We consider a variant of the secretary problem where each candidate has an identical twin who applies for the same job. We find both an optimal strategy to choose one of the best twins and the probability of success, as well as the assymptotics for this probability (as the number of candidates tends to infinity). This is joint work with Grzegorz Kubicki.
