official, outside TikTok.
Guinness representatives met with Samantha and Dr. Elke Cheung who used digital calipers to measure her mouth’s gape. The representatives averaged the data and called it in - Samantha’s 6.52cm mouth gape was one for the records!
“Being 31 and being able to get a record for something that really I was so insecure about, something that I wanted to keep so small, it’s great because now it’s like one of the biggest, best things about me,” Samantha had stated in an interview for the world records book.
Following high school, Samantha had the ambition to become a Broadway singer. Singing had always felt compelling to her, she even intended to make a career out of it. But, when her family advised her to go to college and find a steady job instead, Samantha followed suit.
Over the lifespan of a few years, Samantha had worked a decent corporate job and lived the life her parents envisioned on her behalf. When dissatisfaction with her own life came knocking on the door, she was 28 years of age, and ready for a complete turnover.
Samantha went back to singing and building her music career in flying colors. But as luck would have it, just when things started taking off - the COVID-19 pandemic struck. Samantha, however, was way ahead of the crisis and in the midst of the lockdown, she decided to take her talents to TikTok - and the rest is history!
Today, Samantha keeps on building her audience, mainly on TikTok. Entertainment aside, Samantha also wants to become a role model for those who struggle to accept themselves for the unique individuals they are. What’s more, she advocates for those who are trying to find their shining light, despite and alongside their insecurities.
“I really hope that my story can inspire people and make them think, if Sam can do it, I can do it too.” - Samantha will continue to pursue her music career and we’re sure more people will get to witness her talents beyond her TikTok stardom.
