Undeniably, The Circle is back and coming in with new tricks. While the Netflix hit doesn’t disappoint, it still has catfish for the newest season. One of the new players, Caress Russell is coming in strong as her rapper little bro, but who is this famous guy?

Suspicions Arise In The Circle

During the first four episodes of The Circle Season 6, fans get to know a few new players. Undoubtedly, one of the biggest tricks up The Circle‘s sleeve was it announcing not everyone in the competition is human. When the announcement comes up, it is shocking to say the least that there is an A.I. player posing as a competitor. After the huge introduction of the idea of a computer generated person being in the game, everyone begins to point fingers. But among the group is more than just the chat bot catfish, there are a few others entering as other people. For instance, Caress Russell made her debut as her younger brother Paul.

Among The Circle‘s catfish pool is motivational speaker, Caress Russell. According to LinkedIn, Caress is the creative director at Neon Entertainment. Seemingly, she researches, writes, directs, produces, and assists in developing “new shows and special events for collegiate and corporate organizations.” Additionally, she tours as “Lady Caress” performing and traveling to over 200 colleges and universities in the United States. Furthermore, Caress uses her talent of beatbox poetry across the U.S. which helps her play her rapper brother.

While she has no problem speaking in public, she chose to enter the game as her little brother. Instead of using her face, she picks her brother who is eleven years younger. Unmistakably, she feels he is more connected to social media since he is so much younger. But Caress’ profile picture of Paul reveals her rapper brother is a familiar face. Admittedly, Paul Russell has more than 300,000 followers on Instagram.
