Produce 101 Season 2 Responds To Recent Point System Controversy

Produce 101 Season 2 has released an official statement regarding the recent controversy regarding their point tallying system.

The team stated, We believed that using the total rather than the average would be a fairer system, taking into consideration the fact that the audience could either just vote for one trainee in each round, or not vote in that round at all. We chose such a point system for the group battle evaluation because there are so many components that can be at play other than which trainee is in the group, such as individual talent and teamwork.
