The format for the US and UK versions of The Circle look to be very much the same.

The Circle US sees eight players move into an apartment block. However, these contestants will never meet during the competition.

Each player on the show lives in their own apartment and will communicate via ‘The Circle’ during the show.

In what is essentially a popularity contest. Throughout the series, the players have to rate one another from first to last place.

Each time a vote takes place, the players with the most votes often end up as the game’s ‘influencers’, while the lowest ranking contestants risk being ‘blocked’ from The Circle.

If you’re ‘blocked’ from The Circle you’re allowed to meet one other player face to face – and this part often provides some of the show’s juiciest moments.

Whoever wins bags themselves a hefty $100,000 – so it really is worth giving it all you’ve got.
