Samantha Ramsdell, 30, became a social media sensation through lockdown, thanks to her bigger than average gob.
She even said her mouth may be larger than the current Guinness World Record of 3.75 inches from the upper to lower incisors - when she measured it she estimated hers was 'almost four inches'.
The sales rep, who lives in Connecticut, started her account to show off her performance skills, but after six months had racked up more than three quarters of a million followers.
Samantha said: "I made a TikTok account in fall 2019 but didn't start really consistently posting until Covid hit around April 2020.
"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."
She added that she makes good money from the videos too. She explained: "TikTok actually pays their top creators now based on how many views and it's about 0.3 cents 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!"
Although her mouth has been the cause of her success, Samantha does admit that it was frustrating for an aspiring performer.
She said: "Sometimes at the beginning, I was more offended when people called me a 'one-trick pony' about my mouth.
"I was like, 'Hey! I'm posting way more than just my mouth,' but my mouth just gets five times more views! Lol.
"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!"
Samantha believes her mouth is responsible for her singing voice, pointing out that Steven Tyler, Mick Jagger, Fantasia Barrino and Alanis Morrissette all have big mouths too.
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 [on] how I have 'The World's Biggest Mouth' so if Snapchat says so, it's gotta be true right?"
