In 2007, Jesi Corcuera joined GMA's reality talent show, StarStruck. At that time, Jesi—who was openly lesbian—got paired off with fellow StarStruck contestant Paulo Avelino. StarStruck participants, after all, were traditionally paired off as possible "love teams."

Now, Jesi—who now identifies as a transgender man—is among the latest housemates of ABS-CBN's Pinoy Big Brother. He's dubbed as the "Transman of the House ng Cavite."
