10 Facepalm Moments From Teleseryes
The Internet always finds out.
(SPOT.ph) When it comes to teleseryes, Pinoys always have something interesting to look forward to. While the plot twists and love teams will get you hooked, not everything about the TV shows are as polished as they can be. (You can’t blame them, though—sometimes they edit the episodes right before they air.) Still, it’s always hilarious when fans notice the bloopers that might have gone unnoticed by the cast and crew. It means fans are paying attention! We list down the ones that will make you laugh out loud.
A “Dead” Character Scratching His Nose on Ang Probinsyano
It’s not really a big deal when you see a bit player scratching his nose during a scene. Maybe they just couldn’t help it. But it’s something else when the bit player is already in a body bag—and supposedly dead. A Facebook user posted the funny video on September 11, saying, "Ngayon lang ako nakakita ng patay na nagkakamot ng ilong.”

The Garterized Mask on Victor Magtanggol
At first look, it might seem that the Alden Richards-starrer Victor Magtanggol had budget cuts because of the garterized mask of Andrea Torres’ character, Sif. But when someone posted a photo of it on Twitter, an avid fan of the show defended the costume as it was apparently part of the plot. “Kaya garter ‘yang maskara ni Sif (Torres) kasi nga napulot lang po niya ‘yan sa isang cosplay event. Dahil nalaglag lang din ng isang cosplayer. Ginamit niya ‘yan dahil sakto may mga kalaban at need niya mag [suot ng] mask para di makilala.” That surprisingly...makes sense!
GMA’s Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera Starring on ABS-CBN’s Ang Probinsyano
You might expect fans of Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera to only be tuned into GMA-7, but some of them were alert enough to notice that their idols’ real-life family photo was being used as a prop in ABS-CBN’s Ang Probinsyano. The photos used on the show edited out Dantes and Rivera’s faces, but not their daughter Zia’s. Dantes took notice of the edited images and called out the production team of Ang Probinsyano for using his family’s personal photos.
The Plastic Gun Scene on Ika-6 Na Utos
There are a lot of memorable confrontation scenes from teleseryes, but none of them comes close to this scene from Ika-6 Na Utos. When archenemies Georgia (Ryza Cenon) and Emma (Sunshine Dizon) run into each other at a baby store, they grab for the same stroller. Things then start heating up—which might be why they start threatening to shoot each other...with plastic guns. It’s not exactly a blooper, but the ridiculousness of it all makes it hilarious and meme-worthy.

Eddie Garcia Using a “Flip” Phone on Ang Probinsyano
Smartphones might be all the rage nowadays, but who says you can’t go back to using a flip phone? Or maybe you can just literally flip a phone like Eddie Garcia did on Ang Probinsyano. None other than Vice Ganda noticed the mistake and posted it on his own Twitter account asking if it was real. He then posted a photo mimicking the mistake saying, “Kami talagang dalawa ang magkausap.”
Napaka-modern ng Encantadia.. kitang kita ang monobloc pic.twitter.com/3xfEsOgXrJ— Princess Sarah (@BeshieMendiola) March 3, 2017
The Plastic Chair on Encantadia
The mystical world of Encantadia is full of folklore, magic, and apparently, plastic chairs. The Internet wondered if the chair was part of the “modern” reimagining of the 2016 reboot, but it was (thankfully) just part of an outtake. Fans of the show said that the chair didn’t appear on the actual episode that aired, so it was most likely edited out.
The Lifeless CPR on Kambal Karibal
Not everyone knows how to do CPR—but they would at least know what it’s supposed to look like, and it’s definitely not how Kambal Karibal depicted it. While the loved ones of Geraldine (Carmina Villaroel) are crying into each other’s arms in the same room, the nurse “performing” the resuscitation is merely just moving her shoulders up and down while her hands are on the patient’s chest. Even the ghost of Geraldine looks confused.
ANUNA BAGANI??? Nike pa more pic.twitter.com/yqbwuocIfV— Chris Pino (@chrisandreaa) April 22, 2018
The Nike Slipper on Bagani
In a made-up world like that of Bagani’s, you can’t really expect its characters to wear the same outfits as people in the real world. Well, except maybe if they’re Nike slides. In a scene where Lila (Ana Abad Santos) is walking through a forest, she is followed by men wearing slippers covered with what look like leaves—but only one of them has that trademark swoosh.
The Nebulizer-Slash-Oxygen-Mask from Wildflower
There are many reasons why “wild” is in this teleserye’s name. Case in point: The plot-twist-filled wedding, which ranked second on our Top 10 Most Entertaining Teleserye Weddings. Another reason is the episode where a bleeding Ivy (Maja Salvador) is rushed to the hospital with a nebulizer mask (that’s used for asthma) instead of an oxygen mask.
The “Fall” from Kambal Karibal
Sometimes, you just have to make do with what you have and hope that nobody notices. In one episode of Kambal Karibal, twins Crisan (Bianca Umali) and Crisel (Pauline Mendoza) are fighting on a building’s rooftop. Things get out of hand when Crisan pushes Crisel to the edge of the high-walled rooftop, leading Crisel to (obviously) climb on top of a box before “accidentally” falling off the building.
