Everything To Know About The Cast

From the lovable Frank to the charismatic Bru and the quirky Yu Ling, the cast members on season 4 of The Circle are full of personality. While the show introduces each cast member with a few details about their real lives, there is only so much that is revealed. For example, did you know that Crissa was already a celebrity who was not only in the Harlem Globetrotters but also appeared on TV shows? Or that Alyssa once worked with Lance Bass?

There are plenty more interesting facts to learn about this latest set of players who were vying for the largest prize sum of $150,000.


9 Yu Ling Is A Savage x Fenty Anbassador

Already with a big social media following prior to joining the show, Yu Ling Wu had snagged a big deal before joining the cast: she is an influencer for the Savage x Fenty brand, according to Marie Claire. The brand is, of course, famously owned by singer and entrepreneur Rihanna, and Yu Ling will be working on various content partnerships.

Yu Ling, who was quite popular in the game and made many of the best friendships on The Circle season 4, also works as a social media and brand marketing consultant. She uses both Instagram and YouTube channels to show off her talented and creative make-up looks.

8 Frank Is A Licensed Therapist

The fun-loving Frank Grimsley quickly emerged as both a fan and cast favorite and was the eventual winner of the season. He is a body-positive content creator on social media with a healthy following that would firmly put him in the influencer category. But he is also a licensed therapist.

Based on his job title as an “influencing social worker,” it is presumed that he works as a social worker. He also works with brands on social media like Adobe CCS and Ciroc.

7 Alyssa

Alyssa was very open about her career working as an assistant to a sex therapist. She also alluded to her work as a social media advisor for the brand Pleasure Muse by the therapist she works for.

But one position she did not mention on the show is that Alyssa was previously an advisor for Lance Bass’ production company, according to her LinkedIn page. Interestingly, she is the second person tied to Bass to participate in The Circle: in season 2, the former N’ Sync Boy bander’s personal assistant Lisa Delcampo played, trying to catfish as Bass himself.

6 Crissa Was Already A Celebrity

Crissa already had celebrity status as a former Harlem Globetrotter going by the name of Ace. She still shows her amazing basketball skills via social media channels like Instagram and TikTok and works as an actor as well. It’s no surprise she had the most Instagram followers of all The Circle season 4 players from the get-go.

In fact, fans of the Peacock series Girls5eva might recognize Crissa for her small cameo in a second season episode of the show, where she is spinning a basketball on her finger during the scene. Additionally, she works as a model and comedian.

5 Bru Has Interviewed Some Huge Celebrities

Fans knew that Bru – one of the most likable players on The Circle season 4 – is a famous radio host with a massive social media following. But interestingly, no one in the cast recognized who he was except for John. But he could not reveal that, because he was playing as his mom Carol who would not be within the demographic of people who would most likely recognize Bru.

In real life, Bru has attended major Oscars parties and interviewed plenty of celebrities like Ed Sheeran and Carrie Underwood. Fans might not also realize that the radio station he works for specializes mainly in country music.

4 Parker’s Dad Is Involved With The Caitlyn Jenner Foundation

Even though Parker did not do a great job trying to play as her 56-year-old father Paul, she managed to make an impact on the show. Fans found it hilarious that she made so many blunders, including not knowing what a memoir was nor who Rod Stewart is. Both were dead giveaways that she wasn’t who she was claiming to be.

Interestingly, the real Paul is somewhat of a celebrity. Indeed, one of Parker’s first Instagram posts depicting her with Kylie Jenner. Paul, meanwhile, also posted a photo of himself with Parker and Caitlin Jenner back in 2018.

3 Rachel Is Already A TV Personality

Rachel isn’t just a ghosthunter by trade: she is also a pretty well-known one. She regularly appears as a commentator on the series Paranormal Caught on Camerawhich airs on the Travel Channel.

The show features a panel of experts who analyze footage of paranormal findings and try to explain what might have been going on. As per the IMDb page, Rachel is credited with having appeared on 22 episodes from 2019-2020, solidifying her reputation as a bona fide expert in the field.

2 Alex Has A Podcast About Cartoons

Alex, who was catfishing as a much younger frat boy named Nathan, is actually a self-professed nerd who loves Star Wars, Marvel, and video games. Indeed, his job actually involves hosting a podcast along with his best friend called Two Dudes Watch Cartoons where they literally just watch cartoons and talk about it.

He also livestreams Pokémon games on Twitch, making him the complete opposite of the person he was claiming to be on The Circle. Even though he didn’t make it to the finals, Alex ranks among the best catfishes on The Circle. He not only completely changed his looks but also his personality.

1 DeLeesa Bet Trevor To Go On The Show

Fans already recognized Trevor’s face since they saw it constantly during the second season of the show. That was only because his wife DeLeesa, who won the season and played one of the best strategic games on season 2 of The Circle, (and arguably of any season) went into the game pretending to be him. But what fans might not have known is that one of the reasons he decided to go on the show was because of a bet between him and his wife. The bet was to see if he could play a female catfish as well as she played a male one, according to Distractify. While he didn’t win, he did place second, which suggests he had a pretty great game.

When she played as Trevor, DeLeesa managed to make him popular among both the ladies and the guys. Trevor played as a woman named Imani, using one of DeLeesa’s friend’s photos.
