13 StarStruck Survivors Who Switched Networks From GMA-7 To ABS-CBN For The Most Controversial Reasons!


The GMA reality TV talent search show “StarStruck” debuted in 2003. Showbiz hopefuls would often line up for its auditions, in the hopes that they could become the next big stars. Winners of this kind of competition are often expected to stay in their home network as a way to build their career and as a sign of loyalty to the network that gave them their big break. 

However, for these “StarStruck” alumni, that’s just not the case. Here are some “StarStruck” grads who decided to transfer to the Kapamilya network:

1. Aljur Abrenica – He is the winner of the fourth season of “StarStruck.” He was given a number of lead roles on the Kapuso network. He is known for being paired with Kris Bernal who was also a fellow “StarStruck” alum. Aljur recently moved to ABS-CBN.
