A TikTok star who broke the Guinness World Record for having the largest female mouth has revaeled she had to ‘prove she’s had no surgery’ before bagging the award.
Samantha Ramsdell, 31, from Stamford, Connecticut, went viral last year after revealing on social media that her mouth can open an incredible 2.56 inches.
She has since been recognised by Guinness for breaking the record for world’s largest mouth gape of a female, and appeared on This Morning today – where she shoved an entire sandwich into her mouth at once.
Samantha, a medical sales representative, revealed that she’s been in talks with Guinness for over six months, and said there was a lengthy process to check her talent was ‘natural’.

‘I have been in contact with Guinness since January,’ said Samantha. ‘We’ve been going back and forth for over six months, they came out at the end of June, early July to take measurements and give me the official plaque.
‘It’s a lot of work, they have like two pages of guidelines. I had to get different types of measurements had to prove I had no surgery, it’s all natural, I’m healthy.’
When asked by hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford when she first noticed that her mouth was larger than usual, she explained: ‘I’ve pretty much known I had a big mouth since I’ve looked in the mirror.
‘If you look at baby pictures, my face has always been like 80 per cent mouth. But it wasn’t until social media and the kids of TikTok who were like, “Your mouth is scarily big”.’

Samantha originally started her social media accounts to show off her performance skills – never knowing that her facial feature would attract such attention.
In 2019, Samantha only had around 300 hundred followers on social media, but she now has a whopping 1.7 million dedicated fans on TikTok.
‘I have so much fun on TikTok,’ said Samantha. ‘It’s a really unique platform where it focuses on celebrating people you wouldn’t normally have. It’s really skyrocketed a lot of people I have a lot of fun and have grown a huge community.’
‘I lost over 50 pounds two years ago and regained a ton of my confidence back,’ Samantha previously said in November 2020.
One of Samantha’s biggest videos was her responding to a comment someone left her asking if she felt insecure about her mouth. Pictured, being awarded her Guinness World Record

‘I started taking singing lessons, then posting my singing videos on Instagram. I fell in love with improv and comedy, and started posting more of that on social media too.
‘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.’
‘One of my biggest videos was me responding to a comment someone left me asking if I feel insecure about my mouth.

‘I responded with a silly video; mouth wide open and saying “I used to be insecure, but it’s a part of me, so now I just let my big mouth shine in the sun!” That one boosted me to like 100,000 followers in August.
‘My next huge viral video was me doing the “I want to see your face glow red’ challenge which got me to almost 500,000.’
Appearing on This Morning in November 2020, Samantha revealed she now makes up to £11,000 per video thanks to her unusual talent – after being bullied for the size of her mouth as a child.
‘I turned it into my biggest asset,’ she explained. ‘It’s crazy, I never thought I would get the reactions that I do now.’
