The lookalikes! Everyone is born with unique appearances, but once in a while, one can be born with features so strikingly similar to those we saw on TV. There's no drama, no stories of being separated from family - they happen to look so similar!
Thanks to their appearance that left such a strong impression on people, they often turn it into a professional job. These people often get invited as performers and guest in talk shows to share their experience, sharing a similar feature to some celebrities. Let's say their life often ends up a whole lot smoother than not!

The definition of 'doppelganger' is also changing with the advent of facial recognition technology. What we consider to be lookalike might not be so for technology and vice-versa. “When you get them together, and you see them side by side, sometimes you feel that they are not the same at all.”
Plus, you might even not be similar in terms of height, even if you might have similar faces. So much for being doppelgangers!
