Woah. Ted Cruz has been compared to a lot of people during his run for president, but this is the most shocking resemblance yet! Star Duke basketball player Grayson Allen looks just like the candidate, and people on Twitter are flipping out about it! Here’s the scoop.
It’s a March Madness/2016 election mash-up! Fans are losing their minds on Mar. 17 after someone pointed out the striking resemblance between Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz, 45, and Grayson Allen, 20, one of Duke University’s star basketball players. You’ve got to see the best reactions to the likeness right here!
This is CRAZY! Ted is constantly being compared to hilarious things. First, there was a conspiracy theory that Ted was actually the Zodiac Killer, but that was debunked because he was actually born after the killings. Then, people were positive that he was the lead singer of Christian rock group Stryper, and while the resemblance is pretty strong, it’s nothing compared to how much Ted looks like Grayson.
Grayson is a basketball player for Duke University, and with so many people watching him play during March Madness, someone was bound to notice he looks just like the Republican presidential candidate. The comparisons began to multiply until the whole internet was freaking out over whether or not Grayson is actually Ted’s long lost son.
The fans created a frenzy online. First there were side-by-sides. Then people began speculating on how insulted Grayson must be, and debating whether or not the pair is related. Then, the face swaps came. The weirdest part is that when you switch their faces, you can’t even tell the difference! Here are some of the most hilarious comparisons.

Can't believe the media isn't all over the story of Ted Cruz having an illegitimate son starring for Duke basketball. #GraysonAllen
