Post StarStruckEdit

Shortly after the contest, Santos underwent various workshops and TV guestings in 2004 while waiting for his break. In 2008, he hired Joe Barrameda to co-manage his showbiz career with GMA Artist Center.

Since then he has frequently played supporting and comedic roles in television dramas, including roles in Basahang Ginto, My Husband's Lover, Ismol Family, Poor Señorita, and Kambal Karibal.

In 2013, he top billed his first gay role in My Husband's Lover as Danny, the bestfriend of Eric (Dennis Trillo); where he got a lot of positive feedback from the fans of the show.[2]

In 2018, he took a private pilot course at Omni Aviation for his licensure as a pilot. Later that month, he managed to ace his two major exams, namely his 350 item DepEd exam and his 625 item Private Pilot exams, that simultaneously scheduled in the same week. On the 27th of March, he announced that he is now a licensed private pilot.[3]

Same that year, Santos had his guest appearance in Kambal Karibal as Xander Liwanag, a key character to the show with black magic powers such as soul-switching and exorcism.
