    Looks 100% Kuwaiti or Saudi.

    Wouldn’t bother with his European ethnicities (Dutch, German, Irish – Lool) because he looks nothing like them whatsoever.

    I would stick with Indian and Algerian if I were this guy. He doesn’t look remotely European, let alone German Loool.

    “I’ve got a very mixed race background so, although I’m not actually Asian myself, I’ve got distant touches of Indian in me”


    He’s part Tunisian too.

    My impression was half South Asian and half white when I first saw him, knew he had some South Asian ancestry, something about him looks clearly influenced in that area.
