Meet Phalisia Boothe, Player #229 On Netflix’s Squid Game: The Challenge
During the first few games, Phalisia Boothe stayed well away from the limelight and this worked wonders as she avoided anyone noticing her intelligence. She followed this strategy because she wanted to prove not only to herself but also to her loved ones that anyone can do anything they really put their mind to.
Early on in the game, Phalisia also connected with Tolbert (player 278). Interestingly, they both kept their heads low by merely observing people for the first half of the game before making their presence known in the most explosive manner, with Phalisia eliminating three others. This was definitely one of the power moves loved by the audience.
On the show, Phalisia also more than once gushed about her immediate family “genuinely” rooting for her.

I can’t get enough of you, I will always be into you! ❤️🌹”.
Phalisia told the cameras on the Netflix show that she felt guilty for having to leave her wife and daughter behind for weeks on end and yet, she said, she found peace in the fact she was doing this for them.
