Ipinagtanggol ng Cornerstone Entertainment sina Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray at Miss Grand International 2016 Nicole Cordoves sa kontrobersiyal na Binibining Pilipinas 2022 coronation night.

Ang Cornerstone ang talent management company na nangangalaga kina Catriona at Nicole, na hosts ng katatapos na beauty pageant.

Nabahiran ng isyu ang programa nang magkaroon ng delay sa announcement ng nanalong Bb. Pilipinas-International 2022.

Nagkaroon ng dead air pagkatapos maunang maanunsiyo ang winners ng Bb. Pilipinas-Intercontinental, Bb. Pilipinas-Globe, at Bb. Pilipinas-Grand International pati na rin first at second runners-up ng pageant.

Nakuhanan ng video ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang bahagi ng programa kunsaan kinausap sina Catriona at Nicole ng floor director ng pageant sa kalagitnaan ng delay.

Makikita sa mukha ni Catriona ang pag-aalala at seryosong pagturo niya sa kanyang cue cards para ipaabot sa floor director kung anuman ang mensahe niya.

Maririnig naman ang isang lalaki sa audience na ilang beses napakomento ng, "May mali?"

Dahil sa delay sa programa ay hindi maiwasang mapatanong ang netizens at mga nakapanood ng coronation night kung ano ang dahilan ng delay.

May napakuwestiyon din kung may "Steve Harvey" moment ba na nangyari sa pageant.

Matatandaang kontrobersiyal ang pagkakamali ni Steve Harvey sa Miss Universe 2015 coronation night nang tawagin niya ang pangalan ni Miss Colombia bilang winner, gayong ang tunay na winner ay si Miss Philippines Pia Wurtzbach.

CORNERSTONE'S OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Sa kasong ito, nanindigan ang Cornerstone na walang pagkakamali ang Binibining Pilipinas 2022 hosts na sina Catriona at Nicole.

"Accurate" daw ang binasang resulta nina Catriona at Nicole, at beripikado pa raw ito ng SGV.

Sabi sa kabuuang pahayag ng Cornerstone (published as is):

CATRIONA'S EXPLANATION

Naglabas din ng personal na pahayag si Catriona hinggil sa isyu.

Sabi ni Catriona sa kanyang Facebook post ngayong Lunes ng gabi, August 1, 2022:

"About last night...

"As the hosts of last night’s Binibining Pilipinas 2022, @binibiningnicolecordoves and I announced the winners accordingly based on the titles printed on the individual title cards as these were handed over by SGV & Co. partner and representative, Mr. Ocho.

"As a member of the overseeing committee during the deliberations (as pictured on slide 4 by BPCI Execom member @laraquigaman), Mr. Ocho later rechecked the cards and confirmed that the results previously announced were correct, which became the decisive factor in moving forward with the announcement.

"As former candidates ourselves, we understand what the girls go through and would, therefore—without a second thought—correct any errors, if any were made.

"But as already explained, SGV & Co. partner and representative Mr. Ocho himself confirmed the validity of the results."

Pilipinas-Grand International 2022), Herlene Nicole Budol (1st runner-up), at Stacey Daniella Gabriel, (2nd runner-up).
