Robert Riu Andrews, popularly known as Bobby Andrews (born November 30, 1975) is a Filipino actor, tv host and former matinee idol. Starting out as a commercial model, he rose to fame when he teamed up with Angelu de Leon in the famous teen-oriented television show T.G.I.S. and its sequel Growing Up.


His team up with Angelu de Leon in the mid and late 1990s made him very popular. Their TV shows gained sky-high ratings and their movies were blockbuster hits. His popularity almost came to a halt when in 1998, at the peak of his and de Leon's popularity, Angelu admitted that she was pregnant with Joko Diaz's child. Despite this, Bobby had the full support of his mother company Viva and managed to get TV and movie roles as a solo actor. After breaking away from Viva in 2002, he shifted from matinee idol roles to offbeat roles in several ABS-CBN and GMA Network shows.

In 2009, Bobby appeared in the Philippine remake series of Zorro aired on GMA Network. He was part of the installment of Sine Novela called Kaya Kong Abutin Ang Langit with Iza Calzado, Wendell Ramos and Angelika dela Cruz.

In 2010, he went back to ABS-CBN to become part of the Precious Hearts Romances Presents of Martha Cecila's Impostor. He was also seen in the hit primetime remake of Emil Cruz Jr.'s Mara Clara.
