Eat Bulaga hosts Paolo Contis and Arra San Agustin were reportedly being conditioned to launch another ‘AlDub’ phenomenon.
It can be recalled that in 2015, Kalyeserye, where the tandem between Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza was introduced, became one of the most popular segments of Eat Bulaga and even achieved a world record.
According to veteran columnist Cristy Fermin, it was possible that Eat Bulaga wanted to replicate their success in 2015 amid the stiff rating contest between them and other noontime shows.
However, she believed it would not be successful compared to what they achieved in 2015.
“Kung gimik ito na mala-AlDub dahil nagtagumpay ang Eat Bulaga noon dahil kina Alden Richards at Maine Mendoza, hindi na po ito panahon na ganoon. Ibang klase na po ang labanan ngayon. Alam na nating kumilatis kung ano ang de-color at kung ano ang puti,”” said Cristy.
“Ibang klase na po ang labanan ngayon. Alam na nating kumilatis kung ano ang de-color at kung ano ang puti. Hindi magandang gimik ‘yun sa isang programa para tumaas,” she added.
Paolo already confirmed that his sweet gestures towards Arra were only part of their ‘sketch’ on Eat Bulaga.
The controversial host also denied that he was already developing feelings towards Arra.
