Former Miss Universe Olivia Culpo trended on social media after she was announced as the newest host of the 71st Miss Universe Competition which will be held in New Orleans, Louisiana on Jan., 14 (Jan. 15, Manila time).

But netizens were cold over the hosting skills of Culpo who replaced Steve Harvey after five years. The other main host is Jeannie Mai Jenkins. Some comments:

"A main male host would be better"

"Maybe, Olivia is more appetizing to US market in terms of sponsorship/ ads, which is a bigger one than other parts of the world."

"Please change Olivia culpo as a main host"

"Olivia is so boring, she don't scream, she are not charisma"

"No. We already witness how bad of a host Olivia Culpo is. It should be Catriona Gray and Jeannie Jenkins as a main hosts."

Culpo thanked the Miss Universe Organization for choosing her as one of the hosts of the prestigious competition.

“This organization had such an impact on my life and I’m so thankful for the experiences I had with my Miss Universe family. I have so much respect for the continuous evolution of the Miss Universe Organization, including the new female ownership for the first time in the company’s history," Culpo said.
