Filipinos' are absolute fans of comparing faces of celebrities and politicians. There have been several television shows that make "a look alike" as a segment and the audience will be the judges. Comparing faces doesn't only happen in the Philippines, but also to the other countries.
Have you heard of Shakira's look alike? How about Beyonce? Collin Farrell? Even the former President Barack Obama has one!
You might have someone might look exactly as you are, and that would be fascinating to know. There's a coincidence that even if you're not related to each other, they can be your doopleganger.
