I think Idol School at most they manipulate the result to get those trainee they like into the final line-up since it's going to be a perm group under them.
For PD101 and PD48, it was reported that they determined the rankings before public voting even began. This means that the exact rankings of the Top 20 were pre-determined before the competition started, favoring some trainees over others.
The police have also found that the producers had edited the episodes since the preliminary round so that certain trainees could stand out, and informed the evaluation songs in advance to certain trainees.
According to the police and the court, the raw data of the final votes and the announced ranks of the trainees were different as they did not take into consideration the actual votes of the last episode.
'Idol Room' & 'Amazing Saturday' to not air due to IZ*ONE's guest appearances; members to cameo as planned on 'Busted 2'
Due to recent developments involving police investigations into Mnet's 'Produce 48' and 'Produce X 101', tvN's 'Amazing Saturday - Doremi Market' and JTBC's 'Idol Room' will not be airing this coming weekend and in approximately two weeks, respectively.
On November 8, representatives from 'Idol Room' told media outlets, "'Idol Room' will not be airing this coming November 19. There is nothing confirmed regarding what will air instead in the timeslot."
The November 19 broadcast of 'Idol Room' was originally scheduled to show IZ*ONE's guest appearance, in light of their comeback. However, due to the fact that Ahn Joon Young PD has recently admitted to vote rigging allegations during 'Produce 48' and 'Produce X 101', IZ*ONE have cancelled their comeback altogether, issuing refunds to fans who pre-ordered their album.
Similarly, tvN's 'Amazing Saturday' will also not be airing this November 9, as IZ*ONE members Jang Won Young and Choi Ye Na were expected to appear as guests.
However, also on November 8, Netflix's 'Busted' season 2 representatives stated, "There will be no changes to IZ*ONE's pre-filmed content." Members of IZ*ONE will be making cameo appearances in 'Busted' season 2 alongside numerous other cameo stars, and the series has chosen not to edit out the members' portions.
Reports reveal that PDs determined the top 20 trainees for 'Produce X 101' and 'Produce 48' before public voting even started
Recent news reports have revealed that the PDs for the Mnet trainee reality series 'Produce 101' determined the top 20 trainees before public voting even started. It was revealed that the two producers of the show had chosen these trainees themselves without any regard for voting for 'Produce 48' and 'Produce X 101'.
These revelations are incredibly shocking, considering that trainees were believed to have gone through three rounds of public voting to obtain their spots. The entire concept of the show circles around the fact that the nation is the group's producer, making the reveal of the following information that much more shocking.
The two main PDs for the Mnet reality show are currently in custody due to voter fraud charges. Stay tuned for more updates.
