My first inclination would be to say Hispanic, although they usually have straight hair, so maybe a bit of SSA as well? He has very "Caucasian" features, though, so maybe just basically an American with a bit of admix?

I would have guessed (mixed-race) hispanic too, but he is not.

Since no one seems to be playing, I will reveal. This man is Norwegian.

Perhaps some degree of siberian-ancestry is what makes him look sort of mestizo, idk if he is part Sammi.

Siberian ancestry....would the Icelandic singer Björk be a similar case?

I'd say so, but Norwegians have more of this ancestry: https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-07483-5

This man has definitely some considerable Non-European admixture. He is never ever fully Norwegian. People are not aware of the fact that Scandinavian countries like all European countries have lots of people with mixed ancestries.

Nah, Siberian admixture doesn't make European skin so dark and hair so curly. Keep in mind that Siberians have bone straight hair like Native Americans. It's more likely that this man has some other non-European admixture too. I learned to trust my eyes and common sense more than what people claim. I debated English people who swore that Cliff Richard is fully English while I suspected that he has some South Asian admixture. Recently it came out that Cliff Richard had an Indian grandmother, etc. There are some Europeans who hide there non-European ancestry even when it's small.

Not sure. Wikipedia says he is from Trysil, which is a bit far south from the Sami heartland, but you never know. Another possible explanation is Forest Finn (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forest_Finns)-ancestry, which is not uncommon in the inland areas of Eastern Norway bordering to Sweden. The Forest Finns were migrants originally coming from Eastern Finland (Savonia), and they probably carried more Siberian ancestry and darker phenotypes than native Norwegians.
