His father served in the marines during the Korean War and was awarded the Purple Heart (which is for people who were wounded or killed).

Here is a Kenneth Mullins who died in the war. He was born in 1930 and was a resident of Michigan:

Oddly, I can’t find him on a census, but with this additional information, maybe someone else can. I think though, with a surname like “Mullins”, that his mother is of partial Irish ancestry. Most Mullins in Michigan are of Irish origin.

Could be anglicized. BTW, Bautista’s maternal grandfather was definitely alive at least into Bautista’s adulthood, and his book autobiography has a picture of them together.

So that’s another Kenneth Mullins?

I honestly thought he was mestizo. Interesting tho Greek and Filipino. Perhaps his father had some Spanish ancestry with a surname like Bautista. So perhaps he is of Hispanic mixture after all.

Same. I actually thought that he as 90% Amerindian with a bit of European. Surprised to see that he is 50% Greek and Filipino. Totally wouldn’t expect this look.

He looks Hawaiian or Maori.

Can you please use this photo instead? The one currently up doesn’t get a good zoom on his face.

hmm they are both pretty good.

Does not look part Asian at all:


Looks more Greek, could pass as fully Greek.

andrew August 15, 2014 at 7:05 am

fully Greek no…you have a weird idea of European people

ashash August 15, 2014 at 12:55 pm

I think Check7t is a troll. He is always saying that part Asians look fully European (Greek, Sicilian, Maltese, Cypriot, or something) when they don’t. For example, what he said about Melanie Iglesias, lol.

WTF August 17, 2014 at 5:43 am

he is a troll and a fuckin idiot. he should be banned

Check7t August 17, 2014 at 5:40 pm

What makes you think I’m lying? You think all Southern Europeans are Nordic looking people, you’re the problem.

Typical Greeks:




Would not stick out in Greece, most pictures he looks fully Caucasian.

andrew August 18, 2014 at 5:21 am

He doesnt look Greek, he looks part Asian. Stop

I watched him in 007’s “Spectre”. This guy does not look Greek at all. At most he could be a Turk with more Asian features than average.

phaedra April 25, 2016 at 12:06 am

Andrew, you’re making an embarrasment of yourself. Greeks do not like your masters, the “superiors” in Northern Europe. Quit bowing down to their genitals and build a bridge.

Greeks and Italians look more similar to Semites. You have a pitiful inferior complex, hence the reason why you’re so butthurt that people are telling the truth about your swarthy, hairy race.

Check7t is right on. You are just butthurt.

WTF August 14, 2014 at 4:09 pm

he looks part black too

Mena April 5, 2012 at 5:43 am

He looks mixed..

Midnight August 8, 2011 at 5:18 pm

Hey, who adds names to the list because I want to add carol channing and Joan Bennett. I’d also like to know exactly what Mick Jaggar is lol. Dave is also part something else but I forgot what he said it was back then.

Anonymous June 9, 2011 at 3:13 pm

Greeks & Italians are definitely the 2 most sexiest whites around. (Yes I know it’s nationalities.) I guess I can see the Asian in him a bit.

Tyrone March 2, 2012 at 3:03 am

I Know even im surprised. I just thought he was Hispanic (Mexican). Dang that is weird

AnonymousPerson December 28, 2013 at 5:43 pm

Filipino and white mixes look Mexican most of the time. Or Spaniard and Italian.

ihatemostpeople March 24, 2014 at 5:40 am
