"Thank you, mom, for making me so handsome."

Tego Leo is a minor character in The Fast and the Furious series and portrayed by Tego Calderón. He is one of Dominic Toretto's crew members and is first portrayed in the original short film, Los Bandoleros.

Los Bandoleros 

Tego was in prison at the start; however, he is freed by Dominic Toretto and Rico Santos, the latter who cuts a hole in the prison fence. He then becomes a member of the team.

Fast & Furious

Tego Leo and Rico Santos are part of Dominic Toretto's crew. They participate in the fuel shipment hijacking driving a modified Chevrolet R3500. After the first two tankers are stolen by Han Seoul-Oh and Cara Mirtha, Tego turns around into reverse gear and pulls up behind the tanker. Rico then grabs a hook and lays it down, connecting it to the tanker. The truck driver tries to get Dominic out of his way and fires two shots from his revolver at Dominic's Buick Grand National. Unfortunately, the truck driver misses and Letty Ortiz loses the hammer used to detach fuel tankers from the truck. Despite this, she sprays liquid nitrogen over the connecter and Dominic crashes into it, disconnecting it and causing a leak. Tego and Rico then head away from the fuel shipment with one stolen tanker. Later, Leo and Santos are at a car show where they each get an equal share of the money earned from the stolen fuel. Tego and Rico then return in a modified Pontiac Trans-Am to help Brian O'Conner and Mia Toretto rescue Dominic from a prison transport.

Fast Five

When Dom and Brian assemble their team, Tego is recruited once again to be a part of the Rio heist alongside Rico Santos. As a pair they do much of the background work for the major heist at the police station, such as setting the explosives in the toilet cubicles and posing as repairmen, after which they hack into the CCTV so that Dom and his crew can see the inner-workings of the station and plan the heist. 

Tego, like the rest of the crew races the police car around the make-shift track but fails, like the others, to be undetected by the cameras. 

During the final chase they drive the garbage truck in which the safe containing Reyes' money with the dummy safe. 

Following receiving their share of the stolen money, both Tego and Rico visit a casino in Monaco where they play roulette. Tego places all of his chips on red, whilst Rico places his on black. It is unknown who wins and who loses, but it is implied that the ball fell on green.

    • 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.
