IDK. A lot of Hungarians and Romanians look like gypsies. No offense.

bablah January 1, 2016 at 6:25 am

Maybe the ones looking like gypsies are indeed gypsies?

Wow white people can look so incredibly stunning

cwm85 August 4, 2015 at 4:34 pm

She’s pretty and mostly Latin. Spanish and Romanian. Hungarian too. Nice

She’s beautiful though, but I think Chris Hemsworth is ugly.

M May 31, 2015 at 12:57 am

You must be stupid or blind, maybe both. Chris is one of the most handsome men I have ever seen. I’d like to see what you look like, probably obese, hideous, and short. Jealous.

Devotion November 7, 2015 at 9:42 pm

Chris is very average looking. Not everyone is into blonde hair and blue eyes (especially on men). Please, get a f—ng grip.

hesh123 November 8, 2015 at 3:25 am

If chris is average looking, then what the hell is above average?

andrew November 8, 2015 at 5:51 am

Translation: not Assyrian/Lebanese/Turkish looking=average.

Check7t March 21, 2014 at 6:08 am

She does look exotic, something about her looks weird.

It’s probably cause she has light features with a darker skin tone.

Romanian girls are very beautiful.

Check7t March 21, 2014 at 6:02 am

She’s like 8 years older than her husband.

ihatemostpeople February 24, 2014 at 6:00 am

She looks Mestiza to me. I thought she was Mexican….

Check7t February 25, 2014 at 11:15 pm

No fool, another bullshit claim by you.

ihatemostpeople February 26, 2014 at 2:47 am

LMFAO who the fuck do you think you are? Talking shit on the internet like an idiot. Piss off bitch.

Europa May 21, 2014 at 2:14 pm

You never seem to stop do you?

Gurrl February 5, 2014 at 2:33 am

I knew she had something other than just Spanish.

scott February 5, 2014 at 6:25 am

what makes you think that?

andrew February 5, 2014 at 8:15 am


Gurrl February 5, 2014 at 10:06 am

That is not entirely incorrect :] but I consider myself pretty good at guessing anyway. Not to say that there are some Spaniards who do not have a stereotypical Mediterranean appearance, but I just suspected Elsa probably had some other European mix also

lelo4 August 8, 2016 at 3:03 pm

Most Spaniards don’t have a ‘stereotypical Mediterranean appearance’, thats the Italians. Spaniards are very western/basque-like.

andrew August 8, 2016 at 3:32 pm

That is what most prominent anthropologists say: Spain as the cradle of “Mediterranen race”. Spain as a whole has more Mediterranean types than Italy by far. Consider Spain’s latitude and climate that is way hotter than Italy, where most people live in the North, and have more Central European influence. On the other hand Basques are the lightest of all Iberians.

andrew August 8, 2016 at 3:34 pm

I meant the contrary of what most prominent anthropologists say.

MadBadDog August 10, 2016 at 3:41 pm

Are you Andrew, I mean, the real Andrew that normally posts in this site?

Andrew, we are atlanto – med, and our genetics are a mix of europeans, i see a lot of dna results of spaniards and more or less we are iberian península ( celtic), the most who is Brown hair and dark eyes , british island, ireland, west europe ( french or germany) Escandinavia ,and italy greece, sometimes india ( gipsies?, the mayority of us can pass in over Europe , a lot of us have very british or German look (when we expelled the moors, we repopulated spain with people from the north,), but the mayority have the Celtic look, not moor, examples:

– Jorge Cadaval and his brother https://www.google.es/search?q=los+morancos&biw=1366&bih=622&source=lnms&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiXh43uw7TOAhXBOxQKHYWzDEIQ_AUIBygA&dpr=1#q=jorge+cadaval

– Alberto López López López http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=alberto+lopez&FORM=HDRSC2

– Amaia Salamanca and very beautiful, https://www.google.es/search?q=amaia+salamanca&biw=1366&bih=622&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwj5wcX4xrTOAhUPkRQKHZlYDnMQ_AUIBigB.

-Álvaro Cervantes, Jan cornet is catalán, marc clotet, catalán, Verónica Forque looks like Julianne Moore, Cristina Castaño another red haired, Vanesa Romero another blondie, Ana Simon, Pilar Rubio, Lourdes Maldonado, Maria Casado, Carlos Latre, Carolina Cerezuela, Carolina Ferre another beautiful, Magie Civantos, Mireia Belmonte looks German , Esther Cañadas, super model, Oriol Elcacho, Vanessa Lorenzo looks like Diane Kruger,Joan Predola……well, i could we all day…

andrew August 9, 2016 at 3:51 pm

“Atlanto-Med”, ok since you seem to be expert in anthropology you will know that “Mediterranean race” is also called “Ibero-Insular” because it’s very common in Iberia and Med islands like Sardinia. There are surely lighter types in Iberia, expecially Basque Country, Aragón and Catalunya but the vast majority of Iberians are Mediterraneans and very Southern European looking, far from this “Celtic” myth you guys made popular in internet forums.

lelo4 August 9, 2016 at 6:46 pm

Iberians are lighter than Italians, deal with it. The only Italians similar to Iberians are the Northern ones. Southern Italians are genetically equidistant between Iberians/North Italians and Lebanese/Levantines and are similar to Jews and Aegean Islanders.

andrew August 10, 2016 at 4:11 am

Well, I already read this countless times in your repetitive posts when I was logged to that site. Now that it’s closed are you gonna making this site a new playground for your agenda? In real life Iberians, Southern Italians and Greeks have similar pigmentation and North Italians don’t look like Iberians at all, it’s just common sense. Also since you labeled Jack Gilinsky as Moroccan-looking you lost any credibility.
