Eat Bulaga Dabarkads Maine Mendoza looked back on the audition she did for the ABS-CBN reality show Pinoy Big Brother.

Maine said in a recent interview with ABS-CBN News that in the past, she was invited to audition and become Kuya’s housemate.

“Naisipan ko lang mag-audition, may nagsabi sa akin, may nag-invite kung gusto ko bang mag-audition for PBB. Ako naman, even before, honest naman ako na gusto ko talagang makasali ng PBB. So nakita rin na baka eto na rin yung chance. So yun na nga yung chance, pero hindi pa yon yung tamang panahon,” said the GMA-7 talent.

Maine tried out for PBB: 737, the 2015 edition wherein Miho Nishida and Jimboy Martin were declared as winners.

"Nagsimula ako nun ng alas-sais nang umaga hanggang ala-una nang umaga. Pero umuwi ako ng sad. Pero okay lang masaya yung experience," Maine recalled.

The audition clip of Mendoza was released in 2018 by Lauren Dyogi, who used to be the business unit head of Pinoy Big Brother. He was promoted as ABS-CBN's TV Production head in 2013.

Dyogi admitted, “It was a bad call on my part” for not seeing the potential in the actress during her audition."

Months after her failed PBB audition, Maine was introduced as Yaya Dub on the GMA-7 noontime show Eat Bulaga.

In July 2015, she became the other half of the phenomenal AlDub love team with Alden Richards.

Maine is currently seen on the big screen as the leading lady of ABS-CBN actor Carlo Aquino in the romance drama film Isa Pa With Feelings.
