The Circle Instagram Profiles Reveal Their Real Life

The UK sensation The Circle is officially a US sensation after the Netflix premiere with wanna-be influencers use the internal social media platform to climb the ranks toward $100,000. And thankfully, in the process, we get to see what all of us are really like behind the screen when we send and receive messages anonymously on social media platforms of our own. And then, there’s the catfishing, and honey child, that’s a whole other show but it’s also here.

Because things are so jam-packed in the show and everything is about curating the perfect image for the contestants to win the grand prize, we peeked into the real profiles of the Instagram contestants to learn more about them.

1. Alana Duval

Age: 25
From: Brownsville, Texas

The girl wasn’t a big hit with the other Circle contestants much, but she mentioned the TV show made her out to be someone she’s not. She maintains her love for tacos and posts mostly her modeling photos. Judging by her enormous following and engagement, she knows how to navigate the social media space.

2. Antonio DePína

Age: 24

Once a player, always a player? The pro basketball player was all about game strategy in The Circle, but his Instagram also shows his passion for seeing new destinations and travel.

The girl is authenticity all the way, not afraid to say what’s really on her mind. Like in The Circle, she’s VERY adept at navigating her social media in real life too, curating to her top-performing posts and letting her authentic moments shine with little fluff getting in the way.
