Yes, the rumors are true… we’ve caught twin-fever here at Nous. And who could blame us? The lovely Magruder sisters aren’t truly identical, but with just one small beauty mark to tell them apart, they might as well be! Standing tall at a true 5′ 9″, Olivia (below left) and Madeline (below right) are 17 and hail from Maryland. The girls are attached at the hip on and off set, and their bond translates to some seriously stunning photos – but don’t worry – from Olivia’s playful sense of humor to Madeline’s secret celeb crush, there’s plenty that sets them apart. Scroll down to find out for yourself. We are thrilled to introduce to you: The Magruder Twins!linebreak

If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why?

I’m most passionate about horses. I love spending time with my horse and taking her to competitions. There is nothing like the bond between horse and rider.

Which superpower would you want?

Time travel.  I would want to experience different time periods and what life was like during them, and still be able to return to present day.

What’s your favorite punctuation mark?

The quotation mark. It’s always fun to quote someone.

Can you hula hoop?

Yes! I can jump rope with a hula hoop too!

What’s under your bed?

I have nothing under my bed except occasionally my cat, it’s her favorite hideout.

Have you ever prank called someone?

One time my twin and I prank called my best friend. She would not get off of Netflix, so we went into the other room and called her, pretending like we were the Netflix company calling to tell her that the account ran out of ‘watching time.’ She believed the call, but later found out it was us and went back to watching.

How many bones have you broken?

I’ve broken a bone in my foot two different times while bathing my horse in sandals. The first time, she moved over and stepped on my foot. The second time, she spooked and jumped over buckets of shampoo, landing on my other foot. Don’t ever bathe a horse wearing open-toed shoes!

What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat?

I love food and will try just about anything! The only food I strongly dislike is olives. They are WAY too salty.

Where would you take your dream vacation?

I’ve always dreamed of going to Tahiti. I love the warm tropical climates, white sandy beaches, and crystal clear water.

Which emoji would best capture your essence?

I definitely have to pick the palm tree emoji. 🌴🌴🌴🌴

Favorite movie or TV show soundtrack?

Titanic. My favorite song from the film is “My Heart Will Go On.”
