#ALDUBMostAwaitedDate pushes through, but…
So near, yet so far.
The “most awaited date” of star-crossed lovers Alden Richards and Yaya Dub in “Eat Bulaga’s” hit segment “Kalyeserye” pushed through on Saturday afternoon but it is unclear what happened to Maine Mendoza’s character.
Things didn’t go easy for Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye” couple–at least before they saw each other.
They first had to play a matching game where they had to answer Nidora’s questions and come up with same answer to prove that they are really MFEO or “made for each other.” One point equals to one base until they reached their meeting place.
And when the pair got seven questions correctly, the fun began and the disaster too.
However, minutes into the date, Mendoza was forced to leave in order to bring Lola Nidora’s medicine to her. Bayola’s character later discouraged her but Mendoza was already in the vehicle.
While the camera showed Richards going through the pieces of paper left by Mendoza, the sound of a car braking was heard in the background.
Both the studio and television audience were left to wonder what happened to Mendoza.
At 3:30 p.m. Saturday, the hashtag #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate surpassed the 10-million mark on Twitter.
AlDub recently celebrated their second month on Tuesday with Alden serenading Yaya Dub through their split-screen interaction. He also sent her a heart-shaped locket with their faces on it and lots of red roses.
“Kahit dalawang buwan pa lang ang nakakaraan ang dami nang nangyari…may masasaya..may mga malulungkot..may masasakait..pero lahat ng to mayroon tayong natututunan..at walang hindi makakayanan basta handa tayo at ito ang gusto natin” Alden said in a love letter addressed to Yaya.
(Even if only two months have passed, so many things have happened…there are happy ones, and there are sad ones…there are also painful ones. But we have all learned a lesson…and we can do all things as long as we are ready and we like what we are doing.)
Alden also gave P100,000 to a 73-year-old widow from Sta. Mesa, Manila. It was Maine’s cash prize from the “AlDub Battle For A Cause” for the “Bulaga Pa More, Dabarkads Pa More” Wildcard edition where she emerged as the winner against Alden.
The day after, Lola Nidora gave her blessings to the couple and allowed them to meet for their very first date.
The other two grandmothers Lola Tidora (Paolo Ballesteros) and Tinidora (Jose Manalo) helped Yaya in choosing the best outfit for the date and taught her the essential dating etiquette.
The popular segment of Eat Bulaga has trumped rivals’ shows on television and through social media. KS/IDL
