It's based on the UK Channel 4 show that started in 2014, and sees a bunch of contestants - or 'players' - move into separate flats in an apartment building and get to know each other on social media app 'The Circle'.
The winner of the show is the person voted most popular on the app - and the catch is that the players can be a 'catfish' and not play as themselves.

Who won The Circle USA?
Joey Sasso was crowned the winner, after being voted the most popular by his fellow contestants.
Speaking about to Entertainment Weekly about his decision to go on the show, Joey said: "I was hesitant just because I am an actor.
"I’ve been in the business so many years and am used to this stigma that doing reality TV means the death of your career. I turned down other reality opportunities before, but there’s never one that I heard of that’s quite like this, where I can truly just go in and represent myself. I’m not in a house with other people starting drama, getting drunk, and hooking up with people, like we’re so used to seeing."
What is the prize for winning The Circle?
Lucky Joey was awarded $100,000 prize money for winning the show.
