That year, F4 of Taiwan was popular, thus the F4 hairdo was also popular among young guys. Rainier Castillo, who was supporting an F4 look, was a crowd drawer. For that reason, the rival network, also tried to produce the same personality in the person of Hero Angeles, who is now with GMA Network. (One of the castaways of Survivor 2 was Justine, a transexual. For that reason, PBB also included a transexual.)

Starstruck II was hosted by Dingdong Dantes and Jolina Magdangal. Nancy Castiliogne moved to ABS-CBN. It produced talents like LJ Reyes and Mike Tan. Dingdong and Jolina continued to host Starstruck III, which produced …
