Ted Cruz Doppelganger Takes Her 15 Minutes and Stars in a Porn Film

Searcy Hayes, a 21-year-old mother from Natchez, Mississippi, went on Maury for an episode that aired last week to prove to her fiancé that their son was biologically his. She got so, so much more when the internet realized she looked uncannily like our favorite recycled condom Ted Cruz.


According to the Huffington Post, Hayes will cash in on our human centipede of a meme machine, and accept an offer from XHamster to star in her own porn film with her fiancé. For six minutes of filmed sex, the website reports, XHamster will pay her $10,000.

“We wanted Searcy because overnight she became a viral meme,” said the porn site’s spokesperson Mike Kulich in an interview with HuffPost. “I think a lot of XHamster viewers really wanted to see her in action.”

Hayes said she was fine with the idea: “Everything is going to support my family,” she said. “I want to get my son whatever he wants.”

Hayes, who had never heard of the candidate, is baffled.

“I never thought that somebody would compare me to, you know, like a president or whatever he was before he started running for president or anything. I mean, I’m still kinda shocked and amazed about it but God does what he wants to do,” Hayes said in an interview with the Daily Mail about the comparison.

“I look through the Facebook and the comments and everything and it’s cruel and everything, but as far as me actually getting rude with them and saying, ‘Look, y’all need to stop,’ or whatever, I could care less.”
