Filipinos across the globe enjoy and experience intense kilig with Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) in the first ever kalyeserye on the longest-running noon time show in the Philippines, Eat Bulaga.
Their record-breaking tandem, widely known as “AlDub”, started to gain popularity during an episode last July, when Yaya Dub got distracted with Alden who was focused on the split screen. It was not long after that AlDub’s story progressed, and became the talk on social media, not to mention bringing Eat Bulaga to even greater heights in terms of nationwide ratings.
During AlDub’s segment last Saturday, August 8, Yaya Dub passed out due to fatigue while supposedly about to get married to Jose Manalo’s character Frankie Arenolli. Jose, together with Wally and the whole production staff, took hold of the situation in a professional manner and kept the show going, while making sure to aide Maine. She was rushed to the hospital and the show continued without her.
Later during the day, Maine posted on her Instagram a photo of her with the caption saying that she was not feeling well since the morning. “We’re too busy preparing for the segment that I forgot to take my meds. That’s probably the reason why I passed out during our cue. None of it was scripted. I was immediately rushed to the hospital so I can have myself checked. But nothing to worry, they said it’s all because of over fatigue. Super appreciate all the love and concern from everyone! Rampa na ulit si Yaya Dub!”
Meanwhile, Aldenwas supposed to rush to the wedding to meet Yaya Dub. He tweeted Yaya Dub and said, “Akala ko eto na yung tamang panahon. Get well soon.”
AlDub trended all over social media because of this event, and viewers have never been more excited for the love team’s long awaited meeting.
GMA’s international flagship channel, GMA Pinoy TV, opens doors for AlDub fans overseas to watch Eat Bulaga and fully experience the fun and excitement of Alden and Yaya Dub’s entertainment.
