Who is Maymay Entrata?
Marydale Entrata, fondly called “Maymay,” was dubbed as the “Ms. Wacky Go Lucky ng Cagayan de Oro.” After the celebrity housemates accomplished six out of seven of their lucky tasks, they chose her to enter the house a day after the Celebrity finalists were revealed. She was the first teen to enter the house and was welcomed by the celebrity finalists as she was tasked to act in several difficult situations.
In her stay inside the house, she developed a tight friendship with second placer, Kisses, and was paired with Edward. Big Brother got fond of pranking, which was highlighted by her request for Enrique Gil to enter the house. In the Teen Edition, she was never nominated. At the end of her edition, she, Edward and Kisses was dubbed as the “3 Lucky Suns” and was joined by Yong eventually when they became part of the Dream Team.
Prior to PBB, Maymay Entrata is just a regular student in the Mindanao University of Science and Technology. During her audition, she said she’s a cross between Melai Cantiveros and Kim Chiu – two contestants who won the show in the past and eventually became big stars in the local scene.
Upon her entry into the house, she shared that she used to have only five pesos for her daily allowance, choosing to eat food instead of the convenience of transportation. She also said she wants to be an inspiration to everyone given the chance she becomes the Big Winner.
Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 is the longest edition of the show. Entrata, on her interview upon being proclaimed the Big Winner, said she is very thankful for the support her followers have given her and that she is grateful for them being part of making her dreams come true. She also advised everyone to never stop dreaming and in times of doubt and failure, never forget why and where you started. Finally, she remarked: “Huwag na huwag kayong matakot magpakatotoo lalo na kung alam ninyong tama kayo, dahil iyan ang magtutungo sa inyo sa inaasam ninyong tagumpay. Maraming-maraming salamat sa inyong lahat!”
