Introducing the Love Island lookalikes! New breed of US reality stars bear uncanny resemblances to their UK counterparts... with Anton, Amy and Amber all finding eerily similar Stateside doppelgängers
- The long-anticipated US re-boot of the beloved show which originates from the UK debuted on Tuesday
- Stars of the UK show including Anton Danyluk, Amy Hart and Amber Gill all feature lookalikes
Tuesday night saw the US kick off its very own lookalike Love Island format.
And while the villa, the games and the twists and turns may mirror the beloved UK show, it is also the contestants who seem to have doubled up, as the big reveal of the sexy singles across the pond bear an uncanny resemblance to the love hunters in the Majorca villa.
The most eye-popping lookalike duo are undoubtedly Scottish hunk Anton Danyluk, 24, and Michael Yi, 29, with their dark hair, chiseled jaws and brooding expressions deeming them two-of-a-kind, while Amber Gill, 21, has exactly the same bouncy curls as fellow star Caroline 'Caro' Viehweg, 21.
Shock! Love Island US launched on Tuesday night, and saw a host of the stars bear incredible resemblances to their UK counterparts, with Anton Danyluk and Michael Yi (left-right) leading the incredible lookalikes
Many of the stars in the inaugural batch of US Islanders boast the hallmarks of the stars of the UK show, including white teeth and toned bodies - making them matches made in heaven with their counterparts.
Anton and male model and day-one favorite Michael, 29, could easily pass for twins, as their dazzling good looks meant the pair were lookalike in their gaze - yet Michael is no doubt hoping he'll be more lucky with the ladies.
Despite being evicted earlier this month, Arabella Chi, 28, is living on in the US in Elizabeth Weber, a hot-shot New York advertising executive, 24. Both the stunning ladies boast tumbling blonde locks and winning smiles.
Following her heartache in the villa, air hostess Amy Hart, 26, who left the show earlier this week, will no doubt do a double-take when she lays eyes on Nike analyst Mallory Santic, 25, with whom she shares a striking resemblance.
Wow: Caroline 'Caro' Viehweg, 21, a marketing student, is lucky enough to feature the same bouncy curls to UK counterpart Amber Gill, also 21, as well as mirroring her stunning good looks

Caro,, a marketing student, is lucky enough to feature the same bouncy curls to UK counterpart Amber as well as mirroring her stunning good looks.
Another dumped Islander making a lookalike appearance is Elma Pazar, who is a near-mirror image in publicist Alexandra Stewart, with both ladies donning cascading caramel locks.
The eye-popping likenesses come after viewers pointed out the similarities between presenter Arielle Vandenberg, 32, who boasts more than a passing resemblance to British host Caroline Flack, 39.

Keep it short and sweet like Amy in a playsuit from In The Style
Amy Hart won the hearts of the nation last night when she walked out of the Love Island villa with her head held high.
For a time we thought she and Curtis Pritchard would be taking home the £50k, but we think Amy is a winner without getting to the final!
She's pictured here ahead of jetting back home to her family, and she looked positively radiant in her pretty pink floral print playsuit. It's from In The Style and we love the ruffle straps and ruched cut out detailing.

Or take your pick of the playsuits we've tracked down for you elsewhere.
Eh!? The ladies feature striking likenesses, including their blonde hair and winning smiles
The duo's social media accounts are littered with envy-inducing snapshots from exotic getaways, nights out and behind-the-scenes presenting gigs. Arielle, who has 1.2million Instagram followers, regularly shares bikini and swimsuit selfies with her followers, grinning from ear-to-ear just like Caroline.
Now in its fifth season in Britain, the smash-hit prime-time reality show phenomenon Love Island officially debuted in the US on Tuesday night – and one islander was quick to cause a stir.
Tweaked and re-packaged from the format of its European predecessor, the US version started by following 11 single guys and girls on their quest for true love in a stunning beach-front abode in Fiji, a journey promised to be filled with bust-ups, break-ups and raunchy run-ins.

The first episode appeared to captive and enrage its audience in equal measure as it cut to a commercial break as it reached a dramatic conclusion then returned moments later purely to let the credits roll.
The show will air every week day for the next month, as CBS strives to replicate the success of the British original which boasts a staggering average viewership of three million households a night.
Singletons will couple up with one another and indulge in a variety of games, challenges and awkward conversations across the next four weeks, with the last couple standing heading home with $100,000 prize.
Stunner: Dumped star Jourdan Riane, 24, can be happy in the knowledge that she has a stateside lookalike in Kyra Green, 22
The aim is to remain in a committed couple as new islanders head into the villa to tempt contestants away from their original partners. Uncoupled contestants will be sent home packing each week in game-show format geared towards survival of the fittest – or hottest.
The show got off to a flying start for male model Michael, who admitted to producers before heading into the villa that ‘being this good looking is a curse’.
During the coupling-up ceremony, Michael, who walked in last out of the boys, appeared to instantly steal the hearts of four of the five girls, with Mallory, Alexandra, Caro and Elizabeth all stepping forward and showing that they wanted to couple up with the Vegan heartthrob, leaving their previous picks in the dust.
