The Resume

    (December 22, 2000- )
    Born in Oceanside, California
    Portrays Ricky Bowen in 'High School Musical: The Musical: The Series'
    Had a recurring role as Aidan Peters in 'Stuck in the Middle' (2018)
    Recorded the single 'Lie Lie Lie' (2021)

Why he might be annoying:

    He said about being approached to star in 'HSM:TM:TS,' 'I was super-skeptical -- like, 'What, they're making another High School Musical? I don' know about this.'
    He had to see a therapist to deal with the stress of fame.
    He was rumored to be in a love triangle with co-star Olivia Rodrigo and singer Sabrina Carpenter, with each person providing their take on the relationships in a song: his 'Lie Lie Lie,' Rodrigo's 'Driver's License,' and Carpenter's 'Skin.'

Why he might not be annoying:

    He checked into the hospital thinking he was suffering from food poisoning (January 14, 2021); he was actually suffering septic shock and heart failure and was given a 30% chance of surviving.
    He came out after gushing to an interviewer over how hot Harry Styles is.
    After coming out, he said, 'Even if there are consequences, I would rather deal with consequences and live my truth than live in fear.'
    He said about the rumors linking him to Rodrigo and Carpenter, 'Why don't we focus on these women for who they are? Let's focus on the art that they're making instead of their relationship to a boy.'
