Valdez grew up in Navotas. Valdez serves as her family’s breadwinner. She claims she is going to do everything she has to do to help her family out.

She was one of the original housemates to enter the Big Brother house of the second season and she was most regarded as the "Bad Girl" of the house. She was also popular for having a relationship with fellow housemate Bruce Quebral. Valdez proved that being the most-hated girl does not mean people will not vote for you. Though her negative image were what people thought would hurt her chances of winning, many people claim[who?] that her placing over fellow housemate and in-house nemesis Gee-Ann was brought about by the public's interest to see a real person.
