Spoilers ahead for The Circle Season 1. Although Season 1 has already concluded, buzz surrounding The Circle, Netflix's new reality competition show, is still rising steadily. Joey Sasso took home the $100,000 prize on Wednesday, Jan. 15, beating out Shubham Goel, Samantha "Sammie" Cimarelli, Chris Sapphire, and Rebec — sorry, Seaburn Williams from The Circle. Sammie's Instagram reveals that she's still being true to herself.
In addition to Instagram, she also has her own YouTube channel, where she discusses makeup, her sexuality, and eating crickets. In a post from July 2019, Sammie told her viewers that she was going to L.A. but couldn't share why. "I'm going to California for three days next week, and I won't be able to post any of it," she said as she applied a face mask. "I actually will be getting my electronics taken away.... But just know that something really crazy is happening, and you guys are going to know all about it in like, a couple months. Not any time soon." This was likely the beginning of her journey on The Circle.
And Sammie's excitement was well-founded, since the 25-year-old Miami resident came in third on the Netflix show. During her impressive run on the show, the contestant endeared herself to fans by calling out Alana for naming their group chat "Skinny Queens." And while Joey was a clear stand-out with many audience members, it was Sammie who won the Fan Favorite vote on Friday, Jan. 17, earning $10,000.
Here's what fans need to know from their fave contestant's Instagram account, @itsssammiee.
She's Kind to Her Younger Self
"[W]e did it babygirl. We've exceeded expectations," Sammie wrote to her younger self. "I'm so f*cking proud of you for not giving up when you thought the world was ending. You're so strong, you mean so much to so many people, and you won't stop until you get what you want and deserve. I commend you."
She's Proud of How Far She's Come
According to Sammie's LinkedIn, she's a registered behavior technician at a Florida practice called Behavior Analysis Inc. Previously, The Circle contestant graduated from Cabrini University in Pennsylvania, where she studied Psychology and Criminology.
She's a Glamour Shot Devotee
The majority of Sammie's Instagram is dedicated to her selfie game, which is predictably strong.

Sammie often wore this sheer top with a strategically placed rainbow on The Circle, which she's seen rocking in this June 2019 Instagram.

She Likes to Get Her Dance On
On her Instagram, Sammie breaks it down in a gigantic Spiderman T-shirt and busts a move in her bathroom after reaching 100K followers.
