Though she originally went on Netflix's "The Circle" to win $100,000 with the strategy of catfishing as Mercedeze, fans grew to love Karyn for who she was when she was simply being herself. Because of course we did!
Viewers immediately started rooting for her, not because of the photos she was using, but because she was someone everyone could love. So, we were thrilled when Karyn opened up to Swoon about her personal preferences, her talents (seriously, oh my goodness! Google her), and the qualities she looks for in a partner.
For starters, she's exceptionally good at cooking and singing, plus she is always always always giving it her all, but that's not nearly enough to sum up the Bronx native.
