Just The Way You Are[2][3](originally titled The Bet) is a 2015 Filipino teen romantic comedy-drama film directed by Theodore Boborol, and written by Maan Dimaculangan-Fampulme and Ceres Helga Barrios, starring the hit ‘Forevermore’ tandem of Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano.[4][5] The film is based on the best-selling Pop Fiction book ‘‘The Bet’’ which was originally published on Wattpad by Kimberly Joy Villanueva (ilurvbooks).[1][6][7]


In love, the stakes are high. When you live for no one... or when you have almost no one... will you still bet your all?

The story follows a popular guy named Drake Sison (Enrique Gil), who makes a bet with his best friend Andrei (Yves Flores), to make the nerdy transfer student, Sophia Taylor (Liza Soberano), fall in love with him in 30 days. Once she falls for him, he must confess that it was all a bet.
