Mikayla Saravia made £80k this year with her freakishly long tongue

TextAlex Peters

The internet's obsession with long appendages continues

Long appendages get tongues wagging. Last month, Jacob Pina went viral after he began posting videos of his five-inch thumb on TikTok and the 20-year-old student now boasts over 150k followers on the app. 

But watch out Jacob, because there is a new long sheriff in town. Her name is Mikayla Saravia, a 21-year-old from Florida – and she has a 6.5-inch long tongue. That’s right. Even better, she claims it has brought in $99,500 (£80,000) this year alone.

Speaking to LAD Bible, Saravia says that she discovered her unique tongue “at a young age, I think the 6th grade.” Making the most of her tongue, her social media posts, which see her licking various phallic food items from cucumbers to bananas to ice lollies, bring in between $900 (£720) and $3,000 (£2,400) each. 

Saravia also shares videos of herself twerking and whatever is going on here with her two million Instagram followers. The money brought in from these posts is supplemented by sales of her merchandise including pop-sockets with her tongue-logo and a range of sex toys like this super-sized tongue vibrator. "I think outside the box and try to be different,” she says.

With our obsession with freakishly large (and small) body parts seemingly going nowhere, stay tuned to see who we’ll be obsessed with next.
