'The Squid Game'

In September 2021, Netflix released ‘The Squid Game’, a series that became a worldwide phenomenon. The project had such an impact and was so publicized that a few months ago it was revealed that Netflix is ​​developing a reality show inspired by ‘The Squid Game’. In the program, which is called ‘Squid Game: The Challenge’, different contestants play tests seen in the series and some unpublished ones. Fortunately, the fate that awaits those who lose is not so lethal.

The reality show is in full swing, but what could be a fun way for the participants to enjoy their favorite series has ended in controversy. Several contestants have explained to the sun that the recordings of the first game, ‘Red light, green light’, have been in lamentable conditions. The goal is to reach a goal, but you can only move forward when music plays. If it is done when there is none, the player is eliminated. So far so good, the problem is that The filming took place at three degrees below zero and you had to spend several hours without moving. “It was like a war zone. People left crying”says an anonymous player to The Sun. Another explains that “Even if people began to suffer from hypothermia, they stayed as long as possible because there was a lot of money at stake”. The tremendous amount of money that is opted to win is 4.56 million dollars. “There were people who came thinking they were going to become millionaires, but they left crying.”

Among the many statements of participants collected by The Sun, we find one such as “some people couldn’t move their feet because of the cold it was”; “you could hear someone yell ‘doctor’we were still for 30 minutes between takes”; “everyone was shaking, I don’t think there was heating” and “an exhausted player had to be carried on a stretcher and others had to drag themselves to the finish line”.

To distinguish between eliminated and those that are not, each one wears vests filled with artificial blood that explode, simulating that they were killed, if they have lost. Filming, which is taking place in Bedford, England, will continue next month and, although there is still no release date, the reality show can be seen on Netflix.

Netflix responds to the allegations

Once the complaints of several people about the filming of the reality show have been made public, Netflix has not been slow to respond and defend its position: “Netflix, Studio Lambert and The Garden (the production companies) consider the care of the participants one of their highest priorities. Regular breaks for toilets, water and food are standard practice on the production.” The statement adds that All the contestants were aware weeks prior to filming of the low temperature they were going to face. “While it is true that it was very cold on the set (and the participants were prepared for that), any accusation of serious injury is a lie. Every precaution was taken to ensure that the test was played in a safe manner.” the statement ends.
