MANILA – Presenter Karen Davila literally turned “a new leaf” as she marked her return as a “TV Patrol” presenter on Monday.
During the flagship newscast’s closing segment, a leaf flew in Davila’s face, apparently due to the strong winds in the garden of the ABS-CBN compound she was animating from.
Davila appeared unfazed and continued to smile as her co-host Henry Omaga-Diaz thanked viewers for watching the show.
A Twitter user posted a video of the sheet hitting Davila’s face, with the caption: “Miss Karen Davila sana okay ka lang (hope you are doing well).”
The post has since garnered 42,000 likes and over 5,300 retweets.
On Tuesday, Davila quoted the post on Twitter, adding the caption: “This literally turns a new leaf.”
Davila also quoted-tweeted a similar post, jokingly writing, “Salamat sa dahon for the warm welcome (Thanks to the sheet for the warm welcome).”
The Leaf incident happened immediately after Davila expressed gratitude for her return from “TV Patrol”.
“His good ‘TV Patrol’ team, nagpapasalamat ako. It’s so nice to be back. I’m really grateful,” she said.
Davila’s return comes after the departure of Noli De Castro, who is aiming for a political return to the 2022 elections.
The last time Davila was the main presenter of “TV Patrol” was from 2004 to 2010.
In August, Davila also went viral on social media because of her reaction after finding out she had the same date of birth as singer Lyca Gairanod during an interview.
