- The Circle -Where Are Ed & Tammy From 'The Circle' Season 1 Now? Circle, Open Instagram
The Conshohocken pride is going strong on The Circle Season 2 thanks to the addition of Mitchell Eason, the brother and son of Season 1 contestants Ed and Tammy. Mitchell joined The Circle alongside professional volleyball player Khat in the second batch of Season 2 episodes, and immediately made it clear he's on the show to restore his family's good name after his brother and mother ferked it up in Season 1 (his words). While his mom and brother made for an unconventional duo, they were also a (mostly) fun late addition to Season 1, and Mitchell's presence on the show might just leave you wondering what Ed and Tammy are up to these days.
In Season 1, Ed and Tammy's mother-son bond was adorable — although, it did lead to some awkward moments when Ed was trying to get his flirt on. But overall the duo didn't have what it takes to make it over the finish line. In his intro, Mitchell attributes his family's inability to take home the $100k grand prize to a lack of people skills, and well, he's not wrong. Season 1 of The Circle was mostly a love-fest, but Ed and Tammy came in a little too hot for a crowd that included total sweethearts like Chris, Seaburn, and Joey.
As a result, they didn't make the connections necessary to be real contenders on the show. However, even though they didn't win The Circle, their time as reality TV stars has definitely changed their lives, at least to some extent.
Tammy Updated Her Real-Life Instagram Profile To Reflect Her Public Figure Status
Tammy hasn't quit her day job as a real estate agent in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, but she has embraced her new role as a public figure by adding that humblebrag to her Instagram profile. But one look at her social media pages makes it clear she's not letting her reality star status go to her head. Instead, she spends most of her time posting about how proud she is of her sons.
Ed and Mitchell both make frequent appearances on her Instagram, and she always shares their latest gigs — including Mitchell's side gig as a model for a sprinkles company. In a July 2020 interview with the blog Sarah Scoop, Tammy revealed that the biggest way her life has changed since being on The Circle is that everyone is sliding into her DMs in hopes of getting a date with Ed.
"A lot of girls, and guys, if Ed didn’t answer his DMs like they would come to mom and are like 'Oh like Eddy is so cute. Can you get us a date? He's not messaging me back,' and I'm like yo, get in line," she said. "Like Ed answer your own DMs."
In the same interview she revealed she's also still in touch with The Circle Season 1 cast, and pre-COVID-19, she had hoped to get everyone together at her house. "We all wanted to get together but then COVID hit…" she explained. "I told everybody you are welcome at my house, but then like that week, mid-march, like COVID hit so we just had to cancel everything."
Ed Is Still Living His Best Bro Life
The Circle fans will be happy to know Ed is still... well, being Ed. As he told Sarah Scoop, he slipped right back into his regular life after The Circle ended. "I just jumped back into normal life," he said. "I went back to my job, back to hanging out with my friends. Nothing really changed. Just a couple times at the bars, people would say, 'Your Ed from The Circle,' and I’d be like yeah that's me."
His Instagram page reveals he's been partying hard the past few months — fingers crossed he formed a bubble — and he recently purchased a motorcycle. He's also working as a trainer, according to Tammy's IG, but mostly it looks like he's just living the ultimate bro life and loving it.
Now that Mitchell has entered The Circle, the Eason family has a chance for redemption, and you can bet Tammy and Ed will be cheering him on.
