Jake Ejercito and Alden Richards finally met during the #ALDUBPaandarNiDudang episode of Eat Bulaga while It's Showtime celebrated #ShowtimeSaturYey.
EAT BULAGA. Divina (Maine Mendoza), Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) and Lola Tinidora (Jose Manalo) visited the home of Caitlyn Smash (Allan K) where a sumptuous lunch was prepared for them.
Upon entry to the house, the Lolas and Divina were ushered in by the “welcome committee” - the two Foreignoys and a marching band playing upbeat music.
Alden Richards joined them after completing his trip to Dubai. Alden brought pasalubong from Dubai: banana cue and carioca. After a short while, Jake Ejercito also made a surprise visit. Jake is Divina’s classmate helping her with school project.
The “tisoy” gentlemen finally met. Divina was teasing Alden about his “jealousy” over Jake.
Jake brought a business proposal that aims to help aspiring businessmen. “Mag invite ng young entrepreneurs, ang mga kabataan para ma-train sa negosyo.”
Divina teased Alden. “Dati nagseselos ka sa kanya…” Alden just laughed goodnaturely and laughed off Divina’s teasing. He told Jake earnestly, “Nice meeting you. Salamat sa pagtulong mo kay Divina sa project niya.”
After lunch, Caitlin reminded Divina about the gifts she gave her: a Barbie doll, a card and a small black box. She later announced that it was “right time” for Divina to open the mysterious black box. Lola Nidora handed it to Divina who opened the box, which contained a key.
Caitlin requested Divina to show the key to Lola Nidora. Upon seeing the key, Lola Nidora exclaimed, “Susi ito ng mansion!”
Upon stating this, the horn sounded, marking the end of the episode.
There are questions left unanswered. “Pinatutufbos na ba ang mansion? Si Caitlin ba ang pinagsanlaan ng mansion?”
