Even though most of the celebrities look like they are the perfect fit for the industry today, did you know that some of them failed to enter the showbusiness before? Take a look at these six famous celebs who failed to make the cut in famous TV competitions.
1. Maine Mendoza
Just recently, Pinoy Big Brother Lauren Dyogi revealed that th
e Dubsmash queen, Maine Mendoza was one of the famous personalities he missed. Maine actually auditioned for the reality show back in 2015 but was turned down by the director. Weirdly enough, it was the same year she booked a spot on “Eat Bulaga”. Just imagine if she made it in PBB, will she be enjoying the same stardom?
2. Nadine Lustre
Nadine is also one of the actresses Lauren missed out on. Back in 2010, she auditioned for the “Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash”, where her now beau, James Reid was named Big Winner. Coincidence? I don’t think so.

3. Alden Richards
Out of all the throwback this list has to offer, Alden Richards’ is arguably the cutest. The then 17-year-old Alden actually auditioned in “Starstruck” back in 2009 but after securing a spot in the top 60, his journey ended. A year after, Alden also tried his luck in “PBB: Teen Clash”, where he obviously didn’t make it.
Dear ABS-CBN, are you regretting your decisions now?
4. Jerome Ponce
Jerome is the fourth actor in our list who auditioned in PBB. Also, in the year 2010, Jerome tried his luck in the reality TV show. Two years after, he auditioned again. Needless to say, he didn’t make both cuts.
5. Kris Bernal
Following the PBB audition trend on this list, Kapuso actress winner Kris Bernal also auditioned for the show before joining and eventually winning in GMA’s “Starstruck”.
6. Moira dela Torre
The now most sought-after singer, Moira dela Torre actually joined “The Voice PH” back in 2013. But sadly then, the singer didn’t make it through the battle rounds.
This just goes to show that everything has its own perfect timing.
