[Warning: This gallery contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 2 of The Circle.]

Netflix’s addictive social media-inspired reality competition series, The Circle, is officially back for Season 2! But if you haven’t tuned into Season 2’s first few episodes, you should know we’re headed into spoiler territory.

Hosted by Michelle Buteau, the streaming series has a Big Brother-meets-Catfish vibe as contestants — housed separately in one building — get to know each other solely through TV screens and profiles created on a voice-activated custom social media app called, yup, the Circle. This means there’s plenty of space to present with a fake persona, which is allowed in this twisty game. Viewers at home know who is or isn’t who they say they are, and so whether they’re gaming their fellow contestants.

Get the full rundown on the new, highly-addictive reality series on Netflix.

The season begins with eight players. At the end of each round, they’re tasked with rating each other. If a contestant doesn’t finish in the top two, there’s a chance they’ll be sent home or, in the parlance of the game, “blocked.” The goal is to land in one of the top Influencer positions and avoid being blocked for a chance to win the $100,000 grand prize.

Scroll down below to learn more about the Season 2 cast, from who’s playing with an alias and who’s already been blocked to which players landed in the finals.

From: Dallas, Texas

Alias: None

Status: Blocked!

About: This full-time substitute teacher is hoped her mathematical skills would help in The Circle. And while Terilisha also planned to utilize her self-proclaimed ability to read others to her advantage, she got too caught up in the drama, leading to a relatively early blocking.

 

The Circle Season 2 khat
Netflix

Khat

Age: 27

From: Mesquite, Texas

Alias: None

Status: Blocked

About: A professional volleyball player, Khat already has an edge with her inherently competitive attitude. She’s looking to break stereotypes and win big by being her true self in the game. Unfortunately, her lack of interest in getting to know other players on a deeper level was her ultimate downfall.

The Circle Season 2 Mitchell
Netflix

Mitchell

Age: 22

From: Conshohocken, Pennsylvania

Alias: None

Status: Blocked

About: This relative of Season 1 contestants Tammy and Eddie (they’re his mom and bother), Mitchell know s a little bit about how The Circle operates, but he’s hoping his refined people skills and authentic approach are what will win his fellow competitors over. One fun fact he chose to share? He’s a virgin if you can believe it. Ultimately, his genuine approach came across as phony to the other players, leaving him on the outs.

the circle season 2 jack
Netflix

Jack

Age: 20

From: New Haven, Connecticut

Alias: Emily and John

Status: Finalist (5th Place, shared with Lisa)

About: An astrophysics and economics student, Jack describes himself as a nerd. But he was ready to play a cutthroat game against his fellow Circle players by entering the show as a sweet female college student. Unfortunately that plan didn’t work out, but The Circle is giving him a second chance by allowing him to play under a shared alias with Lisa. By putting their minds together, Jack and Lisa remained a formidable force under the alias of John. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to win them the top prize.

The Circle Season 2 Lisa
Netflix

Lisa

Age: 42

From: Los Angeles, California

Alias: Lance Bass (yes, the one from NSYNC) and John

Status: Finalist (5th Place, shared with Jack)

About: Serving as Lance Bass’s personal assistant for the more than 14 years, Lisa is very familiar with the performer as well as the industry, which she hoped would give her an edge. But she wasn’t able to pull a fast one on the rest of The Circle players as a low ranking left her blocked. Thankfully she’s still in play under a new shared alias with Jack, and their kind approach under the profile of John has remained a strong combination, but it isn’t enough to win the game.

The Circle Season 2 Lee
Netflix

Lee

Age: 58

From: Dallas, Texas

Alias: River

Status: Finalist (4th Place)

About: This professional writer, who has authored multiple books under a female pen name, is putting his skills at fiction to the test by playing River, a young and recently single gay man. Ultimately his social game isn’t enough to win him to top prize.

The Circle Season 2 Courtney
Netflix

Courtney

Age: 28

From: Los Angeles, California

Alias: None

Status: Finalist (3rd Place)

About: This pop-culture expert says he’s a great communicator, which if true will work to his advantage. But despite using his real name, he chooses not to reveal his entertainment hosting roots though and is portraying himself as a barista. But his mindful game play isn’t enough to make him this season’s winner.

Netflix

Chloe

Age: 22

From: Essex, UK

Alias: None

Status: Finalist (2nd Place)

About: This player, who formerly appeared on Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle, is flirting it up with the other players. Will her strategy, if it is one, distract her, or will Chloe keep her eye on the prize? It would seem like the strategy almost works as she comes in a close second behind Season 2’s winner.

the circle season 2 deleesa
Netflix

Deleesa

Age: 32

From: Bronx, New York

Alias: Trevor

Status: Finalist (1st Place, Winner)

About: Confident and enthusiastic, Deleesa is entering the competition as Trevor, a single father she’s created using her husband’s photos. Will she keep her fellow players fooled long enough to reach the finish line? It would seem that she does as the player takes top honors as Season 2’s winner.
