Samantha Ramsdell has a big mouth, and she doesn’t care who knows it. The Stamford, Conn., comedian has been awarded the Guinness World Record for “largest mouth gape (female).” Her open maw stretches 6.52 centimetres tall and 14.5 centimetres wide. The male record belongs to a Minnesota teenager whose mouth gape is 10.175 centimetres tall. “I always knew I had a very large mouth, but I never thought I’d get a Guinness World Record for it, so it is really cool,” Ramsdell told As It Happens guest host Katie Simpson. But Ramsdell didn’t always feel proud of her unique facial feature. “I grew up thinking that this was a flaw and being really insecure about my mouth. Of course, I got called names growing up and, you know, it was just something that I was self-conscious of,” she said.
