Crisha Uy, 23, a beauty vlogger, commercial model, and the love of Joem Bascon.

It's a marvel how actor Joem Bascon has kept his dynamite of a girlfriend Crisha Uy hidden in plain sight for six years.

A model in the stable of Jonas Gaffud's Mercator, she also has done bit roles in a couple of ABS-CBN shows.

She guested in some scenes of Oh My G!, a comedy drama series starring Janella Salvador and Marlo Mortel.

In Book 1 of Doble Kara, she played a friend of Julia Montes and Edgar Allan Guzman.

"After nun, di na nasundan. Siguro 'di lang meant to be," Crisha told (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in an exclusive interview via Viber.

Does she want to become an artista?

Her frank reply, "Audition ako ng audition, wala. Hindi lang meant to be."

Between the two of them, Joem may have high showbiz profile, but on YouTube, Crisha is the star and her boyfriend mere extra.

Her hilarious yet super kilig beauty vlog uploaded on May 4, 2017, has gone viral on Facebook and garnered a total of 1,542,510 views at press time.

Meanwhile, her very first video with Joem titled "My Boyfriend Does My Makeup" challenge was uploaded seven months ago.

She narrated, "Sabi ko, 'Lablab, gawa tayo video, ha?'

"Sabi niya, 'O, sige na nga.' Yun, di ko na siya na-brief kung anong gawin.

"Basta on ko na lang yung video camera."

They have been doing videos together since them, most of which are unplanned and "trip lang."

Crisha added, "I don't edit out our mistakes... I think mas okay siya sa videos para makita nila yung totoong kami."
