The On-Stage Fomo Missions

The members were divided into two teams – Team No Sleep and Team No FOMO. Eric, Paul, Hana and Benjamin represents Team No Sleep while Kim Jong Kook, Xander, Nat and Laureen represents Team No FOMO.
For the first mission, it was a K-Pop dance show off. From the VIU Engagement Mission, participants voted the song T.T. by Twice for the members to dance on.
In the first mission, Team No Sleep Wins.
Meanwhile, in the second mission, the teams had to eat as many lemon slices as they can in one minute. The audience saw both teams at a close battle devouring the sour juicy lemons. In the end. Team FOMO wins.
Since it was a draw, another mission was added as a tie-breaker. Each group had to jug two pints of Milo energy drink in 45 seconds. It was like a tortoise and a hare race between the two teams. Team No Sleep quickly took advantage, one jug ahead of Team No Sleep, while Xander from Team No FOMO slowly but surely finished one pint. In the end, Team No Sleep won the overall round.
Prior to the start of the show, participants chose between the two teams. In the ballot, the winning team, will draw one lucky winner of three major prizes.
