Sexy, sassy and shocking; UnREAL peels back the shimmering veneer of the reality dating show to reveal how unreal they really are. Every character is manipulative. Every character is self-centred. Every character will stop at nothing to get what they want. Every character is unmissable. Unreal is unreal television and essential viewing. Set behind-the-scenes of faux dating show “Everlasting” proves that beauty is indeed only skin deep as a bevy of eligible beauties vie to win the heart of the requisite hunk, or via versa in Season 3 and find everlasting love. The girls think they all have a chance, but in reality, the producers know exactly who they want to be picked and will stop at nothing to ensure they get their final proposal.
