After Squid Game Contestants Claim Frostbite And Other Maladies, Netflix Defends The Reality Show

Whether you love it, or you’re frustrated by it but still rely on it, Netflix is home to many bingeable TV shows and great movies now. One genre that those behind the streamer have excelled at, particularly over the past few years, is the reality show, with it now being a place where millions upon millions of viewers watch everything from dating shows like Love Is Blind, to competition series like The Circle, and Bravo-esque programs like the long-running Selling Sunset. But, the granddaddy of streamers has now had to defend an upcoming reality competition, Squid Game: The Challenge, after contestants made claims of injuries on set.

What Did Netflix Say About Injuries On The Set Of Squid Game: The Challenge?

Though Netflix is very well known for many of its reality shows, the service is also beloved for many of its scripted entries, as well. So, it makes complete sense that executives would try to capitalize on the success of both, by turning the mega-hit Korean thriller, Squid Game, into an actual competition series. Unfortunately, many of the players have now complained of frostbite and other medical issues related to the conditions under which they competed. But, Deadline reports that the streamer has issued a statement denying those allegations, which says, in part:

While it was very cold on set – and participants were prepared for that – any claims of serious injury are untrue. We care deeply about the health and safety of our cast and crew, and invested in all the appropriate safety procedures.
