Produce 101 Season 2 Criticized For Unfair Point System

Produce 101 Season 2 is under fire for their point calculations in the third episode.

In the episode that aired on April 21, the trainees participated in group battles for the chance to win 3,000 extra votes. These are added to the total votes that determine the first trainees to be eliminated.

The first battle was between the two groups of trainees who performed 2PMs debut track 10 Out of 10. Although both teams impressed with high-energy performances, viewers noticed a problem in the point system. The team scores were determined through the sums of the individual scores, but the first team (Kim Tae Min, Kim Tae Woo, Kim Hyun Woo, Yoon Jae Chan, Yoon Ji Sung, Lee Hoo Lim) had one less member than the second team (No Tae Hyun, Park Woo Jin, Byun Hyun Min, Ahn Hyung Seob, Yoon Yong Bin, Choi Jun Young, Hong Eun Ki).

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.
