Yassi Pressman just secured her spot in the grand finals of the ongoing season of ''Pinoy Big Brother'' — but almost immediately, she decided to give it up. 

The actress, who is currently part of the primetime series "Ang Probinsyano," surrendered her spot to fellow celebrity housemate Elisse Joson. Both competed on Tuesday for the last spot. 

It was Pressman's team who came out on top, dashing Joson's dreams of becoming this season's grand winner. Her team finished the given challenge with only a 23-second lead over Joson's. 

This meant that Joson will join celebrity finalists Jinri Park and Hashtags members Nikko Natividad and Mccoy de Leon, along with those from the teen and adult editions. 

Pressman did not explicitly say the reason for her decision, but teased that she was "needed" outside the house. She thanked the show for opening opportunities for her following her stint.
