International fan favorite contestant has been eliminated on Mnet's 'I-LAND'


On September 11, another contestant has been sent home on Mnet's 'I-LAND'.

In the last episode, the I-landers said their goodbyes to member Taki and prepared for their third test. Many of the I-landers felt many sad to see their fellow contestants leave but felt they were a step closer to making their debut. Once again, the show revealed the global vote ranking from the second test. Kim Sun Woo came in first place followed by Lee Hee Seung, Jay, Han Bin, Park Sung Hoon, K, Jake, Yang Jung Won, Niki, and Daniel.

This was the first time Yang Jung Won was not able to receive the badge that symbolizes the members who are in the top seven.

After the rankings were revealed, they reallocated the unit members for their third test. The I-landers were given five days to practice their songs. Unit one was given 'Chamber 5' while the second unit was given 'Flame On'.

Finally, the contestants stood in front of the judges to show off their performance they have prepared for five days. Many of the contestants became nervous as the time became closer to the exam.

Each contestant was determined to give their best and enjoy the stage. However, the members couldn't hide the fact that the ranking will change once they complete the exam and receive the assessment from the producers as the lowest rank will be sent home.

The unit groups completed their performances successfully and waited for the scores to be announced. It was revealed that the first place I-lander had received the highest score of 92, which is the highest score since the second round.

The contestant to take the glorious number 1 was member K. The producers complimented his improvement in his facial expression and stated they were proud of him.

The next contestants to survive to the next stage was Niki with a score of 87, followed by Kim Sun Woo with a score of 86, then Lee Seung Hee, Park Sung Hoon, Jay, Jake, and Daniel, leaving two members as the lowest place.

The two members Han Bin and Yang Jung Won waited for the announcement of the final survivor to make the next round. Ultimately, Yang Jung Won's name was called as the ninth member to survive to leave Han Bin disqualified.

Many of the fellow contestants shed tears as they were sad to see another member leave. The contestants had formed strong bonds with each other throughout the show and became harder to say goodbye to each other.

Kim Jung Won seemed to have the hardest time as he had grown very close with Han Bin. Each contestant said their goodbyes and was now one step closer to their dream.

I highly agree with the producers descision, Hanbin's tone didn't fit the group at all. I thought Jungwon ( My pick) would be eliminated but thank the lord he made it .

Generally the picks of the viewers are: (This isn't my list)

1: Heesung

2: Sunghoon

3: K

4: Sunoo

5: Jungwon

6: Jake

7: Jay

Kinda wish the producers will let there an 8th member as I really like Niki,,,,,, It would be a shame for the debuting team to not have someone as hard working as Niki. He's proven time and time again that he has what it takes to debut in this group. Unfortunately, global votes are the only thing that brings him down since he isn't popular in that area.

I really like this show and I hope Big Hit eventually brings in enough female trainees to host a survival show for a girl group.

People are talking about how the show is rigged and how the producers already have in mind who they want from before the show aired and I’m not ganna say that it’s true or that it’s false. I have learnt from produce series that this is common. After watching all 11 episodes I think everyone could tell the top 5/6 members that we kind of know will make it. It’s been clear since part 2. From episode 1 I could tell heeseung was a producers pick and honestly he has the right to be. I didn’t like him at first cuz it just seemed like he already had a spot. After watching the show I saw that he really does deserve a spot and he has real talent, charisma on stage and his vocals are good. When part 2 started after looking at the global vote it does look like it wasn’t manipulated. Judging by YouTube comments and twitter I can tell the popular members. After that was the producers pick and I thought that line up want biased. After that was global vote which didn’t seem manipulated. Jay was 11 before and then moved to 3. He has always been a member at rank 6 or 7 for producers so I doubt they would allow him to go to rank 3 if it was manipulated. This week was producers and k was #1 which I agree with . He has never been been my top 3 but his performance was deserving of number 1 and their fav heeseung was rank 4 and both sunoo and niki were higher than him which has never happened before. However, I could be be wrong and this whole thing could be rigged .
