Netflix has now decided to create a reality show based on the series called 'Squid Game: The Challenge' with one slight change being that all participants will survive at the end, but only one will still walk away with the prize money.

While the show premise itself is already quite unique, what makes it even more interesting is the prize money, which is $4.56-million (roughly R82-million), and is the largest cash prize in history.

The series is set to premiere in November 2023.

Tune in to 'The Drive with Rob & Roz', on weekdays from 16:00 - 19:00. Stream the show live here or download our mobile app here.
