Ina Garten and Ellie Krieger - lookalikes?


My boyfriend thinks I'm crazy, so I need some validation here.
I think that Ina Garten, of "The Barefoot Contessa" looks like an older, heavier version of Ellie Krieger of "Healthy Appetite with Ellie Krieger." Seriously, I think Ina could be Ellie's mother. Or a future version of Ellie, after Ellie gives up the healthy lifestyle.


What do you think? Am I crazy, or do they look very much alike?

They even have the same dimples and the same nuance in their voice. I'll bet they really are mothe

I noticed this the first time I saw a commercial for Ellie's show. I completely agree with you. Right before I found your poll I had looked up their pictures and showed them to my boyfriend. He said they have the same nose. I swear Ellie could really be Ina's daughter.

I was just watching her show for the first time and found this discussion because I googled "Ellie Krieger related to barefoot contessa?" I thought it was mother daughter. Eyes are similar, but the voice, cadence, manerisms, etc are very close. I suppose they are both from Long Island, NY. I also wonder if it is the same production company for both shows since even the music is similar. Oh well as my science teacher in 5th grade used to say "great minds think alike";)

Yes they resemble each other in many ways. Their expressions, mannerisms, and even voice inflections seem to be remarkably similar if they're not in some way closely related.

I think you're absolutely right, but it's not only about them looking alike. They also have the same manner of speaking: slowly and sweetly. When I first saw Ellie Krieger, I was convinced that she was the daughter of the Barefoot Contessa.

I totally agree, and I agree with WhiplashGirlChild that it is their voices too, which you can't see from the pics. I found this entry b/c I was googling them to see if they were related!

It's mostly their noses. And in the way they speak, which you can't tell from the photos.

I think I see it in their noses and cheekbones, but that's about it. But the ends of their noses, yeah.

Oh, and their mouths look similar, too. (I think I forgot to mention this one)

No worries, though -- I still think you're crazy. :p ((winks))

I see some resemblance in the cheeks, chin, nose, and eye shape. But their coloring is completely different, which kinda throws it all off (imo). But it's hard to tell, because of their difference in body-size. (An added bit of weight can hide so much lovely bone-structure.)

I don't know. I see a slight resemblance. If I look closely, I can see similarities between their individual features. But, I don't see a huge resemblance between their faces as a whole.
