Netflix announcing its deadly hit series “Squid Game” into reality recently gained many attractions. The series will be brought into reality with some adjustments, of course where 456 players won’t have to kill anyone and the winner will be getting a whopping amount of $4.56 million. Soon after the announcement, SquidGameCasting.com was live and the reality series was available for “English-language speakers from any part of the world.”
Registration for the Squid Game Reality Show
The website for the registration had three options, UK casting, USA casting and Global casting with the minimum age of the applicant must be 21 years old. However, unlike the series, Netflix claims there are no life and death stakes, assuring ‘the worst fate is going home empty-handed.’

Recently Netflix was in the news for laying off its employees
So Netflix can lay off hella employees, not pay the creator of Squid Games a reasonable amount after the success of the series but can host a squid games reality show with the prize being 4.56 mil…— Black Trans Lives Matter (@nic_qt) June 14, 2022

Is the new reality show dehumanizing?

"The idea to make a reality version of Squid Game is perhaps a no-brainer…"— Jen Dick (@Jennifer_Dick) June 15, 2022
Almost *literally* a no-brainer. This is so, so gross. I shouldn't be surprised bc $$$, but this is such a "show me you didn't understand the thing without telling me you didn't understand the thing." https://t.co/JK9CgxxHXW
Well, that’s a funny one out there!
Does the Netflix Squid Games reality show have a Frogger like experience where you dodge Tesla cars on autopilot and if you don't get severely injured you win one???— Jesse Taylor Lewis (@torkum) June 15, 2022
Fear factor but with more money than one could dream of!

Capitalist move or marketing gimmick?
Netizens on Twitter replied, “This feels so dystopian. Turning a fictional death game into a reality show.”
Apparently Netflix is making a Squid Game reality show where hundreds of people will compete for millions of dollars.— Ashley 🍺📚🌱 (@misssashleyrae) June 15, 2022
Once again proving that we do actually live in a capitalist dystopia.
squid game getting an unnecessary second season and a tone-deaf reality show simultaneously is an exciting opener for the third act in The Death Of Cinema i cant wait to see where it goes next— dijon du jour (@dijon_dujour) June 15, 2022
Roman Gladiator or Squid Games? What’s your pick?
Users on Twitter compared the Squid Games reality show to a gladiator contest in the colosseum.
Sooner or later, Reality TV will find out about the Roman Gladiator contests at the Colosseum.— Nelahism (@nela_minded) June 15, 2022
