He doesn’t even look 5% Greek, let alone 100%.

Was he adopted from a Gulf Arab family?

Looks Saudi Arabian. But many Greeks tend to look like this (if not as unattractive as him).

andrew November 29, 2015 at 12:10 pm

maybe in your Semite dreams, there’s a huge gap in physical appareance between Greeks and Saudis.

He’s probably a Cypriot or a Greek Islander like most ‘greek’ americans, they are not ethnic Greeks. 90% of Greek population live in the Mainland, and they don’t look much different from Albanians and South Slavs.

Typical greek/arab, they are more middle-eastern than european

andrew September 13, 2015 at 2:40 pm

he’s not “typical” and you know it, because you’re a troll.

Greeks aren’t arabs lol

Peanut October 16, 2014 at 9:34 pm

he’s very arab looking but many greeks have “arab” features, genetically they ARE 1/3 middle eastern, greek islanders and cypriots even more. and he’s obviously going full-ethnic with with the tan, hair and beard.

He’s an Iranid + Indid mix — obviously not fully Greek.

If he was an East Med with some minor Iranid in his physiognomy then I could believe he’s Greek (at those types do exist in Greece) — however he’s obviously as Greek/European as the rest of Gypsies with European surnames.

ashash October 15, 2014 at 9:39 pm

He’s not Arab. Get over it.

Check7t July 9, 2014 at 11:13 pm

shobohunter June 2, 2014 at 2:20 pm

WTF June 2, 2014 at 2:40 pm

um you need to learn how to read!!! i never said the reason he looks weird is because he looks indian/arab! i just said he is weird looking as a person!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i never once mentioned that he is ugly because of his “race”. so you need to stfu and stop slandering me. every race has some weird and fugly people. race has shit to do with a person’s aesthetics.
