Michelle is played by the Olsen twins, who are commonly assumed to be identical twins (At least, I always assumed they were.) But the Olsen twins are not actually identical twins; they just looked enough alike as young children that they could believably play the same role. Whether or not Nicky and Alex are played by identical twins, I think we can easily accept, based on this Olsen-clue, that the characters might not be identical twins whose appearances, upon reaching adolescence, diverged. Possibilities: First, there is the possibility that Stephanie is simply herself, Stephanie Tanner, and hasn't time-traveled yet.
They still looked somewhat similar (both being handsome young men and all). The Identity of Stephanie One last question lingers: What time-traveler caused the initial transformation of Jesse Cochran into Jesse Katsopolis? What significant life event accompanied the transition between Cochran and Katsopolis? It happened in the first episode of Season 2, which is also the season where Jesse became Jesse Katsopolis. This is unlikely since "Steve," in the context of Full House, is a time-traveling pseudonym that is only adopted afterwards. It must be someone with some stake in Jesse and his past and heritage.
Cousin Steve has no possibe parents that would make him DJ's cousin.
For clarity, we will refer to them, respectively, as Cousin Steve, Steve Urkel, Stavros, and Boyfriend Steve.
(And, of course, Stephanie.)Background It is widely known that Jesse (and by extension, his family) suddenly became Greek when his last name switched from Cochran to Katsopolis.
Now, for the emergence of Stavros, there are two possibilities: Either Stavros is a time-traveling Jesse from the future, or he is an alternate timeline version of Jesse.
If the former, then Jesse's memories of growing up with Stavros must be completely false, creations of a time-ripple.
He didn't attend his aunt Pam's funeral, because why would he time-travel to a funeral when he, instead, can time-travel to visit her when she was alive?
He lives "in Baltimore" because he, unlike his brother, is not a permanent resident in the past, so he must claim residence sufficiently far away to avoid suspicion.Now, obviously, even if Stephanie is a time-traveler, cutting a man's hair could only change his life after the haircut and not his history. By severing his hair, Stephanie was severing Jesse's connection to his original past. Also, since the particulars of time-travel in this universe are not known, we might suppose that, not only are these people capable of traveling bodily through time, they are also capable of advancing or regressing time in the context of their own body, an "age-travel" if you will.It merely signifies to us that, yes, Stephanie, too, is a time-traveler, and that she is the one responsible for altering Cochran family's heritage. If we don't allow for this, there is a complete lack of possibilities within the show.The Twins are Steves Cousin Steve can only really be DJ's first cousin if he is from the future, and the only known first cousins are Nicky and Alex, so I am not going to needlessly invent new cousins.(You know, Occam's Razor and all.)So, if we work from the assumption that Cousin Steve that he is a cousin and that feeling of family overpowers their rational minds.Her mother's only brother is Uncle Jesse, who's not Cousin Steve's father, right?
