During a trip to the Bahamas, the ‘He’s All That’ Netflix movie star tried her luck with the TikTok handstand challenge, with a twist.

With a glorious beach in the background, Rae planted herself on her head to complete the handstand, before bending backward into a position not many people would be able to safely pull off.

The clip has been viewed over 21 million times, making it her most-watched of the year and best performing since April 2022.

In the comments, people were in disbelief about how she pulled it off. One fan said: “Love the look of the beach! I would’ve broke my head.” Another said: “Nah my back would be in a whole lotta pain after that.”

One other posted: “You did not know she was that flexible.”

What is the TikTok handstand challenge?

The TikTok handstand challenge was started by Bryce McKenzie, which tasks users with completing a successful handstand with Ian Asher’s TikTok sound running in the background.

Many who have taken part in the challenge – just like Addison Rae – have put their own unique twist on the everyday handstand. The crazier the take, the more the views (it would seem).

Addison’s is not even the top-viewed of the trend at the time of writing, as that crown goes to Charli D’Amelio with her submission on June 7. But with just a two million view gap, that could change quite quickly.
