The Bay Area has seen its fair share of famous actors, athletes and chefs. But did you know that the South Bay is home to Jason Baca, who’s been on more romance novel covers than Fabio himself?
Baca has graced the cover of 630 romance novels and after 11 years, it’s time for him to pass the throne onto other models out there.
“I want to be able to live a normal life and be like ‘hey tonight I’m going to go have some pasta,’ enjoy things a little bit with my family,” Baca said.
The cover model who resides in Saratoga already has a day job at the Santa Clara County Housing Authority.
He’s been on the cover of 630 romance novels (more than Fabio). But now, the Bay Area’s Jason Baca is retiring from book cover modeling. He says it’s time to move on, and looks forward to eating more pasta. Recognize him? Story at 11 on @nbcbayareapic.twitter.com/uHRpLT37sw
