Couple on a blind date learn that they’re brother and sister

Pin it

After months of flirtatious online correspondence, Sarah Kemp and George Bentley decided to finally meet up. Turns out the two had an awful lot in common. A little too much, in fact. In an incestuous, Arrested Development-esque plot twist, the pair just so happened to be long-lost brother and sister. And you thought you had some awkward first dates. Kemp describes the incident in the Daily Record as such:

"To meet your long-lost brother, in a bar, after over thirty years would be something by itself….But to meet him in those circumstances – on a date, for crying out loud – really is something else. We obviously had far more in common than first thought."

The two were separated following their parents divorce; Kemp kept her ex's last name, so Bentley had been unable to track her down prior to their date.

Don't worry. In case you were wondering, the date didn't get very far before they figured it out. And you can rest assured this probably won't happen to you, unless your luck is super bad (or maybe good?). An actual bookie places the odds of this happening at  "500-million-to-one."
