Since The Circle US kicked off on Netflix on Wednesday, January 1st, it has quickly drawn in mega fanbase. Fans are loving the dystopian-styled reality series across the pond and we’re currently in the heat of the game.

Already, four contestants have been blocked from The Circle and there are still catfishes in the midst. With the last four episodes dropping on Netflix next Wednesday (January 15th), it’s still anyone’s game.

Alex Lake joined the series in episode 4 after Antonio DePina was blocked and has proven himself popular amongst the ladies.

So, who is Alex? Here’s everything you need to know about the Angeleno who’s catfishing the group!

He lives in LA with his two cats, Pawses and Paloma, and his partner Gina Röckenwagner. Gina is also an artist. She is a knit designer, quilt maker, and textile arts wiz.

Alex or Adam?

Alex decided to play as stereotypical hot LA surfer dude ‘Adam’. The thinking was that if Alex combined his brains and personality with Adam’s good looks, they’d be the ultimate package.

However, things haven’t gone as smoothly as Alex may have hoped.

When attempting to flirt with the female players, ‘Adam’ has fallen flat on numerous occasions. Many fans have joked about how convinced Alex is that his catfishing is successful, when in reality, all of the other players are sceptical of him.

It’s no surprise that most of the players on The Circle have gained a tonne of followers since appearing on the show. However, Alex hasn’t hit Insta fame the way Sammie or Miranda have.

Sammie now has over 80,000 followers with brand partnerships with the likes of PLT!
