During her time in the 2020 AUDiTiON CAMP, Monster Idol became unpopular with the other contestants and audience for her attitude. She was difficult to work with, would force herself to cry when she didn't get her way and despite being given earnest advice on how to be more personable, she didn't change which she acknowledged during a speech where auditionees had to convince fans to vote for them.
On the 5th day, she attempted to ask Watanabe for advice but it turned into a small but heated discussion involving the two of them staring at each other without saying anything for a solid minute and Watanabe having to restrain himself from raising his voice.
On March 28th, Despite making it to the end of the audition camp, she was not promoted to any group during the closing ceremony. During her speech before the results were announced, she acknowledged that she hadn't changed much in 3 years of auditioning for WACK groups but no matter the result, she'll face that as whom she really is.
The following June, Hinata participated in the Project WACK-Chin Audition, using the name "Hinata "Othello Tsuyoi" Undead" (ヒナタ“オセロ強い”アンデッド; Hinata "Othello Strong" Undead). However, she failed to pass the public interview stage.
