Win Gatchalian and Joel Villanueva were #twinsies at the COMELEC proclamation

And some people still can't tell them apart.

Gatchalian Villanueva


( A photo of senator-elect Joel Villanueva (a.k.a. TESDA Man) with senator-elect Sherwin Gatchalian (a.k.a. Kuya Win) quickly became viral after the latter posted it on his official Facebook page on Thursday, May 19. "Ito na ang much-awaited photo with my twin sa Senate. Haha!" read Gatchalian's caption. The two senators were at second and tenth place, respectively, as announced by the Commission on Elections on Thursday, May 19 after the official canvassing of ballots from the May 9 elections.



People took to social media to share their reactions on the "good vibes" photo. 



Some people actually mistook the two for twins prior to the election.





Monikers emerged for the newest twins of the Senate, such as "Education twins," "Kambal ng Tadhana," and "Chinito Bloc." Of course, with the creativity of Filipinos, it was only a matter of time before it was turned into a puzzle game.
