KENNY ROGERS, YOU'RE THE MAN
you are over 40 and a little sentimental, you may remember Kenny
Rogers as the man who complained that it was a fine time for Lucille
to leave him. "We've had some bad times, we've had some sad times,this
hurtin's just too deep to heal," he went on. "You picked a fine
time to leave me, Lucille." Or something like that. He had earlier
- and with equal lack of success - asked Ruby not to take her love
to town, but since 1983 does not seem to have troubled the British
America, though, he is re-emerging as something of a cultural phenomenon
- a large number of men over 40 have adopted the Kenny Rogers look.This
was first noticed by a graphic designer called Jaimie Muehlhausen
and is charted on his website, www.menwholooklikekennyrogers.com.
what are we looking for? The hair should be long and swept back
in a manner that suggests it is struggling against a strong wind.
It should be grey or white. The beard should be trimmed and ideally
set off an all-year tan. Think Noel Edmonds, or perhaps Richard
Branson, after 20 years of lunch. The site features a gallery of
men with neatly trimmed beards, one of whom is named Kenny of the
Month. There is even a celebrity section - Ernest Hemingway, at
one point in his career, sported the Kenny Rogers look.
site began as an art installation (which says a lot about the state
of modern art). Muehlhausen noticed the resemblance and began taking
photographs of men who looked like Kenny. "Some people dream of
large homes with hot tubs and their own beer tap; others dream of
yachts and fine wines," he writes. "Me? A good photo of some guy
with silver hair, a little on the long side, and a neatly trimmed
a professional operation, is MenWhoLookLikeKennyRogers. There are
tips on acquiring the look, and a long list of places regarded as
the natural habitat of such men, which include drag-car racing,
pool tournaments and car-accessory shops. The site also has its
own gift shop, where you can order a book called The Mullet - Hairstyle
of the Gods. Kenny's lawyers have already been in touch. According
to Muehlhausen, they had been asked to pass on the message that
"Kenny thinks it's hilarious". Good for Kenny.

MARK HUGHES COBB c.2001 New York Times News Service
Rogers has collected Grammys, County Music Association awards and
other accolades. At last count, there were five TV movies based
around his "The Gambler" character. His name shines from a chain
of hot chicken restaurants. Kenny Rogers, should he choose to, could
throw some weight around. But his response to the Web site Men Who
Look Like Kenny Rogers (www.menwholooklikekennyrogers.com) showed
joviality sometimes stereotyped with burly physiognomy.
Muehlhausen, creator of the site, said Rogers' lawyer called him
just last week. "His quote was 'Kenny Rogers thinks its hilarious,'
" Muehlhausen said.
Rogers is right.
site with the lengthy name is filled with pictures of men who, by
dint of genetics, fate or plastic surgery, look something like Kenny
Rogers. The site has been up only a few months, but it's catching
fire. Muehlhausen said national magazines are planning features
and that he's done "20 or 30" radio interviews, and one for a Denmark
television station. "I think it's one of those things people can
just generally relate to: 'Aw, I could have thought of that,' "
said Muehlhausen in an interview from his home near San Diego. "And
there's the Everyman kind of thing. Everybody's got somebody in
their family who looks kind of like Kenny."
said the idea had been brewing inside his head for several years.
"About eight years ago, I just kind of started noticing these guys,
at the fair, at the mall," he said. "I remember turning to a friend
of mine going 'Hey, check it out: That guy looks just like Kenny
Rogers!' " The beat went on. He began to spot Kenny-alikes everywhere.
"It's kind of like a bad song getting stuck in your head," he said.
"The more you think about it, the more you see them."
"Kenny Spotting Tips" on the site, Muehlhausen offers suggestions
that include state fairs, construction sites, Home Depot, bars with
sawdust floors, church, Renaissance "faires," pool tournaments and
Harley shops. Muehlhausen started the site with a few photos of
his own, some he had snapped and some found on the Internet. After
launching the site and notifying a few friends, others sent pictures.
The site now has more than 125 Kennys. Spread over several galleries
are such lookalikes as Middle Eastern Kenny, Disneyland Kenny, Pig
Liquor Kenny, Guidance Counselor Kenny, Evil Eyebrow Kenny and Aye-Aye
Kenny. Professional Kenny impersonators get their own spot. Celebrity
Kennys are kind of eerie, from the ringers like Ernest Hemingway
to ones who are a stretch, like Sean Connery (with beard) and John
Entwhistle of The Who. Some of the Kennys are far-fetched. "In the
early days, I started off just darn happy somebody sent me a photo,"
Muehlhausen said. "So some made it up just by virtue of that. "But
as it goes on, the photos get better. I set some guidelines. No
Jerry Garcia. No C. Everett Koop. Koop doesn't even have a mustache!
You've got to have the beard; you've got to have enough hair."
current Kenny of the Month is Hot Tub Kenny. This hirsute homeboy
is not for the faint of heart. "I got an e-mail from a woman in
Wisconsin who is in love with Hot Tub Kenny," Muehlhausen said.
"I'm going to forward it. Could be a Kenny love connection. I'm
really holding out for that."
he spends "much more time than my wife would like," he only needs
about 30 minutes a day to keep the site running. Muehlhausen works
as a graphic designer to pay the bills. MWLLKR is a nighttime labor
of love. "This kind of stupidness fits really well on the Internet,"

