Well, Based on the OP's eyesight and reasoning - look at these!

Another case of "You people all look the same"; most commonly found in Americans.

AI is always looking for some fresh new look or sound. Contadors brother should have rocked the unibrow. Think of all the buz that would have created.

Some of you people who say they don't look the same would be EASILY fooled by flimsy disguises. All a guy or gal would need to do was change their hat and you would think they were a different person!

It is hard to judge someone from a small picture rather than in person but both American Idol/cyclist examples are pretty close.

It'd be funny to have them both try and start a conversation. I'm pretty sure they won't be able to understand a word the other says (Puerto Rican Spanish vs. Castillian Spanish and all) for the first 5 minutes until they get used to each other's accent.

The only person on Idol I've seen that looks like any other famous person was Chris Daughtry when compared to Scooter Ward (from the band COLD), though Scooter and COLD aren't terribly famous.
