After completing his filming for The Best Things in Life, Tan met Chen Hanwei, whom he had collaborated with in the drama series. Chen saw potential in Tan's acting ability and encouraged him to participate in the tenth season of Star Search. He eventually auditioned for the show and was put through to the quarter-final as one of the top 20 contestants of the season. During the quarter-final, he impressed the judges and was announced as one of the top 3 males of the round. During the semi-final, he impressed the judges once again and was put through to the grand final.

Prior to the grand final, he was widely regarded as the frontrunner of the competition and was predicted by the public as the eventual winner. However, he surprised everyone by finishing the competition in fourth place, losing the winner title to Jeffrey Xu. Although he did not win the competition, he was offered a two-year contract by MediaCorp together with Xu, Adeline Lim, Sora Ma, James Seah, and Darryl Yong.
