Get the popcorn ready, reality TV lovers! The Circle season 3 officially premiered on Netflix today and we’re getting to know a new group of interesting and outgoing characters. Just like with previous installments, the third season includes a few catfishes and some genuine people. Only the first four episodes have dropped, but we’ve seen a couple of blockings already!

Spoilers ahead for The Circle season 3.

The first batch of episodes introduces us to contestants such as Calvin, a private chef from Miami, Matthew, a fitness coach from Long Island, Ruksana, and a wife and mother from New Jersey. We also get to meet a sister duo named Ava and Chanel, who are posing as just Ava. The two are seemingly attached at the hip and even wear matching outfits!

Loud and bold would certainly be two words to describe the pair, but unfortunately, the other players aren’t too big on what they’ve seen.

Who’s the first player to get blocked on The Circle season 3?

The first blocking takes place at the end of the season 3 premiere, and the episode concludes with Ava and Chanel being eliminated. However, in a major surprise twist, the two sisters get to stay when they’re told they can keep playing only if they catfish as someone else in the competition! That’s right — they get another chance but have to betray someone in the process. So what do they do?

Well, as you’d probably expect, Ava and Chanel decide to stay and keep playing as one of their castmates. They decide on Michelle, a mom and stand-up comedian from South Carolina. In the next couple of episodes to come, Ava and Chanel try to convince the other players that they’re the real Michelle, all while the real Michelle is confused and hurt.

In the end, the real Michelle ends up being the next player blocked, and Ava and Chanel make it to the next round. The contestants truly believe the sister duo is the real Michelle, which is pretty impressive work on their part!

Episode 4 ends with Kai having to block someone in person. In the final moments, we see her walking through the hallway and into Ava and Chanel’s room! It looks like the pair is getting blocked again, but we won’t know for sure until we get the next episodes.

Keep watching The Circle season 3, which drops new episodes weekly on Wednesdays!
