MANILA, Philippines – It looks like there's hope for AlDub fans, as Yaya Dub and Frankie Arinoli's wedding on Saturday, August 22 was considered null. (READ: #AlDub, the story so far: Alden and Yaya Dub's forbidden love)
Yaya Dub and Frankie Arinoli (#YaKie), characters from Eat Bulaga's segment "Juan for All, All for Juan," were supposed to be married in the August 22 episode, before 2:30 pm, as it was Lola' Nidora's dying wish.
The old lady, for whom Yaya Dub works, was set to die on that specific day and time, prompting her to ask to see the two wed, even though Yaya didn't want to.
The pastor pronounced them "Mr and Mrs Arinoli," but before the couple could kiss, Frankie was asked to sign a check – worth around P50 million – and turn it over to Lola Nidora.
Meanwhile, Alden was trying to get into the wedding venue to stop the wedding, even though he promised Lola he would let Yaya marry Frankie.
Fans have been rooting for Yaya Dub and Alden to finally meet and be together, even though Lola Nidora is against it. Their tandem name, #AlDub, has been trending online for weeks since the segment started.
Before Frankie could finish signing the check, cops barged into the wedding venue and accused the pastor of being fake – Yaya Dub and Frankie's marriage can't be considered real.
It was also revealed that Lola wasn't really sick – she was just faking it so that Frankie and Yaya would get married and Frankie would give her the P50 million.
She needed the money to pay the ransom for her Secret Notebook, which was stolen a few episodes ago. The notebook contains her reason for being against #AlDub.
Lola Nidora apologized to Alden and Yaya, saying that love will come at the right time. "Ang pag-ibig nararamdaman, hindi binibili, pinaglalaban, iniingatan at ipinagkakaloob sa tamang panahon," she said. (Love is felt, not bought, [it is] fought for, taken care of, and granted at the right time.)
The episode ended with Alden holding up a sign saying, "Alden loves Maine." Fans have been hoping that actors Maine Mendoza and Alden Richards would become a couple in real life.
This isn't the first time that a #YaKie wedding has been avoided. On August 8, Frankie and Yaya were supposed to be wed, but Maine Mendoza fainted during the live show due to fatigue.
