Young Russian man who couldn't get out of a reality show - finally voted out

A 27-year-old part-time model and translator Vladislav Ivanov from Vladivostok has been finally voted out of the Chinese reality TV show Produce Camp 2021, after he tried hard to give lousy performances, but the fans still voted for him, Guardian reports. He joined the show because he got bored on the island where it was filmed - he worked as a translator for two Japanese contestants - but soon changed his mind, only, he couldn't get out without paying a fine. Ivanov gave poor performances, but his clear reluctance was winning him fans, viral social media emoji and unwanted votes that have carried him into the final of the boy band competition. He was eventually voted out in the final episode.
