He's young, handsome, has a career in medicine and his surname means both rich and delicious in Spanish.
Is there anything Manuel Rico doesn't have going for him?

"I'd rather remain anonymous," he told Spanish daily ABC.
"The modelling I did was a great experience, but I don’t want to have any more to do with it now."
