Selling Sunset season five has arrived, and that means the return of everyone's favourite bosses: Jason and Brett Oppenheim.

Given the fact that we're, you know, five seasons and over three years in, you'd *think* we'd be able to tell the 45-year-old twins apart by now - but not going to lie, it's still pretty hard.

Admittedly it should be a little bit more obvious this season, given that Jason Oppenheim is in a relationship with Chrishell Stause and the pair are always joined at the hip. But it turns out not all Selling Sunset fans have always been able to tell the identical twins apart.

As one wrote on Twitter, "The twins on Selling Sunset are so identical, I can’t even tell them apart," while another put, "I've rewatched all seasons of Selling Sunset and I still can't tell the twins apart."

Thankfully, some viewers have taken to the internet to share their tactics for telling the brothers apart, and it's exactly what we need. Keep this with you next time you're rewatching all the drama...

Thanks to a handy Reddit thread, fans have been busy talking each other through Jason and Brett's differences, from appearance to voice and personality.

One viewer wrote, "Jason has a pointier chin and more pronounced jawline, more heart shaped. Brett’s face is more square with [a] thicker jaw. His chin is square too. That’s how I instantly know. Their voices are different too. Brett’s is lower and more monotone, Jason is more animated."

Honestly, we appreciate the detail. Others pointed out the height difference between the brothers. "I feel like every picture I see of them, Brett is taller" one wrote, with another adding that "Jason is smaller in general. He's shorter, and has a smaller head."

According to fans, there's also a difference in the twins' smiles. One shared, "Jason smiles and shows his upper and lower teeth. Brett only shows his upper teeth. That’s how I tell them apart."

Another agreed, adding, "Jason’s smile and teeth are bigger. Brett’s stubble is a bit darker. His voice is also more coarse than Jason’s." Very thorough, thanks guys.

Aside from all the physical differences between the pair, viewers also shared some v handy hacks for keeping on top of who is who. "Put it on closed captioning and look for the name in parenthesis. Lol," wrote one. Wishing we'd thought of this sooner TBH.

Selling Sunset season five is now streaming on Netflix, and as well as Chrishell and Jason's relationship going public, the series also looks into the fallout between Christine Quinn and the rest of the real estate agents.
