Michelle’s The Circle game plan
When it comes to entering The Circle, many contestants opt for quite complex game plans and catfish their way to the top.
Attempting to become the group’s ‘motherly figure’, Michelle said she wasn’t planning on using a persona on the show and added: “I’m gonna be me, I don’t believe I could be anybody else but myself.“
Dog mama Orange Michelle had her work cut out during the season as she had to compete with imposter ‘Blue Michelle’.
