Episode 6

In this episode, the girls are measured in height, weight and bust, waist and hip width. Also, over the past week, the girls received points for how often they were on time for practice and a score of up to 100 points was kept for each member. Points were deducted for tardiness or not showing up to classes without proper notice.

Episode 7

This episode shows how handshake events work. Some members, like Ánh Sáng, have a lot of visitors, but there are also members like Phụng Nhi and DONA, who barely have any visitors in their lane at all. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, members are wearing screen visors and fans have to get their temperature checked before being allowed inside. At the end, the members also put on a short performance. Then, the top 5 members with most handshake tickets are called to stage;

  1. Lệ Trang (674 tickets) as the Handshake Queen 2020
  2. Hikari (265 tickets)
  3. Trùng Dương (232 tickets)
  4. Thu Nga (170 tickets)
  5. Kaycee (164 tickets)

Episode 8

The four teams each chose an SGO48 song to perform. All teams had to nominate a member each that would not receive any points for this round. At the end of the episode, the 16 members with the most points were announced to be the senbatsu for SGO48's next single (not yet announced). Lệ Trang gave up her spot in senbatsu.
