Meet A&E’s 60 Days In Star Ricardo aka Carlos

What the casting directors were seeking in volunteers for the “social experiment series” is revealed through an old casting call.

“You’ll spend approximately 60 days trying to simultaneously outwit and gain the trust of those around you,” the listing read. “If you think you’re up for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, send a brief email explaining why you could survive in just about any setting, a little background on you, your career, adventures, and quick wits.” If chosen, potential convicts get a questionnaire and conduct an online interview.

One such cast of the show is Ricardo. Former gang member turned long-distance truck driver, Ricardo AKA Carlos. Ricardo joined a neighborhood gang despite coming from a strict home because he was lured by the group’s family atmosphere and felt it offered him meaning in life.

Ricardo still went back to living the gangster lifestyle after a brief stay in the county jail. He ultimately received a three-year prison term for illegally possessing a firearm. Young Ricardo was made to mature swiftly and learn how to defend himself at all costs when he initially entered the penitentiary.

The elder “lifers,” whose influence made Ricardo realize he never wanted to return to prison, were instrumental in helping him turn his life around. Ten years ago, Ricardo was freed and disconnected.

In the trailer of the show, he speaks with sheriff Reginald B Scandrett. He shares that he believes that he has something to offer as an ex-con and can help change the lives of these kids. Reginald who is cautious welcomes him saying that he hopes that Carlos doesn’t become the problem instead for him to handle.
