The fourth Kardashian with the eighth position in the list of top 20 Instagram with the most followers. @kimkardashian has about 287 Million followers.
She is more or less the reason Kardashians exist. It was end of an era when keeping up with the Kardashians ended. I used to get all my fashion inspiration from them. But they are out with a new show, The Kardashians.
The account has a lot of pictures with her family and them vacationing.
If you are interested in fashion, hers Instagram is a must to follow. Here is a post on how Kim Kardashian became Kim Kardashian.
Another one of my favorites, @arianagrande bags the seventh position with 295 Million followers.

6. Selena Gomez
Our lovely @selenagomez has 298 Million followers and hoping for them to grow.
All the 90s kids have grown up watching our favorite show Wizards of Waverly place starring Selena Gomez as Alex.
Watching this show used to be my favorite time of the day. A cool mixture of magazine shoots, promoting her brand Rare Beauty, silly candids and awareness for mental health, her Instagram account is as bubbly and beautiful as she is.
More power to you Selena!
@therock also has around 298 Million followers, 289.6 to be exact, fighting for a tough number 5 position with Ariana and swapping positions every week or so.
A fitness motivation, right now his Instagram goes from a Hollywood movie star, tequila mogul, future presidential candidate and former WWE champion The Rock, an endless supply of workout pictures and videos and some candid pictures.
As we see from the list, he is the only Hollywood actor who has made it to the most followed Instagram accounts list. There is nothing more surprising than this!
4. Lionel Messi
Our @leomeessi comes fourth in this list with a stunning number of 308 Million followers.
One of the Ronaldo’s biggest competition (I don’t prefer the term rival) has broken the 300 million mark in 2022.
A peep into the candid pictures of his professional life and a few snaps from his family and friends, his is a quite interesting Instagram.

The most influential and famous footballer, @cristiano ranks second with as many as 385 404Million followers. Way to go Ronaldo!
Cristiano’s Instagram is filled with his candid shots playing and practicing football.
