An exhilarating three weeks of The Circle have sadly come to an end.
Alex Hobern was crowned the overall winner as his character, Kate, swooped in to claim not one but two prizes.
The devious 26-year-old won the general The Circle vote, where he was declared the most popular player on the game, as well as winning the public vote, made by Channel 4 viewers.
So how much money did The Circle’s Alex walk away with?
How Much is The Circle Prize Money?
The winner of The Circle, Alex Hobern, claimed £50,000 in prize money.
This was because Alex was voted as the most popular player on the game, following 21 days of building relationships on the social media platform while fronting as a girl named Kate.
