“Hello #AldubNation pwede ko po bang mahingi ang tulong nyo para sa laban ko sa Miss Universe?” (Hello #AldubNation, can I please ask for your help in my fight for Miss Universe?) Pia’s caption started, before she explained that the voting will only work during the live show, and not the delayed telecast.

AlDub is short for Alden (Alden Richards) and Yaya Dub (Maine Mendoza), a popular tandem from the noontime variety show Eat Bulaga. Their large fanbase, the “AlDub nation” has been known to break Twitter trend records.

The tandem also popularized the pabebe wave, as in the beginning of the series, they could only communicate with each other through glances and gestures on a split-screen TV.

Aside from calling on the AlDub nation, Pia also tagged Eat Bulaga co-host Pauleen Luna, and actor Paolo Ballesteros, who plays a role in the show’s segment that involves AlDub.

The two have responded by posting the mechanics for voting on their own Instagram accounts and calling for support.
