Before the program ended, Iya got to interview Alden and Maine about their program. Iya started off the interview by asking Alden how Maine did on her first try as a news anchor.
The Kapuso actor was all praises for his on-screen partner. Alden said, "Ang galing nga, e, actually kanina nung ni-rehearse niya one take lang!" He continued, "Nasanay na rin siya siguro siya every day sa Eat Bulaga, yung hosting. 'Sponge' na, e!"
Iya went on to ask if there are things they still want to achieve in the future. Alden said he wishes to travel the world: "Marami pa, of course, in terms of career-wise and personal. Siguro sa personal, siguro yung travel, travel the world."
Maine answred the same and said, "Ganun din, kaya nga kami na lang yung magkasama! Kami na lang yung magkasama!"
24 Oras newscaster Mel Tiangco joined in on the fun and took the opportunity to ask AlDub tandem some questions.
Mel asked Maine, "Ikaw ba Maine nagpapaligaw pa? Meron bang lumiligaw sa 'yong iba?"
Maine laughed before answering, "Iba po? Wala po! Wala pong iba!"
Meanwhile, Alden quipped and whispered, "Siyempre, Tita Mel, alam niyo naman hindi puwede yung ganun, e. Hindi po kasi puwede yung mga ganun Tita Mel. Nandito pa ako, e, nandito pa ako."
Mel also asked them about their stares at each other. "Yun ba ay totohanan o peke lang?"
Maine answered, "Hindi po napepeke yung tingin e, Tita Mel."
Alden added, "So kung ano po yung nakikita niyo..."
Mel even described their eyes as "twinkling" while looking at each other.
Alden added, "Tagos sa kaluluwa, Tita Mel."
Maine quipped, "Tagos sa bone marrow!"
