Sapphire was one of the final five finalists on The Circle. On the show, he had popularity for being able to relate to most of the contestants and being himself.

His major ally was Mercedeze (aka Karyn Blanco) and he also had major relationships with Sammie Cimarelli, Joey Sasso, and later, Shubham Goel.

He placed 4th on the circle, before Rebecca (aka Seaburn Williams), but after Cimarelli, Sasso, and Goel.
