    Handsome imo. I always thought his ancestry came from the north or was part german or British isles. I was right on the latter.

  3. Blackbuddafly says:

    He has an “italian shape to his face” what is this cope here? I knew this guy wasn’t fully Italian almost right away. Italians usually have gracile features not robust. Guys who look like him in Italy are very rare. Italy is not THAT diverse as claimed. The majority of Italians are mediterranean.

    Don’t get confused by Italy’s celebrities. Italy uses similar tactics as Latin American nations. The whitest looking individuals are often chose as fashion models and soap stars, but don’t be fooled more Italians look like Ariana Grande and her brother type than they do this guy. I WISH most of them looked like him, but they don’t. They’re usually short, small framed and gracile.

      Adding to that, people who look like him are more likely to be found up in Northern Italy aka the not so mediterranean area as he can easily fit in Germany, France or the British Isles more than he could most of Italy.

      Ariana Grande looks Mexican as you said, her HALF-brother is more passable as Italian. About “Don’t get confused by Italy’s celebrities. Italy uses similar tactics as Latin American nations. The whitest looking individuals are often chose as fashion models and soap stars”, Europe is NOT South America, that’s complete bulls**t. Btw David Giuntoli looks like: http://ethnicelebs.com/roberto-bolle
