‘Squid Game — The Challenge ‘ Wins Best Reality Category At BAFTA TV Awards


Squid Game — The Challenge has won the Reality category at the BAFTA TV Awards.

The UK-produced Netflix show beat off competition from shows such as Banged Up and Married At First Sight. A competition version of Korean drama Squid Game, it pitted 456 payers against each other in a big to win a massive cash prize.

The challenges ranged from the infamous “Red Light Green Light” from the 2021 drama, in which contestants had to avoid moving while in the eyeline of a horrifying giant doll, to new ones based on children’s games such as Battleship. One player ultimately walked away with $4.56M.

The show comes from The Traitors producer Studio Lambert and The Garden, a rare co-production between two major British unscripted producers from different production groups.

The Traitors won last year, when the the category was known as Reality and Constructed Factual.

The awards are taking place today (May 12) in London at the Royal Festival Hall. Romesh Ranganathan and Rob Beckett are once again hosting, with scores of the UK’s biggest stars in attendance.
