Arbos was born in Cuba to Gizela Andraca and Reinaldo Arbos, but has lived in Naples, Florida, since he was age 10. He graduated from Gulf Coast High School in 2009.
He has had a significant stutter while speaking since he was age six and it became worse after he moved to the United States. However, it disappears when he sings.
Arbos auditioned in Chicago, Illinois, with the song “Bridge over Troubled Water” and surprised the judges because he did not sing with a stutter. Arbos was voted off on the April 11, 2013, episode. He finished in sixth place and was the last male contestant to be eliminated, leaving an all-female top five for the first time in the show’s history.
