TikTok might be most popular among teens, but that might be about to change. Lately, quarantined parents all over the world have been introduced to the viral video app, resulting in hashtags such as #over30, #over30club and #over30andtiktokin getting a lot more traction than what used to be the case. Lately, some big names in the entertainment have also joined in on the fun.
For this article, we have compiled a list of the TikTok accounts run by over 30-year-olds that you should follow. If you ever feel a bit too old for TikTok, watching these accounts will help you feel better.

That New Teacher @thatnewteacher
Brooke Rogers a.k.a. That New Teacher is the English teacher we all wish we’ve had. Her videos have gathered millions of likes from TikTok users of all ages, thanks to Brooke’s humor and the positive vibes her videos exude.
Why should you follow @thatnewteacher?
Her videos are easy to relate to if you are over 30, have a family and happen to love children of all ages. She’s also really good at laughing at herself and often makes fun of both teachers and students.
Will Smith @willsmith
Yes, *that* Will Smith is on TikTok. One of the most beloved actors since the early 90s, Will Smith has taken TikTok by storm, gathering a massive following of 22 million people since joining TikTok in October 2019.
Why should you follow @willsmith?
Being a rich superstar in the entertainment world comes with a few benefits. First of all, you can basically do anything since your budget is virtually unlimited. Secondly, you don’t become that famous for no reason—you have to be quite an entertaining personality, don’t you? Thirdly, you know people who can do all that editing magic that looks cool. Will Smith might not be very productive on TikTok, but his videos are of the highest quality: funny, visually impressive and relatable. What’s not to like?
The Rock @therock
Will Smith isn’t the only world-famous actor bringing joy to our lives on TikTok. The Rock is right up there with Will Smith when it comes to likeability and popularity.
Why should you follow @therock?
21 million followers can not be wrong, now can they? The Rock pumps iron, shoots down a Super Mario Duck and shares photos of himself as a young boy. He does all this while being his charming self. Following him is simply a no-brainer.
Patti Schmidt @pattiaveryschmidt
This mom of four shares the joys of family life with her followers. Not a celebrity in her own right outside TikTok, she simply states that she’s “here to have fun”.
Why should you follow her?
On TikTok, you can watch her work out with her family, re-enact the notorious Titanic scene where Rose leaves Jack die, or just do fun voice-overs. For a mom of four with grown-up children she also looks spectacularly good, so if you need someone to be inspired by, she’s the one.
Jason Derulo @jasonderulo
One of the youngest over 30-year-olds in this list is Jason Derulo, only reaching the milestone last year. He is a singer, songwriter, and now also a TikToker whose videos have been liked over 150 milion times.
Why should you follow @jasonderulo?
On April 23, 2020 Jason Derulo shaved his left eye-brow on TikTok after losing a basketball bet. Many people would share something so personal on social media, but Jason being Jason has no qualms. In fact, he has been showing off his one-browed look in a later video and seems to quite enjoy it. Apart from his recent shaving videos, he also does the usual: dancing, singing, fooling around that TikTok is famous for.
