Eat Bulaga' Needs New Blood For Their Lineup Of Hosts. Maine Mendoza's Rumored Romance With Sef Cadayona Questioned By Fans

‘EAT BULAGA’ needs new blood, especially now that two of their hosts are preggy, Pia Guanio and Pauleen Luna. They need a new love team now that the AlDub noontime attraction has peaked. They can tap any of the younger guys at the Kapuso network, like Derrick Monasterio or Ruru Madrid or Kristoffer Martin, all of whom are potential new heartthrobs who can sing and dance well. Then find a new Maine character to be paired with any of them to create a new love team that will attract the fans anew.

Meanwhile, now that “Destined to Be Yours” has ended, the talks linking Maine to Sef Cadayona get louder than ever. This started some months ago but Maine denied it. It came up again after Maine posted photos of her videoke singing session with her good friends Juancho Trivino and Sheena Halili, her co-stars in “Destined” that AlDub fans say are obviously taken at the home of Sef Cadayona in Paranaque.

Sef himself is not in the photos but the fans quickly concluded that it’s the house of the young comedian as seen in “Dream Home” of GMA last year. But naturally, fans loyal to the AlDub love team quickly questioned and bashed Maine, calling her “malandi”. Writers we’ve talked to about this surmise that there must really something more than meets the eye in the relationship of Maine and Sef.

In fairness to Sef, he is very quiet and oh so secretive about it, just like the time when he was rumored to be on with Andrea Torres. It’s Maine who seems to be more careless. Wonder how she will defend herself this time, especially now that she is about to start making a new movie with Alden Richards.

If it would be proven that she’s actually on with Sef off cam and not with Alden, no doubt that would hurt her tandem with Alden and the movie that they are about to shoot on location abroad. Maine was the special guest at Alden’s hit “Upsurge” concert at Kia Theatre last Saturday. And judging from the wild reception of their fans when they did their sexy dance number, it’s pretty obvious that AlDub diehards still ardently support their tandem. Now that they no longer have a primetime show, expect to see more of them in “Eat Bulaga” at lunchtime.
