She had her first video published on Youtube on January 25, 2017.  It was a cover of Bruno Mars’ song “Versace on the Floor”.  Since then she had been regularly vlogging about her travels, daily activities, collabs, song and dance covers and most especially her first time experiences.

Baninay was able to buy lots, cars and a condominium unit from all her earnings.  In an ABS-CBN interview,  when asked about what her main investments are, she said, ” Personality, sipag  saka consistency.”  She further shared that despite the challenges on how to stay relevant, she was able to beat that by keeping her channel updated with her latest videos.

“Dapat po updated lagi lahat ng ginagawa mo.  May bago sa ‘yo.  May tinatry kang bagong things.”

Long before her journey in PBB,  Baninay had her own struggles in life.  She lost her mother when she was just 9 years old.  Her father once owned a cable company but unfortunately had to sell it to support her mother’s treatments.  She then lost her father when she was 20 years old.  To help her family and to pursue her schooling during college, she worked at a fast-food chain and finally auditioned at the Pinoy Bog Brother.

In her Youtube account, she describes herself as the “Bibang Betanguena of Batangas” and an accounting student who became a PBB housemate and now a vlogger.  Baninay has a cheerful, vibrant and funny personality which makes her Youtube videos appealing to her fans.

Her most popular video was a vlog entitled “Buwis Buhay LIP TATTOO! (Permanent LIPSTICK/ Make-Up)”  with 4.6M views.

She is currently in a relationship with her videographer who is also a blogger named Bont Bryan.

Wishing you’ll have more and more subscribers, Baninay, and thank you for inspiring us with your story.
