Rey entered into a ten year marriage with the wireless industry at 17 years old. He started out at Circuit City working in the wireless department selling T-mobile and Verizon. He became good friends with the T-mobile rep, and that led to him working with that rep for T-mobile. He even met his wife while working in the wireless industry. He was at work and she was a customer that he helped. So to say that Rey owes the wireless industry a favour, is a given.
Rey’s biggest challenge is his food. His nutrition and his diet. He talks to us about his challenges. But, Rey is mainly on the show because he has made massive changes in his diet by cutting down his red meat intake and his gluten intake. Rey talks about how his childhood influences make it so difficult for him not to gravitate towards a piece of fried chicken.
He also tells us about his sweet tooth. Despite working full time, having a wife and 2 kids, a business and a podcast, Rey admits that his biggest challenge is his food. He talks about how the arrival of a new born changed the schedule he had going.
