'The Circle' Season 4: Yu Ling questions Alyssa's bond with Bru after Crissa's exit
Yu Ling seeks a new ally in 'The Circle' house after in-person blocking Crissa 'Ace' Jackson. With new competitors on the block, Yu Ling tries both new and old water.
Yu Ling was tasked with informing Crissa of her elimination as soon as she was named the new influencer on 'The Circle.' When they finally met in person, a good deal of baggage were opened, and many questions were answered. Crissa felt betrayed and wanted to know why she had been blocked because she thought she had a good relationship with Yu Ling and Frank. Yu Ling admits that she had her back until Alyssa turned the table.
Alyssa persuaded Yu Ling to eliminate Crissa because she "holds her cards too close to her chest." Crissa, in her defense, claims she always got the impression Alyssa didn't like or trust her. She also mentioned how Alyssa and Bru perceived her as a threat. This worried Yu Ling because Alyssa had saved Bru right away while they were discussing who should be blocked. She also adds how much they adore one other, even though they are in the same "throuple" gang. Crissa suggests that Yu Ling must protect Frank and Nathan and get rid of Bru and Carol. Yu Ling tells Crissa that she will not be influenced by anybody else in the future (after she got persuaded by Alyssa and got Crissa eliminated). With the ensuing conversation in the group chat, Alyssa realizes that Yu Ling is not thrilled with their choice of blocking Crissa, considering that a real catfish is still out there.
Yu Ling seeks other contestants to see if she can create a strong alliance with them after realizing she couldn't trust Alyssa any longer. Yu Ling messaged Frank and spilled some tea. She informs Frank how Carol reassured both Alyssa and Yu Ling that she was the one who saved them from the first blocking, even though Frank was involved in the decision-making at the time. Frank sees right through Carol and tells Yu Ling that he never wanted Alyssa or Yu Ling to leave. In the previous elimination, Paul (played by Parker Abbott) and Yu Ling were at the bottom of the table, and Carol and Frank agreed to block Paul.
Frank tells Yu Ling that he believes Rachel is a genuine person and that they should include her in the chat. Yu Ling, who is already impressed with Rachel for calling out Carol in the roast, adds her to the conversation. Rachel tells how she found the whole "Momma Carol" thing to be very branding, which is why she'd like to have her guard up around Carol. Finally, Yu Ling, Frank, and Rachel create a new alliance after a good heart-to-heart conversation and much dissing of Carol and the other contestants.