"Once I noticed the phenomenon, there was no escaping it. Basically,
itÕs these guys who reach a certain age and they decide to grow
a beard. They are from an era where you wore your hair a little
longer. When you combine the two, they end up looking like Kenny
Rogers. Most guys donÕt really realize it, while some guys actually
cultivate the look."
has found that sightings of "The Gambler" most often happen at Home

he says it is not a commercial venture.
started off with an idea to do an art project, like an Andy Warhol
collection of Polaroids. But then I realized this is something that
is perfect for the internet. ItÕs a pop culture thing like [the
Ō80s haircut website] mulletsgalore.com. ItÕs striking a nerve with
people." The site describes how to become your own Kenny Rogers:
"Keep your beard trimmed neater than Richard SimmonsÕ tank top drawer.
Make sure itÕs white so it will stand out against that creepy, year-round
tan. If you are trying to pull off the modern Kenny look, itÕs okay
to shave down to a goatee however you run the risk of looking like
every other 50-year-old who just latched onto that Ōhip new lookÕ
the kids are into."
asks website visitors to send in their own Kenny Rogers lookalikes.
"I have people sending me photos from all over. One guy sent me
three or four from airports." Muehlhausen admits to being sneaky
when he goes out in the field. "A lot of times I just try and get
a picture of my wife who stands near them. They end up being in
the photo." Each photo on the site has its own caption. ThereÕs
"Santa Kenny," "Disneyland Kenny" and "Surf Industry Kenny."
tried to be real careful not to make an exact reference to the real
Kenny," said Muehlhausen. "If he happens to see it I donÕt want
him to get pissed off and come after me. The president of his fan
club e-mailed me and said she thought it was hilarious. Who knows,
maybe weÕll start a Kenny revival."
says wacky morning radio shows are helping to spread the word about
www.menwholooklikekennyrogers.com. "Some DJ from a big radio station
in Scotland e-mailed and asked if we could do a live on-the-air
interview. WeÕre setting up a time for that now." Website visitors
can click onto "Tips on how to look like Kenny Rogers." One of the
tips addresses attitude: "ItÕs country coolÉa down-home guy who
loves babies, dogs, pork rinds, Jack Daniels, quail hunting, and
gravy. HeÕs got a Laz-E-Boy recliner in the den and one of those
above-ground pools in the backyard." But, Muehlhausen admits, "The
real Kenny is probably horrified at the thought of all that."
Country Radio Network
Who Look Like Kenny Rogers
internet is a wierd wacky place and there certainly is something
for anyone. Even for those who, as they get older, unintentionally
begin to look like Kenny Rogers. (And if you're intentionally trying
to look like that suave country star, by all means, keep reading!)
Muehlhausen is a graphic designer who one day woke up to the reality
that a lot of men look like Kenny Rogers. For most of us, we'd probably
say "Hey, Uncle Roger does look a little like 'The Gambler'" and
leave it at that. But not Jaimie. Working in the creative field
of graphic design, and posessing a keen eye for the unusual, he
thought it might make an interesting art project. Kinda like Andy
Warhol and his collection of Campbell Soup cans. So he began compiling
pictures of people he'd see on the street who resembled Kenny. Then
along came the internet which he says was the perfect outlet for
such a foolish endeavor. The result is www.menwholooklikekennyrogers.com.
In the photo gallery, Jaimie's own pictures hold court with those
submitted by others. All the look-a-likes have nicknames like "Suit
and Tie Kenny", "Roller Coaster Kenny", "Chick Magnet Kenny" or
the current photo of the month, "Hot Tub Kenny". (And he really
DOES look like Kenny!) Some of the resemblences are uncanny, but
for others, simply having longer hair and a white beard is enough
to gain access to this wacky club. And if your Uncle Roger or father-in-law
is starting to look like Kenny, you might want to submit a picture
of your own! Jaimie provides a list of places that are ripe for
camera hunting Kenny's mirror image. He suggests Home Depot, Waffle
House, State Fairs, Casinos and of course, NASCAR events.
is also a section full of tongue in cheek tips on how to look like
Kenny Rogers. For instance, "Grow hair longer than is currently
fashionable. If it is not white or gray, seek a professional stylist
for coloring." As for clothing, Jaimie suggests a sweater thrown
over the shoulders for a modern Kenny look, but says "The Gambler"
vest look is best and that no outfit is complete without a big gold
necklace. Jaimie says his site is not an attempt to make fun of
the singer or of people who resemble him. Okay, well maybe it does
poke a little fun, but it's all good natured.
those who might search out Kenny photos in public places, he advises
people to be polite. The last thing he wants to do is make someone
angry. Especially Kenny.

