However, fans are describing that the reality spin-off is exactly the same as the TV series minus the deaths and killings. Although the show doesn’t murder its losing participants, early reports from contestants that lost in the initial Red Light Green Light game suggest that the filming conditions are extremely brutal.

Squid Game Players Claim At Least 10 Players Fainted

According to various players, medics made it to the show’s set on Monday after contestants fainted due to freezing temperatures. Many claimed that at least 10 people collapsed during the filming.

“Medics took ages to reach the players because producers were worried about the camera shots being ruined. As a solution, masked people in pink jumpsuits were sent out on the floor with black coffins and positioned themselves to block out the medics attending to the fallen player- all while the rest of the contestants remained frozen in place,” said an ex-contestant.

The show is currently being filmed at Bedford’s Cardington Studios in England which was previously a hangar on a former Royal Air Force base.

Is Squid Game Rigged Towards High-Profile Participants?

Now several anonymous former participants, as reported by ComicBook, have claimed that the show is rigged. One of these contestants claimed, “It was just the cruelest, meanest thing I’ve ever been through. We were a human horse race, and they were treating us like horses out in the cold racing and the race was fixed.”

Many former contestants also alleged that the show is actually skewed toward high-profile participants. This includes the Instagram and TikTok influencers that are a part of the show. These high-profile contestants were completely mic’d up and had rules bent in their favor. On the other hand, several of the eliminated contestants were given dummy microphones.
