Top 20 most followed TikTok accounts: Charli D’Amelio, Addison Rae & more
From dancing trends to pranks, you never know what the next viral video will be on TikTok. A lot of these viral trends usually start with one of the bigger creators on the app. But who are the most followed accounts on TikTok?
TikTok has established itself as a perfect place for videos to go viral, reaching millions of users, and can make a superstar out of anyone overnight.
The platform is now available in over 150 markets across the world in 75 different languages, with the past year looking like the most successful year yet for the application.
With so many lip-sync videos, comedy sketches, and various other content, people are easily hooked – despite the app almost getting banned in the United States back in September 2020, and still facing the potential of bans now.

Most-followed TikTok accounts (November 2023)
With so many people making accounts for the platform all over the world, there are some names you’ll instantly recognize on this list, but there are a few surprises too – and it’s crazy to see how many followers some people have managed to accrue in short periods of time.
If there’s one name almost as synonymous with TikTok fame as Charli D’Amelio, it’s Addison Rae. She is best known for her dance choreography videos, and has built an immensely popular YouTube following off the back of her TikTok success.
It’s been reported that she makes $8.5m a year, though those earnings aren’t solely based on TikTok alone – and it’s only looking up for the young star. The star appeared in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has signed a multi-film deal with Netflix after the release of the streaming platform’s ‘He’s All That’ movie, as well as launching her own line of fragrances and Screen Break, a skin mist. She’s also signed on to the upcoming movie, ‘Fashionista’.
Her follower count has stopped growing in 2023 though, and is even dropping slightly.
5. MrBeast — 89 million TikTok followers
Jimmy ‘MrBeast’ Donaldson is a YouTuber with over 130 million subscribers, and he is rapidly increasing his popularity on TikTok, too, becoming the fifth most followed TikTok account in January 2023.
On TikTok, Jimmy and his friends have posted videos doing anything from participating in some of the most viral TikTok trends, to doing mini versions of challenges and concepts, you might typically find on his YouTube channel.
MrBeast is well known for his huge projects like his Squid Game recreation which blew up in 2021, as well as for his philanthropy. With the rate he’s gaining followers, it looks like he could be set to continue to rise through the ranks.
Skyrocketing to fame in under a year, Bella Poarch has amassed a huge following at lightspeed. The American-Filipino star started their TikTok account in April 2020 and now sits at over 90 million followers, also having overtaken Addison Rae as the top 3rd most-followed TikToker.
Prior to fame, the starlet served in the United States Navy. Now, she’s well known for her TikToks. Starring in her very own music videos for ‘Build a Bitch’, ‘Dolls’, and ‘Inferno’, she’s also featured in Sub Urban’s music video for ‘Cirque’, Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty Vol. 3 fashion show, and also signed on as a HyperX brand ambassador.
Like Addison, Bella’s follower count has dropped in 2023.
While no longer in the top spot, Charli D’Amelio is still the queen of TikTok in second place.
At just 18 years old, her rise to the top has been nothing short of spectacular. Alongside her incredible success, she has already garnered over 9.0 million YouTube subscribers, collaborating with the likes of Noah Schnapp, and Marshmello.
D’Amelio exploded onto the scene with her videos of dance choreography. She even ended up being the first star on the app to appear in a Super Bowl commercial, an impressive accomplishment no matter which way you try to slice it. She has also starred in Chase Hudson’s music video for ‘America’s Sweetheart’.
Beyond her long stretch as the most-followed account on TikTok, before being surpassed, Charli also became the first person to reach 10 billion likes on the platform.
Creating reactions to many other videos, such as one of the platform’s most-liked videos in which he responds to someone’s method of peeling a banana, Lame has also overtaken the likes of Dixie D’Amelio, Zach King, and Bella Poarch insanely fast.
The star’s popularity doesn’t look like it’ll slow down, either. There’s every chance he could remain the undisputed king of TikTok for years to come.
