A part of the community has been left awestruck by player 67 from Episode 1 of Jimmy “MrBeast” Donaldson’s real-life version of Squid Game.
After the hit Netflix series, Squid Game, was released in September 2021 and broke multiple viewership records, MrBeast announced plans to create a real-life version of the show. After making the announcement in mid-October, it took the creator more than a month to complete the sets.
MrBeast later revealed that he had spent more than $3.5 million on the project, with around $1.5 million going into prizes. After the first episode was uploaded, the internet has responded by fawning over player 67 from MrBeast’s version of Squid Game.

It seems as if some of the most important player numbers have been chosen after careful consideration by MrBeast. Players 001, 67 and 456 all bear close resemblance to the actual characters with the same numbers on the show.
