Do you remember when Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza made waves together with love team partner Alden Richards? She became famous for her Youtube channel. The comedienne showed her wits by uploading funny videos on that Social Media platform.
She didn’t turn back since then.
But what some may not know is that Maine is from a wealthy family. She graduated from the College of St. Benilde. It’s one of the elite school systems here in the Philippines. Unless you’re a scholar, you’ll need big funds to go to that school.
Her family is into businesses. One of their businesses is a gasoline station.
She’s under many product endorsement contracts and owns a McDo branch in Sta. Clara, Bulacan. You could say that she’s following the footsteps of her business-minded parents. And now she’s earning a lot, she is also putting her money to good use.
In September 2017, Stars News Asia reported that Maine’s net worth is around $12M. For that, she received a “Top Regional Individual Taxpayer” award by the Bureau of Internal Revenue or BIR.
Truly, Maine is keen on saving up, earning more, paying the BIR, and honing her craft.
Maine has also published a book. She is not only talented but got brains as well. There was a time when she would fight back to others who undermine people with depression. She’s not only an advocate but a frank and honest person too. Wow! At her young age, Maine has already accomplished a lot.
That’s no wonder many young people look up to her. She’s well-spoken and speaks what she feels.
Maine Mendoza is a regular TV host on the longest-running afternoon show, Eat Bulaga. She plays a role as Vic Sotto’s daughter once a week, though no current episodes have aired during this pandemic.
