Here are all the TikTok stars who made it onto the Forbes 30 Under 30 list
Kombucha girl aka Brittany Broski is on there!
Do you already feel not great about the fact that there are TikTok stars out there who make more in one video than you do in a year? Well, the good news is the Forbes 30 Under 30 list has been released and there is now a dedicated section for those who are making their living through TikTok content.
The Forbes 30 Under 30 list picks 30 people who are under the age of 30 who they feel have been influential and left a mark in their sector. To be fair, some of these TikTokers featured I do love dearly so I can’t really hold it against them. Let’s see who made the cut!
Even if you think you don’t know who Brittany Broksi is, you 100 per cent do. Brittany went viral in 2019 and quickly became known as the kombucha girl. Since then she’s amassed a massive following on Instagram, YouTube and obviously TikTok, and she even got to meet Harry Styles.
She was previously the host of TikTok’s official podcast, For You Podcast, where she’s interviewed big names like Chelsea Handler, Jack Harlow and Bill Nye. Brittany has also appeared in Super Bowl commercials, won Paper Magazine’s TikToker of the Year award and created content for MTV and Comedy Central.
She is a queen and I love her dearly. If you don’t watch her content you need to immediately.
If you don’t recognise Benito outside of costume you might recognise him through pretending to be someone else. He’s done hundreds of skits and impressions of celebrities including Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish and Kourtney Kardashian.
In June, he performed his Kourtney Kardashian impression on The Kardashians, which was as iconic as it sounds. He’s currently producing his own show with Amazon called Overcompesating which is based on his childhood as a closeted teen.
Remi Bader is a certified TikTok baddie, and even though she didn’t start making content until March 2021, she’s gained over two million followers on her TikTok account.
Her posts highlight looks and trends from major fashion lines while also critiquing size discrepancies between the brands. She’s also landed partnerships with Victoria’s Secret, Walmart and L’Oreal, as well as having her own collection with Revolve.
Alongside being a TikTok star in his own right, Noah is also very well-known for being Dixie D’Amelio’s ex-boyfriend. He didn’t start a TikTok account until 2020 during covid and went viral for basically just being an attractive, young, white male.
He now has over 30 million followers on TikTok and is producing his first feature-length film called The QB Bad Boy and Me.
Having Brent on this list feels like such a 2016 fever dream, I actually can’t believe he’s only 24. Brent gained popularity on Vine before moving to YouTube and then TikTok. He has over 45 million followers on TikTok and does viral dances, trends with his sister and a lot of relationship-centred videos.
He started the media company Amp Studios in 2017 to teach other creators and brands how to go viral.
Julian Shapiro-Barnum is a comedian and actor known for his viral online show, Recess Therapy, which is where he interviewed the kid who is obsessed with corn. In Recess Therapy he asks kids big questions like “How to be a better person” and “Why do you love your mum?”
I would recommend watching his TikToks with tissues nearby because I guarantee you will start violently sobbing.
Whilst you might not know who Zaria is you’ve definitely seen who she manages. Yep, she’s the marketing manager for Duolingo. Duolingo completely changed the game for corporate marketing on TikTok and often does videos that seemingly have nothing to do with learning languages.
No amount of viral TikTok videos will make me any less of that owl though, he haunts my dreams.
