They try for sure, but it doesn't always work.
They played safe with Shannon and Jinee in the same group. Since the others where 3, it was already decided one of them will pass out.
But with the gg contestants, the issue was totaly different. They played safe but at the end the needed to sacrifice a white lamb. A future top class idol that put a bad perf.
Who Krisha chu? A future top class overrated idol just because YG want her, lbr people made a fuss about her being eliminated just because YG want her so his worshipper being crazy when she got eliminated, some even starting attacking Jini or other mocking other contestant like commoners with no star quality lmao. In fact is not other fault when she is the one who put bad display.
