The Circle US Season 04 Episode 05 Description
Goodbye My Friends
The final votes from the players came down to Rachel and Yu Ling, who voted for Alyssa and Rachel respectively. Since Emma and Mel/Jared did not receive the majority of the votes, they increased the prize fund by $50,000. They revealed themselves as Jared by voting for themselves. The duo was tasked with visiting another player, they visited Alyssa before leaving The Circle for good. The next day, the players received a video message from Emma and Mel/Jared. Later in the day, the players played a game. Alex/Nathan messages Crissa, attempting to create a bond due to feeling alone in the game. The players were later tasked with rating each other from first to sixth. As new players, Alex/Nathan and Rachel were not able to be rated, but could rate.
The Circle US Show Descriprion
WHAT Is The Circle?
A reality show hosted by comedian Michelle Buteau that involves contestants being trapped in a large apartment building, where they are essentially in a popularity contest and can communicate only through social media. This means that the players can fully pretend to be other people and catfish each other.
WHAT Is the Prize?
The Circle is an absolutely deranged concept for a show, so perhaps you’re wondering why any human being would voluntarily subject themselves to this. Allow me to tell you: (1) the promise of fame, duh, and (2) a $100,000 cash prize—if they win. (Oh, and the Fan Favorite receives $10,000.)
HOW Do You Win?
Contestants on The Circle are forced to rate their fellow players, and then the top-voted people (aka the “influencers”) vote to “block” (aka eliminate) their fellow contestants until there’s just one person left with the highest rating—who gets to take home $100,000! Alliances form; friends, enemies, and frenemies are made—basically, you’re getting paid to live out a social media nightmare on national television, it’s casual.
If all this sounds intriguing to you, please be advised that Netflix has old episodes of The Circle season 1 available for you to stream, and The Circle season 2 is currently airing weekly. Happy chaotic viewing!
