CAP-TEEN starts with MC Jang Yewon introducing the concept of the show and day one begins with a talent evaluation where each contestant will be evaluated based on a performance they have prepared. Contestants will need to receive a 'pass' from two of four judges in order to advance to the next round, while those who do not pass will be eliminated. The judges panel, made up of Lee Seungchul, Jessi, Soyou and Shownu, take their seats to evaluate the first contestant. The first contestant of the show, Kang Himchan, sings "Man" by trot singer Na Hoona and receives a pass for his unique vocal performance. The next contestants to pass are Lee Dahyun, Kim Hanbyul, Cho Ayoung, Team All U and Yoo Dawon while contestants Oh Junhee, Choi Jungeun and Team Lovely Pink, did not receive a pass and are thus eliminated.
