In a competition like Netflix’s ‘Squid Game: The Challenge,’ it is hard to predict just what kind of gameplay might help you progress further. Given that the series is based on ‘Squid Game,’ the idea that everything will be a result of a fair course of action is highly skeptical. However, that did not stop many of the players from trying their best to level the field. While a contestant’s first and foremost priority is always to look out for themselves, some did try to maintain the peace as much as possible.

Consider Roland Hannigan, AKA Player 418, whose performance in the show was certainly impressive. While the contestant was able to make crucial alliances throughout the show, he did manage to avoid painting a target on his back, something that is certainly a tightrope to walk. While Roland was ever determined to give his all in every challenge, he seemed quite hesitant about doing so by dooming someone else’s chances.

As such, it hardly surprised many that even during the last stages of season 1 of the competition, Roland was more than happy to work alongside any ideas that seemed fair for everyone. At the point when some people were certainly not averse to doing what they could to come to the top, Roland did not hesitate to encourage others not to lose their sense of camaraderie in order to find the most peaceful and fair solutions to the presented problems. Given his impressive performance, the world cannot help but wonder where the reality TV star is these days.
