With 456 players, Squid Game: The Challenge boasts the largest cast in the history of reality television.
While hundreds of contestants have failed to garner any screentime before their eliminations, a handful of eye-catching players have managed to stand out.
Australian model Jordan Levoux has been impossible to miss with his shaggy ’80s surfer haircut and moustache.
Viewers have flocked to social media to point out the blonde player, with one posting, ‘They couldn’t have picked the most stereotypical-looking Aussie to cast.’
‘I’m on episode 4 of the new Squid Game so don’t tell me if this changes but how boring do you have to be as a person to have a wiiiiild blond mullet and moustache and not for a second be a talking head,’ wrote another.

‘Player 222 from squid game the challenge… I NEED U,’ gushed one admirer.
Another joked, ‘Player 222 on Squid Game: The Challenge is not a real person.’
Jordan is indeed a real person and works as a barista and swimming instructor in Sydney.
According to his Instagram, the 29-year-old is also a model who has appeared in Perfect Man magazine.

In an interview with Fifi, Fev & Nick this week, Jordan admitted that he got cast on Squid Game: The Challenge after seeing the casting notice at his modelling agency.
‘Just through some agencies where you can pick up acting and modelling gigs it sort of just came across my desk and I just saw the big cash prize of [$4.65million] and was like, “I could use that!” So I just applied for it,’ he explained.
Squid Game: The Challenge may be based on fiction – but this show is all reality, as competitors fight it out for a $4.56 million cash prize.

On the surface, the show is seemingly identical, with eerily similar games, rooms, and a shedload of contestants, who are mending and breaking relationships to come out on top.
Squid Game fans can expect to see a whole host of games that they recognise from the original, including the infamous Red Light, Green Light, Sugar Honeycombs and Hopscotch, along with brand new games too.
Squid Game: The Challenge is currently airing worldwide on Netflix.
