However, Mnet responded to the rumors that they had no reason to rig the votes. They refrained from making an official statement as they believed it would cause further controversy.

It’s even weird for us to confirm or deny rumors about rigging the votes from a live broadcast.

We have no reason to manipulate the votes. We decided to not make an official statement because we feel that in itself will cause more issues.

— Mnet

With that, the final members of X1 will remain the same as it was announced on the final episode of PRODUCE X 101. The group is gearing up for their official debut as they already confirmed their debut date and promotional events for August 27!
