Aldub Courting Event Highlights: Fans’ Support Outpour For Maine Mendoza ‘Yaya Dub’ and Alden Richards on Twitter
Aldub breaches a new milestone both for the storyline of “Kalyeserye” and on Twitter. Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza finally got to spend more time with each other in last Saturday’s episode announced as the “National Pabebe Wave Day” by the noontime show, “Eat Bulaga.”
Last Sept. 26, AldubNation from all over the Philippines and across the world united on Twitter to show their support for the beautiful pair. According to Inquisitr, it reached 25.7 M tweets before Sunday midnight. The hashtag #ALDubEBforLOVE began trending worldwide as early as the wee hours of Saturday. Millions of tweets came rushing from their die-hard supporters, which also include some local celebrities. After Eat Bulaga wrapped up, there is a continuation of the tweet wave, which drew up to 2.5 M for the succeeding hours.
Manila Bulletin shared a summary of the episode. The article also shared Mendoza’s humble gratitude to everyone who supported their “Kalyeserye” series with her split-screen partner. She pointed out that they wouldn’t come that far if it wasn’t for the fans.
What are the highlights of the record-breaking courting event last Saturday? Here are some of them:
Alden breaks down in tears while serenading Maine
In the episode last Thursday, Lola Nidora asked for three conditions and one of it was for Alden to sing “God Gave Me You” to which the courteous lad obliged. He is in the studio and Yaya Dub is seen preparing in their mansion for his arrival when he grabbed the microphone and started singing live. As he was nearing the chorus, he was carried away and was unable to sing some of the lines. The remarkable part of it was the moment he wholeheartedly dedicated the song to Mendoza. He addressed him through her nickname “Meng” which left the fans in the studio shrieking in excitement. Are things becoming real between them?
Their first-ever photo opportunity
Since the beginning of the Aldub chronicle, fans’ hope of seeing them together is expressed through photoshopped pictures. This time, they don’t need to edit at all since they were inches close to each another in a shot taken by Lola Nidora’s butler. Alden’s handsome features were highlighted in his blue polo shirt while Yaya Dub’s lovely looks became more evident in her red, decent dress. Their chemistry was simply overflowing in the picture. It’s noticeable too how happiness is both reflected in their eyes.
Aldub’s sweet lunch date – literally and figuratively
The Explorer sisters (Lola Nidora, Lola Tidora, and Lola Tinidora) led them to their dining area and gave them the chance to be alone. Alden depended on his gentleman gestures as he served the “palabok”(a Filipino pasta dish) and cake to her. Fans were treated to much sweetness in the following scenes: Yaya Dub wiped his sweaty forehead, they “accidentally” held each other’s hands, they were consistently smiling all throughout, and so much more.
The phenomenal duo of Aldub just proved how charismatic they are. Now that the fans smashed the 25 M mark, will they go for a new mark? Will Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza become at ease in the next episodes?
