ACTually is a game segment that tests the originality and wit of the Eat Bulaga! hosts when it comes to acting out clever uses for normal everyday objects.

The hosts are divided into two teams. After the introduction of the specific object, each team must think of and act out a new function of that object by realizing what other items it might resemble.

Not only does the word ACT in the segment's title refer to the mechanics of the segment, but the letters A, C, and T also stand for acting, creativity, and teamwork, which are necessary skills that each team must have for the game.

ACTually is a reincarnation of the special, one-time 2005 segment, I Object, Your Honor, and its 2015 revival, I Object, #NasaanAngHustisya?. Unlike its predecessors, ACTually was turned into a weekly Saturday segment.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The blue team uses a dustpan as a selfie stick.

The hosts are divided into two teams: the blue team and the yellow team.

The blue team is led by Baste. Members of the blue team are Wally Bayola, Anjo Yllana, Pia Guanio, Allan K, and Jose Manalo. The yellow team of is led by Ryzza Mae Dizon. Members of the yellow team are Luane Dy, Ryan Agoncillo, Ruby Rodriguez, Paolo Ballesteros, Alden Richards, and Maine Mendoza. From time to time, the members of each team are told to switch sides in case there is not enough members for one team.

The game has a total of three rounds. In each round, both teams are given one specific object. Each group will take turns to think of and to act out a clever use for that object by realizing what other objects it might resemble. For instance, a closed umbrella roughly resembles a sword or a walking cane. The team must then act out its new function.

The yellow team uses a rubber tire as an engagement ring for their scene.

In the first and second rounds, each team must perform three scenes for each of their clever ideas. In the third round, each team must perform five scenes. Each scene has a time limit of twenty seconds. In the end of the scene, the team members must state the word "Actually" followed by the clever use of the item.

At the end of each round, the judges decide which team had the cleverest and funniest ideas. Tito Sotto and Jimmy Santos along with thirty-nine members of the audience are the judges of the game, raising a placard labeled blue or yellow. Whichever team gets the most votes wins the round.

In the first and second rounds, the winning team is awarded 20 points while the losing team is awarded 10 points. In the third round, the winning team is awarded 60 points while the losing team is awarded 30 points. Therefore, if one team loses the first two rounds, then that team still has a chance to win the game.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mathematically, winning the third round wins the game, no matter what the results are in the first two. A team can win the first two rounds and lead 40–20, but the last round gives a 30-point advantage for the winner.
  • Out of the 14 total episodes of ACTually, Blue and Yellow teams split the results with 7 wins a piece. However, Yellow team earned more points, 1,110–990, partly due to the AlDub influence on fans.
  • Individually, 5 hosts got 7 wins. Alden, Baste, Maine, Paolo and Ryzza had the most wins in the segment, but Alden did it in only 10 episodes. He also has the fewest losses among regular players with 3, and the highest winning percentage at 70%. On the other hand, Allan and Pia had the most losses with 8, and the lowest winning percentage among regulars with 38%.
  • Jose portrays his usual character in games of being a complainer (dubbed as "Boy Protesta") who frequently appeals to the judges and hosts because he thinks his team is always cheated by the other team. He also rallies that his team's jokes were better and original and only loses because of the big number of Maine and Alden's fans.
  • Aside from Baste and Ryzza who were leaders of their teams, three hosts never went to the opposing side. Anjo and Jose stayed in the Blue team for all their 13 episodes, while Maine (who admits her favorite color is yellow) is on the Yellow team in all her 12 appearances.
  • Entering the third round of the 27 January 2018 episode, the score was 40–20 in favor of the Yellow team. When the last round votes were revealed, Yellow team won in the slimmest of margins, 20–19, and won the game. There was no explanation why there were only 39 votes since there should be a total of 40 (39 audience members and Jimmy). If the third round result went in favor of Blue team, they could have stolen the game.
  • On the 3 February 2020 episode, a draw of lots was performed for choosing Baste and Ryzza's teammates on Blue and Yellow teams. Interestingly, the first four picks went to their same previous teams. Before this episode, players' teams were pre-determined. The draw of lots only lasted for two editions, and returned to pre-determined lineups.
  • On the 10 March 2018 episode, a blindside switch was done to even out the number of players per team (Blue has 5 and Yellow has 7). Blue team received 3 players in exchange of their own 2. As result, Ruby and Luane, who were on the Yellow team for all their 7 appearances each, both went to the Blue team for their first time. Tito Sotto jokingly commented on the Blue transferees as "patapon" (going to waste) because Yellow team (on paper) had the better side in the trade, and Jose expected it would happen.
  • The Dabarkads Awards 2018 ceremony was done in the middle of the 7 April 2018 episode.
  • The 24 February 2018 and 17 March 2018 episodes of ACTually were replayed in full on Saturday, 9 May 2020 and Thursday, 4 June 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic that resulted in the suspension of all live shows, Eat Bulaga! opted to replay throwback videos of some of its most iconic segments from way back in the past.
