In 2007 the One Nation leader took part in a DNA test organised by Queensland's Sunday Mail in which a mouth swab of her genetic material found that her "genetic makeup is drawn from a rich multicultural background, with 9 per cent originating in the Middle East, 32 per cent from Italy, Greece or Turkey and 59 per cent from northern Europe."
It's a fact that has given her detractors plenty of glee to re-report over the years - especially when she pronounces her anti- mosque and halal-certification policies that seem to predominantly target Muslims and migrants of Middle Eastern origin.
At the time, Hanson remarked that "All I can think of is that probably down the track it eventuated from some war."
"But I'm not going to knock it. It has made me who I am."
She seems to have changed her tune since then though. Watch the video above to see her reaction when she and the other participants of Pauline Hanson: Please Explain! are asked about their origins and where they are from.
