A Look-Alike Contest Or Two

In 1975, several years before his death, Chaplin entered a look-alike contest of himself in France. 

He probably thought he was a shoo-in for the prize and everyone would have a hearty laugh at the end. But then he came in third

A theory:

 Chaplin’s eyes probably threw off the judges, since those baby blues couldn’t be seen in black and white. But Chaplin isn’t the only celebrity to have lost a look-alike contest of themselves to an impostor: The one-and-only Dolly Parton once lost a drag queen competition of her likeness.

While everyone was busy freaking out about Adele’s newest song “Hello,” Adele was pranking her fans by entering an Adele look-alike contest..
Adele took on the role of “Jenny,” a slow-talking nanny complete with a fake chin, nose and exaggerated lips, courtesy of makeup artists.
The real Adele stands backstage with a gaggle of impersonators who are quick to make comments about how long it’s taken the singer to come out with new music. One contestant even goes so far as to tell the group Adele would definitely like one of the impersonators — to which the real Adele doesn’t seem to disagree.
“Jenny” is a great actress, faking extreme nerves before she’s about to take the stage, and missing her cue to sing.
Even with all of the theatrics, and despite the fake chin, it only takes the impersonators a few seconds of the song “Make You Feel My Love” to realize that “Jenny” is not exactly who she said she was.
