Though we would be lying if we didn't attribute some of the hype to one character in specific who has been blowing up social media platforms all week. It seems the more people who watch the movie, the more people there are asking "who is Bo and where did he come from!?"
If you haven't seen the movie just yet, Bo is a friend and co-worker of the main character, Willowdean, whom both work at a local diner. Played by Luke Benward, Bo is the epitome of boyish charm that gives even Noah Centineo a run for his money, according to fans.

The last time I saw Luke Benward in a movie he was a kid eating a bunch of worms so WHAT IS HE DOING BEING AN ABSOLUTE DREAMBOAT IN THE NEW NETFLIX ROM COM? #Dumplin— Ana-Brit Asplen (@anabritelora) December 15, 2018
Hilariously like Centineo, Benward also has a background in childhood shows. If Benward looks slightly familiar to you, it's probably because he was in a slew of Disney originals as a kid such as Minutemen, Good Luck Charlie and Cloud 9. He was also in How To Eat Fried Worms as a child.

Clearly, it's safe to say that Benward has taken over Centineo's reign as Netflix's monthly man crush. That is at least for now considering To All The Boys I've Loved Before has been confirmed for a sequel. Since Centineo has gotten a slew of upcoming roles after he blew up on Netflix, we can only hope the same happens for Benward!
