Eduardo is the extremely warm, charming and flirty owner of the popular Salsa & Salsa restaurant whose passionate Latin dancing causes women to swoon. He has a larger-than-life personality that is dwarfed only by the size of his waistline. But is Eduardo secretly the No. 1 super-villain on the Anti Villain League’s most wanted list?  Find out on July 3!
