After being launched as one of the new celebrity endorsers of SM Surplus, Elisse Joson admitted she felt lucky and blessed to be chosen along with her love team partner McCoy De Leon. "Siyempre very overwhelmed ako sa mga nangyayari at sa mga blessings like endorsements. Nakakatuwa na kahit wala pa akong masyadong napapatunayan, they trust me to endorse their brands so I’m very thankful sa mga nagtitiwala sa akin,” she shared during the Surplus store opening in SM North Edsa in Quezon city.
The 20-year-old Star Magic artist said she and McCoy are currently enjoying their stint on the Primetime Bida series Ang Probinsyano. "I’m very blessed this year. Actually nagtu-tuloy tuloy na yung taping namin ngayon and sunod sunod nga yung mga eksena namin. Madami pa silang aabangan sa FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Yung characters namin well friends na sila. Hindi na magkaaway. Parang hindi nga siya nalalayo sa totoong buhay yung characters namin sa amin. Getting to know each other. Enjoying life (laughs),” she shared.
Elisse said that McCoy also recently gifted her with a Shih Tzu dog which she named Mac Mac. The two former PBB housemates admitted that they share “custody” of their new pet. “Bigay ni McCoy nung concert ng Hashtags nila. Very surprised ako. Actually matagal na din namin gustong kumuha ulit ng dog so nagulat ako na biglang merong pa-aso sa concert (laughs). Merong surprise. Okay naman si Mac Mac is very healthy, very heavy (laughs),” she said.
Even though they admit that they are just close friends for now, Elisse said McCoy really goes out of his way to make her feel special. The Hashtags member recently posted something on social media just to show his admiration for her. "Masaya ako. Kasi siyempre lahat ng hindi ko naranasan yun yung pinapakita sa akin ni McCoy. Kaya masaya ako,” she added.
