Searcy Hayes from Natchez, Miss., said she never heard of Ted Cruz before Maury Povich show-watchers pointed out their facial similarities.
“I don’t know his positions and I’ve never seen him, so I don’t know if he’s done a good enough job to be reelected,” Hayes told The Huffington Post.
Hayes’ fiancé, Freddie Green, accused her of cheating on him, so she went on “Maury” to be DNA tested. There, she proved that her 3-month-old son was fathered by Green.
After her episode, viewers made her face go viral by comparing her to Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz.
Porn website XHamster offered Hayes $10,000 to film a 6-minute sex tape with her fiancé after her face and name catapulted into internet fame, The Huffington Post reported.
She said yes.
Her fiancé was excited about the offer, because $10,000 could help pay off their house and buy a truck.
“It’s kind of exciting and shocking to know she’s famous — she’s more famous than Madonna!” Green said. “I’m with a star.”
