I like the way I look…I like the way I look…I like the way I look

ninetI like the internet. Nine times out of ten it tells me what I want to hear: “Oh Chris, your IQ is 160!” “Wow Chris, you beat this level so quickly!” “Don’t worry Chris, it’s just the common cold.” “Chris, you’re so strong and intelligent that I knew right away you were the person that could help get me and the rest of the royal family out of Nigeria safely!”

It’s a wonderful setup, really.

A few days ago, however, the internet told me something that I did not want to hear: “Chris, you’re so handsome…you look just like a female Israeli pop singer.” What…the…eff.

Now, if I’m being honest (and I always am), people have been telling me I look like an Asian person since at least my freshman year in college when the guy across the hall informed me that everyone in my super-weird, artsy, commune dorm at USC had started calling me “Anime Boy” because they didn’t know my real name and I looked like a character in whatever wacked out anime they were using to escape reality that week.

But until I used My Heritage’s celebrity collage tool, I had never been told that scientifically, I bear a 74% resemblance to Ninet Tayeb, the lovely Israeli pop singer whose picture appears up top. The celebrity collage tool also informed me that I bear a striking resemblance to the guy who was cast to play Goku in the upcoming live-action Dragonball Z movie, two Korean male models, a former member of N’Sync, a really lame singer-songwriter, a cracked-out child star, and Ferris Bueller.

Who will it say that you look like?

Give it a shot and let me know who you get. Don’t be dissuaded when it asks you to register; just put in a fake email address and skip the ads.

  1. At least your look-a-like has nice ta tas.

  2. Actually, you do look like the anime bad guy in your first link in the main text. And if you’d gone ahead and eaten that gelatinous ham you showed us a few weeks ago, you probably would have had red wormy things coming out of your body too!

  3. Here’s my look-alike profile: http://www.new.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=1861525&l=e095d&id=501556045

    I’m surprised that Ian Somerhalder isn’t higher in percentage, because (as you can surely guess) I’m stopped on the street all the time by people asking, “Wait….aren’t you Ian Somerhalder 30 years from now?”
