Premiering on Monday, April 4, at 8:30 PM MT

Mischief with real meaning—that’s the name of the game with Random Acts, BYUtv’s new original hidden camera series. A team of proficient pranksters goes undercover to make deserving people’s dreams come true—whether it be a student who was forced to give up a music scholarship because of illness, a family who spent Christmas in the hospital, or a random passerby on the sidewalk. The show premieres this Monday, April 4 at 8:30 PM MT on BYUtv.

We talked to two of Random Acts hosts, Emilie Starr and Will Rubio, about their experiences on the show. Here’s what they had to say about all the heartwarming hijinks!

BYUtv: How did you first get involved with Random Acts?

Emilie: I found the audition on Facebook [and] immediately fell in love with the concept. It was like they reached into my soul and pulled out a TV show! So, I auditioned and crossed my fingers.

BYUtv: What sets Random Acts apart from other television programs?

Will: The media is overrun with negativity, so an entertaining show that also has a positive message is a breath of fresh air.

BYUtv: What has been the most surprising part of Random Acts?

Will: I’ve met so many extraordinary people through the show. Not only those who have been grateful for the help we provided them, but people we partnered up with that do this sort of thing all the time…. I was so impressed and inspired by all of them.

BYUtv: Has anyone gotten mad at any of your ‘kindness pranks’?

Emilie: I did get my hair pulled during one of the pranks—but, in all fairness, the guy thought I was trying to steal his wife’s cell phone…. That’s what I get for trying to be sneaky—and not being very good at it!

BYUtv: What is the number one thing you hope viewers will take away from Random Acts?

Will: If people who watch the show are encouraged to step outside their comfort zones to help someone in need, I think that’s a win.
