Karen Davila’s return to TV Patrol yesterday, October 11, became a trending topic on social media.

Why? A leaf landed on her face while she was doing her outro!

Since April 2021, theTV Patrol anchors have been doing their reporting duties separately, as they are stationed in different areas of ABS-CBN’s ELJ Building.

Karen’s post yesterday was at the entrance of the Dolphy Theater, an outdoor location. Henry Omaga Diaz was inside the TV Patrol studio, while Bernadette Sembrano was in another outdoor location inside the premises of ELJ Building.

Last night, typhoon Maring brought strong winds to Metro Manila.

As Henry was delivering his spiels, Karen was just smiling at the camera when a leaf landed on her face, almost distracting her.

KAREN’S TV PATROL COMEBACK

Karen’s stint in TV Patrol marked the first day of her comeback as a permanent fixture on ABS-CBN’s long-running flagship newscast.

Karen was TV Patrol's anchor from 2004 to 2010, until ABS-CBN decided to reformat the show. The reformat came in time for the show's 25th anniversary and the comeback of Noli de Castro, who, at that time, finished his term as the vice president of the Philippines.

Karen's comeback after 11 years was finalized on the heels of Noli's decision to leave TV Patrol and run for a senatorial post.

Aside from the leaf blooper, Karen also posted photos inside the TV Patrol studio with anchors Henry Omaga Diaz and Bernadette Sembrano, and showbiz anchor Gretchen Fullido.
