I can't say I know many that are in the final 39 but I hope with the buy in being quite low that a big majority of the players who cash will be more recreational players who have the chance to play at the WSOP.

with 22,374 players and a $11,187,000 prize pool, is surprising that the WSOP Colossus had a $638,880 first prize.there have been a lot of players complaining that first place did not get 10% of the overall prize pool.The first prize is 5.7% of the prize pool, but it is also 1,130 times the buy-in. In fact even the players who just miss the final table in 10-12th place will win just under 100 times their buy-in.
This is why I did not get any of the fuss about this tournament. They promoed the hell out of this and they lured in more than 20k people yet the final table is kinda dissapointing moneywise and the percentages are way off more than expected throughout the whole prizepool. It's definitely weird.
