TWIN LAKE, Mich., May 13 (UPI) -- Adrianne Lewis from Michigan may have the longest tongue in the world.

Measuring in at four inches long, the 18-year-old is able to reach her nose, elbow and eye with her appendage.


In a recent interview with Barcroft TV, the teen revealed that she has was it takes to be judged for the Guinness World Record title. The current title-holder is Nick Stoeberi, whose tongue measures in at 3.97 inches.

Although she has not yet been considered for the world record, USA Today reports that she will appear in the annual Ripley's Believe It or Not book due out in May 2016.

Edward Meyer, vice president of exhibits for Ripley's said: "She's certainly not the first long tongue story we've ever done, but it's definitely a 'believe it or not.' As an editor, I see that kind of story and it brings a smile to my face and I want the world to know about it."

Lewis already has a YouTube channel where she's been uploading videos of her long tongue since 2013.
