Yaya Dub as Ginebra muse? "Why not?" says Chua

By Ivan Saldajeno

MANILA--With the sudden rise to popularity of Dubsmash sensation Maine Mendoza thanks to her new stint as host of Eat Bulaga, Ginebra fans and even the supporters of the other PBA clubs have begun calling out the team management to make Mendoza the muse of the Gin Kings for the new season.

Team Governor Alfrancis Chua heeded to the call.

Ginebra's former mentor and now club executive tweeted on Saturday that he liked the idea of bringing in the GMA comedienne known to many as Yaya Dub as its muse.

"Mga kabarangay, susubukan natin ibigay ang idea sa marketing para makuha natin si Yaya Dub [Mendoza] para muse ng Ginebra," Chua said on his Twitter.

Once approved by the marketing division, Mendoza will become the latest lady to join the Gin Kings for the PBA season opening. For the 2015-16 season, the ceremonies will take place on Oct. 18.

Mendoza's star status shone even brighter after her "long-distance" loveteam segment with celebrity crush Alden Richards has become the most-watched segment of Eat Bulaga, stretching its dominance over rival program Showtime.
