2. Describe the partnership with your Eat Bulaga! co-host, Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza? How did it come about?

Alden Richards: It began as a sort of accident. A happy accident! It was a regular day on Eat Bulaga. Maine as Yaya Dub was doing the Dubsmash bit during the “Juan For All All For One” segment out on the streets, while I was in the studio at Broadway Centrum. Suddenly the camera focused on me watching Yaya Dub from the TV screen in the studio. When Yaya Dub saw that she began to blush and everyone felt the chemistry between us. The staff then decided to have us do Dubsmash videos for one another, and the rest, as they say, is history.
