People Are Saying The Circle US Is Way Juicier Than The UK Show
Yep, the American spin-off, originally conceived by Channel 4, is finally available to watch on UK screens, after being filmed all the way back in 2019.
Much like the UK version, the series sees individuals live in confined apartments on their own, competing to be the most popular member of social media platform, The Circle, without ever meeting in person.
Players can play as themselves or as a catfish, in order to win the final prize of $100,000 (£73,130).
And despite the long wait, it certainly hasn't disappointed.
"The Circle US is so much better and juicy than the UK version!," one person wrote after watching all 12 episodes of the American show.
While another concurred: "The circle us is way better than the uk version and for some reason".
A third penned: "If you love the circle UK and have netflix, i implore you to watch the us one that's on there".
Meanwhile, a fourth chipped in: "Started watching the US version of the circle as a laugh thinking it wouldn't be as good as the UK one but I am now 110% invested".

Some of the USA cohort include Instagram model Alana Duval, 25, from Brownsville Texas, who is playing it real, and lovably sassy and camp Chris Sapphire, 30, from Dallas, Texas, who is being himself, too.
Joey Sasso, 25, from Rochester New York and Shubham Goel, 23, from Danville, California, are also going in without alter-egos. Plus, sportsman Antonio De Pina, 24, from Delaware and popular girl-next-door Samantha "Sammie" Cimarelli, 24, from Miami Florida, will also have nothing to hide.
Our first catfish comes in the form of Seaburn Williams, 29, from Boston Massachusetts - a man who is pretending to be his stunning 26-year-old girlfriend, Rebecca, instead.
"I've done my research, I know everything there is to be the perfect woman," he says smugly. We guess only time will tell.
He's joined by one other fake - 37-year-old lesbian Karyn Blanco from The Bronx, New York - who will instead be playing as younger bisexual woman named Mercedeze.
"She's fancy all the way down, and I am not, so why not make myself approachable?," she reasons. "I am like every other girl next door regardless that I dress like the flyest girl on the block." This sure looks like it's going to be interesting.
Throughout the game, more US catfishes will be jetting across the pond to enter the Salford, Manchester based building too, hoping to be crowned victorious.
Who knew a country in complete isolation would be so keen to watch others in exactly the same position for hours on end?!
Turns out The Circle could well be our next obsession...
