MANILA, Philippines — The all-female hosting duo of 2018 Miss Universe Catriona Gray and 2016 Miss Grand International first runner-up Nicole Cordoves that graced the 2021 Binibining Pilipinas pageant stage will be back for this year’s edition of the national competition.

The tandem’s debut last year marked the first time that the Bb. Pilipinas grand coronation night was hosted by an all-female pair, and it received rave reviews from observers and spectators, especially because the two beauty queens kept the competition’s pace up to speed, and effectively engaged the limited viewers watching live, as well as those watching on TV and digital platforms.

But if in last year’s edition Cordoves single-handedly took over the digital chatroom, this year’s edition will have another Miss Grand International first runner-up, Samantha Bernardo, to keep remote viewers company. Bernardo, who finished second in the 2020 Miss Grand International pageant staged early 2021 in Thailand, will be joined by fellow “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Edward Barber in engaging those who are watching online. Barber’s former on-screen partner Maymay Entrata will also take the stage for a special performance during the coronation night.
