I was watching the US Olympic Gymnastics Trials the other day. American gymnast Jake Dalton made me do a double-take. Why? Because he is exactly what I always pictured the Pike triplets to grow up looking like. I mean exactly. He's like a doppelganger of three fictional characters whose looks existed solely in my mind.
Except for Jake Dalton is way more muscular (obviously. I mean, he is a gymnast.) I always pictured Adam and Jordan as kind of scrawny throughout their lives. Byron is a little pudgier, because he's a stress eater.
Not that I've spent any time thinking about this or anything.
For your pleasure, some pictures of Jake Dalton. (And it's not just him. The entire US men's team is sooo not-ugly.)
