More details on The Circle winner Sam Carmona
Carmona revealed that she felt blessed to win season 5 of The Circle and that it would take her some time to process the news. He was also very happy to see her playmate and know that she was real.
At the start of the final, Carmona was nervous about being blocked on the last day, saying that others tried to block her on the first day. This led her to devise a better strategy to reach the end. She was hiding in the kitchen cabinets when it was announced that secret super-influencer Chaz would be blocking a contestant. But she was relieved to discover that it wasn’t her.
Carmona did not stop making realistic jokes and announced in the group chat that she would shave her legs before meeting others. She voted for Chaz to be the winner and made sure she looked good before leaving the room.
She also welcomed the news of Chaz’s real-life engagement. Carmona even laughed when it was revealed that she had a ring made in her bedroom.
