In 2016, during the Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7’s popularity, former housemates McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson had a ‘kilig’ chat with the King of Talk. Watch them recall their PBB days and rate each other in this throwback episode from Tonight with Boy Abunda (TWBA).
McCoy was vocal about his admiration for Elisse. He often said he likes to be paired with her, even before they became an official love team and eventually, a couple. For her part, Elisse was surprised to hear such comments because McCoy never talked about it while they were inside the PBB house.
Sometimes he was shy and sometimes extra sweet. But Elisse didn’t want to assume, “Ang iniisip ko po Tito Boy na ganun po talaga siya. Hindi ko po nilalagyan ng meaning.” She also thought she wasn’t his type. It turned out McCoy was just playing mysterious (or maybe ‘torpe,’ what do you think?)
Tito Boy recalled a separate interview where McCoy rated Elisse a 10 out of 10 “at kung may itatas pa, ‘yun na ‘yun.” Asked to do the same, Elisse also gave McCoy a perfect score, to which he reacted to, “Masaya kasi ang daming nagakagusto sa kanya, sa totoo lang. Ang daming nagagandahan sa kanya.”
Well, there may be a lot of admirers out there but in 2020, ‘may nanalo na!’ From reel to real and after a sad breakup, McLisse got back together. They marked their first anniversary as a couple last July with a parade of cozy beach photos on Instagram.
