About Lee Swift:

Currently, 58-year-old Lee Swift from Dallas, Texas is the oldest person in the cast of The Circle Season 2. Lee competed on the Netflix show with the catfish name of "River," who was described as a 24-year-old student. The cast of the Netflix reality show The Circle is tasked each season with fooling the other contestants into trusting them enough to keep them in the game. That could be in the form of being themselves, pretending to be a different person or someone of an entirely different sex altogether. Lee Swift may have catfished his co-stars, but the fans fell in love with this book author's real personality on the show. As a writer, Lee showed that he had the potential to get inside the heads of the other contestants as he's constantly thinking of new characters. He became that individual in every post, statement, and response that he shared with the other players on the show.

Lee is an author of LGBTQIA+ novels under the pen name of Kris Cook. His published works include titles like The Doctor in Unit H, Three to Play, Cupid's Arrow, Levi's Rogues, and Holiday Beaus. Lee has also co-written with Lana McLemore.
