It is said that everybody has a doppelgänger. A doppelgänger is a “double” of a person, or two very similar looking people. Doppelgängers could possibly be mistaken as siblings or twins if seen together. Some people are even lucky enough to look like a celebrity.

Barnesville’s Business Education teacher, Matt Askegaard, has been told on several occasions that he looks like singer, Josh Turner. Senior Caleb Stetz explained, “They both have nice white teeth, stubble, brown hair, and the same jaw line. They also have tan skin.” Some people could take offense to being told they look like celebrities, but not Askegaard. “I take it as a compliment” he explained. Askegaard doesn’t agree that he looks like Josh Turner, but when asked who he feels he looks like he said, “I have never really thought about it.”

Although the two may look like each other, there are still some differences. “Yes he does look like him, but he just needs a little bit more facial hair,” junior Wylie Lewis explained. Askegaard keeps his stubble at a much shorter length than Josh Turner does; however, he does grow it out making them look even more alike.

Askegaard and Turner are by no means identical. If I didn’t know Askegaard, I would mistake them to be brothers. Some may not see the similarities between the two, but if everyone has a doppelgänger, could Askegaard’s be Josh Turner?
