After trying to uncover if KJ Apa and Cole Sprouse do have Filipino roots, Netflix's Tom dela Cruz is at it again. His suspect this time? You's Penn Badgley. As part of Netflix Philippines' social media series Secret Filipino Files, Tom launches an all out investigation to prove that Penn is, without a doubt, Filipino. And who better to act as his accomplice for this all too important mystery? His co-star, Shay Mitchell A.K.A. "Ang kilabot ng Pampanga," of course!
We have to admit, Tom has quite the arsenal of evidence under his belt. From unearthing that Penn moved to Los Angeles (ahem, Pampanga) when he was 11, to showing on-cam that he chews a Penn de sal like only a true Filipino would, it would seem we've found ourselves another fellow kababayan. Even Shay, in all her pancit-loving enthusiasm, agrees. She quips convincingly, "[It's] proof that you're Filipino, okay!"
So, is Penn really a true-blooded Filipino? Watch the video below to find out!
