‘The Circle’ AKA ‘The Circle US’ is a reality show based on the original British series of the same name. In the show, the contestants are isolated in individual apartments, from where they can interact with each other only through the specialized social media platform called “The Circle.” They can either choose to be themselves or make up a persona for the duration of the series. Every now and then, the contestants are asked to rate each other in order to become the “Influencers” of the Circle, thus, gaining the power to “block” the contestant of their choice.
The people who are “blocked” get eliminated, and their identity is revealed to the other players; the remaining contestants have to try and win people over to stay in the game. In the finale, the player with the highest ratings wins the grand prize of $100,000. While the first season introduced interesting people from across the United States to a global audience, you must be curious to know what they are up to now. Here is all that you want to know!
