StarStruck Season 6 Runners-up ELYSON DE DIOS and AYRA MARIANO are gearing up for a GMA Network show together this 2016!

Was able to talk to the two last week during their pampering session at Nail Axis Studio in Timog, Quezon City.

Both are very excited with the news and couldn’t wait to start with the tapings and everything. The project is still ‘CONFIDENTIAL’ so there’s no way knowing what their parts will be in the said show.


But it must be a good one, because AYRA MARIANO said that she was pulled out of the show “That’s My Amboy” for this one.  And the announcement said that Ayra and Elyson together as a pair specifically.

AYRA said that getting the First Princess title of StarStruck Season 6 does not necessarily translate to showbiz success already but as a stepping stone that will lead to her dreams.

“Kahit nanggaling ka sa isang magandang show, kung ikaw sa sarili mo, di ka passionate, di ka hardworking, di ka striving for success.. kung sa puso mo di mo gusto yun ginagawa mo, di magiging maganda ang resulta ng trabaho mo.. naka depende pa rin sa akin yun… kapag mahal mo ang isang bagay, mamahalin ka din nito.”


She looks up to past StarStruck winners like Jennylyn Mercado and Mark Herras and sees them as a source of inspiration.

“I look up to them, kasi pinaghirapan nila yun e.. gagayahin ko sila kung gaano sila ka hardworking..”

ELYSON said that he is now beginning to like the idea of him having a showbiz career.

The young Starstruck First Prince was very vocal about him not really wanting to join the entertainment industry in the past because he wanted to become a Basketball Player in the pro league someday.

However, after joining Starstruck, he now developed a certain fondness with the career that was given to him.


He is not abandoning his dream of becoming a pro Basketball player though and hopes to do both at the same time, if possible.

GMA Artist Canter has found four new young and ambitious artists under their wings through the recently concluded Starstruck Season 6 – I will definitely keep watch on their growth in the industry.


Congratulations Ayra and Elyson!
