Storyline

Contestants live in an apartment building, but never meet face to face. They communicate through a social media app called "The Circle." They can create a profile as themselves or make up a fake persona to play as. They regularly rank the other players based on their impressions through social media interactions, and the top rated players become influencers. The influencers get to block, or eliminate a player, until ultimately a winner is crowned.

It's Basically Big Brother, But for Popular People, But It's Fun.
4 January 2020 | by itsactuallyamandaSee all my reviews

The Circle is an unique and interesting original series from Netflix that gives the Big Brother vibe but instead of it being a game with ordinary people, we are treated with contestants who are or who have an social media following (and yes, I did my research on the contestant Instagram profiles) which I mean, it gives the show a little bit of that unique factor to it that makes it fun and exciting to watch. I do like the idea that the cast itself is diverse and have many different personalities where they can choose who they want to be which makes it so fun and overall, if you want a reality show that is different and a show where the contestants never come face to face with each other, then The Circle is one to watch.
