The most trending topic “GomBurZa” earned a lot of attention when Kai and Gabb guessed based on the names presented.
The answer “SLEX” also gained much attention as an answer for the longest bridge in the Philippines.
Due to the disappointing event that happened during the episode, the people are tweeting and tagging DepEd to open the schools.
Meanwhile, others have gone to memes to express their reaction.
