These Are The Most Popular Celebrities On TikTok, Ranked By Followers

Over the past few years, social media has changed the way we determine a celebrity’s status. Before internet fame became a thing, a person would need to score a blockbuster box office hit, sell millions of albums, or appear on a well-known TV series/sitcom to reach the status of a well-known celeb.

All of this is easier today thanks to the internet, though. TikTok, a viral video-sharing social media platform, has birthed several teen sensations, like Charli D’Amelio and Addison Rae. But how do celebs measure up on this new wave of social media? We’ll be ranking the most popular “traditional” celebrities on TikTok, from Justin Bieber to Will Smith.

10 Justin Bieber (21 Million)

Justin Bieber promotes his music and his everyday life with his wife Hailey on TikTok. In fact, the internet played a big part in Bieber’s career. Before reaching such huge followings on TikTok, young Bieber got his start as a YouTube sensation. His cover videos landed in Scooter Braun and Usher’s hands in the late 2000s and gained him a recording deal.

9 Gordon Ramsay (22 Million)

Just make a video of the worst food you could ever make, tag the chef on TikTok, and he’ll roast you in front of his 22.7 million followers. His daughter, Tilly Ramsay, is more of a wholesome side. She posts everyday life in the Ramsay household to her 8.6 million followers, and even once pranked her dad!

3 The Rock (33 Million)

Who wants some gym motivation? Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is here to rock your morning and pump you to exercise.

Speaking of his personal life, the powerhouse singer is now expecting a child from his relationship with Jena Frumes.

“TikTok was more of a dance app, and I tried a challenge or two. But because I was at home, I started to experiment with it. More than half of the top TikTok videos are comedy, so I’d post things and be like, ‘OK, they don’t respond to this, but they seem to like that,’ and learned what made it tick,” the singer explained how TikTok “resurrected” his career.

1 Will Smith (48 Million)
