Robi Domingo and Maiqui Pineda credited the Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual for being the "reason" they met years ago.
On the host's latest vlog where Maiqui was his "very special guest," the couple played the famous "Jojowain or Totropahin" challenge where Piolo was part of the list.
Maiqui immediately answered "Jojowain," because she is admittedly a huge fan of the actor.
The "Game Ka Na Ba?" host then went on to share the story of how Papa P played a huge role in how they met.
“There's a funny story kung bakit kami nagkakilala. It's because of that guy,” Robi said.
“We owe Piolo everything," Maiqui supported.
Robi said that it happened during an event years ago. He planned on bailing out, but Piolo stopped him from leaving.
“Kakatapos lang ng ABS-CBN Christmas Special nun. Every year naman, nag-aattend ako ng after party. Pero noong year na 'yun, sabi ko, 'Pagod na 'ko, ayoko na.' But then again, this guy (Piolo) called and said, 'Bro, nasaan ka na?'” he recalled.
“Sabi ko, 'Papa P, ayoko na, pagod na 'ko.' Sabi niya, 'Mahiya ka naman. Isipin mo na lang 'yung oras na binigay sa'yo, 'yung tiwalang binigay sa'yo ng ABS-CBN at 'yun na 'yung paraan para magpasalamat ka.' After that, 'yun, umakyat ako.”
Meanwhile, Maiqui said that she didn't know anyone from the event that time that's why she decided to approach Robi.
“So I was alone lang kasi. No, I wasn't alone, pero I didn't know anyone except Robi. Ateneo, you know, we're batchmates, but we're not naman friends. Like we just knew of each other. So I said hi to him,” she said.
And the rest, as they say, is history.
Now nearing their third anniversary, the couple then thanked Piolo for being the indirect reason why and how they met.
“In that event, I showed lots of gratitude. Doon nakita ko kung ano nga ba 'yung ibig sabihin ng Kapamilya, at nakita ko kung ano nga ba ang ibig sabihin ng pagmamahal,” Robi said.
Maiqui added, “Thank you, Piolo."
