It looks like Marlou Arizala is back to where he started.

Stripped of his former screen identity, Arizala released a video on Tuesday teasing what appeared to be his return to his former group.

"Hasht5ive is back, the new and original member, are you ready guys?" Arizala said in the caption.

He also changed his name on his Facebook account to "Xander Arizala."

Arizala first made headlines in 2015 when social media posts featuring him and fellow Hasht5 members went viral.

After leaving the group, he stole the spotlight after undergoing cosmetic surgery in October 2017.

But in April, Star Image Artist Management announced it decided to “take back” the name Xander Ford from Arizala, citing unprofessional behavior.

Star Image announced it is now looking for the next person “bearing the good qualities” of a good role model who will carry the Xander Ford name.
