Alden Richards and the unexpected popularity of the AlDub love team

Nobody saw it coming, as many would think a short skit on an afternoon show is passé, something that has been done many times before.  But even GMA 7 actor Alden Richards was taken aback by the popularity of the AlDub love team.

Now trending on social media sites and one of the reasons why Eat Bulaga is on top of the ratings chart, the AlDub love team—composed of Alden and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza never expected the attention and popularity they are receiving now.

The AlDub love team is featured in Eat Bulaga’s All for Juan, Juan for All Problem Solving segment.  Alden and Maine were accidentally paired up when the camera caught the latter feeling giddy when she saw the actor looking at him through a TV monitor.

In an interview on Startalk, Alden said that Maine also did not expect that their love team will garner this much attention.

He also said that he is very happy at how their love team is now a worldwide trending topic on social media.  He is also grateful for being part of the Philippines’ longest-running noontime show.

Sobrang happy po!  Kasi ilang artista po ba ang nabibigyan ng chance na mag-host sa isang malaking noontime show na Eat Bulaga,” he said.

Alden humbly admits that he doesn’t want his fame to get into his head.  Instead, he is focusing his energy to give his best as the situation calls for it.

Kaya kung anuman ang nire-require ng sitwasyon, handa akong ibigay,” Alden stated.


We are storming the heavens for prayers for the speedy recovery of actress-comedienne Elizabeth Ramsey who is now recovering after she was rushed to the hospital last week.

According to her Facebook post last August 9, soul diva Jaya said that her mother did not suffer a stroke but had a seizure due to diabetes/hyperglycemia.

“Mama Beth Ramsey did NOT have a stroke.  Instead a seizure due to diabetes/hyperglycemiz.  She is moving and is recovering fast and communicates constantly,” she wrote.

She also thanked all the fans for their support and prayers.  

“Thank you all very much for all the prayers. God bless you Mama and all of you who sent love and hugs!!! We love all of you,” Jaya added.”
