Alden Richard’s ‘intense’ hosting stint during MUPH 2024 amuses netizens


Alden Richards became a trending topic among netizens due to his “energetic” announcement of the Miss Universe 2024 Top 20 and Top 5 candidates.

Bulacan bet Chelsea Manalo has been crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2024, standing out among 53 candidates from various towns and cities across the country.

The recently-held Miss Universe 2024 was highlighted not only by the beauty and intelligence of the contestants but also by the high energy of the hosts, most specifically by Kapuso heartthrob Alden Richards.

His intense energy when he announced the places of the candidates who successfully made it to the Top 20 of the pageant sparked hilarious reactions on social media.

Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa poked fun at the actor’s hosting stint with an iconic meme of Maja Salvador screaming with an on-screen caption “BAG-YOO!”

“Naririnig ko pa din. Eme!”, she wrote in her X post.

One netizen even jokingly asked, “Ba’t galit?” while an X user humorously ranked red angry emojis from numbers 1 to 20.

Some viewers expressed their surprise by making memes and hilarious remarks at Richards’ enthusiastic tone.

Meanwhile, others commended Alden’s “consistent” energy in announcing the contenders, describing it as an “effective” way to energize the crowd.

Alden is currently promoting his reunion film with Kapamilya actress Kathryn Bernardo in the sequel of their 2019 blockbuster hit, “Hello, Love, Goodbye.”
