An original member of Mark’s real life “entourage,” Nacho first met Mark after moving to Dorchester in the mid-1980s, when Mark picked a fight with him. Years later, the pair became friends and Nacho remains an integral part of Mark’s inner circle. Mark still watches out for Nacho, occasionally hiring him as a driver or additional security on film sets, and will even fly him out to LA for sheer entertainment.
Nacho is a streetwise hustler and extreme eating is his specialty. What started as a bet to eat an enormous bowl of grated cheese grew into an ever-increasing array of challenges, including whole lobsters in the shell, golf divots, sour milk, and pint-sized bottles of hot sauce. Living by the mantra, “Cash is king,” Nacho will eat anything for the right price. But when it comes to Mark’s requests, you can’t put a price on friendship.
