After several controversies, the fierce all-female rap survival program “Unpretty Rapstar 2” has finally crowned their winner!
The show’s second season was highly anticipated after the success of the first, but the new season was not without its controversies. Even before the broadcast, it was revealed that 4Minute’s Jiyoon would be participating halfway through the show. Many people wondered if it was necessary to have yet another idol rapper on the show (joining Wonder Girls’ Yubin, FIESTAR’s Yezi, and Sistar’s Hyorin).
Further along in the show, Rubber Soul’s Kim and EXY also joined the show, raising complaints that they were added when the season was almost complete. Other issues include the revelation that Ash-B, Heize, Kasper, and Truedy had signed to continue with Mnet after the show and the “malicious editing” scandal.
The Mnet show broadcast its final episode on November 13. The winners of the semi-finals, Truedy, KittiB, Sua, and Hyorin, performed a track called “Confidence” with the singer Gummy. Standing onstage together, they showed off fantastic chemistry as if they’d been one team all along.
After the performance, the results of the first round of voting were revealed.
In first place was Truedy, while KittiB, Hyorin, and Sua took second, third, and fourth respectively. When the first and second rounds of voting were combined, Truedy took the final crown.
