If you aren't familiar with its format, it sees a bunch of contestants move into an apartment building in separate flats, only meeting each other on a social media app known as 'The Circle'.

The catch is that each person is free to either be themselves or a 'catfish' (fake persona), to attempt to become most popular on the social media site and win the show.

Here's your need-to-know on The Circle USA and it's filming location.

Surprisingly, it has been reported that The Circle USA was filmed in the same apartment building in Salford, England, as the original British series.

The building is always prepared with 12 furnished apartments for the players to live in, and also features an exercise room and rooftop lounge for them to use.

All rooms are, of course, fitted with cameras and TV screens.

The building also contains a room called 'the testimonial room', which is where blocked players go to record goodbye messages.

One of the building's features is a large circle on the outside, which is lit up with LED lights.

The location of the filming of the US version has confused some viewers, as the show used aerial shots of Chicago, Milwaukee, and England throughout the show.
