You're My Foreignoy is a beauty pageant and talent contest for pure foreign men who are Filipino at heart. Contestants must show their Filipino culture-inspired talent, say hard-to-pronounce Filipino words and proverbs correctly, and delight the viewers with their charm and wit. It is the counterpart of the female version You're My Foreignay. One notable contestant is 2014 grand finalist Richard Hwan who shortly went on to become a housemate in ABS-CBN's reality show Pinoy Big Brother: 737.

In 2015, the second edition was renamed as You're My Foreignoy: Artistahin Talaga! as it added an acting challenge for the contestants.

The title of the segment is a portmanteau of the words "foreign" and "Pinoy."
