'The Circle,' Netflix's iconic reality show, has returned for a fourth season. 'The Circle' will have a completely new cast, new apartments, and an even more surprising catfish like a commercial banker-turned-frat boy, Alex Brizard.

The Season 4 trailer has been out, and it seems that fans can expect plenty of twists from the new season of 'The Circle.' The show will air new episodes on Netflix every week, with different stages of the competition developing as the weeks pass. Michelle Buteau, a comedian, will return as the show's host. The show's production company, Studio Lambert, called the upcoming season "the spiciest season yet." Season 4 is expected to include more catfishing, drama, money, and surprises. The winner will receive a hefty $150,000 prize. Every year, a fresh batch of contestants joins the show, and this year is no exception.

Who is Alex Brizard?

Alex Brizard, 28, is a commercial banker from Arizona. He also co-hosts the podcast 'Two Dudes Watch Cartoons.' Alex characterizes himself as a "professional nerd" on Instagram. In his introduction, he stated that he is similar to a catfish in everyday life because his personal and professional lives are so dissimilar. That's why he'll play Nathan Alex Brizard, a 22-year-old digital developer he describes as a "hot, youthful, happy, fresh-out-of-college frat dude."

In 'The Circle,' how does "catfishing" work?

Catfishing is a fully legal tactic. The Circle's game isn't "guess who's a catfish"; it's much more entertaining than that — or it can be. 'The Circle', as host Michelle Buteau states in the intro, is "the ultimate popularity game," taking place solely on (an incredibly insulated type of) social media. The contestants rank each other in between private talks, group chats, and games designed to assist the players to get to know each other. The two most popular players are assigned the role of "Influencer"; the Influencers collaborate to eliminate another participant. So it doesn't matter if somebody is a catfish as long as they rank you favorably (or fight to protect you if they're chosen as an Influencer.) Catfishing is merely a strategy, similar to playing a secret immunity idol. When candidates spend all of their time attempting to determine whether or not someone resembles their profile photo, it's not only monotonous and uninteresting for viewers - it's also a lousy strategy.
