AlDub fans are waiting on a big surprise, with Saturday’s show promising to finally answer the question — what’s in Lola Nidora’s blue folder?
The drama between Yaya Dub and Alden Richards has reached a fever pitch on the Filipino noontime show Eat Bulaga, with consistently high ratings and a fanbase that has virtually taken over Twitter. Those behind the KalyeSeyre have milked the attention for all its worth, drawing out the meetings between the two lovers and injecting plenty of drama.
This week the speculation has been on what’s inside Lola Nidora’s blue folder, with plenty of hints to keep fans tuning in. Now it appears they will get their answer on Saturday, with the show’s daily hashtag of #ALDubTheBigSurprise appearing to promise a reveal of just what it could be.
There is already plenty of speculation. Many think it will predict Yaya Dub’s return from the province, where she has been away from Alden.

Fans have already been treated to plenty of romantic moments between Yaya Dub and Alden, even though they remain apart. On Thursday the couple celebrated their weeksary and on Friday had their third month together.
There also appears to be some warming between Alden and Lola Nidora, who appeared slow to accept Yaya Dub’s lover.
Australia Network News noted:
“Lola Nidora (played by Filipino actor Wally Bayola) recalled the sweet gestures of Alden to them in the last episode. Alden then appeared on the screen with a ‘dubsmash’ performance.
“Tinidora (played by Filipino actor Jose Manalo) noted the resemblance between Alden and Yaya. She said that those who look alike usually end up together. Lola Nidora agreed.”
Friday’s episode actually showed Lola Nidora wishing Alden a happy third monthsary, praising him for his persistence despite the obstacles. Lola also promised a surprise, but kept putting off opening the blue folder. It would appear that Saturday’s #ALDubTheBigSurprise hashtag means it will finally be opened.
There could be another surprise as well. After Alden and Yaya Dub shared a brief but loving phone call, the phone rang once more. This time it was Isadora, saying she planned to visit and make her first appearance on the show.
The anticipation for Saturday’s KalyeSeyre has been building for hours before the show even started. There were tens of thousands of tweets, with fans predicting what the surprises could be and sharing their enduring love of Alden and Yaya Dub.

The show has already hit some incredible records on Twitter. On September 26, the hashtag ALDubEBforLOVE recorded more than 26 million tweets, coming very close to the all-time record of 28.4 million global tweets for Super Bowl XLIX on February 1, 2015. And that was coming from the Philippines, a country that has fewer than 100 million people, about one-third of the population in the United States where the Super Bowl is a national phenomena.
There is a chance that record could fall as well. As the anticipation builds for AlDub fans to find out just what #ALDubTheBigSurprise is referring to, the number of tweets has grown steadily. If it reveals something big for Alden and Yaya Dub, the Twitterverse could once again go crazy.
