Participants of real-life ‘Squid Game’ series threaten lawsuit against Netflix

Two people participating in the real-life version of the Squid Game, called Squid Game: The Challenge, are considering legal action against Netflix because of the physical discomfort they experienced during filming. This intense game show is now available on the streaming service and in some ways seems to be even as challenging as its fictional predecessor.

The two contestants considering legal action have specific complaints regarding the show’s opening game. In the game “Red Light, Green Light,” contestants must dodge a robot puppet. The two contestants, who have engaged a lawyer, claim they suffered hypothermia and nerve damage during filming in Britain.

David versus Goliath

According to a press release from the law firm involved, the contestants have now filed claims for damages with Studio Lambert, a co-producer of the program. Although no lawsuit has currently been filed, the question arises as to what will happen if the creators of The Challenge do not take action on the contestants’ claims. “We can imagine that people will quickly begin to see this as a classic ‘David versus Goliath’ story,” the CEO of the law firm stated in a statement. The claims were made on the basis of health risk: the participants had to be motionless in cold conditions for long periods of time in order to remain in competition.

A representative of Squid Game: The Challenge stresses that the health of the participants is taken very seriously. He confirmed that no lawsuit has been filed by any of the participants at this time, but did not address the issue of claims sent.
