Paulo Avelino surprised and amused viewers at the recently-concluded Binibining Pilipinas 2017 grand coronation night at the SMART Araneta Coliseum on Sunday, April 30, when he appeared as one of the judges for the pageant.
Netizens were quick to react on their Twitter feeds.
The ABS-CBN actor became a trending topic on Twitter with 9,000 tweets mentioning him.

During the highly-anticipated Q&A portion, each judge was given a chance to ask a candidate a question and Paulo got to ask a question twice.
From here, a series of the night's best memes emerged.

Hosts: Your question will be coming from Mr. Paulo Avelino.— Rachel Jade ? (@RJ_delacruz) April 30, 2017
Me: YES, I DO! I WILL MARRY YOU!#BinibiningPilipinas2017
Paulo's first question was directed to Binibini No. 20 Christa Borja.
He asked Christa, "What kind of day would you best describe your life?"
Twitter had a stream of answers of their own to this question:
Paulo Avelino: what's the best day of your life?— Mary Chesca Gwen ? (@mcgrizzi) April 30, 2017
Me: The best day of my life is the day I would be your wife.
For Paulo's second question, things got a bit racy when he asked Binibini No. 32 Charmaine Elima about her opinion on "cursing" or "pagmumura."
But it brought about a new pick-up line to use!
