'Produce 101' viewers are demanding an explanation from Mnet.

On the 21st's episode, the trainees went up against one another and covered various songs by sunbae boy groups. One of the songs covered was 2PM's "10 out of 10". The two groups that went up against each other were Yoon Jae Chan, Lee Hoo Rim, Kim Hyun Woo, Yoon Ji Sung, Kim Tae Woo, and Kim Tae Min, versus No Tae Hyun, Yoon Yong Bin, Hong Eun Ki, Byun Hyun Min, Ahn Hyung Seob, Park Woo Jin, and Choi Joon Young. The second team had one more member than the first team.

As a result, the second team won - but not by much. In fact, the second team only won in the 'sub vocal 3' category when matched up to the other team, and won by a mere 47 points even though they had one more member. When averaged, the first team has 59.5 per member while the second has 57.3. 

During Season 1's 1st round, the teams that covered f(x)'s "LA chA TA" had a similar issue where one team had less members than the other team. As a result, the 'Season 1' staff averaged the scores and gave the victory to the team with the higher average instead of the higher total.

Many netizens are furious over the situation, as 3,000 votes can mean either an in or out for many trainees. Viewers are arguing it was unfair for the first team because they had less members, and because they won in almost all the matchups.

Did you watch the episode? What do you think?

it was unfair i was sad for jisung and others

Dian09 Monday, April 24, 2017

that's not fair, b'cause one side have 6 member and the other side have 7 member. Don't you think its not fair. A team don't have sub vocal 4 and B teaem  had sub vocal 4. If you look it carefully, B team has 401 votes b'cause they have sub vocal 4,and A team has 357 if they don't have sub vocal 4, B team lose, 401-163 = 238...Please if you don't won't your program rating drop, PLEASE BE FAIR !!!

That's not fair at all! If one team doesn't have the same amount of members, give them a bit of an advantage! Don't make shitty excuses!

Fantastic_sista Monday, April 24, 2017

They excuse Mnet gave for this is pathetic. They said it's not unfair because people could choose to for vote for someone or not vote for anyone at all. That's stupid because if Team 1 had another member, there's no way NOBODY would have voted for him. Mnet does not have common sense. The second team was very good with the moves and stuff but if they went with the average score the first team should have won, fair and square! Maybe I'm being biased because my ultimate bae Yoon Jisung was in Team One. I didn't even have any problems with Team Two winning until people noticed this.

They say they want to debut a "global group" but international fans does not even have the chance to vote or a way to reflect to the management on our opinions. Then what's the point of this show. Viewers are just manipulated by the producers to vote for what the producers like because we are more exposed to those with more screen time. To think that I was anticipating it for so long.

IOI need a variety king (Jinsung). I hope koreans save him.

jlark234 Monday, April 24, 2017

What I don't get is why they went for the average for S1 but went for the total point for S2? I don't remember S1 having this much complaints and issues

LETS ALL HOLD OUR HORSES.... this only becomes an issue if someone from group A gets eliminated in ep 5 because of this result... thats when we should start this witch hunt, its not that bad right now...

Satzz Sunday, April 23, 2017

Honestly speaking the second group did way better than the first one. The second group had a lot of hard moves as well. No one in the first group really did acrobatics. So I think the second one truly deserved the win.

Imshook Satzz Sunday, April 23, 2017

But the point is its unfair. What if they did better with 1 less member? Isn't it the same? Yes, still unfair.

Imshook Satzz Sunday, April 23, 2017

According to Knetz twitter team 2 BOY IN LUV did better but they have 2 less members and lost. Because "Avengers team" (aka team 1) made two mistakes. They forgot the lyrics and messed up the choreo. They still won because 7 vs 5 members. How is that fair?

babynoir Imshook Sunday, April 23, 2017

Exactly. I think there's nothing to be proud of IF they won. I'm glad that Minhyun's team score higher than the so-called Avengers (am not hating on Avengers).

Imshook babynoir Monday, April 24, 2017

Yeah. Someone leaked Justice League score. They got 522 votes in total. I was shocked when Daewhi said he created Avengers team. Sometimes its better to keep quite.

babynoir Imshook Thursday, April 27, 2017

I personally think Avengers are meant for an all-rounder. If they balance their teammates without putting popularity as top priority, I think it would have been much better. But still, we can't blame Daehwi for being too ambitious. Its a survival show, he need to survive. Eventhough I think he would be okay eventho he didnt get the 3000 votes.

seochulgoo Sunday, April 23, 2017

All I care is that Taehyun won it and that the second group was way better than the first one. The second one had better vocals and better dance. The first one had popular members, so they had more votes.

Imshook seochulgoo Sunday, April 23, 2017

You dont get the article do you? Its not about who got more points or does better job covering. The point is 2nd team won because they had 1 more member.

seochulgoo Imshook Sunday, April 23, 2017

I know it, I read the article and I noticed that when I watched the ep. But the """real winner""" would be team 1 only because they have more popular members, that's what I'm saying.

babynoir seochulgoo Sunday, April 23, 2017

Team 1 only have Yoon Jisung, the popular member. Team 2 have Hyungseub and Taehyun. Like it really doesn't matter who deserve to win but at least use proper and fair system.
