With each new episode of Mnet‘s I-LAND, the pressure is building for its trainees and their fans. Which of the 11 remaining I-LANDers will debut in the Top 7?
Between Episodes 9 and 10, another Global Vote took place, rearranging the trainees’ ranks. Those at the bottom were in danger of being eliminated. The mid-ranking from 1 to 11 was: Sunoo, Heesung, Sunghoon, Ta-ki, Jake, Jungwon, Daniel, Hanbin, K, Ni-ki, and Jay.
Last week, Jay burned with ambition as he and his crew of underdogs faced off again the top ranking trainees for a dance challenge. He was determined to take Heesung’s place as #1, but the Global Vote has sent him to the bottom of the mid-ranking.
This ranking had viewers feeling stressed and frustrating, especially Jay’s fans, who feel that his talent should have earned him a higher rank.

my heart aches already at the thought of seeing jay wondering why he ranked 11th and seeing all of his big hit friends ranking high and still having their badges… he just doesn’t deserve it 🙁

Despite this devastating blow, Jay still powered through, ready to face any challenge that comes his way. He danced his heart out with the I-LANDers’ guest mentors, SEVENTEEN, and got nothing but love from his fellow trainees.
