Wendy Valdez was a finalist on Pinoy Big Brother 2.
She was well known for her fussiness and cattiness inside the house who often overreacted to simple things, cried alot, and being clingy to Bruce who happened to be her crush. She was also known for her loud and somewhat dumb moments.
As a result, she emerged as one of the most, if not the most hated housemate ever in Pinoy Big Brother history. Yet, despite of that, she also remained to be one of the most memorable housemate ever to enter.
Inside the house, she considered Saicy Aguila as her closest ally, as well as Bruce Quebral who she considered as the one who understands her. When Bruce left the house for Slovenia, she was devastated.
Wendy got evicted on Week 10 but after two weeks, she returned to the house for the "Back to the House" twist with other three evicted housemates Kian Kazemi, Jasmin Engracia and Zeke Dimaguila. They stayed in the Secret Room which was first used by the fake ill housemates who pretended to have caught "Robert's Disease" on Week 5. At the end of the week, Wendy and Kian were the ones who were able to live back to the house and compete again as a housemate.
When she went out to the stage with her family waiting for her, the whole coliseum was filled with loud boos. She was the first ever housemate to receive loud boos during the Finale Night. and it immediately became one of the most memorable moments in Philippine TV history.
Wendy quickly responded the audience with the speech; "Please let me speak first even just for a minute. I just don't want my family to be hurt. If it's only myself I can handle it, it's fine. Uhm, even if you all want to burn me alive right now, the fact that I'm here.. in Big Four, God has a reason for it and God bless you all, thank you to all of you. Even if you're so annoyed with me, everytime you say my name, you're going to notice me. So thank you!"
It wasn't the first time she got boos, when Bodie got evicted two days before the Big Night, the audience in the Eviction Hall gave her boos and shouted Wendy get out!" Bodie happened to be among Wendy's closest friends in the house.
