Everyone with a TV knows who Maine Mendoza is. 

So when a girl from Pasig City who shares her name decided to visit "It's Showtime" on Wednesday, the hosts of the Kapamilya noontime show could not help but have some fun. 

Like with previous episodes, the opening segment had the hosts pluck random studio audience members to perform a short dance onstage in exchange for a cash prize. 

Billy Crawford found a girl named "Maine" and immediately quipped that they had a surprise visitor. 

"Welcome to 'It's Showtime,' Maine!" joked Vice Ganda. 

Referring to Mendoza's love team partner, Vhong Navarro then asked "Maine" in jest: "Kumustahin mo naman si Alden."

Mentioning names from their rival show, "Eat Bulaga," is nothing new 
for the hosts. 

Last November, it was Ryan Bang who was guilty of this as he had to address Vic Sotto after accidentally sharing details about their planned segments to his daughter, Danica Sotto-Pingris. 

"Bossing, kahit sabihin sa iyo ng anak mo, huwag mong gawin doon," he pleaded.
