‘The Circle’ Season 4: Which Spice Girls Are Catfishing on the Show?

The Circle gives most people the option to play as themselves or catfish as someone else. The season 4 trailer teased the Spice Girls somehow being involved. These are the celebrities catfishing the other players on the Netflix show.

 [Spoiler alert: This article contains spoilers from The Circle Season 4 Episode 2, “Cake Me As I Am.”]

The trailer for the fourth season teased new twists with a data breach alert. It also revealed the prize has grown to $150,000 for the winner. 

It then ended by saying the season has “more spice” with the silhouette of the Spice Girls. Fans were hesitant because they didn’t want to be tricked. Season 2 showed Lance Bass’ personal assistant, Lisa Delcampo, playing as him. She didn’t win, but she’s stayed in the game for some time.

However, season 4’s first episode showed the trailer wasn’t tricking the audience. The show got real celebrities to play this time.

The first episode had the cast rank each other. Frank Grimsley came out on top at number one. He got the power to choose who is next to enter the circle. The options were a children’s author named Jared and an aspiring fashion designer named Trey. Frank picked Jared, but he didn’t know that they were both catfish profiles. Melanie Brown (Scary Spice) and Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) will be playing as the writer.

They had no clue who they would be playing as until they entered their apartment. But once they found out about Jared, they started making his profile. 

“It doesn’t look very friendly,” Brown said. Bunton disagreed and pointed out his dimples and cheeky smile. They picked a picture of Jared with a stuffed chicken, put “single” in his profile, and described him as quirky and loyal.

The prize for the season might change

It might feel a little unfair for the cast to go up against two successful celebrities for the prize money. But the second episode revealed to Brown and Bunton that if they succeed in tricking the other players, the prize will be increased for the other players.

They seemed very excited about this. However, Brown wasn’t that confident that they’ll know everything about their character to stay in the circle. So it’s actually in everyone’s best interest to keep Jared around.

It’s hard to say if Brown and Bunton have an advantage over the competition or are at a disadvantage. Duos have previously played together, but none of them have won. It can be hard to get two people on the same page in the social game.
