    He’s probably around 3/8ths Native and the rest European. He looks more European-leaning, although he identifies his background as being just Purepecha.

    I’ve seen pictures of his wife Kim, and I believe that she is likely at least half-European descent. I don’t think her ancestry is fully Vietnamese. I’ve seen at least one claim that her maiden name was “Love”, though I could be wrong.
