Bobby Rydell

At 22, Bobby Rydell was a sandy-haired, skinny guy with a huge hunk of personality and TALENT! At 22 he was also on his way to becoming a millionaire. This exceptional performer, born in Philadelphia, Pa., still lives there. "Philadelphia is home to me," Bobby said. "I don't want to live anywhere else. It is here where my family and friends live." Bobby and his family outgrew their small house and moved into a bigger one. "We were bursting at the seams," he said. "I always wanted to give my Mom and Dad a beautiful house; it's been my life's ambition." Other ambitions on Bobby's agenda were to become a finer actor and all around showman. That he is as of now.
