Official WebsiteFacebookbird, new, square, twitter icon

Last week, episode 8 ended with the new players Ed & Tammy Eason entering the Circle as "Ed", joining original players Sammie, Joey, Seaburn aka "Rebecca", and Shubham as well as new entries Bill & Sean. The following recap summarizes events between episodes 9 & 12.

Sean has decided to send a real picture of herself to Chris, Sammie, and Seaburn, telling them that everything she has said has been true.

RATINGS #5: This time, whoever was in the bottom would be automatically blocked. As Ed is the newest in the Circle, he can neither rank nor be ranked.
- 8th: Bill (BLOCKED)
- 7th: Adam
- 6th: Sean
- 5th: Sammie
- 4th: Joey
- 3rd: Chris
- INFLUENCERS: Shubham (2nd), Rebecca (1st)

HANGOUT #5: This is the fourth time for Shubham, while it's the first time for Rebecca.
- BLOCKED: Adam, who reveals himself to be Alex, first to SEaburn, then to everyone else. Amazing how they found out that each other were catfishes. Bill was afforded no such luxury.

New day, and Sean changed all her pictures to her real photos.

APP #8: STATE YOUR CASE - State your case as to why you should win over your biggest rival. The "rival" would then have a chance to rebute.

RATINGS #6: This time, whoever ranked first would become a Superinfluencer, making the sole decision to block. That person would then have to visit the apartment of the person they wished to block.

APP #9: MOST LIKELY - Players are given a "most likely to" statement, and how they would answer is sent to the Circle Chat.

RATINGS #7: This is the final rating. The player who is at the bottom would automatically be blocked. The result of this rating would not be revealed until finale night.
- BLOCKED: Ed, who revealed themselves to Sammie.

Before the rest of the ranking was revealed, the five remaining players - Shubham, Sammie, Rebecca, Joey, and Chris - all met each other for the first time up close. Of course, everyone expecting "Rebecca" to show up got... well, Seaburn.

- 5th: Seaburn
- 4th: Chris
- 3rd: Sammie
WINNER: Joey Sasso

Rebecca, Ryan, Sean

ROUND 1: Arts & Crafts, Cha-Ching, Mother Earth, Staying Healthy

No commonalities this round as the Scuba Divers lead, 30-20.

ROUND 2: Architecture, Beauty Tips, In the Kitchen, Words & Grammar

Scuba Divers have a perfect round to lead, 350-40. Fierce Educators are left with this in Beauty Tips - According to "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy", "spray, delay, walk away" is the best method to do what: a) Apply cologne b) Apply deodorant c) Deodorize your shoes? They say A... RIGHT for 200.

WRITE-IN ROUND: Fun & Games, Science, The Internet, Good Eats
- Fierce Educators: GOOD EATS - What fettuccine dish made with butter & Parmesan cheese was named for a Roman restauranteur whose last name was di Lelio? They say "Alfredo"... YES!
- Scuba Divers: FUN & GAMES - In a standard deck of Bicycle playing cards, if you drew a "one-eyed jack", you'd be holding a Jack of Spades or a Jack of what other suit? They say clubs... to the Fierce Educators who had the same guess. It was the Jack of Hearts.
- Fierce Educators: THE INTERNET for the win - You can choose "It's complicated" as a relationship status on what social media platform? They say Facebook... that wins it, 800-350!

BONUS ROUND: Tish gets five but misses the state that can claim the most Miss America winners with five (New York). Ashakia gets another, but misses the type of flying that must be done 8 of the total 40 hours needed to get your private pilot's license (cross-country). Katara still has a pass.
- What is the oldest designated state park in the US: Yosemite, Niagara Falls, or Grand Canyon? She uses her pass. It was Niagara Falls.
- How many baby teeth does a human mouth contain: 20, 25, or 30? She says 20 for the win... YES!

JEOPARDY! ROUND: Famous & Historic Women, Easy As A_B_D, Trees, Literary Mashups, Team America, World Police

Veronica starts with $200 Famous & Historic Women, where Laura finds the Daily Double under $800. She wagers half of her stash, $600, on this: let's tell of her & nothing but her--she was born a slave in the 1790s & once freed, sold a book of her "Narrative". "Who is Sojourner Truth?" That's right... but Harriet Tubman drops her to $600. She recovers to $6000 to $3800 for Oishee. Veronica has $3600 and the first crack of the board at...

DOUBLE JEOPARDY!: US Representatives, Composers, What Type of Machine Am I?, Netflix & Chill, Border Rivers, Backronyms

... with $400 Netflix & Chill, finding the first Daily Double under $800 Compsers. She wagers $3000 on this Video: if you visit this country, you can enter the room where Edvard Grieg did his composing in the home he built. "What is Norway?" RIGHT for $11,800! She also finds the other under $1600 Border Rivers. She wagers $3000 on this: the only river that serves as part of a national border in the Caribbean is the Artibonite River on this island. "What is Dominican Republic?" That was the country, the island was Hispaniola, dropping her to $10,400. She ends with that much to Laura's $8000 and Oishee's $6600.

FINAL JEOPARDY! in "Children's Literature": Einstein's Theory of Relativity & Max Planck's Quantum Theory inspired this book that won a 1963 Newbery Medal. Correct response: what is "A Wrinkle in Time"?

Oishee is right... but so is Veronica to win $16,001, giving her $68,001 for three!

Safety vested Beverly gets Curtain #2 and the chance to call a treasure hunter, a captain, or someone named Pierre. She calls the Captain, who says "Beverly can join him on an excurrrrrrsion." Second clue comes from a random guy named Pierre, who says something about being on a ship. Will she keep the curtain or take Curtain #1? She keeps her curtain. Behind #1… a trip to Brazil (7n @ Hilton Baja Rio de Janiero & Hilton Rio de Janeira Copacabana) worth $11,692. "I'm about to get Zonked." Unless you take $500… She does. Behind her curtain, a PIRATE SHIP! (ZONK!)

Lauren the Dorothy (Tampa, dog walker) & Aimee the Egg (editor at a newspaper) each get $500.  If Lauren wants a Mini-Curtain, she'll have to give Aimee her $500. She takes her money. Aimee gets the Mini-Curtain… and a new washer/dryer worth $3107! Next up, a Big Box. She can give Lauren the Big Box or the Mini-Curtain/$500. She keeps the money, and Lauren gets a trip to Lake Tahoe (4n @ Landing Resort & Spa) with luggage worth $4780! Now one final deal – keep what you have or trade for the Black Box, either $10,000 or a Zonk. Lauren keeps her cash and trip. Aimee goes for the box. Inside the Black Box… POPCORN JEWELRY! (ZONK!)

Supermom Jill is playing for a SUBARU IMPREZA worth $20,148 in ACCELERATOR. First ball launched… goes to R. Behind the R… $1300. She plays on. A… $800! Will she take $2100 or go for the car? She's taking the cash. Had she gone on… She would've won the car.
