TikTok's 10 biggest stars - and the millions they could lose


These influencers, who have amassed millions of followers and substantial wealth, face the risk of losing their platforms and having to chart new career paths.

The top TikToker makes $750,000 per video, has a net worth of $15 million and an astonishing 162 million followers - but this could be all gone within the next 12 months. 

That is because after years of pressure, a measure to outlaw the popular video-sharing app has finally won congressional approval and been signed into law by Biden. 

The measure gives Beijing-based parent company ByteDance nine months to sell the company - and if not, TikTok will be banned in the US.

Here reveals the the top 10 TikTokers who risk losing everything - including the surprising number one.  

1. Khaby Lame - 162M followers 

You may not have ever heard his name, but Khaby Lame takes the number one spot on TikTok in 2024. 

Lame - who came from humble beginnings - joined the platform in 2020 after being laid off from his factory job during the Covid-19 Pandemic. 

Since then, he has met celebrities, been invited to glitzy events and galas, and landed sponsorship deals with the likes of Hugo Boss.

The Senegal-born Italian content creator rose to prominence on TikTok with his humorous reactions and relatable content.
