That's My Tambay is a talent search for indigent youth and unemployed young male adults from different barangays across the country. The segment premiered on 31 October 2013 and concluded on 18 January 2014. It aired as a subsegment of Juan for All, All for Juan: Bayanihan of d' Pipol

The segment aims to provide deserving people a chance to hone their talents and skills with free training and job employment opportunities at the end of the competition.[1] It was originally conceived as a humorous response to noontime rival It's Showtime's segment for tomboys and trans men titled That's My Tomboy, which in turn is a play on the iconic Eat Bulaga! segment That's My Boy.[2]

Emil Paden, the 28-year-old tambay from Caloocan City, was proclaimed as the grand winner of the competition.[3] He and the other Top 6 finalists were immediately offered jobs before the announcement of the winner.

Overview

Auditions

The contest was open to men between 18 and 30 years old who have no permanent job or are currently unemployed. The contestants must share their resumes which would be used as part of the question-and-answer portion in the actual competition. Auditions were held at the Broadway Centrum.

Daily rounds

The daily rounds were held from Mondays to Thursdays at the barangay venue of the day of Juan for All, All for Juan: Bayanihan of d' Pipol. They were primarily hosted by Jose Manalo, Paolo Ballesteros, and Valerie Weigmann.

Three contestants competed each day. In the question-and-answer portion, studio hosts acted as a panel of interviewers who reviewed and questioned the resume of each contestant. The contestants then showcased their skills and abilities in the talent portion.

Daily winners received ₱20,000 and advanced to the weekly finals. Eliminated contestants took home a consolation prize of ₱5,000.

Weekly finals

That's My Tambay barangay hosts, studio judges, and contestants

The daily winners competed against each other in the weekly finals, which were held on Fridays. The contestants were reinterviewed about their past jobs and experiences as well as the reason of their current unemployment. They then showcased their level-up performances in the talent portion.

Weekly winners received ₱30,000, an Xtreme Magic Sing videoke machine, and a brand-new Suzuki motorcycle. They also advanced to the prejudging rounds of the competition.

Wildcard rounds

The wildcard rounds occurred from 13 to 15 January 2014. Several contestants who were eliminated in the previous rounds earned the opportunity to compete in the segment once again by showcasing their refined performances and improved interview skills. The three wildcard winners advanced to the next round of the competition, joining the ten other finalists.

Prejudging rounds

Hosted by Ryan Agoncillo, Julia Clarete, and Pauleen Luna, the prejudging rounds took place at the Broadway Centrum from 16 to 17 January 2014. The 13 finalists were divided into two separate batches: the first six finalists competed on the first day, while the remaining seven performed the next day.

The prejudging rounds were similarly formatted with talent and interview portions. During the live airing of Eat Bulaga!, contestants presented their level-up skills and abilities in the talent portion. After the telecast, they underwent an off-screen interview portion with the judges.

The panel of judges included actress Gladys Reyes, Eat Bulaga! host Allan K, and Association of Former Franchisers, Inc. (AFFI) former director Paul Andrew Tan. No decision was immediately announced at the end of the round. Announcement of the results was made on Saturday to determine the Top 6 finalists who would participate in the grand finals.

Grand finals

Top 13 grand finalists

The grand finals occurred at the Broadway Centrum on Saturday, 18 January 2014. A total of 13 finalists appeared in the grand finals of the competition.

The panel of judges included champion entrepreneur Paulo Tibig, AFFI member Richard Uy, and media personality Kris Aquino. The criteria of judging were as follows:

  • 30% – Personality and interpersonal skills
  • 30% – Wit
  • 40% – Talent

For the final time, the 13 grand finalists took their introductory walk during the opening presentation of the segment.

Prejudging round results (Top 6)

After their introductory walk, the finalists were immediately narrowed down into the Top 6 based on the results of the prejudging round. The Top 6 finalists were Emil Paden, Bryan Cruz, Michael Fortes, Arron Cadawas, TJ Francisco, and Kenneth Sawyer.

Final results

Top 6 grand finalists

The Top 6 finalists underwent final talent and interview portions. The contestants presented their ultimate level-up skills and abilities in the talent portion. The judges then tested their communication skills by interviewing the finalists with a job-related question. Just like in a real job interview, the judges could also ask follow-up questions if needed.

Emil Paden, the 28-year-old tambay from Caloocan City, was proclaimed as the grand winner at the end of the competition. He received a Suzuki motorcycle, Xtreme Magic Sing videoke machine, and the grand prize of ₱100,000. Emil Paden and the other Top 6 finalists were immediately offered jobs before the announcement of the winner.

Eat Bulaga! also pledged to process the job applications of the other contestants with help from the Association of Filipino Franchisers, Inc. (AFFI). The noontime show also held a job fair at the Broadway Centrum the following Monday on 20 January 2014 in order to help any unemployed Filipinos with finding a job.
