- For this year's Bb. Pilipinas coronation night, actor Richard Gutierrez and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach hosted the event
- However, their hosting stint garnered negative criticisms online
- Richard finally explained himself and why he appeared "sumisigaw" during the pageant
On March 18, Actor Richard Gutierrez and Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach were this year's hosts for the coronation night of the Binibining Pilipinas held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
However, after the pageant, it was reported that netizens criticized their hosting stint, particularly Richard saying he appeared "sumisigaw" most of the time.
Now, Richard took to Instagram to explain what happened that night.
According to him, there was a problem with the audio and they can't hardly hear themselves, hence, he appeared "shouting" most of the time.
"Now, allow me to clarify some issues. First, the audio.
"What people might not know is that our audio system was perfect during rehearsals but as soon as I stepped on stage during the live show to do my opening spiels, the microphone kept turning off, this was edited out during the telecast. All throughout the show, Pia & I couldn’t hear ourselves, that’s why I had to raise my voice a few times. I’m not sure if this is because of the audio system or the intense energy of the screaming fans inside the coliseum. I wish the situation could’ve been avoided but unfortunately technical difficulties arise during live shows. As a professional, I continued doing my job and tried to sustain the energy of the crowd through out the night. No audio difficulties will stop me from doing my job in the best of my capabilities. As they say, THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
"I would like to salute and sincerely thank mr. M for guiding me all throughout this weekend and for being a gentleman. He explained that this is the first time an incident like this, audio problems, has happened to him and his team. I guess there’s always a first right? But all of this aside, I am thankful and blessed to be able to be part of this memorable event that brings our country together. Have a blessed week everyone!!"
It was Richard's first time to host the Bb. Pilipinas pageant while actor Xian Lim has been hosting the event for 4 consecutive years since 2014.
After the coronation night on March 18, people were comparing the two and some were even saying that Xian should be back hosting the pageant.
