'The Circle' Season 4: Steamy texts exchanged as catfishes try making solid alliances
In the third week of 'The Circle,' the flirt game is stronger than ever
This week, Netflix's 'The Circle' returns with all-new episodes. Every episode brings new twists and turns for the contestants, resulting in considerable chaos and even more drama. With some participants playing themselves and others as 'catfishes,' who will have their hearts broken, and who will succeed in securing their position in the game?
The contestants are well into the task of forging strong alliances in the game, with some desiring a little more on the side. Yu Ling, a 25-year-old marketing consultant from San Francisco, has been flirting with newcomer Alex Brizard's catfish profile Nathan since she was trying to figure out if Nathan was the profile Spice Girls were using to confuse the other participants. When the Spice Girls disclosed that they were behind the profile 'Jared,' the possibility of Nathan being a possible catfish completely faded from Yu Ling's mind. Yu Ling decides to give the flirt game between her and Nathan another go after having a private talk with the other girls in the group.
Alex is a actually a commercial banker from Scottsdale, Arizona, who entered the game as the catfish, Nathan, a 22-year-old frat 'dude' fresh out of college. Yu Ling had stated in an earlier episode confessional: "Nathan is younger than me, you know, but we could definitely flirt with Nathan. Just be like 'Hi! Are you into like s**y older girls?' I would happily flirt with Nathan if that means I can get him on my side." Her courting was always obvious, as she spoke of "blushing hella hard" and nicknamed him "a snack" and "mad cute." He understood she was interested in Nathan's profile and flirted back to seek her friendship.
In a confessional, he stated: "Hahaha...I feel like I'm bit of an evil genius. Nikki [his girlfriend] if you're watching this, do not kill me. It's for the money..It's all for the money." Although Yu Ling was certain Nathan was not a member of the Spice Girls, she believed his profile and mistook him for a genuine youngster flirting with her. In recent episodes, the two have taken things to the next level by sending each other "hot" images of themselves. Yu Ling, who believes Nathan is a young man who is genuinely interested in her, is in for a surprise. Nathan, on the other hand, is doing quite well, as his attempt to gain Yu Ling's trust has been a total success. After spending the night attempting to woo each other, they were quickly slammed with another ranking game, followed by an elimination round in which one contestant is 'blocked.' Surprisingly, the flirting worked well for Nathan, as Yu Ling wound up being one of the influencers who ends up saving Nathan!
However, Yu Ling and Nathan aren't the only ones flirting through private chats. Trevor, aka Imani, is seeking an alliance with Eversen, who is always joyful. According to Imani, a girl like her would have feelings for a guy like Eversen. To protect her cover and forge a solid alliance along the way, Imani engages in a steamy interactions with Eversen, who, on the other hand, is head over heels in love with Imani. We can only expect things to go well for Imani (catfish) if things have gone well for Nathan (another catfish).
