Who is Yaya Dub?
August 9, 2015
Yaya Dub Maine Mendoza
became an overnight celebrity thanks to her stint in Eat Bulaga
‘s segment, “Juan for All, All for Juan.” She was accidentally paired with established GMA Kapuso young star Alden Richards
and their loveteam known as “AlDub
” became phenomenal. The entire country is abuzz of the novelty, and I assume, also most Filipinos abroad, which numbers in the millions.
Yaya Dub is Maine Mendoza (Nicomaine Dei Capili Mendoza). She first gained fame in Youtube after her Dubsmash compilation videos hit millions of views.
Despite her moniker as “Yaya” (maid) Dub, Yaya Dub is well-educated and she also belongs to an affluent family in Santa Maria, Bulacan. Her family owns several gasoline stations. She studied in St. Paul College and DLSU’s College of St. Benilde. She even did her OJT (on-the-job training) in New York, USA.

This could be the reason she is getting sickly on the set of her “kalyeserye” as it is being held in mostly “poor neighborhoods” of the country due to the charitable nature of the segment. Last Saturday, she fainted on cam and live on air, which many thought were still part of the show. Yaya Dub posted in Twitter from her hospital bed that the incident was not part of the show and she really fainted. Her fainting though still added spice to the now very popular kalyeserye.

Eat Bulaga and GMA Network were taken by surprise at the immense popularity that the AlDub loveteam has gained. There are now reports that Alden Richards and Yaya Dub are going to star in a movie together under APT Entertainment, a TV and film production company owned by TAPE Inc., producer of Eat Bulaga.
Jessica Soho was the first to interview and do a feature on Yaya Dub. Watch and hear how Yaya Dub’s voice really is below:
