DWTS Alum Joins Cast of ‘The Circle’ as a Catfish

The Circle.

Netflix A DWTS alum has joined "The Circle" season 4.

If you’re a fan of Netflix’s “The Circle,” you may be excited to hear that a former “Dancing With the Stars” alum will be taking part in the newest edition of the social experiment reality television show.

“The Circle” puts a group of people in individual apartments and allows them to communicate with one another through text-based chat only. They can talk to each other in groups or one-on-one, and are forced to build relationships without ever meeting or speaking. Some people have gone in “The Circle” as themselves, while others choose to take on a persona — going in as a catfish.

Every few days, the people in “The Circle” vote on who they like the best, and the top two people with the most votes become the influencers. These people then have a private chat where they decide which of their cast members will be sent home.

From there, the person who is eliminated is permitted to visit the apartment of one person of their choosing. The show has been a wild success for Netflix, and the streaming service has already renewed the program for a fifth season, according to TV Line.
