Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza (better known as Yaya Dub) set Twitter on fire as their official hashtag #ALDUBBATTLEForACause reached 5.8 million tweets on Saturday, September 5.
After eight weeks of interacting only on split screen during their Kalyeserye segment on Eat Bulaga, Alden and Yaya Dub finally saw each other in person as they battle for the “Bulaga Pa More” wildcard edition.
The much anticipated meeting of the two broke records on Twitter despite Lola Nidora getting in the way and stopping the ‘kilig’ moment by putting barrier between them when they were about to get closer to each other. AlDub broke their own record on August 29 with 3.5 million tweets for the hashtag #ALDUBMaiDenHeaven and besting the 3.3 million tweets for Pope Francis’ January visit.
Alden and Maine also took to Twitter to express their gratitude to all the fans who made the hashtag trend both nationwide and worldwide.
Later in the episode, Yaya Dub was kidnapped by two men wearing bonnets and was taken away in a van. Will Alden ever see Yaya Dub again? Who are the men who kidnapped Yaya? Can the Aldub Nation beat their Twitter record again?
The First Time. #priceless#ALDUBBattleForACause
