When Kyle first stepped foot inside his apartment, he wasn’t alone. While players in the past have chosen to bring their moms or best friends into the game, Kyle picked the most adorable roommate of all — his French bulldog named Deuce.

Aside from being a "proud dog dad," fans also quickly learned that Kyle is from Miami and works as a professional basketball player.

However, Kyle chose not to divulge that information to the other contestants out of fear of the “stigma” attached to basketball players. He also worried that they would assume he had a lot of money. Instead, Kyle chose to play the game as a basketball trainer.

Who does Kyle play basketball for?

Kyle’s basketball career started in college when he played for Vanderbilt University for four years from 2010 to 2014. Instead of being drafted into the National Basketball League, Kyle’s career took him overseas. Most recently, he played for Club Atlético Aguada in the Liga Uruguaya de Basketball (LUB).

Kyle is married in real life.

Outside of the game, Kyle is the opposite of “extremely single.” He got married a year ago to his wife, Jackie. Rather than play the game as a married man, he and his wife decided it would be more strategic if it went into it as “extremely single.” This way, he could flirt with other contestants in an effort to build connections and further himself in the game.

Many married contestants in the past have also chosen to keep their marital status a secret.

For example, circle winner DeLeesa Saint won her season after catfishing as her husband, Trevor.

In the hit Netflix competition series hosted by Michelle Buteau, Kyle is playing against some interesting characters. Contestants compete to be the most popular player in the game to win $100,000. Contestants can choose to play as themselves or catfish as someone else.

For the first time ever, contestants will unknowingly be competing against an AI robot named Max.

The first four episodes of Season 6 of The Circle are streaming now on Netflix. The next four, episodes 5–8 will air on April 24, followed by episodes 9-12 on May 1, and the finale on May 8.
