Hundreds of financially-strapped ‘Squid Game’ fans recently competed for a $456,000 cash prize in a real-life replica of the dystopian Netflix series! MrBeast (real name Jimmy Donaldson), a popular YouTuber with 76.4 million subscribers, said the elaborate recreation, in which 456 entrants competed for the jackpot, cost him $3.5 million.
The remake incorporated the same Korean children’s games shown in ‘Squid Game’ including Red Light, Green Light, marbles, and tug-of-war, all of which were built in massive sets that took weeks to assemble. However, unlike in the tense drama, no contestants were hurt.
