‘The Circle Brazil’ is a reality competition show that follows nine contestants as they live in the same building and perform various challenges to be crowned the most popular “influencer” and take home, a cash prize of $300,000.00 Brazilian reals ($64,500 U.S.). However, the contestants are restricted from communicating face to face and can only interact with each other via their digital profiles on an eponymous social media app. Also, they are even allowed to pose as a catfish, i.e., adopt any fake identity on their online profile.
