When they finally moved, the first year was the hardest. She didn't know how to speak Tagalog, she didn't know anyone and worst of all, there were no sports.She studied in BHC Educational Institution Inc. in La Union. She was made fun of by her classmates because she looked different. She didn't know this though, because she couldn't understand them. She cried because in Washington she was a good student and here she failed in her Filipino and Social Studies subjects. Being the strong person that she always was, she didn’t give up and studied Tagalog with the help of her mom and cousins.

Stef was said to be the controversial for two reasons: 1) her competitive attitude. 2) when she turned down StarStruck's very First Prince, Rainier Castillo on live television when they were both guests of the talk show, SiS. She had a good chance of getting the title Ultimate Sweetheart because of her talent and it was proven when she was chosen Best Actress on a kissflick episode. She was picked by dance guru, Douglas Nieras, to be the best dancer among the girls of her batch which was also won by Sheena Halili who was the ex-girlfriend of Rainier Castillo. As for singing, there was tough competition between her and co-survivor, Rich Asuncion. But right after the "Sis-Incident", Rainier Castillo fans boy-cotted Stef Prescott over the Internet. After the contest, it was rumored that the 2 were dating. She was eliminated on March 11, 2007 along with Paulo Avelino. Her very first regular show after StarStruck, was the youth-oriented show entitled, Boys Nxt Door.
