Alden Richards And Maine Mendoza's Rejoicing After Seeing Them Together Again In 'Eat Bulaga', They Should Do More Projects While They're Still Popular

ALDUB FANS are rejoicing after they saw Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza together again in “Eat Bulaga” last Saturday. For once, Maine is not outside in Juan for All but is inside the studio to join forces with Alden in playing a fun game in the segment called ACTually with the other Dabarkads.

They teamed up together as allies in the Yellow Team and their task is to make a story about an object that Vic Sotto will show them. Vic showed them a coconut or buko and their tream made it appear that it’s Darna’s special “bato” or rock to get her super powers. Vic said Maine as Darna should carry Alden as Ding, so when Alden mounted Maine, who carried him piggyback, all hell broke loose and the whole Broadway studio was filled with deafening and ecstatic screams and shrieks from rejoicing AlDub fans.

Despite negative predictions of some prophets of doom that their popularity as a love team has waned, it’s obvious that the public still loves them very much and this was also evident in the very positive remarks and comments made by their happy fans on social media. They just can’t get enough of their idols who they apparently missed very much after working separately for quite some time.

They’re now clamoring for Alden and Maine to do a new movie since their last one, “Imagine You and Me”, was released nearly two years ago. At this point, we’re really more bothered by Alden’s not having any other exposure than just “Eat Bulaga”. He’s already 26 years old and he's not getting any younger. He's at the peak of his youth and popularity so he must make hay as the sun shines. Hindi niya ito dapat sinasayang kundi sinasamantala, for him to make more film and TV projects.

In four years, he’ll already be 30 and it will be downhill from then on. We heard there’s a co-production project between GMA and a Thai company that would pair him with Thai idol Mario Maurer and another Thai actress, which would be shown in both Manila and Bangkok.

This is a good project and we hope it will become a reality to help further boost Alden’s career since AlDub fans don’t want him to be paired with any local actress other than Maine. As for Maine, she should also not waste her popularity and also start making solo projects, even on TV or in the movies.
