Vanessa "Baninay" Bautista was an adult housemate in Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7's Adults Chapter.
Along with other 6 housemates, Baninay first entered on Week 16, while the final five teens were still inside the house.
Inside the house, Baninay is known for her strong Batangas accent, cheerful personality and sometimes her childish personality as well. She was the youngest among the adult housemates.
Baninay was friends with all housemates especially Aura Azarcon and Jerome Alecre. She was also friends with Cora Waddell but the latter was hurt when Baninay said something to Cora during a battle in the Double Trouble Week.
On Week 26, Baninay together with Wil Dasovich were fake evicted but it was later revealed that they will be staying in the White Room as a challenge for the 3rd Lucky House slot. They were later joined by Cora Waddell and Jerome Alecre. The Lucky 7 Teen Housemates will then vote for who they think deserved to be part of the Dream Team. Unfortunately for Baninay, no one voted for her and it was Jerome Alecre who got the 3rd Lucky House. Baninay together with Cora Waddell and Wil Dasovich left the house right after.
Baninay returned to the house, one day after to participate in the 4th Lucky Spot Competition where she will be competing against Cora Waddell for the 4th Lucky House slot but it was Cora who won the competition thus getting the last Lucky House slot for the Dream Team, evicting Baninay out once again.
