Bridgette ‘Bri’ and Brad Jordan, of Centralia, Illinois, may share a last name with the basketball legend, but that is where the similarities between them and Michael Jordan end.
In contrast to their larger-than-life namesake standing at six feet six inches tall, the Jordans are the Guinness World Records-certified smallest siblings in the world.
The duo suffer from Majewski osteodysplastic primordial dwarfism type II – a rare illness that affects less than 200,000 people in the U.S. population associated with brain and skeletal abnormalities.

Bri Jordan, 23, stands at 27 inches and has to use a foot stool to get into bed, while her brother is 38 inches tall, which does not stop him from playing sports, according to the Huffington Post .
‘Bradley especially doesn't seem to have a problem with being shy,’ the siblings’ mother, Christy Jordan, told the Huffington Post. ‘They've always been in the public eye.’
Last year for a few months, Bri Jordan was also the record holder for ‘World's Smallest Woman,’ but the title has since been awarded to Jyoti Amge of Nagpur, India, who is just 24 inches tall.

The Jordan siblings may be small, but they will soon hit the big time with their own reality TV show on TLC called Big Tiny, which premieres on August 13.
The program will focus on the siblings’ day-to-day lives as they tackle common tasks that people of normal stature take for granted.
Ms Jordan, who weighs only 18lbs, is so small that she has to shower in the sink, and while she will go grocery shopping every week, getting the items into the cart is a tall order for her.

At 35lbs, 21-year-old Brad Jordan is somewhat of a jock. In the show, he will showcase his skills as a college cheerleader and a gymnast, as well as demonstrate his karate moves.
Besides the two diminutive siblings, the show will feature their older sister Brandi, who is of normal height, and their mother, a registered nurse.
While the Jordan siblings have their disability in common, they have separate career aspirations. The 23-year-old Bri hopes to become a fashion designer, while her brother dreams of the stage.
