John belongs to a fifth generation of San Antonio natives, of part Mexican descent. John had a tough childhood and growing up on the whole, as when he was 13 years old, his father was fired, and John and his sisters were forced to join a caravan of farm workers and travel to Traverse City, Michigan to work on a farm as cherry harvesters. Soon enough his parents came to the same farm to work also, and John received wise words from his father, which he would never forget, “Juanito, do you want to do this for the rest of your life? Or, do you want to get a college education?”. He attended Bracken ridge High School in San Antonio, and while there he became a part of the federal anti-poverty program, Upward Bound, the main goal of which was to prepare poor inner-cities children for college. After high school, John enrolled at St Mary`s University in his hometown, from which he graduated with a bachelor`s degree in Speech Communication.

Since 2008, he has been in position as the host of the hidden camera television program “What Would You Do”, which has increased his net worth by a large margin.
