From Day 1, Chris has been nothing but genuinely his fabulous self. Obviously the thing that makes The Circle unique is the fact that contestants don't know who is catfishing, but when one has a personality as loud and unapologetic as Chris, it puts on a more entertaining show than those actually catfishing.
I think the moment that first sold me on Chris was the fact that when Mercedes – the first catfish to be revealed – is voted out, she had the opportunity to visit one person. Of course, when this routinely happens, contestants freak out as they don't want to encounter an unpleasant interaction, but instead, my sweet angel Chris who didn't make any enemies squealed "Oh, I hope she picks me!" When she did choose him, he wasn't deterred by the fact that she had lied about her appearance. In fact, his first question to her, as she enters in a very warm, welcoming, and sweet tone of voice is "Are you Mercedes?" To me, that genuine interaction speaks more to be about Chris's personality than his loud image and appearance.
Above all, he is a team player. When players were forced to wait and see who would be blocked next, Chris seemed to always make an effort to comfort his fellow teammates and remind them that whatever next is meant to happen. This, in addition to him being an open book, having the best one liners, and the biggest personality made him my personal favorite and, in my opinion, deserving of the win.
