Bobby Show is a native New Yorker. He comes from a big family of which he is the youngest of five. He has four sisters and six nieces and naturally became a protector growing up, striving to keep all of the females in his family safe.

This led to his interest in physical therapy and his desire to use his education to not only help his family, but everyone around him.
