Who are 'The Bachelorette' star Tino Franco's parents?

Tino Franco was born to Joe and Sandi Franco on February 14, 1994. Tino's parents appear to be very private people as there isn't much information available about the couple on the internet. While Joe's profession remains unknown, Sandi works as area manager at First American Home Warranty

Tino might be into construction industry by day, but he's very passionate about volunteering with Camp Ronald McDonald. He enjoys working with the families and children diagnosed with cancer. In an Instagram post, Tino revealed how his brother, Mateo, was diagnosed with leukemia as a child and the role that Camp Ronald McDonald played in helping him get better. He wrote, "Feels like a couple lifetimes ago but here we are over a decade later. 14 years ago this tall, brilliant legend was diagnosed with leukemia. While the doctors at Kaiser did an incredible job treating the cancerous cells in his blood, the volunteers and donors of camp treated 3 kids who felt lost in the world and brought them home 🏠 . That’s why camp is forever branded in my heart (and leg) and why all our donations, large or small, mean the world to me and so many other people. Thank you all so much who have donated up to this halfway point and thank you in advance to all those donations yet to come ❤️🌎 the campaign link is in the bio. Love you all. Alright take care - Tino." 


Family appears to be very important for Tino. In his bio, he revealed how family is everything for him. When Rachel asked Tino about his family and how they would feel about her, he simply said that they would have to accept her because he loved her. In the preview clip we see Tino's father, Joe grilling Rachel. He questions if she's the right person for his son. Tino can be heard saying to his family, "When you know, you know," about his relationship with Rachel. But his father isn;t entirely convinced and replies saying Rachel is giving in a "fairy tale", and saying all the right things, but he also wants to make sure she is the right person. "We’re going to have to have a talk. You’re living like a fairy tale right now. I mean, you’re saying all the right things, but I want to see him fall for the right person," he says to Rachel. 

Rachel can later be seen crying. She says, "I don’t know how I made it out of that house alive. I almost cried. I care about him so much, so to hear that, I feel like my heart is breaking.” The preview clip left an unpleasant taste in fans' mouth, who labeled Tino's family as 'toxic'. A fan tweeted, "Tino and his whole family are TOXIC #TheBachelorette." "Tino is a red flag. the family seems like a redflag, too. run for any signs of control! @pilot__rachel #bachelorette #TheBachelorette," wrote a fan. Another fan commented, "Tino's father in the preview seems like a real prize. #TheBachelorette." "Tino’s dad is acting like a real baby back b**** #TheBachelorette," pointed out a fan.
