Mr Beast’s long-awaited Squid Game film has finally been uploaded on YouTube, but who won, and how much did they win?
It’s reasonable to say that Netflix’s Squid Game is the “television series of 2021,” which has become the platform’s most-streamed title and apparently earned the business $891 million in impact value.
So it was only a matter of time before fan favorite YouTuber and video producer Mr Beast, Jimmy Donaldson, recreated the lethal event with some family-friendly changes.
The video debuted yesterday, November 24th, around 4 PM Eastern Time, and has since gone viral; however, who won Mr Beast’s Squid Game video?

There had even been a succession of leaks on social media in the days and weeks preceding up to the video’s launch yesterday, November 24th. These contained a variety of screenshots and video footage from the tug-of-war game.
Despite just being posted on YouTube for 12 hours, the video has received an astonishing 27 million views and is currently ranked first on the Trending page.
WHO WON THE SQUID GAME VIDEO BY MR BEAST?
Following the delightfully dramatic Bridge game, only five contestants advanced to the final game: players 75, 79, 330, 368, 406, and 456, respectively.
However, because none of the finalists knew how to play the genuine Squid Game, the winner would be determined by a good old-fashioned musical chairs game.
Number 75 was the first to be removed, followed by 406 and 456 (the original Squid Game winner) for sitting down too soon.
Payer 368 was subsequently removed, leaving only two contestants to compete for the cash prize…330 and 79.
Mr Beast’s Squid Game video was won by player 79 after a tense final round of musical chairs!

As each of the 469 competitors was worth $10,000 at the outset of the game, Player 79 earned a stunning $456,000 (about £341,000 or €406,000).
The good news is that Mr Beast’s version of Squid Game was significantly less lethal than the hit Korean drama series, with the modern philanthropist awarding $10,000 to player 330, who finished second.
While many individuals have openly questioned the idea of a Squid Game remake, the video is currently going viral around the world.
How much money does Mr Beast Squid Game cost to Reproduce?
Mr Beast’s Squid Game is said to have cost the team $3.5 million to reproduce, with the majority of that money going toward set construction and overall production.