Who Look Like Kenny Rogers
no question about it. Kenny Rogers is one sexy fella. But the chances
of running into The Gambler are pretty dang slim. So why not drool
over a few Kenny lookalikes instead? Browse the Kenny wannabes gallery
or just focus on the Kenny of the Month. Heck, there's even a guide
on how to look like Kenny yourself. Don't forget to copy down the
yummy corn muffin recipe available on the site.

the dog-eat-dog world of celebrity impersonation, some gigs are
easier than others. Not a lot of people naturally resemble Steve
Buscemi or Rodney Dangerfield, and perhaps that's a blessing. But
any man over the age of 62 with a full head of silver hair and a
finely trimmed beard looks a heck of a lot like country megastar
Kenny Rogers. Boy-howdy!! Menwholooklikekennyrogers.com has possibly
the longest URL in recorded history, but all that typing pays off
in the end. Inside are galleries of professional and amateur "gamblers,"
almost all of whom would warrant a double-take if spotted waiting
in line for some dee-licious roast poultry parts. Submit your own
Kenny-esque photos or just sit back and enjoy the countrified ride.
The site offers handy tips on how to look like Kenny, from his unfashionably
long locks down to his black leather vest. It also advises the would-be
Kenny spotter on the best places to find Kenny look-alikes. We suggest
checking the gun show, Hardees, and K-Mart first. You can't miss
with Cracker Barrel. And always remember, folks, there'll be time
enough for countin' when the dealing's done. Preach it Kenny!

ROGERS CLONES RUNNING RAMPANT?
Calif. (Wireless Flash) -- A California artist has uncovered a startling
phenomenon: Hundreds of older men look an awful lot like Kenny Rogers.
So artist Jaimie Muehlhausen has started a website which tracks
worldwide sightings of white-haired, bearded men who resemble the
country crooner. Muehlhausen says he first noticed the Rogers phenomenon
a few years ago but only recently launched the website, which has
photos of Kenny clones from as far away as Sweden. He admits most
Kenny clones he's photographed don't realize they look like the
country singer until he tells them-- and many are flattered to be
compared to "The Gambler."

