If you don’t know the name Xander Ford or have not yet heard of it, then you’re probably living under a rock – no offense. Xander Ford is the new onscreen name of Marlou Arizala, the former member of Hasht5. Nowadays, he’s gaining popularity because of his sudden reinvention which he has claimed was to boost his own self-esteem.
A certain Facebook user named Xian Mercado shared a very long post about his encounter with Xander Ford – before the fame and the publicity. According to him, Xander does not have any knowledge whatsoever that he was filmed or caught on camera. As of this writing, his post has gained 1,200 likes and different reactions, 806 shares on other netizens’ timelines, and around 4o comments.
Mercado added a disclaimer which states:
“ILL SAY THIS ONCE TO MAKE THINGS CLEAR. HINDI NYA ALAM NA VINIVIDEOHAN KO SYA DITO. I JUST TOOK THE OPPORTUNITY PARA VIDEOHAN SYA PARA MAPAKITA TO SAINYONG LAHAT. AYAW NYA KASI NG VINIVIDEOHAN SYA PAGDATING SA GANITONG BAGAY.”
He said that Xander Ford – before he became known as such – was thought to be “mayabang,” “pangit,” “papansin,” “masama (ang) ugali,” and “retokado,” among other things.
However, the two videos he has shared on his personal account allegedly proved that Xander Ford is anything but. The first video showed a caption that reads:
Mercado saw Xander Ford as he gave out several meals to street children posed outside a closed establishment. As of writing this, it has gained a whopping 114,000 views, 340 likes and reactions, and 105 shares on other netizens’ timelines.
Meanwhile, the second video featured Xander as he purchased meals from a local store. It was presumed that this was the store where he brought the meals to be given out to the street children he saw.
According to Mercado’s post:
“Di nyo sya kilala at di nyo alam ang pinag dadaanan nya. Sya yung tipo ng tao na uunahin ung mga taong mahal nya, mga kaibihan nya, pamilya nya at ang mga taong nangangailangan bago sarili nya. Napaka buting tao nyan.”

Watch the two videos he included on his post:
This is me secretly filming him. I was holding my phone from a low angle so that he wouldnt notice what I was doing. Magagalit kasi sya if nalaman nyang vinivideohan sya.
