The seven male hopefuls who made it to the list are: Abdul Rahman, Karl Aquino, Kim de Leon, Gelo Alagban, Jeremy Sabido, Jerick Dolormente, and Allen Ansay.
The Final 14 are competing to become StarStruck 7's Ultimate Male and Female Survivors.
Senior program manager Enri Calaycay said in an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during StarStruck's June 10 press conference that their goal this season is to look for a "total media star" among its ultimate survivors.
"More than just being able to act or perform on TV or in the movies, kaya mo rin tumawid sa ibang platforms because yun na ang panahon natin ngayon.
"Like what Dingdong Dantes also said, this time kasi, ang hinahanap namin, yung total media star.
"Kapag artista ka ngayon, hindi puwedeng sa TV at sa movie ka lang, e, di ba? Meron nang bagong platform, yung online. Alam mo rin how to communicate with your fans, di ba?
"At saka alam mo rin yung material na dapat i-post online para tuluy-tuloy lang yung susubaybayan ka ng fans mo. So yun din yung titingnan namin na aspect sa kanila."
StarStruck's seventh season is hosted by Dingdong Dantes and Jennylyn Mercado, with Kyline Alcantara as the host of StarStruck's online show, Inside StarStruck.
The Final 14 finalists are also expected to face the Philippine media in the coming weeks.
