Remember Fabio, the male model, who used to grace the cover of millions of romance novels? In the early 1990’s, Fabio rose to great popularity as a male model and was well known for his long blonde locks and large physique.
Fabio was born on March 15, 1959, in Milan, Italy. His father always wanted Fabio to take over the family business, but became quite distressed to learn that Fabio wanted to be a male model. Following a friend’s advice, he packed moved to the United States where he became a model for GAP ads and many sportswear designers.

Unfortunately for the 6’3 macho man, he will probably be most remembered for being hit in the face by a 15 lb goose, while riding a roller coaster during a publicity appearance.

What happened to: Fabio

Fabio has since moved on from that near fatal experience (sadly the goose did not survive) and now runs his own film production company specializing in animation.
Fabio also made cameo appearances in the movies, Dude, Where’s My Car, Zoolander and Bubble Boy. None of those movies were blockbusters. (Surprise!)

Fabio tries to lead a private lifeand is an avid collector of motorcycles, having over 125 motorcycles in his collection.

Contrary to popular misconceptions of male models, he is not gay.

He was at one point dating Larrisa from Average Joe Hawaii
