Fans are voting to provide “sponsorship” to their favorite trainee, which comes in the form of gifts. The tiers of rewards given to the trainees ranges from headphones and beauty products, all the way up to a snack truck dedicated to them.
Produce 101 Season 2 has not been without controversy however. The show has recently been under fire for discriminating against the contestants by ranking. Additionally, trainee Han Jong Yeon dropped out due to a bullying scandal that was revealed after he joined the show, while two more trainees, Kim Shi Hyun and Nam Yoon Sung, dropped out due to health concerns.
The first episode of Produce 101 Season 2 airs on April 7.
