You could say 2020 was the year TikTok truly went mainstream.
The app is now littered with celebrities — like A-list actors, rappers, and reality TV stars. But true TikTok fans know the real celebrities are the ones who were made on the app.
Here's a list of the top 10 TikTok creators of 2020, from TikTok itself. It's not just based on follower count, but also "total engagements on the app including views, creations, growth and likes," TikTok said.
10. Noah Beck
Chriselle Lim is a Korean American influencer and stylist who is better known as your rich mom. If you like gushing over expensive designer clothing and accessories and involved skincare regimens, Lim has you covered. Her two daughters, Chloe and Colette, also frequently appear.
8. Michael Le
Hyram is a dedicated YouTuber, but he actually has more followers on TikTok than on YouTube. He's a skincare guru and made a living reacting to other people's skin routines, as well as creating regimens for fellow influencers.
