Meet The Bodybuilding J-Lo Lookalike of Instagram

The original might still be 'Jenny from the Block', but now, there might well be a new Jennifer Lopez in town. Or at least a damn good lookalike.

Jay from Houston is a bodybuilder, Instagram model and, whether she likes it or not, Jennifer Lopez lookalike who is building quite the following for herself on social media.

She's garnered over 180,000 followers on the gram, not to mention extensive media appearances based on her resemblance to one of the most famous - and most famously beautiful - women in the world.

"No, I'm not J-Lo, I'm Jay from Houston," she recently told a radio station in her native city. "It [the resemblance] never really crossed my mind... but the whole world says I look like J-Lo."

She has a level of drive that J-Lo would be proud of. She's a fitness model and competes in bodybuilding contests, showing off her impressive physique.

On top of that, her love definitely costs something as well - she's sponsored by several leading fitness brands and promotes their products to her hundreds of thousands of Instagram followers.

Another female celebrity lookalike recently got tongues wagging online. However, unlike with Jay, people weren't as convinced at the similarities.

Channel 4 programme First Dates aired a Royal Wedding-themed episode in celebration of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle getting hitched, and it featured a Kate Middleton doppelganger.

29-year-old Jodie, from Chelmsford, has appeared in national newspapers in photos parodying Kate's life.

However, unlike the real Kate Middleton, Jodie didn't have a prince to call her own - or any babies, for that matter - so went on the show in order to change that.

But it wasn't Jodie's romantic fortunes that got people talking on social media. Instead, people didn't seem to think that she bore much of a resemblance to Prince William's other half at all.

While she's not an exact replica of Kate Middleton, we don't think she looks that unlike Kate, to be fair. But it looks like we're in the minority.
