The heat is on for both Eat Bulaga and It's Showtime as AlDub enjoyed #ALDUBSummerGetaway while Vice Ganda celebrated his birthday during #ShowtimeUnkabogabLeDay.
EAT BULAGA. For their summer getaway, Alden Richards, Maine Mendoza, Lola Nidora (Wally Bayola) and Lola Tinidora (Jose Manalo) traveled to Lake Island Solar Pontoon Resort in Binangonan Rizal for some R & R (rest and recreation).
They were joined by Yaya Pak and Yaya Git during the episode dubbed as #ALDUBSummerGetaway.
Lola Nidora suggested a fun water challenge for the AlDub love team of Alden and Maine.
The two had to complete five tasks in a span of five minutes.
First, Alden and Divina had to finish eating a wedge of watermelon. After eating, both of them jumped into the pool and carried a ball using only their cheeks.
For the third task, Divina sat on top of Alden’s shoulders to grab a banana heart hanging from the banderitas.
Then, the two had an “underwater” task wherein they had to find five letters spelling out ALDUB.
They then spelled out ALDUB on a white board along with a heart sign.
Although they did not complete the challenge within five minutes, Lola Nidora gave them permission to go to any resort that they want without a chaperone.
Right after the challenge, everybody enjoyed swimming in the pool!
