Industrious high school senior, Vee Delmonico, has had it with living life on the sidelines. When pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee decides to sign up for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun. But as she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition partnered with a mysterious stranger, the game begins to take a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading her into a high stakes finale that will determine her entire future.
There’s A Real Life ‘Nerve’ Game Called The Blue Whale Challenge.
A lot of social media trends or challenges have taken the world by storm these days, such as the infamous mannequin challenge, the ice bucket challenge, the running man challenge, the whisper challenge, and many more.
No matter how noble, funny, or absurd some of these challenges may be, no one could have anticipated the level of insanity the Blue Whale challenge offers.
If you’re familiar with the movie Nerve, you’d know by now the premise of the story – players would need to carry out a set of tasks in order to win and if they decided to bail out at some point of the game, their lives would be compromised and all of their lifetime savings would mysteriously ‘disappear.’
Their tasks appear innocent at first, from kissing a stranger for five seconds to trying on a pricey designer dress, but it gets more sinister and extreme towards the end – players are required to kill off each other to win.
Sure, both Emma Roberts and Dave Franco survived the challenge and had a sort of ‘happy’ ending at the end, but this wasn’t the case with the Blue Whale Challenge.
What Is The Blue Whale Challenge?
It’s basically a game, but not in a form of an app or something you can buy off a store; it’s usually shared via a link.
It is said that once you’ve clicked on the link, you’ll be redirected to a page that’ll auto-downloads certain files to indicate the start of the game. A game ‘admin’ will then be assigned and will get in touch with you.
The creepy part about it is that the admin will mysteriously gain access to your personal details such as where you live, your contact details, your family members, etc.
The admin will continuously monitor you and give out your tasks. You will then have to carry out the tasks and take photographic evidence to be submitted to the admin.
The daily tasks will last for 50 days, and among the things you will have to doi nclude carving numbers or images of whales on your body, watching highly disturbing videos, standing on top off a bridge or high rise buildings, and finally, commit suicide.
