(Scroll down for video) A young woman became an Internet sensation because she looks like Ted Cruz.

21-year-old Searcy Hayes of Natchez, Mississippi, seems to be having a hard time with her newfound fame since appearing on the Maury Povich show.

Hayes became a viral sensation after viewers of the Maury Povich show decided that the female is the doppelganger of Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz.

Hayes was on the show to prove to her boyfriend that she was faithful. Her boyfriend, Freddie Green, 25, accused her of cheating on him.

However, she passed a polygraph test and a DNA test proved that Green was the father of her 3-month-old son.

She appeared again on the show after a photo of her next to the presidential hopeful went viral. Many people questioned if she was the sister of Ted Cruz.

Numerous websites printed side by side photos showing Hayes with Cruz.

Hayes does not think that she is related to Cruz, but she is willing to take a DNA test to see if she is related to him in any way.
