He is famous for his role as Jason Mendoza, the sweet, beautiful idiot in the hit series The Good Place. At the beginning of the show, his character starts off as a Buddhist monk who took the vow of silence. But later, it is revealed that he was just a stupid screwup from Jacksonville.

He is known as Jianyu, an allegedly silent monk, in 'the good place". His character is in love with Janet, an artificial being, which is played by D’Arcy Carden. When asked about his romance on camera and his feelings for Janet in an interview he shared:

Oh, I think his feelings are completely genuine. I’ve thought about it for a good amount and really tried to justify it and I feel that through Janet that Jason is becoming a lot more unselfish since he is starting to think about someone other than himself.

His portrayal of Jason is so highly well received and appreciated that his fans, especially ladies, can't help but obsess over him.

Another fan also shared the same notion of him.

It is quite a surprise that the adorable, young and talented actor has not been linked to anyone in his real life. His dating affair is quite the opposite of his career which is very public.

Given his lack of dating details, there is a possibility of him being gay, but that is not confirmed yet. Well, we'll just have to wait until Manny decides to say something on the matter.
