I've been looking at the rankings and the 11th episode ranking seems more or less legit
IF I assume it is legit this should be the members who made it in (not necessarily in these ranks, but still) I'll name them in the order they were ranked in episode 11

Sakura
Miho
Chaeyeon
Hyewon
Gaeun
Miyu
Wonyoung
Miru
Nako (9)
Hitomi (11)
Chowon (Ranked 13th in episode 11, confirmed to be rigged out)

+ either Miu (she ranked 10th above Hitomi in episode 11) or Eunbi (ranked 12th)

Hitomi ranked higher than Miu in episode 11, BUT I don't think Mnet had any reason to rig a japanese member IN, so she prolly made it legit. Miu also dropped in rank from 6th to 10th, so it wouldn't be unreasonable to assume she might have dropped more.

that makes Chaewon, Yuri, Yena, Minju and Yujin who were DEFINITELY rigged in and Eunbi who was maybe rigged in

Honestly... I would've liked an IZ*ONE that had This lineup w Eunbi. It'd be an even 6-6 split with all my favourites still in there.....
weird to think about.

stop saying that trainee A should have been in the lineup instead of member B. yes, the show was rigged and some current members’ real ranks weren't revealed and they might not have made it to the final lineup, but what makes you think that the trainees you mentioned above would have made it? i've seen many people saying that chowon could have taken eunbi’s place if she was the main vocalist for the last stage. but if you think about it carefully, has chowon ever ranked higher than eunbi throughout the show? the only time she made it to the top 12 was when she ranked 9, eunbi ranked 5 at that time. even if the votes were rigged from the start, eunbi was a more popular topic for knetz throughout the whole time, she also received more votes in other sites. chowon rose in popularity but degrading the members of iz*one isn’t gonna prove that the trainees you mentioned above deserved a debut ticket.

Like I said at the beginning of the post, this is assuming the ranks shown in the 11th episode were correct.
Also Chowon was CONFIRMED to be one of the members rigged out.....

I ain't saying this according to who I would prefer in the group, I'm saying it would've been most likely Eunbi who didn't make it bcs she was ranked 12th in episode 11.

I'm not talking about who deserves or doesn't deserve to be in the group, I love the current IZ*ONE to bits. I'm speculating who would and would not have been in the group if the results weren't rigged.

I GET that you are sensitive on this topic as smby who loves IZ*ONE the way they are rn, but that doesn't mean others shouldn't be allowed to talk about or discuss what the lineup viewers voted for would've been.

all of the idols are so talented and they all deserve to debut :pepecry1:as much as i adore iz*one the way they are now, it's interesting to think about what it would be like if mnet hadn't messed with the rankings. i feel so sorry for the girls that didn't make it. it's so unfair to them.

I'm the exact same place, I stan IZ*ONE as they are rn. The scandal has not made me love the lineup any less and there is no guarantee I would've stanned them with a different lineup.

BUT that doesn't make it any less interesting to think about what IZ*ONE could've or would've been.

i'm sorry if i sounded rude lmao i'm just tired of people attacking the girls and trying to say " member A was rigged in over trainee B" when the girls did nothing wrong at all. mnet is the real snake here and i'm pretty sure all the trainees, as well as the members of iz*one, are victims.

I do agree with that! It sucks that people will use discussions like this to hate on the girls themselves, when the girls have not done anything wrong! This scandal has also damaged the reputations of the girls who ARE in IZ*ONE.

Yeah I'm also of the same mind that there probably were more than 2 names rigged in, but as things stand, since Kaeun and Chowon are the only confirmed members to be rigged out, I think Yuri and Chaewon are the 2 most likely to be rigged in.

I understand why they did it, Yuri was the best main vocalist option they had so they likely wanted to add more vocal firepower. Chaewon is interesting because although she's pretty popular now and a great all rounder, she really didn't get much camera time for most of PD48 and kinda flew under the radar until towards the end. Eunbi was the one with the screentime from among the Woollim trainees.

If the 2 were all that were aced out then the pd probably totally screwed up.
While i am pretty sure by the end he did not want Kaeun what they really did not want was the older Japanese girls or more than 3-4 Japanese in the final group. And they might not have wanted Sakura or Chaeyeon as center but that is pure conjecture.
I think that was why they picked the group early.

if say the 12 was as is with the 2 swapped out for 2 of the other Korean members they would have probably lived with it day of the show. If the eliminated members included one of the j line that would have been even worse. Can you see the s storm if only Sakura made it.

Remember ep 11 was a 2 pick so there could have be a bunch of tactical voting going on. I do not think it is a good judge of the show even if they did not fix that ranking too.

Honestly for this type of deal i prefer full group count pick. Pick the kids you think are good and will work great together. I think 1 pick is the weakness as it drives the wrong things.
