Scott Baio has joined the ranks of well-known Hollywood figures who are moving away from California. The actor has explained his motives for departing.
For more information on why the actor is leaving the state, he has called home for so many years, continue reading. Chachi Arcola in the television sitcom Happy Days may have been Scott Baio’s most illustrious performance.
The actor, who has lived in the Golden State for many years, announced his move there via Twitter.
The actor highlighted the situation of Los Angeles’s expanding homeless population as justification for his choice. Although the actor has lived in Los Angeles for the past 45 years, it appears that he has had enough of the region.
After 45 years, he wrote on Twitter, “After 45 years, I’m making my way to finally ‘exit stage right’ from California. The most recent survey conducted by the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority found approximately 69,000 people experiencing homelessness in L.A. County and 41,000 in the city in 2022.’”
Many people voiced their opinions over Baio’s choice to go. Some others recognized the actor’s drive. Scott, good for you,” a Twitter user said. You’ll be a lot happier, as well as your family. Additionally, you can return if CA changes in the future.
Another Twitter user wrote, “Wonderful sir. Hope you find a place where yall can be happy and comfortable. Have a little space left in Texas if you want it. We would love to have you here.”
While a second speaker added, repeating Baio’s views, “Congrats. If and when my son leaves we are out of here too. Been here since 1970 it is not the same beautiful state it once was.”
Others were not as supportive. “Considering you’ve never done anything to help out in the situation after getting wealthy off of us, we will be glad to see you go,” a Twitter user replied in anger. Another person added their experience, “Happy Californian here, especially knowing you are leaving!!”
Others mocked the actor, with one commenter asking, “With your lack of work over the last 20+ years – are you one of the homeless?”
“You exited from relevancy about 30 years ago, who cares?” another person added.
“It’ll be easy to pack up your tent and shopping cart,” another user unhappy with his tweet wrote. “Cause you’ve been out of a career for 40 years too!”
The 62-year-old actor has put his Woodland Hills home up for sale, showing that he means business. The house is worth $3,85,000,000. This large home has five bedrooms, four and a half baths, a home theater, and 6,300 square feet of space. The house cost $1.85 million to buy in 2010.
Scott Baio is merely adding his name to the lengthy list of Hollywood celebrities who have relocated from California to other states. Famous people with recent moves from California include Mark Wahlberg, Joe Rogan, and Matthew McConaughey.
McConaughey declared his plan to return to Texas, where he was born, in December 2020. His desire for his children to share his ‘values’ and grow up around his family was the main driver behind his decision to relocate.
In August 2020, Joe Rogan used a comparable strategy. He relocated his family due to the “insane” traffic in Los Angeles and the exorbitant cost of living there. The well-known podcaster also relocated to Texas. Mark Wahlberg relocated to Ohio after selling his Beverly Hills property for $30 million in April 2021. The actor has family in the region and owns a Chevrolet business there, which may have influenced his choice.
