Jamus Lim or JJ Lin? Singapore Politicians and Their Celebrity Look-alikes

The resemblance is uncanny.

If you thought Jamus Lim from the Workers’ Party looked familiar, you are not alone.

Some netizens have commented how the political newcomer and one of GE2020’s breakout stars looks like another famous person — Singaporean Mandopop singer, JJ Lin.

Okay, we admit we cheated with this one. Even if the former Pasir-Ris Punggol GRC MP (that’s Teo Ser Luck) and former pageant-queen turned etiquette coach Teo Ser Lee look-alike, it shouldn’t be surprising. They are brother and sister, after all.
