Who is The Circle’s Contestant Courtney Revolution?

A year in isolation hasn’t even slowed the buzz around Season 2 of the Netflix reality series The Circle. The participants move into isolated apartments in the show and only communicate through accounts created on the titular social media app to become the most popular player and win $100,000. 

There is also a twist in the game; the twist is that the player can either play the game with their real identity or use fake identity for catfishing the other players. 

Courtney Revolution is the player to chose the first option, i.e., playing with real identity. In this article, let’s find out who Courtney is and how he ended up in The Circle.

Who Is Courtney Revolution?

Courtney Revolution, also known as Courtney Linsen, is a 28-year-old online entertainment host. On his The Circle profile, he presented himself as a barista because he did not want other contestants to think he was “nosy” because of his entertainment journalism background. 

A podcast host and digital creator based in Los Angeles, California, also revealed that he joined The Circle to alter his image going into the game to be on a safer strategic side.

“My passion for entertaining developed once I discovered the internet, and one of my first loves – YouTube,” 

“After briefly falling in love with fashion and turning down my acceptance to FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising) (my dream school at the time), I refocused…realized that I had a special knack for communicating…finished my degree [from a community college] and packed a car and road tripped to Los Angeles.”

Where is He Now?

Courtney is still on the West Coast. While living in a hustle in Los Angeles, doing few odd jobs, he realized that he could be in the industry forever and started establishing his brand. 

Utilizing the extensive knowledge, Courtney launched his own live pop culture show on YouTube and subsequently began a podcast called ‘Overheard in the Pantry,’ alongside his closest friends, Phylesha Hiers.

Courtney and his close friend Phylesha have also build a merchandise line, which is available on Teespring. The walk to the road to stability was not easy; as Courtney said, he utilized every opportunity to turn into success. 

“Everyone wants to be ‘a star,’ everyone wants ‘the job,’ so many people want to be ‘the best,’ and as a black gay man, opportunities don’t come as frequently as my white counterparts,” 

“However, I use the moments that I am thought of or included or involved, to always attempt to knock it out of the park and to do my absolute best.”

Courtney thanked everyone who believed in him and supported him. 

“Just wanted to say thank you for letting me do me and loving me for just me.”

Furthermore, per Stars Offline, Courtney’s net worth is reportedly surpassed $200K. 

What Is His Relationship Status?

Courtney Revolution is a proud gay man. In October 2018, he came out of the closet opening about his sexuality. 

Moreover, he also posted pictures with the fellow digital creator, Teddy 
Jonny on his Instagram. People assumed them as a couple; however, they are best friends and are not linked romantically. 

Now, in 2021, he might be single and not dating anyone at the moment.
