1. Entered Jyannis December 1, 2002
2. He took the exam for Aoyama Gakuin where Kato Shigeaki studies, but he failed the test and instead passed the test for Horikoshi High School and is now in Waseda University studying Psychology. ( thanks dizzy_starshine)
3. He is called the RainMan because when doing photoshoots outdoors, he usually goes first and when he does, it always rains. It happened in the Hoshi wo Mezashite Jacket Photoshoot. In addition to this, when he was filming Gekidan Engimono it also rained. It also rained when they were filming the final scenes of Shissou even though the weather report said it was going to be clear and so they can't shoot the scene. The same thing also happened on the first day of My Boss My Hero.
4. He has a dog named Tinny which he calls his girlfriend and that he spoils. His nickname for her is Tiny ( thanks tegogo)
5. He idolized Kimura Takuya of SMAP and has posters of him in his house and he wishes to have a duet with him one day.
6. He played soccer for about 10 years and still plays it occasionally when he has the time.
7. He is double jointed.
8. He admires Celine Dion so much that he mimics her sometimes and has all her DVDS and watches her in reference to performing.
9. He always carries a LARGE box of perfume in his bag.
10. He always enters the Jyannis office with a "Yoo-hoo!" - Yamashita Tomohisa
11. He treats Koyama Keiichiro like his Oniisan and often goes out with him for Karaoke
12. He formed a "black hair alliance" with Nishikido Ryo and Ryo will only sing a duet with him if he reverts to his old black hair.
13. He has acrophobia, because he got stuck at a 4th floor of an apartment and somehow he needed to jump off. He landed safely but from then on, he got scared of heights.
14. He admits that he does not have Fashion Sense and asks Ryo to be his Fashion Guru.
15. Tegoshi tends to be clingy. He is clingy to everyone and often gives them hugs before he leaves for the day or in greeting.
16. Concerning dancing, Tegoshi took intense dance lessons with Massu during the hiatus because he was tired of people saying that he can't dance.
17. His favorite food is Yakiniku and would often invite people to join him to go there.
18. He is a text addict and texts everyone "Good Morning" and "Good night" everyday.
19. He speaks to Massu everyday after work/in the evening to check on him. Furthermore, TegoMass makes it a point to go out to do something together at least once a week to keep good friendship.
20. George Miller handpicked him for his role in Happy Feet. When asked why he chose Tegoshi Yuya, he answered "Because he is full of confidence, and it is the very element I want to enforce to the youth."
21. When taking pictures, Tegoshi calls his own shots piccasso like because he takes of the weirdest things and usually they come out blurry.
22. For Valentine's day, Tegoshi attempted to bake everyone in NEWS and the staff some cookies, and they came out tasting great but a little too hard. He describes his cookies as "tough love"
23. Tegoshi's locker is like a girl's because it has a lot of cute stuff in it, perfume, mirror and pictures of NEWS, TegoMassu, Koichi Senpai and it is very neat and colorfully arranged. -Massu
24. Tegoshi wrote the lyrics to Over,(composed by Kato Shigeaki and duet with Shige), and Trashbox. He is a budding lyricist and loves to come over Shige's house to compose songs.
25. Tegoshi also has his license and can drive.

Marikit ♥ Tegoshi
Tesshi is the best singer in NEWS and I agree. The boy is simply super talented. He is also a boy whom I had watched grow up on screen. He was a cute innocent boy with a lot of energy, even naive to the point that where in the SUMMARY Backstage, Tegoshi was doted upon, teased and cared by everyone. Because, back then, Tegoshi was a baby and he was very endearing. I think that That is one of his best qualities. Being endearing like that, is his charm.
Tegoshi was born to be cute. Everything he does is cute ( even his things are) and he was also born to sing and perform onstage. That natural talent is harnessed and I believe he will be one of the biggest singers in Japan. He ust has that kind of aura. His voice is beautiful and smooth and it improves daily. He also works very hard as we saw his improvement ( major improvement in dancing) But what I think is this: Tegoshi needs to find his own identity like Shige did and not imitate others too much or try to be sexy or cool because sexy or cool... well I think does not suit him
Tegoshi is a fanboy whether he admits it or not. He imitates people and usually end up failing when he does. I wish that he just get his own style or go back to the innocent, naive and cute Tegoshi that everyone adores. Tesshi, you are adorable. This is why I LOVE YOU.
