'The Circle' Season 4: Bru slides into Yu Ling's DMs before the influencers' ranking
Following a heart-to-heart, both Yu Ling and Bru debate whether they were right to doubt each other
With an impending "blocking" hovering over their head, forging solid alliances has become critical in 'The Circle' house. Contestants slid into each other's DMs to see whom they can trust and who they should be wary of.
Members of 'The Circle' house wake up with a lot of scheming and game plan in mind as the second round of elimination approaches. With the two new contestants Rachel Evans (playing herself) and Nathan (played by Alex Brizard) immune, the remaining contestants aim to win each other over by establishing one-on-one connections. They've only blocked one member so far, and they're curious what blocking someone who's been with them for a while will do to the group. Contestants strive to figure out if the friendships they've formed up to this point in the game of "All Is Fair in Circle War" are genuine.
With everyone sneaking into each other's DMs and acquiring the information they require, Bru approaches Yu Ling, one of his old friends from the "throuple" group chat. He also has a one-on-one talk with Nathan. While Bru approached him, hoping to gain an ally while also looking for another catfish, he finds that Yu Ling has slipped into Nathan's DMs. This surprised Bru because Yu Ling had told him the opposite of what had happened. Bru added that Yu Ling flirts a lot and tells him about their "throuple" association in his quest to engage with Nathan.
Yu Ling seems to have faith and trust in Alyssa, but not in Bru. According to her, Bru hasn't shown them much of his personality. While Yu Ling has been treating this competition like a high-stakes poker game, other entrants, like Bru, have also had their heads in the game. Bru invites Yu Ling, whom he believes has been sniffing around with his "Circle bro" Nathan, to the private chat in the hopes of finding something significant. Yu Ling immediately suspects the motive behind Bru's extremely charming message. Yu Ling becomes alarmed and tries desperately to determine whether Bru was truly hitting on her or whether he was making a joke. She expresses a desire to get to know Bru better and understand more about him. Bru discusses his struggles with self-esteem and insecurities. Yu Ling finds this amazing and claims that she, too, has struggled with confidence and insecurity.
Following a heart-to-heart, both Yu Ling and Bru debate whether they were right to doubt each other. All the flirting and opening up contributed to their charming friendship "bru-ling".
