MANILA - Local celebrities took to social media to express their thoughts on the third and final leg of the PiliPinas Debates 2016 held at the University of Pangasinan on Sunday.

Moderated by veteran broadcast journalists Tony Velasquez and Karen Davila, ABS-CBN's PiliPinas Debates 2016 gathered all five presidential candidates - Jejomar Binay, Miriam Defensor Santiago, Rodrigo Duterte, Grace Poe and Mar Roxas - to talk about their stance on a myriad of issues. 

Actress Saab Magalona said she was hoping the candidates would spend more time discussing their platforms than delivering funny one-liners.

Singer Mark Bautista joined other netizens who expressed concerns about Santiago's frail appearance.

Meanwhile, comedian and blockbuster movie actor Vice Ganda appeared annoyed at the repetitive promises of those running for office.

Blockbuster filmmaker and Palanca Award-winning writer Antoinette Jadaone expressed disbelief in the candidates' unanimous vow to end job contractualization. She even poked fun at Velasquez’s popular show.

While the debate was aimed at helping voters decide on who to vote for in the coming presidential elections, actress and congressional spouse Dawn Zulueta said she remained undecided.

Without disclosing who she will vote for, TV personality Bianca Gonzales shared her two cents on who gave the best performance in Sunday's debate.
