    Do you ever see a picture of someone you speak to on the internet for the first time and think 'wow! i never expected her to look like THAT!' Wether it's because they're blonde and you thought they'd be brunette etc..

    Slightly different, but i just watched a video of Caitlyn on Toria's facebook page and the accent totally shocked me! Its weird, cos i know she lives in Luton, and my OH comes from Luton so i know full well what the accent is like but i dunno, i suppose i just expected to hear a local voice :rofl:

    Stupid random post i know, but hey! Just thought i'd see if anyone else does it lol

    If you heard me and some one from down south talking you could probably tell. All the english people on US tv had the same "propper" british accent.

    All the time! When we had that 'Put a voice to a name' thread recently I was baffled at all your accents girls!

    Oh and if you guys lived here you'd probably tell apart different states...Chicago accent, Boston accent, southern accents... you can sense it. :)


    Oh and Bexy and Rafwife are two people who I'd never imagined to look the way they do!

    TBH I don't think I've spoken to anyone on BnB vocally, but on other forums I've had that where I really didn't expect people to sound how they did - even though I knew they had whatever accent.
