Igor and Grishka Bogdanoff – fashion victims


Twin brothers Igor and Grishka Bogdanoff (or Bogdanov) are famous French celebrities. They are often called freaks, not only for their scientific machinations, but also for their specific appearance. According to rumors, numerous plastic surgeries caused facial deformities.
The boys were born in 1949 in France. They claim that their parents came from aristocratic Russian and Austrian families, and that their maternal grandfather was African-American tenor Roland Hayes.
More than 30 years ago, they were widely known in France as TV hosts. Their shows like Temps X (and more recently Rayons X) were about popular science and science fiction, space, distant stars, aliens and attracted a large number of viewers.
The career of Bogdanov brothers before plastics was connected with a grandiose scandal. The book God and Science, which became a bestseller in France, was criticized by the American cosmologist. The Bogdanovs were accused of plagiarism, ignorance of the elementary foundations of physics and mathematics, and the success of the book was explained by skillful juggling with complex scientific terms. The scandal was hushed up, and in 1998 the brothers defended their Ph.D. theses and continued to be engaged in pseudo-scientific research.
