Loraine Jara of Bulacan was hailed as Binibining Bingo Plus, Sharmaine Magdasoc from Ortigas, Pasig is Manila Bulletin Readers' Choice, and April Barro of Cagayan de Oro emerged as Binibining Pizza Hut.

Award-winning actors Dolly de Leon and Piolo Pascual, Olympian weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz, Manila Mayor Honey Lacuna, Tatler Philippines editor-in-chief Anton San Diego, social media personality Small Laude, SB19 member Josh Cullen, Wolfgang’s Steakhouse president Peter Zwiener, presidential son Vincent Marcos, and Miss International 2022 Jasmin Salberg comprised the panel of judges.

The event was hosted by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, Miss Universe Philippines 2014 MJ Lastimosa, and Miss Grand International 2016 first runner-up Nicole Cordoves.

Singer Darren Espanto kicked off the coronation night with his energetic rendition of the pageant’s theme song, while Vice Ganda performed for the first time her latest single “Rampa,” which she wrote for Binibining Pilipinas.
