Pokimane is one of the most popular entertainers in the world, boasting millions of followers across YouTube, Instagram, and of course her Twitch channel, where she is one of the most watched streamers on the platform.
However after the Moroccan-Canadian asked her fans to submit photos of people that look like her, she was stunned when one of the submissions looked like a perfect clone. The personality thought she could pass for a sibling.

The search for Poki’s doppelganger kicked off on April 9 when the Twitch streamer made a post on social media asking her fans to send people that looked similar to her for an upcoming video.
“Send me my look alikes/people you think look like me, and you may be featured in an upcoming video” she tweeted. The post received over 2.5k replies, as viewers shared pictures of those identical to the personality.

On April 20 the star uploaded a video to her YouTube channel where she went through the results. However, one person in particular caught her eye and made her lose it.
“This is it. This is the ONE person that I’ve ever looked at and been like ‘you’re my long lost twin!'” she said. She then told her viewers “Look at this!” and played them a clip of her doppelganger.
“That’s me! Like, I’m gonna do the exact same zoom in a video,” she exclaimed, before re-creating the clip on her phone and putting the two videos side by side to highlight how much they look the same. “Oh my God! It’s insaaaaaane!”
The streamer then pointed out how their features matched. “The hair color is the same, the smile is super similar. The nose to eyebrow, to eye, it’s all so similar! I think she looks like a babier version of me. Awww, she has the dimple like me too! I love that so much!”

Not only did the viewer get compared to Pokimane, the streamer herself gave them a major compliment, stating, “This is the first person i’d actually say looks like me… But cuter!”
While the streamer is massive on Twitch with millions of followers, her YouTube account is even more impressive. At the time of writing, it has an astonishing 4.8 million subscribers.
