TVLine Items: The Circle Contestant Is Too Hot to Handle, GH Return and More

Too Hot to Handle‘s Chloe has entered The Circle, for Season 2 of Netflix’s other reality competition.

The trailer for The Circle‘s second revolution, shown above, also at one point finds Chloe, a Brit, asking, “What is N-S-Y-N-C?” when it appears that Lance Bass is about to join the mix.

Season 2 of The Circle, premiering Wednesday, April 14 and releasing four episodes weekly, promises to be “bigger and better, with more twists, turns, and shade thrown” as a cast of eight new contestants “flirt, befriend, piss off, and compete in challenges against each other” on a unique social media platform, all with an eye on a $100,000 prize.
