TikTok is a video-sharing social media platform that is taking the internet by storm. This app allows users to create videos easily using filters, text, and background music. The feature that makes TikTok stand out is that users can use the sounds of other creators. This social media platform changed the way we produce videos and proves that anyone can be a creator if they are equipped with the right tools.

You might have heard that TikTok is all about dancing and lip-syncing videos, and that’s not everyone’s cup of tea. While the app is indeed filled with users dancing on bops like Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time or lip-syncing to iLL Wayno’s Eyes. Lips. Face, it is also a haven for comedy skits and tutorials.

This blog post will guide you through popular creators you need to follow to make your TikTok experience entertaining and interesting!

Addison Easterling, known as Addison Rae, is one of the top TikTok dancers.

You need Joshua’s cooking videos in your life. He teaches his audience how to make basic dishes like omelettes to prepare more complicated meals like Beef Wellington. His recipes won’t only encourage you to ditch takeaways and embrace the art of cooking, but you’ll also be entertained because his videos are always fun to watch!

Jonas Brothers / @jonasbrothers

If you were - and still are - a hardcore Jonas Brothers fan like me, you might want to give them a follow on TikTok. They not only post teasers for their songs, but also show the interactions that they have when they're not on stage. Their feed is basically like Jonas Brothers: The Movie, but is instead a combination of short videos. They recently recreated iconic scenes from Camp Rock, and I can't stop laughing.

Riley / @rileyhubatka

Riley is undoubtedly the queen of POV videos. Her content will make you giggle and take you on a trip down memory lane because many of her comedy skits are about things we all did when we were children.

TikTok is not all about dance videos and comedy skits. Some people create amazing content that boosts your knowledge, and Michael McBride is one of them! Michael’s videos and fueled with historical and cultural facts that high school did not teach you. So, if you want to enrich your knowledge and impress people with interesting facts, go ahead and watch Michael’s videos.

Zach King / @zachking



I mustache you a question: Is your favorite part of Cinnamon Toast Crunch the cereal or the milk at the end?Get #CTCCinnamilk at MilkBarStore.com #ad

If you love magic tricks, then you must give Zack King a follow. His videos never fail to surprise me. A filmmaker and a social media personality, Zach began his career on YouTube in 2011 and moved to Vine in 2013. So, yes, he was famous before his TikTok debut. If you want inspiration to create cool video effects, then make sure to check out his videos!

Mitchell Crawford / @mitchell



Family Roadtrips?

Mitchell perfectly impersonates moms, dads, private school students, older siblings - you name it. He must pay a lot of attention to his surroundings because his acting is always on point. You will LOL at every video.

Isabella Avina, also known as Jayus on Tiktok, will teach you the coolest psychology tricks in the most entertaining way. Do you want to make someone feel uncomfortable? Offer them gum, and don’t take one for yourself. They will think you offered them because their breath stinks. That’s just one of the killer tricks that I learned from her!

Ben Johnson’s account is your one way stop for some shoe art inspo! Why wear boring sneakers when you can customize them? That’s exactly what Ben does: turning plain sneakers into artwork. The process is satisfying to watch!

It's amazing how much you can do in short videos!
