In the first quarter of 2019, MayWard claimed the top spot as the most talked-about love team on Twitter Philippines.
Now that we’re in the second quarter of the year, MayWard is still unstoppable as they retained their ranking. Some love teams have moved up and there are newcomers to the list as well.
1. MayWard (Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber)
This unstoppable pair first met on Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7 with Maymay being named as the Big Winner. The two are working together in ABS-CBN's fantasy show Hiwaga ng Kambat, and Maymay’s latest project is the romantic film Hello, Love, Goodbye which will be released on July 31. Meanwhile, Edward was named as one of the newest VJs of Myx Philippines.
2. AlDub (Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza)
Moving up from the third spot to their current position at number two is AlDub. While their team-up on Eat Bulaga! made them household names overnight, both actors are busy with their own projects. Alden’s latest movie is Hello, Love, Goodbye, while Maine will be working with Carlo Aquino in the upcoming film called Isa Pa With Feelings. Alden said of Maine’s team-up with Carlo, “I'm really happy that Maine is now really exploring acting with a different partner now and doing movie projects alone.”
3. DonKiss (Donny Pangilinan and Kisses Delavin)
Falling to their current position from the second spot last quarter is DonKiss. Kisses said in an Instagram post on June 16 that her on-screen partnership with Donny “has long been over.” Meanwhile, Donny said that he was surprised by Kisses’ statement and said, “To my understanding, the partnership was still under review because of different expectations, with no final decision yet.”
4. KathNiel (Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla)
KathNiel has moved up as the fourth most talked-about love team on Twitter for the second quarter of the year. Kathryn just received a Best Actress award at the recently concluded Eddys for her role on The Hows of Us, a film that she starred in with Daniel. The real-life couple admitted that they were actually an item in August 2018, and they recently celebrated their seventh anniversary in May 2019. Kathryn said on their anniversary, “Staying in love is a decision you make every day. You have to appreciate what you have every single day. You have to grow together—and sometimes that means growing individually, but never growing apart.”
5. JaDine (James Reid and Nadine Lustre)
JaDine rounds up the list of Twitter’s top love teams for the quarter. In June 2019, Nadine won a Gawad Urian Best Actress award for her work on Never Not Love You. Nadine is joining forces with James as they are slated to do a remake of the 2011 Korean movie Spellbound. In March 2019, James accidentally revealed that he and Nadine are actually living in together.
