20 Most Liked TikToks of 2021

This article has been updated for accuracy with the latest information on September 29, 2021.

If you’re wondering what are the most liked TikToks of 2021, you’re in the right place. In this guide, I’ll talk about who has the most liked TikTok ever, who are the most popular TikTokers in the world at the moment, and shortly describe each video on the list. 

The top 20 most liked TikToks in the world includes eight videos from Khabane Lame, two lip syncing videos, two dancing videos, one drawing video, two cute cat videos, one cute lion video, one cute baby video, one with nature, one featuring a pick-up line from a funny chef, and one video from Billie Eilish using a popular TikTok filter. 

Whereas Charli D’Amelio has the most followers on TikTok, as I’ve talked in this article about the accounts with the most followers on TikTok, she actually doesn’t have the most liked video or even one included in the top 20. In fact, there are only two people who are both in the top 20 most followed accounts and owners of the most liked TikToks in the top 20. And while Bella Poarch only has one video in top 20, Khabane Lame actually has eight at the current moment.

But let’s take a deeper dive into the top 20 most liked TikToks of all time and see what they’re all about and how many likes they have right now.

1. Bella Poarch lip syncing to “Soph Aspin Send” by Millie B (popularly known as “M to the B”) – 53.1 million 

Bella Poarch is known on TikTok for her lip syncing and intense facial expressions, which got her the most liked TikTok in history, at least so far. And at 53.1 million likes, she leads quite detachedly from the rest, so she will probably not be dethroned too soon.


2. Franek Bielak drawing – 48.2 million 

Franek Bielak has impressed many TikTok users with his drawing skills, and this video makes no exception. 


3. Nick Luciano’s lip syncing parody – 47.8 million

Nick Luciano posts about his life in the countryside, but also parodies popular TikTok trends. It’s one of those parodies that got him the third most liked TikTok, where he lip syncs to a popular song.

5. Billie Eilish playing with the “Time Warp Scan” filter – 39 million

Although she only joined TikTok in November 2020, it’s no surprise that one of her videos has made it on the list of most liked TikToks of all time, as Billie needs no introduction and has a lot of fans all over the world. The video shows Billie using the popular “Time Warp Scan” filter, and having quite a laugh at the results.


6. Khaby Lame’s how to peel a banana – 37.8 million

Khabane (or Khaby) Lame currently owns the second most followed TikTok account, with 113 million followers, so it’s no surprise that he has 8 videos in the top 20 most liked TikToks. Or maybe it is a surprise since Charli D’Amelio, who has the number one most followed TikTok account, doesn’t have any videos in the top 20 most liked TikToks. But people love Khaby for how relatable he is and how he states the obvious that everyone is thinking when watching stupid TikTok hacks. In this video, Khaby shows how to peel a banana like a normal human.


7. Khaby Lame’s how to open a car door – 35.9 million

You know how when you sit in the back of a car, you don’t know when it’s safe to get out because you don’t have a side mirror to look behind? Well, Khaby shows us how we can easily do it.


8. British Promise Cats’ cute cat – 35.9 million

If you like cute cat videos, you need to follow British Promise Cats. They have a lot of adorable and funny cat TikToks of different cats. This one is of a cat pawing at the camera.


9. Khaby Lame’s how to open a door – 35.4 million

Sometimes you just can’t open a door… when your foot rests on it.


10. Khaby Lame’s how to remove a mask from a cup handle – 34.6 million

However shall you remove your face mask when it’s “stuck” inside your cup handle? Which method makes more sense to you?

12. Jalapeno’s smooth pick-up line – 33.3 million

13. Khaby Lame’s how to grab a glass – 32.1 million

When you want a handle on your glass, you can build one out of plastic. Or maybe how about NOT? Is there any other utensil you could be using to make your glass usable?


14. Kitten running to “You Are So Beautiful” by Bug Hall – 32.1 million

This is another account you should follow if you like cats. This TikTok portrays a kitten running to the song “You Are So Beautiful”, sung adorably in a kid’s voice.

I swear some of these 5-minute-craft-style videos are just made for Khaby to make fun of.

17. Cachita7gri’s silly dancing – 29.9 million

Cachita is an Argentinian elder lady who likes to dance and have fun on TikTok. People love her sense of humor and her ability to make fun of herself. Her account may not be for everyone, as it has a bit of a shock value and a grandma-got-loose kind of vibe, so I’ll let you decide if you think it’s suitable for you:


18. Khaby Lame’s how to rip toilet paper – 29.7 million

Having trouble ripping a square of toilet paper? This video is for you:


19. Khaby Lame’s special effect with flour – 28.6 million

This one is a little different from other Khaby videos, but it still has a funny ending.
