A woman who has been given the title of ‘world’s largest mouth’ online has left viewers stunned by cramming not one but two whole doughnuts inside it — and still managing to close her lips.
Samantha Ramsdell, 30, from Connecticut in the US, showed off her bizarre talent on UK TV show This Morning while stunned hosts Davina McCall and Philip Schofield watched on.
As a warm-up, Samantha, a medical sales representative, easily popped a whole apple in her 9.25cm wide mouth before turning her attention to the baked treats.
“Look at the girth!” Davina exclaimed as Philip and Samantha both attempted to suppress their giggles.
Now an aspiring actor and singer, Samantha was once bullied for her bigger-than-average mouth but, thanks to TikTok, it’s become a huge money-maker.
“I turned it into my biggest asset,” she said. “It's crazy, I never thought I would get the reactions that I do now.”
After joining the social media platform in July 2019, Samantha now boasts 875,000 followers and commands up to AUD$20,000 per video.
She no longer feels self-conscious about her head-turning facial feature — which she fondly refers to as ‘BAM’ or ‘Big A** Mouth’ — instead celebrates it in funny skits and challenges sent in by her fans.
Samantha earned a few more fans following her This Morning appearance, with several viewers taking to Twitter to share their praise and delight.
“Samantha’s biggest attribute is her wonderful personality. Smiling face with open mouth. Sod the bullies!” wrote one.
“Can Samantha become a weekly regular on #ThisMorning?” another asked.
One was just keen to know what type of smudge-proof lipstick she uses.
“Never mind how many donuts #Samantha can fit in her mouth... I want to know what lipstick she uses cause it doesn't even smudge,” they asked.
Another user compared her to the infamous Batman villain, the Joker.
“#ThisMorning Samantha and her BAM She could totally female Joker!” they wrote.
Samantha said that she’ll be reaching out to the Guinness Book of World Records to see if she’s a contender for the biggest mouth. Angolan man Francisco ‘Chiquinho’ Domingo Joaquim was declared as having the widest mouth at 17 cm (6.69 in) in 2010.
