Jensen and his brother are the perfect example of the mystery of genetics.

[quote] DNA contains all the information needed to build your body. Did you know that your DNA determines things such as your eye color, hair color, height, a nd even the size of your nose? The DNA in your cells is respons ible for these physical attribute as well as many others

The slightest difference in our siblings' DNA could make a huge difference in determining attractiveness or unattractiveness..

I find it fascinating.

There truly is just a subtle difference in the way Jensen looks, versus the way his brother looks. But the way it all comes together in our DNA, is the key to why Jensen looks so beautiful and his brother does not.

You have to think in the case of siblings where one is a hollywood star and the other isn't, that there's a lot of training and makeup and workouts and diets and surgeries that make the hollywood sibling so much hotter.

Makeup and hairstyling can work miracles.

Was she less glamorous in high school? Of course. Never underestimate how much diet, hair, hair coloring, skin care, makeup, etc. can do. It's amazing.

Yes, I know one family like this. The 5 brothers are all clearly related but very different. Three are above average but not head-turning. One hit the lottery and is very handsome with amazing genetics into his early 60s and looks at least 10 years younger than he is. The youngest was completed busted by 25 and didn’t get any combination of conventionally attractive traits. He’s the least ‘nice’ of the group, so there’s no personality to offset either. Maybe the older egg and sperm were played out.

Growing up I knew two brothers who were 2 years apart; the older was quite handsome and while the younger wasn't nearly as handsome he wasn't 'busted' like we've seen so far in this thread. However, when the younger hit puberty (or more aptly, puberty hit him) his looks radically changed and he went from unremarkable to stunning. He grew a foot, gained muscle mass, and because he was into sports, his whole body tightened up and filled out nicely. Also, his cock doubled (I was fooling around with both brothers but, no, not simultaneously). As we aged, the younger brother kept his looks but works at it diligently. The older brother let himself go after college and, as of the last time I saw him, a fat slob.

He then went to a different middle school than me. I saw him again for the first time in several years at a senior high school year football game, at first I didn't recognize him. His looks became askew-ed and weird. What was once a pretty boy turned into strange looking 17 year old. His his forehead and chin did not grow with the rest of his features and his eyes now looked too close together. He went from a score of almost 10 down to a 5 or 6 at best.
