Summary

The contestants entered the studio, where seats were arranged in a pyramid numbered from 1 to 96. Each contestant was introduced according to their company or group, with their self-predicted rankings shown on a monitor above the stage. After all 96 girls were seated, Jeon Somi and Kang Daniel, the first place winners of the past two seasons, entered as special MC's to explain the rules of the competition. They revealed that top producers Han Sungsoo and Yasushi Akimoto would be involved in producing the debut album of the final group, which would be composed of 12 members this year instead of 11. The contestants then performed in front of the mentors for evaluation. Each individual was given a letter grade from A to F based on their overall talents, organizing them into temporary classes for training. At the end, the popularity ranking was shown with HKT48's Miyawaki Sakura taking 1st place.
