Warning: Light spoilers for The Circle Season 5 follow. It’s never really possible to pick out a Circle winner after just one episode, but if Season 5’s premiere is any indication, Chaz Lawery would be a pretty good bet. The self-proclaimed “Shampoo Papi” entered the game with chill vibes, immediately strong bonds, and a plan to become the most like player in The Circle. Chaz is mostly playing as his authentic self, although he did fib a bit about his profession and relationship status. Here’s everything to know about the early frontrunner.
Chaz was very quick to find his footing within The Circle. Not only did his early high ranking make him one of the first influencers in the game, but he also formed a very strong bond with Sam and entered the alliance “Team Melanin” alongside Raven and Marvin. Basically, he started off the game right, and his half-catfish strategy really paid off. Chaz lied in his profile saying he’s a nurse, when in actuality, he dropped out of nursing school and is a mobile car detailer. He calls himself Shampoo Papi because much of his job is washing cars. Chaz also lied about his relationship status so that he could best navigate the all-singles season. In reality, Chaz is engaged, but he won’t be bringing that up in the game.
Here’s all the tea on Chaz’s real life.
