For the second consecutive week, Laura Fernandez replaces Guido Kaczka in Welcome aboard (eltrece) and keep it that way the door of the Similars as one of the most entertaining segments of the program. This Tuesday, a man appeared who claimed to be twice as Freddie Mercury, the singer whose music was part of the lives of several generations.

Such was the resemblance of the contestant that Fernández did not need the usual support of the attendees to decipher the identity. However, this was not the case throughout the segment. Before welcoming her to the studio, Laurita received another man with facial features very similar to Ricardo Canaletti, but Francesca confused him with former president Fernando de la Rúa.

To maintain the mystery, Laurita barely opened the door so that she alone had the first opportunity to see the contestant, and not only did she express herself with emotion but she also threw a Chicana at everyone in the studio and especially at Valentina, one of the assistants. “I want to see everyone’s face when it appears”, expressed the driver and then added: “For me they have to know, even Valen who is like the weakest of the group”.

Despite the fact that the announcer and the other members of the staff were heard shyly laughing, the presenter added that she greatly appreciated her partner, but that “sometimes he went the other way”.

Once Laurita opened the door, a tall man came in wearing a tank top and skintight jeans, with short hair slicked back and a mustache. To complete the look, she wore a ribbon on her arm that matched the black belt with metallic studs.

“I can’t not know him. Plus, it’s the same!”, Valentina expressed with emotion, while Francesca also made gestures to know who it was. For her part, the presenter was encouraged to ask him to repeat the entry so that the public could once again appreciate “the attitude with which he entered the studio.”

The participant agreed and simulated showing himself to the cameras again and for the first time, and in this way, he walked with a certain swing and his hands in his pockets. Later, Laurita asked him to make some gesture that was characteristic of the character, and by that time, no one had pitched ideas or clues, but everyone seemed to be clear on the name.

“I didn’t even ask him the name because I already know it’s him”Fernandez expressed, but before revealing it, he gave Valentina an opportunity to confirm if she really knew that it was the Queen’s vocalist. “Even his teeth are the same!”, said the assistant, and the driver came up with an unusual question in relation to the teeth.

“Stop, were you born that way or did you get your teeth done for the character?”, launched, and the contestant was somewhat puzzled at first, but he reacted quickly and commented that he always had his teeth like this but since he had a beard, the resemblance to the singer was not very noticeable.

The man took the opportunity to tell the funny anecdote and with which he was first associated with Mercury. Thanks to the fact that one day the shaver ran out of charge, he could not shave his mustache and went to a bowling alley like he was. Once at the door, security personnel associated him with the singer and let him enter.

For a moment and after hearing the contestant’s story, everyone forgot that none of them revealed the name, so Valentina interrupted the story and said: “¡Sos Freddie Mercury!”, and Laurita closed the presentation of the double congratulating him because he was “just the same”.
