Fans are convinced that Instagram star and fitness guru Janice Garay looks more like J-Lo than J-Lo herself.
The 28-year-old Garay is from Texas. Her social media is based on her fitness photos and gym inspiration, but lately fans have started pouring in to let Garay know that she has a doppelganger, and its J-Lo.
Garay, who has more than 181,000 followers on social media, has been compared by followers and fans of the I’m Into You singer multiple times now.
The fitness guru jumped on the bandwagon herself, posting a side by side comparison of herself and J-Lo and captioned it, “So what you guys are telling me is that everybody has a twin and @jlo happens to be mine??? I’ll take it!”
On Instagram, the picture has almost 30,000 likes and hundreds of comments followers line up to tell her how much she resembles the famous singer.
One fan wrote, “I think you resemble her in some pics and depending on facial expression you, but looking at most of your pics, you have different look than her. Bun photos makes you look alot like her, hair down not so much! But you are beautiful and that is a fact!”
“If JLo had muscles she’d look like you,” said another.
“That’s definitely yo twin,” wrote one follower.
Another fan said, “Waoooo is crazy … Two beautiful dedicated females and mothers.. congrats [sic]” another fan said.
“I swear I thought it was JLo when I saw your pic,” wrote yet another.
“Yep I would say you were definitely the doppelgänger of JLo. It would be awesome if you two could meet,” one fan wished.
According to People, a local news station once asked Garay if she thought she looked like J-Lo. She said, “No, I’m not J-Lo, I’m Jay from Houston. It never really crossed my mind….[but now] the whole world says I look like J-Lo.” She added, “flattered because [Lopez] is my idol, someone I’ve looked up to since I was a little girl.”
Despite loving the comparisons to J-Lo, Garay is very certain about what she’s meant to be doing in life. Rather than be on a stage, she prefers to be in the gym, building her body up.
She said, “I saw instant results and got addicted. I feel it’s where I’m supposed to be.”
Garay also participates in fitness competitions and is the spokesperson for a number of supplement brands.
