What does a Mexican immigrant cook do after he wins a $7 million jackpot?

Eduardo Reyes, from Staten Island, took a day off from his job as a cook at Colonnade Diner on March 16th. He was running errands in Manhattan when he popped into a liquor store and bought $50 worth of Golden ticket scratch-offs.

Days before his purchase, he had a bit of a premonition: “I had a dream two days before that I had a lot of money,” Reyes told Univision. His dream probably looked a little something like this:

Walter Mercado, someone might be coming for your job.

Thirty two years ago, Reyes immigrated to the states and started working in restaurants as a dishwasher earning $160 a week. His hard work later earned him a promotion to cook.

While accepting his ginormous check of $4.36 million, after taxes, he said: “I have always worked hard my whole life.” As of now, he has no plans of quitting his job.

And that’s how Mexicans do. #Trabajadores ??

This Woman Looks Just Like Ted Cruz And She’s Not The Only One

With so many people on this planet – 7.4 billion and counting – it’s been said that we each have at least one doppelgänger walking around Earth. If you’re lucky, you’ve got more than one doppelgänger. Ted Cruz is one of the lucky ones. Why? Because Cruz has at least five *confirmed* look-alikes – and those are just the humans.

There’s this recent guest from “Maury”…

Don’t worry, he is NOT the father. BTW, Searcy Hayes, the woman whose appearance on “Maury” made her a viral sensation, has reportedly agreed to do a short porn video for $10,000.

The Internet was having so much fun with this one that they began pushing a rumor that Ted Cruz was actually the singer of Stryper.

The Cruz-Stryper thing became so huge that Jimmy Kimmel actually asked Cruz about it during a recent interview…
