'Produce X 101' reveals the number of final debut members


Mnet's 'Produce X 101' revealed how many trainees will be making their debut. 

The first episode of the idol competition show aired on May 3. After all the trainees entered the studio, MC Lee Dong Wook explained this year's system. 

Based on the 'X' in 'Produce X 101,' many believed there will be 10 final members. However, Lee Dong Wook revealed the debut group will have 11 members - the same as season 2 that produced Wanna One

However, there's a twist. The 11th member is not determined by the final ranking but by votes. The trainee that gained the greatest amount of total votes throughout the entire show will be debuting regardless of their ranking. In conclusion, the debut members will be rankings 1 to 10 plus X. 

Trainees reacted positively to the new system, commenting, "In season 2, Jonghyun (NU'EST JR) sunbaenim could've debuted," "The 'X' opportunity will come if I work hard," "I personally like this system."

Damn, now I’m wondering how different all the rankings for the other 3 seasons would’ve been if they did it this way...Not complaining, I was totally fine with all three groups that came out of it and did grow to love most of the members who weren’t “my picks”.

Honestly I’m kind of glad Jonghyun didn’t make it in to the final group. I was upset at first since he was such a shoe in for the final ranking, but honestly Nu’est needed him more and it all worked out in the end. Kaeun on the other hand, I’m still shocked about her placing 14th.
