Sharing the good news on Instagram Zozi wrote: “I had the most incredible time last night Co-Hosting the National Costume Show. Actually, I did the whole thing @nickinnashville was just standing there and did an okay job (Kidding not Kidding. Its all love) Hope you had the best time. Can’t wait to see you all at Prelims and on Final night”

However many took to the comment section to voice out their grievances, the majority complaining about her rushing the contestants.

Guatebellezas wrote: “You took time away from the candidates, they did not have any kind of coordination, without a doubt Miss Grand gave you a lesson on how to do a National Costume presentation.”

Responding to Guatebellezas made it clear that the timing of the show is not up to her.

She wrote: “First of all the timing of the show is not up to the hosts so please if you’re gonna come at someone at least base it on concrete facts for risk of embarrassing yourself. Some people on here also communicated their feelings in a classy way. I understand your frustration but if you’re gonna come up on my feed make sure not to come at me sideways.

“Do with it kindness and intelligence. I see you left a couple of other distasteful comments on here and If you’re used to bullying people you’re in the wrong place. We don’t do that here. Go collect your words properly and when you’re ready to have an actual constructive conversation come back. Have a great one.”
