Meet The Circle France cast on Instagram - Ines, Lou, Cedric!

This year has felt like one continuous episode of The Circle, as Netflix has been churning out seasons from around the world week after week.

First came the American version of the British series, which aired in January 2020. Next came the Brazilian version, which aired in March. Now, we have a French edition to complete the lineup, coming to air on Thursday, April 9th.

So before it all kicks off, we thought it best to get to know the cast of The Circle France season 1. We found them all on Instagram!

We did some digging to find out more about the cast before they enter the circle. Contestants will come and go throughout the competition, so we will continue to add to the cast list as new contestants enter the game.


Maxime Merkouchenko, 24, is one of the initial contestants on The Circle France.


When he’s not starring in reality TV, Maxime is the owner of luxury properties in the south of France. Maxime owns GVV Estate, Impression De Luxe, and is the president of Sapfira Invest.

He is playing as his 25-year-old wife Valeria. She works as a jewellery designer, specialising in work with gemstones.

Together they have one son. You can find Valeria on Instagram @sapfira_vh.
