Hot Medellin girls are not the sole reason for this rise in tourism to “The City of Eternal Spring”, but it is definitely up there.

A dating app is offering people the chance to meet lookalikes of their favourite celebrities thanks to new facial recognition technology.

Through the app, called Badoo, singletons can choose any well-known star they fancy – or even upload a picture of a non-famous person who they know – to find doppelgangers nearby.

After it finds the lookalikes, the app then links to each person’s dating profile, whether on Plenty Of Fish or Tinder.

NOTE: I wrote this post about my experience dating women in Medellin back in April of 2013.
