Maine Mendoza better known as Yaya Dub is no doubt the hottest stuff in both mainstream and social media for the past several months now. The young internet sensation turned mainstream star has really become the best entertainment for most Filipinos this year.

The question is why? What is it the people love so much about her? The only answer we can think of is: character. Maine Mendoza's character is something new and completely out of the norm. I mean, look at her. She's undoubtedly pretty. Gorgeous even. If you would show Maine Mendoza's glamour shot to any guy who's got no knowledge to who she is or what she do, and ask those guys to rate her 1 to 10, most of us will easily give her the score of 9.

Yaya Dub Maine Mendoza abnormal

So that's an almost perfect score for just her face value, right? Then you go ahead and watch her Dubsmash and Vine videos to see her making funny faces and acting crazy then suddenly you'll start to feel infatuated. In other words you instantly develop a crush on her. That is because in the back of your mind you are thinking a gorgeous woman does not normally do that. It's somewhat rebellious and freaky but you like it. You damn like it.

In our culture, we are used to beautiful women being just beautiful, delicate and so precious. To put it simpler, "Pag maganda, maarte at ok lang mag-inarte." Maine is just the opposite but not directly opposite, she's more of a shoot off. She's like the anti-heroine of the Philippine entertainment and its female idols. She's not normal. Yes, I think Maine Mendoza a.k.a Yaya Dub is abnormal, but in a very good way.

In my opinion that's the 'Maine factor' of her becoming so dearly loved by many. She's physically attractive but she's irresistible because of her character. I can remember in her first TV interview she said that she is just being herself. Now you may have already heard that statement from a hundred other artists before her but I'm thinking it's not just as plain as that. I think what she really meant by that is she's just being her super crazy self. Her real crazy, out of the ordinary self.

Maine is not like the traditional idols that Filipinos had in the past. Well, we're in a new age now after all.

Speaking of traditional idols, one YouTuber suggests that the opposite of Maine Mendoza is Julia Barretto. Intrigaaaa tohl! Watch the video below.
