Who are the Hensel twins?


Conjoined twins Abby and Brittany Hensel have a reality television series on TLC, chronicling their lives as 20-somethings as they graduate from college at Bethel University in St. Paul, Minnesota and search for jobs. David Moye explains in the Huffington Post that the dicephalic parapagus twins have separate heads but share one body.

Lucy Wallis of BBC News explains that the twins have two sets of lungs, two hearts, two stomachs, one liver, one large intestine and one reproductive system. The twins co-ordinate their body with Abby controlling the right hand side and Brittany controlling the left. The twins also share two arms and two legs. However, Wallis explains that the two have a height difference with Abby as the taller of the two, which means Brittany must stand on her toes to help the two maintain balance. The twins' reality show focuses on their daily lives. Show installments were shot in London, where they travelled for the summer after graduation. However, the reality show is not the only media outlet covering the twins' lives. The Daily Mail explains that they first appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1996 and the cover of Life magazine before agreeing to allow TLC to document their lives at age 16.
