    hmm he has dark brown hair and blue eyes

    and a face which is very common in germany and europe

    but those curly hair look very strange, are they real ?

    his name hasselhoff sounds german, but the ending HOFF descended from russia or eastern european

    about 40 percent of germans have an eastern european or especially polish background
