Based on the article from PEP, Henyo Master Joey de Leon was the one gave the opportunity to Jose Manalo to be a StarStruck judge.
Joey had been a judge or council member of the talent search for Season 1, 2, 3, and 6. He is supposed to be a judge also in the 7th season of the reality show.
However, he can no longer do the upcoming season so he chose Jose to replace him.
According to the article, this will be a big challenge to the comedian-host, especially that he must prove that Joey did the right decision to give the opportunity to him.
Jose will join veteran actress Cherie Gil and primetime actress/fashion icon Heart Evangelista as StarStruck council members.
At the time of writing, the Kapuso network has not introduced yet who are the aspiring stars for Season 7. The reality talent search is expected to air next month, based on the report.
