Time to settle in as another national pageant coronation night is upon us, this time for Binibining Pilipinas 2023.
Unless you’ve been logged off from social media since the start of May, you would probably know that we are currently in the midst of pageant season. And following the whirlwind coronation night of Miss Universe Philippines 2023, another event is set to get netizens talking, the 2023 Binibining Pilipinas grand coronation night.
After months of competition, 40 contestants from around the archipelago will finally find out who among them will take home crowns and represent the Philippines in international pageants. And based on how last year’s coronation night went, this gathering might just shake up our Sunday night. Here’s what you need to know about the coronation night so you can be ready to root for your picks.
THE DYNAMIC DUO RETURNS
Last year, Catriona Gray and Nicole Cordoves served as the coronation night’s hosts. And this 2023, the duo is back as the hosts for the coronation night. This will mark the third year in a row where Catriona and Nicole hosted the coronation night for Binibining Pilipinas. And if that wasn’t enough, they’ll be joined by MJ Lastimosa as one of the co-hosts.
THE NIGHT’S PERFORMER
An event like the Binibining Pilipinas Coronation Night deserves a performer who embodies the grace, intelligence, confidence, and elegance of a Binibining Pilipinas contestant. So, the producers chose none other than Vice Ganda to perform during the evening. Given how much of a queen she is, we have a strong feeling Vice is going to turn it out. Who knows, the contestants might even strut their stuff to her new song, Rampa.
AN INTERNATIONAL VISIT
Unlike in past coronation nights, the 2023 edition will only see two crowns be given out after the organization behind Binibining Pilipinas lost the local franchise rights to Binibining Pilipinas Grand International and Binibining Pilipinas Intercontinental. Still, by the end of the evening, we’ll see two queens be named Binibining Pilipinas International 2023 and Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2023 as Nicole Borromeo and Chelsea Fernandez will crown their respective successors. And in an international twist, Miss International 2022 Jasmin Selberg will be in attendance where she will be the one to crown Binibining Pilipinas International 2023.
