The North has been erased from the StarStruck map with the elimination of Paulo Avelino and Stef Prescott.
Hint that Paulo wasn’t going to be in the Final 6: StarStruck did not bring the Danger 8 to Baguio. Plus, Paulo lost hometown votes partly because of his stance as regards his ethnicity and GMA’s own fault of making fun of Igorots.
As for Stef, mere count of TXT votes does not show presence of fandom.
While it’s not likely that the Survivors from the South will get any of the Ultimate titles, their presence in the Final 6 is a way of saying that GMA loves the Visayas market more for this year.
