Based on the British show of the same name, The Circle is a social media-based competition that brings together a group of strangers who live in separate apartments and communicate with each other solely through a social media platform called The Circle.
In The Circle, the contestants are able to create their own profiles and personas and can choose to be themselves or present a different version of themselves to the other players.
Throughout the show, the contestants must participate in various challenges and vote on who they want to eliminate. The last player standing is crowned the winner. The Circle has gained popularity for its unique concept and the drama that unfolds as the contestants try to outwit and outlast one another.
So far, four winners of The Circle have been crowned with a fifth to be crowned on Jan. 18, 2023. Which contestants have been lucky enough to win the game over the years? Warning: The Circle spoilers ahead.
