We need to see MJ Lastimosa host more Binibining Pilipinas coronation nights.
Last year, we wrote a story about MJ Lastimosa being the unofficial commentator for the 2022 Binibining Pilipinas Grand Coronation, and we said that we wanted to see her host the show because her commentary was so good. Well, it seems as if we manifested that as three-peat hosts Catriona Gray and Nicole Cordoves were joined by MJ as the third co-host of the evening.
Together, they made for a triple slay as each brought something different to the table. And with MJ, it was her humor that lightened the mood and gave us new memes to add to our folder. She really is a goldmine for quotes. Here are a few moments from the evening where MJ’s meme prowess shined.
WHAT CAN’T SHE DO? EVERYTHING
We’re going to assume MJ didn’t mean to say that when she and Nicole were talking about Hidilyn Diaz. But we just love how MJ said it with such conviction.
Is she co-hosting Binibining Pilipinas or opening her concert? That’s the energy a grand coronation deserves.
Catriona Gray is that friend who always knows what to say while MJ Lastimosa is that supportive bestie.
MJ AS BUBBLES
We just know the Powerpuff Girls were on the moodboard when Catriona, Nicole, and MJ stepped out in these stunning looks. MJ was giving Bubbles all grown-up.
THE ICONIC NATIONAL COSTUME
At this point, MJ’s national costume for Miss Universe 2014 has etched itself onto Pinoy pop culture history. Despite how many have said that it wasn’t good, people still talk about it nearly a decade later. That’s kinda iconic if you think about it. And during the night, MJ was more than willing to champion the memed national costume.
BONUS: CATRIONA’S EVENING GOWN WALK
Even if she was a host, Catriona showed the girls how it’s done with her evening gown walk. The spiel to the pose then the walk, all while walking down steps? We know that’s right.
