‘Extreme Sisters’: Who Are Anna and Lucy? They’ve Also Been on ‘Botched’
Many people would say they have a special bond with their sister. But few people are as close to their sibling as the stars of TLC’s newest show, Extreme Sisters. The series — which premieres April 25 — focuses on five pairs of sisters with unusually — and some would say uncomfortably — close relationships. That includes Anna and Lucy, a pair of twins who may look familiar to avid fans of reality TV.
These ‘Extreme Sisters’ stars share everything — even a boyfriend
Anna and Lucy DeCinque are sisters from Perth, Australia, who claim to be “the world’s most identical twins.” The two are so close, they do everything together. They even share the same boyfriend, a man named Ben. Now, they’re hoping to achieve their dream of both being pregnant at the same time with Ben’s baby.
“We think of each other as one person,” they explained in a teaser for the show.
Anna and Lucy were also on ‘Botched
The twins are sharing their story with the world on Extreme Sisters, but this isn’t the first time they’ve been on reality TV. The pair was featured in a 2016 episode of the E! series Botched.
In the episode, Anna and Lucy turned to Dr. Paul Nassif and Dr. Terry Dubrow for help fixing their non-identical breasts.
“Growing up we were flat chested, A, completely nothing,” the twins shared in a preview for the episode. “So we found our plastic surgeon through the yellow pages, we didn’t really research, which we should’ve. We just wanted breasts. Waking up from surgery we looked at our breasts and were like, ‘I just don’t think they’re identical.'”
These twin sisters were on another TLC special
Anna and Lucy aren’t the only Extreme Sisters cast members with some experience in reality TV. Brittany and Briana Salyers (née Deane) were featured on the 2019 TLC special Our Twinsane Wedding. It chronicled their wedding to another set of identical twins, Josh and Jeremy Salyers. They four met at a festival for twins in Twinsburg, Ohio. Briana immediately fell for Jeremy, while Brittany was drawn to Josh. Both Brittany and Briana and Jeremy and Josh had dreamed of marrying twins, so it seemed like fate.
In Extreme Sisters, Brittany and Briana — who share a home with their husbands and are so similar they had the same SAT scores — are both pregnant. (Brittany welcomed her baby in early 2021.)
In a 2018 interview with People, Brittany explained that while her and her sister’s children will be cousins, genetically, they’ll be more like siblings.
“When we have children, my and Josh’s children will be genetic siblings to Briana and Jeremy’s children,” Brittany says. “Even though they’re cousins, they’re technically genetic siblings. We imagine it will be like two moms and two dads all raising our families together.”
Extreme Sisters premieres Sunday, April 25 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
