Squid Game: The Challenge winner Mai Whelan reveals she hasn't received $4.56 million prize money yet

Squid Game: The Challenge winner Mai Whelan has shared that she hasn’t received the prize money yet. Whelan won $4.56 million after beating 455 players on the Netflix competition series in February.

In an interview with Sunday Times, she said, “I feel like Tom Cruise in Jerry McGuire... Show me the money.” Talking about what she wants to do with the money, the 55-year-old immigration adjudicator revealed that she wants to attend the Squid Game gala night with a short haircut, a black Ralph Lauren dress, and Jimmy Choo shoes. "I still have buyer’s remorse from that, but I think it’s well deserved,” she said.

Mai Whelan also shared that she is looking for a retirement home for herself with the prize money and has charity plans too. She said, "I’m thinking about a retirement home somewhere. We don’t know where yet, and we are happy with where we are. We live on the water. It’s very peaceful.” She shared that she would be donating money to “charities for the underprivileged, wildlife, and climate change.”

Many people have responded to her claim of a 10-month delay in prize money payout and said that reportedly she is set to finally receive it as the show aired.
