The Circle USA is a remake of the Channel 4 version which originally aired in the UK. The premise of the US series, which is dubbed Big Brother meets Catfish, is the same as the original. Contestants live in individual apartments and compete to be the most popular without ever meeting.

Via the social media app and their profiles, the players  can portray themselves however they choose. They can be themselves or pose as someone entirely different to raise their popularity. The contestants all rate each other based on their profiles and some are left blocked. In the finale, whoever is the highest rated wins the jackpot prize of US $100,000.
