The US versions of the first three seasons of The Circle on Netflix were a huge hit with audiences. So, they returned with new episodes calling it a season 4 on 4th May of 2022. The Circle US like old times sees contestants battle it out on ‘The Circle’ app to become the most liked user, and players can play either as themselves or someone else. One of its contestants is John Franklin and he was going into ‘The Circle’ as his mother Carol.
In the meantime, here’s everything you need to know about John who is “so stocked” to be a part of The Circle.
Meet John Franklin aka Carol On The Circle
John Franklin appears in this game on Netflix as a catfish named Carol. Carol is his mother and he reasoned he is becoming her because the most popular person in every Italian family is the mom. He also picked to play his mom because he knows everything about her, her favorite tea, her favorite artist, and even the fact that he is her favorite child among his siblings.
As for the prize money, it has been increased to $150K with players rating each other one last time in the finale to see who is crowned the winner.
One of the most important rules to keep in mind is that players must rate each other through a popularity-based ranking process. And those labeled as “influencers” have the power to decide who is going to be eliminated next.
Upon getting eliminated, real identities get revealed to the other players in the game.
Then, just as the season 4 twist, Netflix also hinted that the Spice Girls would play a part in the season.
