Prior to his facial transformation, Xander expressed how incomplete he felt with his own body. He also shared all his experiences with bullies and critical people who always had something bad to say about his face.
Because of the criticisms, he decided to do the transformation which was shown at “Rated K.” After the show, Xander expected that people would finally start respecting him. However, his critics remained and found more reasons to degrade him.
This is when he decided to leave show business, even though being a celebrity was his dream. During an interview with a television show called “Pareng Partners,” Xander shared:
“Lagi ko naririnig sa tao is, ‘Ang b*bo mo naman. Mag-aral ka muna bago ka magpasikat,’ so nag-study ako tapos sinasabayan ko ng gym, work-out tapos dancing.”
