During the Miss Universe coronation, many netizens were quick to notice the interaction between Pauline and KC during the Q & A portion. Their small talk begins with KC asking, “Alright, our next contender is Miss Bohol. How are you doing, Pauline?”

Pauline replied, “I’m doing good. Thank you for asking. How about you?” KC looked surprised and responded saying, “Oh, no one ever asks me questions.” Pauline apologized and said, “Sorry, should I not have done that?”

The video showed Pauline smiling but quickly went serious when KC replied, “It’s okay, I’ll go ahead and read what you’re supposed to comment on.”

Netizens reacted online saying KC was rude to Pauline. A netizen said, “Just wow! Really? This is just so rude. Unprofessional!”

Another said, “Sobrang rude naman ni kc montero dito kay Miss Bohol!!!”

KC explained that he wasn’t being rude and that the video only showed a small part of their interaction. He tweeted, “Just a heads up, the exchange between me and Ms. Bohol was edited. The exchange was actually a couple of minutes more of us joking with each other. Unfortunately it was cut and edited for time.”

On Instagram, Pauline also defended the pageant host and said no harm was done. She wrote, “We had small talk on stage before the QnA which helped me take a breath and calm my nerves before answering the Question. That part was indeed cut short for airtime. Regardless, what he said in response to me asking how he was doing was just humor to me.”
