Maine shared with PUSH her experience auditioning for the show.

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,” she said.

[“I thought about auditioning, and someone told me and invited me to audition for PBB. Even before, I was honest about wanting to join PBB. And I thought that perhaps this was my chance. And it really was my chance, but it wasn’t the right time.”]

Nagsimula ako no’n ng alas-sais nang umaga hanggang ala-una nang umaga. Pero umuwi ako ng sad. Pero okay lang, masaya yung experience,” she continued.

[“I started at 6 in the morning until 1 in the morning. But I went home sad. But it’s okay, it was a fun experience.”]

Maine revealed that this took place a month before she debuted as Yaya Dub in GMA Network noontime program Eat Bulaga in 2015.
