hile Jack Ma may have a rather distinctive look, it turns out that he also has quite a number of lookalikes scattered across China.
The billionaire’s latest doppelganger was recently spotted in rural Sichuan province, selling wild mushrooms on the side of the road. Zhou Chaozhong looks almost exactly like a chain-smoking Jack Ma, at least from one side.
Zhou makes his living as a farmer in Gong county in southern Sichuan. However, between May and June each year, he goes up into the hills to search for wild mushrooms to sell on the street, making an extra 5,000 yuan for his efforts.
Though, now that his famous face has been revealed, Zhou may soon start to rake in more profits.
Over in the provincial capital of Chengdu, there’s a neighborhood security guard who became popular online a few years back for also looking very similar to Jack Ma. The only problem was that he was just too darn handsome.
While in rural Jiangxi province, an 8-year-old became an internet star back in 2016 for his uncanny resemblance to the Alibaba founder. Originally, it was reported that Jack Ma had pledged to support his “Mini Ma“ until the boy graduated from high school. However, that was later revealed to be fake news.
But not everyone can be born lucky. One young entrepreneur from Shenzhen was forced to spend 1 million yuan on plastic surgeries so that he might look more like his personal hero.
