Yassi Pressman has been added to the grand finalists of the ongoing season of "Pinoy Big Brother." 

The actress beat fellow shortlisted housemate Elisse Joson to claim the spot. She joins other celebrity finalists Jinri Park and Hashtags members Nikko Natividad and Mccoy de Leon. 

The reveal came two days after "Pinoy Big Brother" announced it will be adding three more grand finalists via a series of challenges. The show said it will pit two previously eliminated housemates from each of the editions (celebrity, teen, and adult) and the winners will be given a pass to the grand finals. 

For their challenge, Pressman and Joson had to guide some of the other finalists, who were blindfolded, toward seven scroll-like items littered around a small room, which contained broken tiara pieces. They then had to arrange the tiara in the fastest time possible. 

Pressman managed to do so in 13 minutes flat, 23 seconds faster than Joson's time, booking her ticket to the finals. 

The show teased that Pressman had something to reveal to Joson and speculation was she will give up her spot. The actress is currently part of the hit primetime series "Ang Probinsyano." 

A preview for the next episode seemed to downplay these suggestions, having showed Pressman joining the current finalists.
