We Will Survive supporting cast member McCoy De Leon is currently in Vietnam as one of the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7.
It can be recalled that McCoy was able to tape his last sequences for the teleserye before he went to Vietnam last Monday, July 4.
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked his co-stars Pokwang and Melai Cantiveros to give him messages during his stay in the Big Brother Vietnam house.
Pokwang was the first to answer while speaking a pretend-Chinese language. She then turned serious and said, "McCoy, kung nasaan ka man, galingan mo 'yan.
"At wala naman akong karapatang magbigay diyan di ko naman naranasan pumasok sa bahay ni Kuya, ano ang ma-a-advice mo sa kanya?"
She then passed to microphone to Melai, who won Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up in 2010.
The 28-year-old comedienne said during the June 11 finale press conference of We Will Survive, "McCoy, kaya mo 'yan.
"Ang masasabi ko lang sa 'yo, i-enjoy mo lang yung PBB mo diyan, pag-stay.
"Isipin mo na meron kang free time, kasi dito sa show business puyat tayo ng puyat."
She then added with a laugh, "Isipin mo, meron kang retreat diyan sa PBB kasi lagi ko nga sinasabi, libre ang kuryente, libre ang pagkain, libre ang tubig, ano pang i-istress mo, i-enjoy mo lang!
"Tapos ipakita mo lang yung totoong ikaw na mabait ka, baka ikaw pa ang maging Big Winner!"
Tagged as the Inday Kengkay of GenSan, Melai was one of the most popular housemates of the third season of PBB, which aired from 2009 to 2010.
Viewers were able to witness her love story with now-husband Jason Francisco.
Aside from being part of It's Showtime's male dance group #Hashtags, McCoy also played the role of Ralph in We Will Survive, where he is paired with former PBB: All-In housemate Maris Racal.
Last July 2, it was announced on It's Showtime that McCoy will be the first celebrity housemate to enter the Big Brother house, along with co-Hashtags member Nikko Natividad. They are considered as two-in-one housemates.
PBB Lucky Season 7 aired its pilot episode last July 11. During the first episode, it was hinted that there is a brewing love team between McCoy and housemate Elisse Joson.
