Netflix’s ‘The Circle‘ is an exciting game show that tries to recreate a modern-day social media model through its interesting premise. Bringing together a group of participants, the show has them live in isolated apartments while being cut off from the rest of the world. Although the main aim of the game is to become the most popular, the contestants can only interact with each other through a specially made social media app. However, as the app only transmits images and texts, it encourages anonymity as a viable strategy for the game.
29-year-old Maryland Native, Frank Grimsley, made waves with his appearance on ‘The Circle’ season 4. His charm, ready wit, and positivity immediately made him quite popular among fans and his fellow contestants. However, with the cameras now turned away, viewers are interested in knowing where Frank is at present. Let’s find out, shall we?
Who Is Frank Grimsley?
A licensed therapist and school social worker, Frank hails from Maryland. He also claimed to be an advocate for body positivity and mentioned that he loves spreading goodwill as the world always needs more of it. According to reports, Frank started his career as a host for an event management company and was also involved with a plus-size shopping company. Moreover, apart from being a licensed therapist, Frank also creates content on the side and has undertaken numerous social media brand deals.
Frank became a fan-favorite contestant immediately after joining ‘The Circle’ as people fell in love with his charm and positivity. Entering the game as himself, Frank chose to maintain an amicable relationship with most others and never went out of his way to start a fight. Moreover, his friendly nature even helped him become a part of several alliances, and once the first blocking rolled up, Frank was already voted as one of the influencers and one of the contestants most likely to win.
In the days that followed, Frank strengthened his alliances and got quite close to several of his co-contestants, including, Yu-Ling, Alyssa, Bru, and Rachel. Besides, he never seemed to belittle any contestant behind their backs, which turned him into a trustworthy and valuable ally for most. In the penultimate episode, Frank became the highest-rated player and earned the title of the “super-secret influencer,” which automatically gave him a seat in the season finale.
Unfortunately, Frank did not have a strong bond with Nathan AKA Alex. Therefore, he blocked the latter in favor of Eversen. Ultimately, at the very end, the game came down between Frank and Trevor before the Maryland native was crowned the winner, much to the delight of fans.
Where Is Frank Grimsley Now?
After filming wrapped, Frank settled back into his daily life and returned to his work as a School Social Worker. Moreover, he also resumed creating content on social media, which witnessed a boost in followers following his appearance on the Netflix show. Besides, Frank even found immense success as an influencer and is currently involved in promoting numerous brands through Instagram.
Frank thanked everyone for the love they showered on him during and after his time on the Netflix production. Alongside a happy picture of himself, he wrote a heartwarming caption, expressing his gratitude. The caption read, in part, “The amount of love I’ve received from all over the world has been absolutely breathtaking. It feels even better because I’m receiving that love for being my authentic self.”
Frank further wrote, “I can’t respond to every single message, but just know that you all have truly made this journey so life changing! I knew when going on this show I had to share all the parts of me that made me who I am and to know that there are so many of you out there that resonate with that only confirms that I was in alignment with the overall purpose for my life.” From the looks of it, he has even created a few long-lasting friendships during his time on ‘The Circle.’ Witnessing Frank live a life surrounded by friends is quite wonderful, and we hope he remains happy in the years to come.
