BTS KaladKaren as Star Patroller

Viewers of TV Patrol were amazed to see Karen Davila and her impersonator KaladKaren, shoulder to shoulder in last night’s episode, April 16, as the latter guested on the program to headline the Star Patrol segment. 

And who to better toss the segment than the OG? Karen was thrilled to introduce KaladKaren as the first transgender woman to win an acting award at the 2023 Summer Metro Manila Film Festival and, of course, as the night’s Star Patroller. The beautiful ladies were witty yet graceful in their banter. 


KaladKaren seemed at home. Check out her behind-the-scenes photos here:

At the end of the episode, she joined the anchors in their closing banter and was even asked to read Karen’s spiels in a similar tone. Her flawless reporting skill shouldn’t come as a surprise. KaladKaren, or Jervi Li in real life, graduated from the University of the Philippines with a degree in Broadcast Communication. She first went viral by means of her hilarious imitation of Karen’s reporting style.

By the looks of it, she impressed Karen, as well as Noli De Castro, Bernadette Sembrano, and Henry Omaga-Diaz. Kabayan even had hilarious remarks about her similarities with the original Karen.
