Jason and Jessica's love interest came as an unexpected storyline in season three, but the viewers were all aboard on the Ruby and Jasmine ship soon.

Their striking personalities put up a great show, but they aren't dating in real life.

However, Jason in real life is much different from his character. We've all loved Ruby as the sensitive teenager bubbling with energy, but on the contrary, Jason is a quiet and private person in real life. 

Plus, he has special criteria for his potential partner.

Looks don't cut it for Genao. "Yeah you're cute but are you good for my mental health," he tweeted.

While we wait for updates on his Instagram, it's possible that he might be sneakily hiding a love interest from us.

He admitted that he's not much of an Instagram guy and is doing much more than we can see. He told Bon Appetite,

 It’s this crazy thing where people feel like if you don’t post, you’re not doing much. And I’m like, doing everything and anything possible

Well, I guess we can only wait to hear more from Genao. Moreover, rumors started spiking about him being gay too, bombarding the internet with the question 'is Jason Genao gay?'

No, Jason is not gay in real life. He has a great bond with the other boys on the show, but he is, in fact, straight. His crushes on the hottest women in the industry further prove it. 

With the much-loved series coming to an end, fans are left wanting to see more of Jason. Luckily, you can see him in his new projects' Boo, B*tch,' and 'Ambush.'
