1. How has life been ever since you became a part of the Philippines’ longest running noontime variety show, Eat Bulaga?

Alden Richards: My life has changed significantly and dramatically in many ways. I am really happy and grateful to be a part of Eat Bulaga. My hosting skills and my comedic acting and timing have both improved.  The opportunity to be on TV as a host has given me the opportunity to learn from some of the best hosts and comedians in the country, and I am very thankful for that. Eat Bulaga is also where the AlDub phenomenon began. My life has changed a lot from the time AlDub came into my life, and I really appreciate all the blessings that have come my way.
