GMA-7 has revealed a major twist during the live episode of StarStruck VI.
During the pilot week of the artista search, the identities of the Final 14 were revealed to viewers.
The Top 35 went through four stages of testing: the talent showcase, the workshop, the screen test, and the director’s night.
The StarStruck hopefuls passed through "The Door" wherein they heard either one of three things:
1) “Congratulations” for those who made it to the next round
2) "Thank You” for those who did not
3) “Result will be announced on the live broadcast. Until then, good luck!”
Earlier tonight, September 11, the live broadcast took place where viewers got to see the two batch of shortlisted contestants.
Two contestants were chosen to complete the Final 14: Liezel Lopez of Olongapo and Joemarie Nielsen of Tarlac.
StarStruck VI host Dingdong Dantes explained, "Ngayong gabi, bubwagin na namin ang pagtawag sa inyo bilang Final 14.
"Instead, you will be called Dream 14.
"Bakit? Dahil hindi pa tapos ang laban. [cheers]"
There was another group of 14 contestants who were told that their fates would be revealed during the live broadcast.
It was then announced that this second group will still be part of StarStruck Season 6 as the Believe 14.
"Ang natitirang grupo na hindi namin tinawag ngayong gabi, your journey continues as Believe 14.
"Mula ngayong gabi, it is Dream 14 versus Believe 14.
"Sa pamamagitan ng pinagsamang boto ng Council, text at online votes, pinaglalabanan niyo ang pagiging totoong StarStruck Survivor."
