Rico Santos is a street racer from the Dominican Republic and the friend of Tego Leo. A supporting character in The Fast and the Furious franchise, Rico aligned himself with the likes of Dominic Toretto and Letty Ortiz in a Robbin Hood-esque crew to steal oil from rich corporations in order to turn a profit. When Dominic is framed by Hernan Reyes for the death of four DEA agents, Rico aids the crew in the effort to steal $100 million to start new lives. Rico later helped in the rescue of Brian Marcos, the son of Elena Neves and Dominic, when he was kidnapped by cyberterrorist, Cipher.

Biography

Los Bandoleros

Fast & Furious

Fast Five

When Dominic and Brian O'Conner assemble their team for the Rio heist Dom calls upon Tego and Rico to join having previously worked with them hijacking oil tankers. Rico and Tego are part of all of the major operations in the heist - in particular they set explosives in the piping system in the police station to cause an explosion allowing them to enter the police station as repairmen and hack into the CCTV. 

During the chase they drive the garbage truck that switches the two safes. They take their equal share of the money to a casino in Monaco where they play Roulette; Tego places all his chips on red whilst Rico places all of his on black, it is unknown who wins or loses.

Fast & Furious 6

Rico and Tego are briefly mentioned during the crew's first meeting when Brian asks about them, to which Han replies that they were last seen hitting up the casinos of Monte Carlo.

    • Before the clip ends it shows the ball bouncing of green and then a clip of them looking pissed and annoyed. Well it means the ball landed...
    • Makes sense.
