Maine Mendoza, Alden Richards, and Nadine Lustre might have lost in reality shows but they still made it big in showbiz.

Did you know that Maine Mendoza first tried to join a reality show of ABS-CBN before becoming one of Eat Bulaga's most bankable hosts?

Eat Bulaga! is the longest-running noontime show aired in rival network GMA-7.

Just like Maine, her love team partner Alden Richards and ABS-CBN actress Nadine Lustre also tried their luck by joining reality shows.

Even though they did not win in a reality show, they eventually became bankable actors and actresses.

Indeed, timing is crucial in getting a stable career in show business. (Philippine Entertainment Portal) lists down 16 celebrities who failed to enter the final round of a reality search, but are now making a mark in showbiz.
