On July 16, 2015, national television witnessed the birth of AlDub in Eat Bulaga. It happened in a rather unexpected way when a cameraman accidentally panned the camera on Maine Mendoza, who was crushing hard on Alden Richards behind the scenes. They would exclusively interact through the show’s split screen frame and the whole nation saw how their characters evolved.
A few months after their astronomical rise as TV’s newest love team, they made history when 55,000 fans trooped to the Philippine Arena for the #AlDubEBTamangPanahon event. Twitter had its biggest online shindig. The hashtag generated 40 million tweets as verified by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Three years since their rise to superstardom, Maine and Alden are still the top love team on Twitter, the love team’s bailiwick. And as the entire AlDub nation celebrates this milestone, let’s have a rundown of the top love teams on Twitter based on data from Entertainment Index Midyear 2018 .
The phenomenal love team remains unbeatable on Twitter. As AlDub nation itself puts it, “ALDUB is standing strong and remains as the hottest love team of this generation.” With a combined following of close to 10 million, it is really no surprise that AlDub is still number one.
It all started inside the Pinoy Big Brother house, jolly Maymay Entrata and shy guy Edward Barber were fated to be one of the most talked love teams today. Their projects were immediately linedup as soon as they got out of the popular house. Enjoying the success of their love team, they landed on numerous magazines covers, appeared in a top-rating series, and even headlined their own movie.
Kisses Delavin is being paired up with two of the most sought after and rising leading men of their generation, but her team up with Donny Pangilinan seems to get the bigger seal of approval among fans. The spark mildly started when Donny became Kisses’s escort in her debut. The love team was then reinforced in Walwal, their latest movie where they both portrayed nerdy characters.
Fans are obviously confused on which love team to support. A lot of fans ship the Kisses and Tony Labrusca team up, too, eventhough they don’t have any projects together yet. It all started with commenting on each other’s Instagram posts. And that’s probably what their network noticed that’s why they are trying to test their chemistry in a project for ABS-CBN Lifestyle Channel.
The ever reel-to-real couple doesn’t need much projects to keep in touch with their fans. Individually, James Reid and Nadine Lustre have a lot of things going on with their respective careers. Together, they form a sturdy love team that dominates multimedia. Nickie Wang
