A coronation night for a major pageant can’t be complete without a little bit of drama, emotions, and a lot of humor. And Binibining Pilipinas 2022 provided just that.
And just like that, Binibining Pilipinas 2022 has come to an end. After months of hard work, runway walks, and extravagant gowns, it all came down to a single night. SB19 opened the show with a spectacular performance of Win Your Heart, which set the mood for what was to come. Catriona Gray and Nicole Cordoves served looks on look in the continuation of their historic run as all-female hosts for the pageant. The evening gowns were gowning, certain statements and answers given raised eyebrows while others elicited praise, and the Q&A segment once again delivered some of the highlights of the night.
In the end, six queens were crowed. In particular, Cebu’s Nicole Borromeo was named Bb. Pilipinas International, Tacloban City’s Chelsea Fernandez was named Bb. Pilipinas Globe, Eastern Samar’s Gabrielle Basiano is Bb. Pilipinas Intercontinental, and San Pablo, Laguna’s Roberta Angela Tamondong was crowned Bb. Pilipinas Grand International. Angono Rizal’s Nicole Budol meanwhile took home first runner-up while Cainta Rizal’s Stacey Daniella B. Gabriel was named second runner-up. Of course, netizens on social media were ready to give their takes as all of this was going down live at the Araneta Coliseum. From Catriona’s attention-grabbing earrings to certain queens not making it to the top, here are just some of the best reaction and memes we scoured on social media.
RIGHT OUT OF THE GATE, PEOPLE WERE ALREADY ALL ABOUT CATRIONA’S CHANDELIER-ESQUE EARRINGS

SB19 OPENED THE SHOW, MADE SOME NEW FANS, AND EVEN TEASED WHAT COULD BE THERE NEXT COMEBACK
SB19 has this magic of turning the things they touch to gold. Their rendition of #BinibiningPilipinas2022 theme song made the song at par with Magandang Dilag, Dalagang Pilipina and your other daily pop songs. #BbPilipinas2022— JeromeBenedict?제롬 (@clintoncloud09) July 31, 2022
