Summary

Amidst the eliminations, the girls underwent various lessons (make-up and speech), attended a therapy session to share their feelings, and participated in a fun question relay. They were also asked to pick the 5 most popular trainees amongst them, with Pledis Entertainment's Zhou Jieqiong taking 1st place and Kim Doyeon, Jeon Somi, Kim Chungha, and Lee Suhyun taking 2nd to 5th place, respectively. At the elimination, Jang Geunsuk revealed that only 22 trainees would be advancing to the final stage. The girls were also shocked to discover huge differences in the rankings as a result of the new voting system and the 150,000 vote benefit from the concept evaluation. Various girls previously ranking within the top 11 falling near the bottom. Ranks 21 to 3 were revealed and Kim Sejeong and Jeon Somi were called up as the contenders for 1st, with Jeon Somi revealed to have won by a landslide. The contenders for 22nd place are then called up: Chorokbaem Juna's Ng Sze Kai and SS Entertainment's Lee Suhyun. Lee Suhyun once again barely survives being eliminated. With the top 22 confirmed, Jang Geunsuk announced the final mission: the debut song evaluation. He introduced "CRUSH" (produced by Ryan Jhun, who previously produced "Fingertips") as the final line-up's debut song. He explained that they would be split into two teams of 11, each team would be composed of one main vocal, eight sub vocals, and two rappers, with only Jeon Somi's position as center confirmed due to having previously ranked 1st. The girls chose their positions beginning with rank 22 up to 1. The higher ranked girls were given the advantage of replacing the lower ranked girls and bumping them into another position. After positions were confirmed, the girls began practicing the choreography and memorized the lyrics in preparation for the final stage.
