Maine Mendoza: A Breakout Star Worth $3 Million
If you’re a social media savvy in the Philippines, you might have come across Maine Mendoza‘s Dubsmash videos that made her an instant viral sensation. Fast-track to now, and Mendoza is now not just a social media phenomenon but also a successful actress, host, and author with a net worth of $3 million.
What is Maine Mendoza Known For?
At just 26 years old, Maine Mendoza’s career has skyrocketed, largely thanks to Eat Bulaga. She gained popularity after her Dubsmash videos got noticed, also known as Yaya Dub, on the show’s “Kalyeserye” segment in 2015. Alongside her partner Alden Richards, they captured the hearts of the Filipino people with their comic yet warm on-screen performance.
Maine Mendoza’s breakthrough came about when she became the very first Philippine personality to gather one million followers within less than a month after being at the forefront of Eat Bulaga’s “Kalyeserye”, and though challenging and high-pressure to come to talent discovery instantly really made her career explode. Her online following played as one of her significant strengths contributing to giving her star image and bolstering engagement.
Aside from her hosting stint, Mendoza displayed versatility in acting by delving into movies and television dramas. She starred in high-grossing romance-comedy films like “My Bebe Love” in 2015 and “Imagine You & Me” in 2016. Her depiction in the movie earned her the Best Supporting Actress award at the Metro Manila Film Festival in 2017. Maine also created some noise for her online-series called “Hayop Ka!” where she played the role of Nimfa.
Early Life and Education
Maine Mendoza was born on March 3, 1995, in Santa Maria, Bulacan, Philippines. After completing her secondary education at St. Paul College of Bocaue in Bulacan, she enrolled in De La Salle–College of Saint Benilde to pursue a degree in Culinary Arts.
During her college life, Mendoza came across Dubsmash, an app that blends selfies with classic phrases or songs. Maine became obsessed with the application, and decided to upload her videos on Facebook, where her slew of supporters soon took notice.
In 2015, Mendoza began co-hosting Eat Bulaga with Alden Richards, and by the end of that year, the two had developed a relationship that fans followed worldwide. In the same year, Maine was hailed as the “Phenomenal Star of Filipino Cinema” due to her achievements in her breakthrough movie and quality performance in presenting. This is also the year that marked the heightening of the Yokoserye feud between the show’s characters Yaya Dub and Lola Nidora played by Wally Bayola that Maine helped make an immense amount of success from the get-go.
Mendoza continued to earn roles during and after Yokoserian. Paramount among them was the role of Chef Elize in Princess in the Palace—a classic role that allowed Mendoza to excel in television acting skills. Mendoza has seen promotions increase beyond her contracts with modeling and commercial endorsements, online shows like Cyberplayground and his Twitter account.
Maine Mendoza’s stardom is fixated on becoming a household name in show business. Her discography speaks for itself. She became one of Pepsi Philippines’ brand ambassadors in 2019, a Knorr’s Kitchen Creation in 2017, Front Row International’s product influencer in 2018, and many more to mention. You could say that Mendoza is one of today’s richest endorsers.
While her movies have been box office successes that won people’s hearts, her viewers’ figures on cable and online have clearly shown that the co-host has transitioned favorably and efficiently from being a social-media sensation to a mainstream star.
Given that she’s only in her mid-twenties, Maine Mendoza, aka “The Dubsmash Queen” from the Philippines, has been destined for greatness. Today, you can add author, host, actress, and brand ambassador to her resume. But despite all this success, Mendoza isn’t satisfied just yet. She still works hard with determination, consistently rising to the challenges of a dynamic industry. We’re excited to see what she will do next when going mainstream and if she plans her next steps right who knows she might make a new record with her popularity even going further within the rest of Asia.
