During the Grand Coronation day of GMA’s Eat Bulaga for Miss Millennial Philippines 2019, 45-year-old TV host Pia Guanio forgot to introduce ‘Pambansang Bae’ Alden Richards to present the second runner-up award together with Robert Joseph Lim Jr.
It was Paolo Ballesteros who was able to introduce Alden afterward.
Despite the incident, the Pambansang Bae kept his cool and didn’t look like he was affected. He kept smiling throughout his on air time on Eat Bulaga.
This incident earned mixed reactions from netizens and triggered the Pambansang Bae’s avid fans and with the use of #LabyuALDEN on Twitter.
