She has very dark eyes for a european

those europeans who have dark brown eyes can be found in italy or spain and not so much in those mentioned countries where she had her descent

Her eyes color is brown. I’ve seen and I know a lot of Swedes, Germans, and English with brown eyes. You think we caucasians are perfect. Blue eyes and blond hair is unusual even in Europe.

Hi Follers, I cant find the connection between Bridgit and the paternal Grandparents. Can you tell me where that is?

Yeah, if you go to peoplefinders, you’ll see Bridgit and her parents, Sandra Ford Mendler and Edward Charles Mendler III, are the only Mendlers listed in Mill Valley (some websites incorrectly call her parents Harry Mendler and Leah, but I can find no evidence that such people exist).

I guess I should have put in that her mother’s name was “Ford”, but it didn’t seem to tell me much.

Edward Charles Mendler, the first, the second, and III, were / are the only people with such names to ever live in the U.S., as far as I can tell. So clearly her dad, Edward Charles Mendler III, was the son of Edward Charles Mendler, Jr.

no luck finding her on peoplefinders. what search term did you use?

Nikki April 28, 2014 at 6:57 pm

you think you know everything about ethnicities @follers

andrew March 10, 2013 at 6:27 pm

I admit I don’t know her, a huge part of “celebs” in the site are completely unknown to an European audience or ppl from anywhere out of US

nnnnn March 13, 2013 at 1:48 am

Not only USA.
Do you know, who is Gundis Zambo?
Schould be a “celebrity”, too

andrew May 27, 2013 at 4:14 pm

I found her profile somewhere in the site, I dont think she’s so famous

andrew May 27, 2013 at 4:12 pm

that’s an unusual name for a German actress. Actually I googled her name coz I havent a clue. Wiki says “with austrian and hungarian origin”..interesting

neiltennant August 4, 2015 at 5:13 am

I’m from germany and i ask myself why you mention GUNDIS ZAMBO ?

she is not a real celeb

she had a third class show when i was 5years old :-)) haha

and later ZAMBO had another show on a channel 33
not really famous

but how it come you mentioned her?

GUNDIS ZAMBO has very dark eyes i doubt that she is only of auistrian and hungarian
