THE search is over: StarStruck Season 7 names its Ultimate Male and Female Survivors, Kim De Leon and Shayne Sava.
The two were proclaimed as winners during The Final Judgment held at GMA Network studios last September 15, besting First Prince Allen Ansay and First Princess Lexi Gonzales.
Kim, 19, from Batangas shared his gratefulness to God and the Network for allowing him to pursue his dream, “Hanggang ngayon parang naririnig ko pa rin nung inaannounce ‘yung pangalan ko. Masayang-masaya po ako at nagpapasalamat ako sa Diyos dahil tinupad niya ang pangarap ko, pati po sa GMA at sa StarStruck.”
Likewise, 17-year-old Shayne from Rizal offered her victory to everyone who helped her throughout the competition. “Parang nasa alapaap pa rin po ako, hindi ako makapaniwala na ako ‘yung Ultimate Female Survivor. Sobrang saya, sobrang blessed, sobrang thankful ko po talaga sa lahat ng tumulong sa akin, sa pamilya ko at sa mga kaibigan ko. Kung wala po sila, wala ako dito ngayon at para po sa kanila ito,” she shared.
Kim and Shayne each received one million pesos in cash, a house and lot, and a GMA-7 management contract worth five-million pesos.
Asia’s Multi-media Star Alden Richards performed special numbers with the Final Survivors, while internationally-renowned Kapuso singer Aicelle Santos sang StarStruck 7’s Journey Song, ‘Fight For You’. The star-studded Final Judgment night was complete with special appearances of StarStruck graduates from earlier seasons and this season’s Avengers in a dance number with StarStruck Insider Kyline Alcantara. The Final 4’s celebrity mentors – Yasmien Kurdi, Katrina Halili, Kris Bernal, and Mark Herras – were present to show their support. The StarStruck council – Ms. Cherie Gil, Heart Evangelista, Jose Manalo – all gave encouraging words to the two winners.
StarStruck Season 7 is hosted by Ultimate Star and StarStruck Season 1 Ultimate Female Survivor Jennylyn Mercado and Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes.
