MANILA – Eat Bulaga host Alden Richards and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza) have finally seen each other face to face as they both performed in the noontime show’s “Bulaga Pa More” segment, Wildcard Edition.
Alden’s performance was inspired by “Mr. Pogi,” while Yaya Dub’s number was inspired by the “Fatalbugan.” Although performing in the same stage, Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) prohibited the on-screen couple from seeing each other. She even reminded Alden about their condition after his performance.
After the two performed, however, both were confused whether they should take the chance to see each other or keep their promise not to meet personally. Alden and Yaya Dub, later on, decided to try to get a glimpse of each other.
But after meeting briefly, a wall immediately hindered them from approaching the other as Lola Nidora once again got in the way.
Two men immediately took Yaya Dub from the stage, then the barrier was removed. Alden tried to look for her but she was already gone.
Although their brief meeting did not end well, Alden and Yaya Dub seemed happy and remained hopeful that they would see each other again.
It was nice seeing you…. so nice. I am very glad.

Alden and Yaya Dub first met through television screens during the show’s “Juan for All, All for Juan” segment. Eventually, they began falling in love. Lola Nidora, however, has always been against the couple being together.
