Philippines? phenomenal love team AlDub, short for Alden (Richards) and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza), recently celebrated their first anniversary as a love team. Fans have always loved the AlDub love team, but last Saturday, the show’s plot pointed to them being referenced using their real names, coining the not-so-new moniker ‘MaiChard.’
However, at this point in their career, it seems like fans should now decide what name should they use to address the couple – Are they going to stick with ?AlDub?? Or should they change it to ?MaiChard??
The term ?AlDub? is what the fans have been using ever since the power couple teamed up. It was a combination of the names Alden and Yaya Dub. However, what appears to be the problem with that term is the word ?Dub.?
It is a known fact that Yaya Dub is a fictional character in Kalye Serye of the noontime show Eat Bulaga. If fans are really rooting for Maine and Alden to be a real couple, they should use a term that is based on the real names of the couple. A term like ?MaiChard? would be a good example of it based on Maine and Richard (Alden?s real name — Richard Faulkerson Jr).
If the term would be used to address the couple instead of ?Aldub,? it would be more romantic especially with the fact that Maine?s name would be combined to Alden?s last name on television amd could signal a new season of the beloved Kalyeserye which some people say are losing steam. However, one can’t deny the sentimental reasons of retaining AlDub which propelled the two to meteoric heights.?
So, how about you? What term do you think fans should be using to address the love team? Is it ?AlDub? or ?MaiChard?? Share your thoughts by participating in the poll below.
Meanwhile, speaking of Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards, they recently released their very first movie, Imagine You And Me, where they both took the lead roles. Ever since its official release on big screens, the film has already broken some records on Philippine cinemas.
