Dr. Vicki Belo Challenges Alden Richards to Do The “Hello, Love, Goodbye” Challenge
It gets pretty juicy!
Who else is super happy to leave 2020 behind? We’re with you. To kick things off, our very own Dr. Vicki Belo had an award-winning heartthrob as her guest for YouTube channel’s new year special—none other than the gorgeous and talented Alden Richards!
During the show, Dr. Belo invited the (still undisputed) Philippine box-office king to do the “Hello, Love, Goodbye” Challenge in honor of his multi-awarded movie with Kathryn Bernardo. For the challenge, Dr. Belo gave Alden a series of situations, objects, food, and (gasp) persons and he needs to say whether he will say hello, whether he loves them, or whether he’ll say goodbye to them this year.
Did you know that the last time Alden had a girlfriend was when he was in high school? Dr. Belo asked Alden if he has any plans to have a girlfriend this year, but instead, he confidently answered, “I’m planning to get married by 30 (years old), Doc. That’s my plan.” And if you’re curious, Alden is now 28 and super single.
When asked about what he looks for in a partner, he said, “Gusto ko lang doc, ‘yung sinu-support niya ko as much as I support her… Gusto ko we grow separately as individuals, but we also grow together as partners.” He added: “someone who’s very passionate about life, maalaga, and understanding.” So get in line, ladies.
“Idol ko ‘yan, eh,” Alden said about the veteran Kapamilya actor, sharing that he was one of the people he talked to about doing a movie with Star Cinema. “[He’s] very supportive… Sabi niya, as long as masaya ka, you do it.”
When asked by Dr. Belo whether he’ll choose gaming over having a girlfriend, Alden said he’d prioritize his girlfriend. Now you know!
He’s said goodbye to shopping a long time ago. “I don’t find happiness anymore when I get material things… I just save the money for a rainy day.” Dr. Belo echoed and shared that one of the things a lot of people realized during the quarantine is finding out what truly matters: love, family, and health.
“For me, an award is an affirmation that you’ve done and delivered your part in a certain project… you’ve exceeded the expectations of the people watching it,” Alden shared, adding that he’s always wanted to go international as an actor.
Going to Church: Love
…however, they both admitted that it’s so hard to physically go to church right now, so they’re going to church via Zoom during the lockdown.
“Especially ‘pag bagong init,” Alden said, then immediately took a huge bite out of the ensaymada. Same energy, TBH.
Brazo de Mercedes: Love
*bite with dance*
After eating some carbonara, Alden shared that while shooting Imagine You & Me with Maine, they used to go to a restaurant in Italy (almost every day!) where he had the best carbonara ever.
