Here’s What The Bachelor Can Learn From UnREAL In Season 2

UnREAL season two is now in session—and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Honestly, The Bachelorette‘s current villain/star, Chad, is so perfect a reality contestant that it almost feels like he was dreamed up by a producer in a special reality TV laboratory—or a writer on a show about a fictional dating reality competition.

This year, the Everlasting (the reality-dating-show-within-the-show) has hired a black suitor—something star Constance Zimmer says ABC should take note of. “Maybe they should do an African American suitor—that would be a really good thing to learn from the show,” she told E! News on the red carpet at a FYC Emmy event this weekend.

While the show has already scored a third season renewal, star Shiri Appleby tells us that nobody’s even begun to think about what that could entail—a bachelorette, a different reality show altogether—who knows?

“I think the writers are still focused on finishing off our finale, so I’m sure the idea of ten more episodes is kind of daunting to them,” she told us.

Said Zimmer, “This is what’s so great: We can kind of do anything we want. We could maybe create our own reality show. We could do a Bachelor in Paradise, we could do Survivor, I don’t know. I feel like the world is our oyster. We can kind of do whatever we want, which is exciting!”

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, here’s what we can expect in season two: new love interests for both Rachel and Quinn. “Her love life is definitely messy,” Appleby said of her character, Rachel. “She meets a new guy, Coleman, who is a producer. He embodies who Rachel thinks she might want to wind up with—a nice Jewish guy who has a family house in Martha’s Vineyard. All the important things!”

As for Quinn, “She’s aiming for something a little bit bigger and a little bit higher on the ranking this season,” she told us. “She does get a love interest, which is going to be very fun to see.”

UnREAL airs Mondays at 10 p.m. on Lifetime.