DAILY BUZZ - Men Who Look Like Kenny Rogers
you run across a Web site that's so stupid
you just HAVE to share it with as many people as possible.
Remember Mahir mania a year ago? Well, that's the way I feel about
the Men Who Look Like Kenny Rogers web site. As the site states,
there are a LOT of men of a certain age that resemble Kenny Rogers.
It's not a bad thing, it's just one of those eerie quirks of fate
that can keep you from falling asleep late at night. Face it, Kenny
doppelgangers are everywhere, at the mall, in restaurants, in the
tanning bed next to you. Yikes! Anyway, Men Who Look like Kenny
Rogers goes a step further than just documenting the strange trend
with a few photographs... in fact, they even offer tips on how to
make yourself resemble the aging country and western singer and
chicken entrepreneur. So, if you have an infatuation with "The Gambler,"
or perhaps your spouse favors "The Coward of the County," then snap
a few pics and cruise on over to the site. Personally, I really
like Kenny...but it's the younger, more sprightly Kenny I love...
the one who belted out the lyrics "I just dropped in, to see what
condition my condition was in." And while you're at the site, don't
forget to copy down Kenny's recipe for corn muffins... they're delicious!"
Who Look Like Kenny Rogers --"It's downright scary."
Kenny Rogers! :::: by Carolyn
are a lot of men out there, over a certain age of course, who bear
a striking resemblance to Kenny Rogers. You know, the Gambler? My
dad actually sort of looks like Kenny. Well, he probably looks a
bit more like Dan Haggarty--Grizzly Adams to those of you who don't
know who Dan Haggerty is, but close enough to Kenny for those who
care. To be perfectly honest, my dad probably wouldn't be too happy
to be compared to either of those guys, but what are you gonna do?
It's kind of weird how universal a "look" Kenny has. I mean once
a man starts going gray and puts on a little weight, he's all about
Kenny Rogers. If you're not careful, the next thing you know, your
husband or dad is going to be wanting to open a chicken roasting
restaurant and going on tour! Or, probably not. He may just want
to send his picture to Men Who Look Like Kenny Rogers. This site
is dedicated to the thousands of men worldwide who spot that distinctive
Kenny look. There's also a spot that features the recipe for Kenny's
famous corn muffins! Now who could pass that up??
Men Who Look Like Kenny Interview :::: by Ellen
gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to
walk away, know when to run." Ahh, the Gambler. Who doesn't remember
that country classic? Well, maybe a lot of you don't remember it,
but it was a big hit, trust me. Although Kenny Rogers may not be
as popular as he once was,there are still an awful lot of men out
there, that look a lot like him! Thankfully we're lucky enough to
have Jamie Muelhausen around to chronicle this phenomena at Men
who look like Kenny Rogers. I had a chance to chat with Jamie about
his site, Kenny, Abe Vigoda and more.
How long have you had the site up and running?
About two months.
Are you a Kenny Rogers or country music fan?
Not really. I like a lot of alt. country, and who doesn't at like
Dwight Yoakam? But, I'm not really a huge fan of the pop-country
coming out of Nashville over the last 15 years. And I was really
never a Kenny fan, although he's had an amazing career.
What possessed you to come up with this idea? A lot of "Kennys"
in your neck of the woods?
JM: It was really more of an accumulation over the years that started
it. I originally thought of it at least 8 years ago, and, over the
years the idea just sort of continued to fester. I was originally
going to make some sort of art project out of it. However, once
I got involved in the web, I realized that this is the perfectly
stupid kind of thing that deserves a spot on the internet. Now that
I'm actually doing it, I notice more Kennys all the time. They're
Any chance of posting other recipes in the future?
Probably not. However, I DO get a lot of hits from search engines
from the corn muffin recipe, so maybe I need to rethink this.
Have you heard anything from Kenny or his representatives?
No, but I know the day will come and I just hope and pray that it's
not in the form of legal papers. I've been pretty careful to make
this site about the men who LOOK like Kenny rather than Kenny himself.
I did receive an e-mail from the president of his fan club and she
thought the site was pretty hilarious, so I'm holding out hope that
Kenny has a good sense of humor about it also.
How many entries do you get a week, roughly?
In the beginning I mostly found stuff on the net or took pictures
myself. Now I'm getting 3-4 submissions a day. I'm really amazed.
Is there a certain criteria you follow before posting pictures?
If someone sent you a pic that didn't really look like Kenny, would
you use it?
For the most part, I try to make sure they look quite a bit like
Kenny. I do get a lot of pictures that look more like white-haired
bikers than Kenny. Also bald guys with white beards. Kenny isn't
bald! I've made a couple of slight exceptions. One guy was obviously
too young with blondish-brown hair. But you could see that he will
look like Kenny sometime down the road, so I call him Soon-to-Be
Kenny. I try to make people who send stuff in happy.
You've been getting quite a bit of press lately, what do you attribute
that to? Is Kenny going through something of a renaissance?
I think it has more to do with the site just being a funny idea
that other people can relate to. I don't think it's Kenny himself.
It's kind of one of those ideas that people think they could have
thought of themselves. And, to tell you the truth, I've been working
it really hard to get the word out.
I really love the Tips section--have you seen a lot of "Kenny's"
at these places?
Well, I don't frequent guns shows, so I'm just assuming on that
one, but, definitely state fairs, malls and casinos are hot spots.
Do you take many of the pictures yourself or are they mostly sent
Now they are mostly sent to me and I just edit out the bad ones.
I still keep my eyes peeled for a good Kenny wherever I go and I
always carry a digital camera with me.
Any future plans for the site?
Perhaps a Rate-a-Kenny section. And I'm deciding how to break up
the photo galleries a little more efficiently. But, I think the
basic idea for the site is pretty well represented right now. I'll
just keep fine-tuning it here and there.
Any plans for companion sites--maybe a womenwholooklikelorettalynn
One radio station suggested a menwholooklikeabevigoda, but, no,
no companion sites really. I can't think of anyone who embodies
a look more than Kenny Rogers. My goal for this site is to find
a woman who looks like Kenny Rogers and perhaps and Asian man who
looks like Kenny. I'll definitely come up with other sites in the
future though. Just something completely different.
Anything else you care to add?
Maybe just that I'd like to dispel any myth that I, myself, am obsessed
with Kenny Rogers. It's really almost not about him at all. I'd
also like to thank everyone at The Bla-Bla Network for their support
and help. I'm very, very pleased to be associated with Bla-Bla.
It really helped give me credibility (if you can actually get credibility
for a site like this). Doing the site is a lot of fun.
