On the May 26 episode, Kim Jong Hyun shared his thoughts on taking first place, and said, "I'm very happy but the ranking is very high. I appreciate it."
Park Ji Hoon also shared thoughts on his ranking, and said, "#3 is a high ranking but disappointment swept over me when I got #3. I came to think that I might've gotten a better outcome if I worked harder but #3 is still very meaningful."
