These twins on TikTok are from Metro Vancouver and now live in the U.S., playing lacrosse for Arizona State University.

They've challenged their American friends to some Canadian trivia in their TikTok videos, getting hilarious responses that show just how little some people in the neighbouring country know about the Great White North.

The twins, Bella and Gigi Gaspar, share the videos on their account, @thegaspartwins_, and any Canadian watching will probably be shaking their head in disbelief. In one TikTok, the twins asked their teammates how many people they think live in Canada.

Answers ranged from 1 million to 10 million. The most accurate answer was "more than seven," which technically is true. To set the record straight for every American reading, it's around 38 million.


Asking our American teammates to guess how many people live in Canada 🇨🇦🇺🇸 #canada #america

As a lacrosse player, she was probably disappointed in this person's answer about Canada's national sports. Hint: Ice-fishing is not one of them!


Solid 50% 👍 🇨🇦🇺🇸 #canada #america @James Don

Any sports-related questions seemed to be a no-go for the Americans out there.

Even when they got the answers right, it was still pretty rough getting there.


They’re learning🇨🇦🇺🇸 #canada #america #trivia @emmacarlsonnnn

The confidence someone had when they named Ontario as a Canadian city is amazing.


Tal’s confidence >>>>>🇨🇦🇺🇸 #canada #america

To be fair, they also asked a Canadian friend some American trivia. The difference is painfully obvious, though.


Reply to @francisbegbie1 SO IMPRESSIVE! @ERIKA #canada #america #trivia 🇺🇸🇨🇦

They also highlight some hilarious differences between the countries and how people pronounce words.


Words Americans and Canadians pronounce differently🇨🇦🇺🇸 #canada #america

According to the ASU website, Bella and Gigi are from Burnaby, B.C., and now each play as defenders on the lacrosse team at the university.
