If you’re over the age of 18, chances are you also had Nina Dobrev’s face plastered on the memorabilia of your youth, from old magazine covers to posters that once graced your closet doors. After all, whether you watched it or not, there’s no denying The Vampire Diaries was one of the select cult classic, guilty pleasure teen shows of today’s 20-year-olds.
Three years after her show’s staggering 11-year run concluded, we bet you’re wondering what Elena Gilbert’s been up to. Well, when she’s not starring in obscure films, revealing her day-to-night beauty routine on Vogue, or swaying her hips to a fully choreographed Shawn Mendes track, you may find Nina looking for true love in a…reality TV show?
Okay, wait. Erase that! Sorry for the confusion, but her resemblence to Amber Pike from Netflix's Love Is Blind is a quite uncanny—even the internet can't unsee it:
"Are we sure Amber from @LoveisBlindShow isn’t Nina Dobrev?" one Twitter user wrote.
Someone even joked about Nina finally finding her real-life doppelganger, referring to Elena's own badder and spunkier lookalike on TVD (also portrayed by the actress) Katherine Pierce.
Alternatively, Amber could even be Nina and YouTuber Jenna Marbles' lovechild. Hey, according to the tweets below, it's a possibility!
Love Is Blind follows a group of singles who participate in an experiment/reality TV show to find true love and simultaneously answer the age old question: "Is love truly blind?" Here's the kicker, though: Unlike other dating shows, the contestants never actually see each other, and only communicate through thinly veiled walls. The first time they get to stand face-to-face with their chosen fiance comes right after the blind proposal. No big deal.
Spoiler alert! Amber just so happens to be one of the only two couples who made it past "I do."
Come to think of it, she and Elena did both end up marrying problematic yet well-meaning guys—we're looking at you Matt Barnett and Damon Salvatore!
Honestly, you be the judge.
