George Lopez is an American comedian, actor, and television personality. He was the host of the show Lopez Tonight from 2009 to 2011.

His father, Anatasio Lopez, was a Mexican emigrant, from Nayarit. His mother, Frieda, was born in Los Angeles, of Mexican descent. George has a daughter, actress Mayan Lopez, with his former wife Ann Serrano.

George’s paternal grandparents were named Francisco Lopez and Josefa.

George’s maternal grandfather was John Hernandez (the son of Pedro Hernandez and Raphaela Vargas). John was born in California, to parents from Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico.

George’s maternal grandmother was Benita N. Torres (the daughter of Alfonso Torres and Manulea Mares). Benita was born in California. Manuela was born in Santiago Apostol, Silao, Guanajuato, Mexico, the daughter of Lucio Mares and Maria Guadalupe Héras. George’s step-grandfather was named Refugio Gutierrez.

A DNA test whose results were displayed on the show Lopez Tonight (2009) stated that George’s genetic ancestry is:

*55% European
*32% Native American
*9% East Asian
*4% Sub-Saharan African

The exact accuracy of the DNA tests on Lopez Tonight has been questioned by genealogist Megan Smolenyak Smolenyak.

    The DNA test he took was probably very inaccurate. If he took a new test with something like 23andme now that has a larger database, his results would probably be more accurate to what he actually is. I bet he’s 70% or more Native. That test on his show is not accurate. It also told Kim Kardashian she’s 100% Armenian when her mother is white….Jessica Alba also did the test on his show and it showed her to be a tiny amount of native. Years later she got her test redone on Finding your Roots and she’s 22% Native American.

    LOL, yeah right Lopez is 55 percent European LOLOL, He looks more native and I bet he lied and its more like 85 percent .
    Im hispanic and did that test and I came up with Irish, Greek, Balkan Spanish and Portugal 70 percent. I only got 9 percent native the rest North Africa and Middle East plus Jewish, Ashkenazi.

    On the fake George Lopez show The Kardashians were 100% Armenian even though their mother is 0% Armenian.
    George looks 90% Mexican indigenous. I believe he has more Black than that and definitely less Caucasian.

    As usual people are sh*tting themselves when a majority european mixed or otherwise has an appearance that doesn’t fit within their fancified imagining of what Europeans are supposed to look like.
    George Lopez’s full beard, thick eyelids, and outward tilting eyes(Evidence of aviator shaped eye sockets) are an indication of his European ancestry.
    There is absolutely 0 incentive for Lopez to exaggerate his European side, on the contrary, with his comedic style he would want to downplay any whiteness.(Remember he called Carlos Mencia a fake Mexican because he was white/German.)

      Um no I’m sorry I’m 48% meso American and 41% European with the rest of my blood being middle eastern and I can tell you right now George Lopez results either don’t transcend to his appearance or are straight wrong. I look far whiter than him and I’m supposedly less white, any person I know that’s near my ethnic percentages or more European while still having meso American looks whiter too. Truth is Lopez looks at least 65-75 percent meso American there is no getting around it.

      • Jack Tripp says:

        exactly he is MORE INDIO! He lied. I am so white and so is my dad who everyone thought was German but is Hispanic. He has more European than me or my mom. And she is white too from Mexico, only 3 percent native is what she came up which shocked her.

    • Jack Tripp says:

      I don’t believe him at all. He looks what we call INDIO! My best friend looks like him and did his DNA and 88 percent native. Lopez is full of it. His skin color is NOT EUROPEAN. Or are you like the morons that claim the GREEKS were blacks!

    • Jack Tripp says:

      Oh bull—-! He is an Indian. There’s nothing European about him moron
