Miss Philippines-Universe Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach openly sought the help of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza’s fans, collectively known as ALDUB NATION, on Instagram. She did this by posting a photo of herself doing AlDub’s signature pabebe wave with a lengthy caption.
For those who don’t know, one slot in the Miss Universe 2015 Top 15 is guaranteed to the one who will get the most number of text votes during the live coronation night. With the help of the AlDub Nation, known for its numerous chapters in the country and different parts of the globe, Pia will have higher chances of bringing home the crown. The fan base is well-known for its strong digital force and online presence. These are the people behind the 41 million tweets during Eat Bulaga’s Sa Tamang Panahon concert that beat the World Cup record on Twitter. Months leading to that record-breaking Twitter stint, the AlDub Nation has already produced millions of AlDub-related tweets worldwide, beating their own record week after week.
Here’s the LINK to the Miss Universe 2015 text voting and to Pia’s call for support on Instagram:
