20 People Who Won the Genetic Lottery

Thanks to genes, we have people living among us who are so brilliantly unique, they make us want to look at them twice. From inheriting facial features to looking like an exact copy of their parent to acquiring one-of-a-kind traits, genes work in mysterious ways — sometimes resembling a miracle.

We at Bright Side have compiled a list of people who prove genetic miracles are truly awesome.
