Ricardo Hurtado From 'Malibu Rescue' Is Every Preteen's New Crush

By

In Hollywood, nothing screams summer quite like lifeguards. Two years after Zac Efron and The Rock’s failed Baywatch reboot hit theaters, Netflix is attempting to revamp the trope with its latest film, Malibu Rescue.

The movie and upcoming TV series (which drops on June 3 and stars the same group of actors) follows teenager Tyler, played by Ricardo Hurtado, as he trains for an elite junior lifeguard program. 

Though fans might recognize Ricardo from his role as Freddy on Nickelodeon’s School of Rock, this new gig — which requires him to be shirtless most of the time — will no doubt catapult him into heartthrob territory. Here’s what you need to know about the 19-year-old before he reaches superstardom.

Ricardo doesn’t currently have a girlfriend.
