The Circle

British Reality Show

The Circle is a reality television series which originated in the United Kingdom.

The show is about a group of contestants who move into an apartment building, but do not meet face-to-face. Instead, they communicate through a voice-activated messaging system called "The Circle". Players can choose to be themselves or lie and pretend to be a fake person.

Throughout the series, the players will "rate" each other. The two highest-rated players become "influencers" and get to choose someone to eliminate. During the finale, the contestants rate each other one final time, where the highest rated player wins the game and the cash prize. Some versions of the show also feature a "Fan Favourite" award in which viewers vote for their favourite player to receive to a smaller cash prize.
