As a longtime fan of Starstruck, I have had my fair share of bets. In fact, there are some seasons that I honestly did not root for anybody. What can I say, I have high standards?
That was not the case in Season 7. I was utterly starstrucked when I saw Lexi Gonzales. I mean how can one lady be this stunning and talented? And she is just starting her career! I was simply blown away by her talent, performance, charm and overall personality.
Although she did not win the Ultimate Female Survivor award, she has been making her own steps as she progress in the entertainment business. I have been enjoying watching her shows and I am proud to say that people are finally recognizing her talents at last! Here are the things you may not know about Lexi Gonzales.
