The opening game, Red Light Green Light, showcased Kyle’s prowess as he completed the deadly challenge successfully.

However, it wasn’t just his physical abilities that drew attention. Kyle had a good bond with fellow contestant Stephen Lomas.

However, the nature of ‘Squid Game: The Challenge’ has its own protocols. He was eliminated in the second game. After the elimination, he reveals that he was underestimated,

“I will say that, no matter what, the mullet, the redneck, uh, the country accent, in my opinion, is always viewed as maybe a little bit more less intelligent than, uh, possibly, you know, other northern or even western of Kentucky kind of states.”

Kyle’s Life After the Challenge

Presently, Kyle resides in Floyd County, Kentucky. On the show, he was ragged about being a Kentucky resident, making fun of his accent and appearances.

He said,

“I can almost see it sometimes in people’s faces with my accent,”


“They’re almost like, ‘Yeah, this guy’s probably not that smart.’ But yeah, I can definitely play off that anytime I like to, you know, get an advantage. If I see the opportunity, I’m gonna seize it.”

Whatever people may say, he is proud of his state.

Kyle works in Customer Services and keeps a low social media profile. Throughout the competition, Kyle remained true to himself, defying expectations.
