MrBeast’s long-awaited Squid Game has finally been unleashed, pitting 456 contestants against each other for a massive $456,000 cash prize.
In November 2021, MrBeast promised fans a full-scale recreation of the Netflix cultural phenomenon, Squid Game. As someone who constantly delivers on their word in superfluous fashion, this promised to be a truly awe-inspiring re-do that would make Squid Game creator Hwang Dong-hyuk proud.
Here’s more on how to watch the remake, and the reception the massive project has received thus far.
Who Won MrBeast’s Squid Game remake?
MrBeast’s Squid Game rendition finally aired on November 24, featuring a whopping 456 contestants in some elaborately designed sets that mirrored the hit Netflix show almost exactly.
The YouTuber’s version of events featured all of the classic games from the series, albeit with one major substitution for the final challenge in the form of musical chairs.
Number 079 ended up taking the $456,000 cash prize – although player 456 managed to stay alive right up until the final game.
Just a few hours after being uploaded, MrBeast’s highly-anticipated Squid Game rendition has already garnered over 4.7 million views and counting, with comments full of praise for the creator’s latest high-flying project.
