Time to fake it: Take a peek at the contestants of ‘The Circle’ season 2
Over the course of 2020, viral series became more watched than ever. In the early days of lockdown after the COVID-19 pandemic was declared in March of 2020, people across the globe had nothing but time to sit at home and watch the latest shows making waves on the internet.
As a result, some series became massive hits over a short period of time. Tiger King was huge, of course, but the show wasn’t the only 2020 series to make waves.
Netflix’s The Circle was among the streaming 2020 hits to captivate audiences during the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Circle brought contestants into apartments where they couldn’t see each other, and all communicated solely on an app designed for the show. Some players were honest, while others attempted some catfishing, and streaming fans ate all of it up.
It seems the allure of The Circle is lasting, because it’s been announced The Circle season 2 is coming this spring. A new season means new contestants, and we’ve all been given a sneak peak with the drop of The Circle season 2 trailer.
Variety reported yesterday of the announcement of The Circle season 2, saying there will be eight new contestants coming to the show and competing for a chance for the $100,000 prize & title of top influencer. We’ve gathered some of the most interesting contestants set to appear on The Circle season 2 to look for hints to see who’ll be real and who’ll be catfishing this season.
The biggest buzz cast member for The Circle season 2 has to be Chloe Veitch. Chloe was on the first season of Too Hot to Handle, a similarly experimental Netflix dating reality series which gained popularity over 2020.
Chloe’s been around the block in terms of reality dating shows, but does that mean she’ll have a leg up on The Circle season 2? We’ll have to wait & see if Too Hot to Handle toughened her up for what could be a ruthless game this season.
EW reported yesterday the names & origins of The Circle season 2 cast, and with it, confirmation of its host. Comedian & actress Michelle Buteau will be coming back to host season 2.
Lee has to be the most interesting cast member on The Circle season 2; he’s a fifty-eight-year-old man who looks like he doesn’t have his Instagram curated in the same ballpark as any member of the cast (if he uses Insta at all). Lee hails from Dallas, TX, and appears very confident in The Circle season 2 trailer, he’s going to win the big prize.
Lance Bass is on The Circle season 2?! Well, not exactly. But the recently dropped trailer shows a profile on the dating app used for the show featuring the celeb’s name & face. Yes, we suppose it could be a catfish, but who’d believe Lance Bass was on the show? Our guess is anything can happen in season 2.
To millennials’ shock & horror, most contestants on The Circle season 2 don’t seem to know who Lance Bass is. When the trailer shows the Lance Bass profile, we see clips of confused contestants asking who N-S-N-Y-C is (smdh).
Courtney instills great relief for late twenty-somethings when he is as shocked as we are at their reaction to Lance’s profile. So far, we love twenty-eight year-old Courtney from LA.
The Circle season 2 will be composed of thirteen episodes and drops April 14th on Netflix with four episodes. It will continue to roll out every Wednesday with four episodes until the finale on May 5th. Are you tuning in? Let us know in the comments!
