Alden Richards was put in a difficult situation when a fan asked him about Maine Mendoza on March 10, 2019.
In the March 10 episode of Sunday Pinasaya (SPS), a fan was assigned to ask Alden one question in a segment facilitated by Ai-Ai delas Alas.
The female fan who introduced herself as Nicole asked:
"Anong feeling na pinagpalit ka ni Maine?"
Alden appeared shocked and he put his hand over his mouth as he remained speechless because of the question.
Ai-Ai then quipped: "Maganda yung tanong na 'yan..."
However, Ai-Ai said that Alden did not need to answer the question.
"Invalid yung tanong. Invalid," Alden said with a smile.
After asking the controversial question, the fan named Nicole approached Alden and snapped a selfie with the GMA-7 actor.
When the fan asked the question, a staff member of SPS stood up in the background and could be seen swearing.
It seems the fan replaced the question that was originally assigned to her.
Formed by accident on the July 16, 2015 episode of Eat Bulaga, the phenomenal AlDub tandem of Alden and Yaya Dub (Maine's character back then) became known here and abroad.
This 2019, both Maine and Arjo Atayde admitted that they have been dating each other. The two previously worked with each other in the 2018 Metro Manila Film Fest entry Jack Em Popoy: The Puliscredibles.
The SPS episode trended yesterday on Twitter using the hashtag #SPSFamilyBonding.
