The competition in the chaotic world of showbiz is really tough. The number of young aspirants year after year keeps on growing and it’s getting quite uncontrollable. Why? Let’s admit it, who doesn’t want to have a job that requires you to be famous, right?
However, being a popular artista requires ridiculous amount of hard work. Newbie celebrities must give their all before getting a spot in the competitive industry of local entertainment. Some started at a young age, others only joined full-time in their 20s or after finishing college, while several lucky personalities got their instant fame with the help of the internet—and Maine Mendoza is one of them.
The now 22-year-old actress falls under the category of ‘online sensations.’ They are these famous individuals who are totally out of the showbiz circle but with crazy number of followers online.
While other young celebs have a momentary popularity and got to enjoy the limelight success only once, Maine is different. No matter how many times the haters say that she’s a one-hit wonder, Maine proves that she can maintain her career in the long run. We’ve rounded up some of her milestones for those who are not yet convinced that she’s not just a temporary star. This list proves that she can prolong her existence in show business. Enjoy reading!
1. One of a kind Dudsmah videos
Maine became an online sensation in 2015 because of her hilarious Dubsmash videos with millions of views. She was just a simple girl who is a self-confessed introvert, but loves to express herself by creating funny videos.
2. The girl behind the world’s most famous nanny
Since she technically has a background in entertaining people effortlessly, she auditioned in Eat Bulaga! and immediately got the role of ‘Yaya Dub.’ Maine’s wise decision in joining an established and credible noontime show in the biz changed her entire life.
3. Capturing the heart of Alden Richards
We all know this milestone in her life. Maine meeting Alden Richards made her career fly and even more colorful. Who would’ve thought that a starting actress who plays the role of a nanny would actually meet her prince charming who will make her dreams come true? Feels like a real-life fairly tale!

Yup, this happened. Sa Tamang Panahon concert of Eat Bulaga! gathered all Filipinos in one arena, and it was because of Maine and Alden.
5. Two movie projects agad-agad
If you’re a one-hit wonder, no management will take a risk in giving you big screen projects. Maine’s two consecutive movies My Bebe Love and Imagine You and Me are proofs she’s a trust-worthy talent her regardless of her not having a background in acting.
