Player 067 Camilla Araujo Reveals If MrBeast’s ‘Squid Game’ Was Scripted
Camilla Araujo came to the public spotlight after participating in MrBeast's recreation of the Squid Game.
While the recreated competition was won by player 079, Araujo outshined the contest with her charm.
On the YouTube show, Araujo was given the number 067; hence, she is now popularly known as player 067.
Another reason people noticed Araujo on the MrBeast's show was the number assigned to her. Player 067 is a popular character in the original Korean drama series.
In the show, the character Kang Sae-byoek, otherwise known as player 067, was portrayed by Korean actress HoYeon Jung.
MrBeast's version of the show became a viral hit on YouTube, amassing millions of views within hours.
With the popularity of the adapted gig, player 067 started trending online as many people lost their patient while trying to learn about Araujo.
This led Araujo, who was limited to being an aspiring model before her newfound glory, to post a Q&A video on her YouTube channel on December 02, 2021.
During the Q&A session, Araujo was asked many questions by her curious fans, including whether MrBeast's rendition of the show was scripted.
Was MrBeast's 'Squid Game' Scripted?
Before recording her Q&A session, Araujo posted an Instagram story requesting her fans to pose questions for her.
The internet personality selected a handful of questions and responded to them in her YouTube video, which apparently is her first upload on her channel.
Araujo's YouTube channel is currently subscribed by 412,000 users, while the said video has amassed 18,272 views at the time of the writing.
The first question she hand-picked to answer was the obvious one. Araujo was asked how she was chosen to be in MrBeast's video.
In her response, the model-turned YouTuber said she is "really good friends" with some of MrBeast's video production team members.
The team members asked Araujo if she would like to participate in the recreation of the popular game depicted in the series.
Araujo told the team that she was "absolutely" ready to join the roster as a participant.
The most intriguing question followed then after as Araujo was asked if "the game was scripted."
The model took a short pause before answering the question and then denied MrBeast's show being fixed beforehand.
If it was scripted, I would have won. Or if it was scripted 456 would have won. You already know, I had a little deal with 456. And I would have gotten half of that. So, no it wasn't scripted. I wish — that would be better for me.
Camilla Araujo's Beef with Player 431
Araujo's fans were eager to know what exactly happened between her and player 431 as the talk of their beef started making rounds on the internet.
According to Araujo, she was together with player 431 since the beginning of the filming.
Over time, the production team noted how they were "super close" with one another on the show's set.
The show's creator and host, MrBeast, even revealed Araujo and player 431, whom the model referred to as Britney, to be roommates and best friends.
However, the supposed beef can be traced back to when the two were paired to play the marbles.
As per Araujo, Britney explained how player 067 faired in the Marbles game during the Netflix show and told Ajauro to play along the lines.
In the Korean drama, player 067's friend sacrificed her chance to advance so that she would move further in the game.
But unfortunately, Britney did not perform as planned, resulting in Player 067's elimination from MrBeast's show.
Araujo clarified Britney's act did not "ultimately ruin our friendship," and therefore, the two are still on good terms.
"Everybody calm down. We are all good. She is all good. There is no beef," clarified Ajauro and asked her followers to "stop trying to start things."
