The handlers of the AlDub love team had not set a date yet as to when Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza and Alden Richards can appear on the show. Aside from Kalyeserye and their first movie “My Bebe Love”, the schedules of the two stars are fully booked. The AlDub love team have a line-up of endorsement deals, photo shoots, and guest appearances.
According to Calderon, the handlers are trying to fix the schedules of Yaya Dub and Alden Richards for the Ellen DeGeneres show.
AlDub fans have been waiting for Ellen DeGeneres to invite Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza and Alden Richards on her show for quite some time.
A member of the AlDub nation had even edited a photo with Ellen DeGeneres holding a fansign which says, “I want AlDub on The Ellen show!” This altered photo circulated online in the last week of September. The fansign originally carried a birthday greeting for Sam Smith.
The AlDub love team has already been featured by international media, most notably BBC, Bloomberg and BuzzFeed. The phenomenal love team will also be featured in the December issue of Reader’s Digest.
Fans of the love team, collectively known as the AlDub nation, has pushed the love team to worldwide attention via social media. AlDub related hashtags are tweeted in the millions everyday and has broken record after record.
The #ALDubEBTamangPanahon hashtag is the world record holder for the most tweeted hashtag, with 41 million tweets. This was achieved on October 24, during the charity concert “Sa Tamang Panahon” held at the Philippine Arena. It surpassed the 35.6 million tweets held by FIFA about Germany’s win over rival Brazil in the World Cup semi-finals.
The show of comedian Ellen DeGeneres is popular among Filipinos because it had mostly featured Filipinos whose videos had gone viral on YouTube. Ellen was instrumental in the launching of the career of Charice Pempengco. She had also guested Arnel Pineda, Rhap Salazar, Balang, “Random Girl” Zendee Rose Tenerefe and the duo Aldrich Lloyd Talonding and James Walter Bucong.
Once featured on The Ellen DeGeneres show, the AlDub nation will no longer have to edit photos of Ellen with the AlDub. They will be circulating real photos on the internet this time. Who knows, the AlDub nation just might decide to break their own Twitter record to celebrate AlDub’s guesting on the show.
