Watch: Yaya Dub ‘Scolded’ for Her Pabebe Wave to Alden Richards (Video)
Bad news, Yaya Dub fans! Our newest Eat Bulaga Dabarkads was scolded on live TV for being too much ‘pabebe’ to heartthrob Alden Richards. The unexpected scenario happened this Friday, July 17 on the noontime show segment, “Problem Solving.” Watch how it did happened and find out her reaction.
In case you didn’t know yet, Yaya Dub met Alden Richards on the said segment the day before. That time, the snobbish maid of Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) was making her dubsmash act. But when she realized that the handsome matinee idol is watching her, she was distracted, and smiled for the very first time on camera.
Born Maine Mendoza and known as the Dubsmash Queen of the Philippines for her Kris Aquino dubsmash compilation, she was introduced on Eat Bulaga’s “Problem Solving” this month as Yaya Dub. Since then, she started capturing the hearts of the Pinoy televiewers, and was even featured on GMA-7’s “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho (KMJS) last week.
And because of the ‘pabebe’ of Yaya Dub to Aldren Richards was loved by many EB fans, the male idol watched her again. But unlike on the earlier episode where she was obviously surprised, Maine Mendoza now appeared to be relax. But this time, Lola Nidora did not seem to like her act and “scolded” Yaya Dub on live TV.
“Ang crush, parang math problem. Kung di mo makuha, titigan mo na lang.” Yay Dub said, but of course via her dubmash version and with her signature pabebe wave. Bae Alden responded with wave to the excitement of the studio audience. Maine Mendoza obviously blushed but tried to maintain her composure.
(Crush is like a math problem, if you cannot get him, just stare at him.)
But when Lola Nidora noticed her, she told Yaya Dub to act like a traditional, conservative Filipina. She told the Dubsmash Queen that it is not good if she will be doing this everyday. So later, Yaya Dub used his fan to cover her face from Lola Nidora as she does her pabebe wave to Bae Alden again. They even made a camera-to-camera kiss.
Obviously, their rising love team is being well loved by netizens as they become a trending topic on Twitter that afternoon. This is despite the fact they haven’t seen each other in person. But as we mentioned earlier, we think they have a strong chemistry in front of the camera. We can therefore say that there is more to come for them as a “cute couple.”
