Additionally, fans of the show have reportedly done their own research. They implied that there were repeats and irregularities in the number of votes each member received from 1st place to 20th place, from a total of 7494.22 votes.
Despite the allegations surrounding the legitimacy of the results, the representative of ‘Produce X 101’ responded that, “even though there may be errors in the presentation of the votes, there are no mistakes in the final ranking.”
