UnREAL Stars Want a Female Suitor for Season 3

Shiri Appleby wants to turn the tables next season

Malcolm Venable

UnREAL has tackled a lot in just two seasons, including sexism, race, class, police brutality, female relationships, domestic violence and more. So what will the creative, quirky minds at Lifetime's biggest hit cook up in Season 3? How about making the suitor on the fictional dating reality show Everlasting female?

Series star Shiri Appleby says she and Constance Zimmer, who play showrunners Rachel and Quinn, respectively, have been talking about how to top this season. By the sound of it, they've got a pretty good idea.

"Constance and I are sort of rooting for a bachelorette," Appleby told on the Emmys red carpet. "Surround Quinn and Rachel with, like, twenty men and watch Rachel sleep with half of them."

You think Appleby is joking, but fans of the show know that Rachel has slept with an increasing number of the staff, cast and hangers-on of Everlasting over the past two seasons of UnREAL. Granted, this idea is a little over the top (and definitely in jest); but mixing up the sexes on set would certainly upend the dynamic of the show considerably. That said, you probably shouldn't hold your breathe for a beefcake parade quite yet.

"We think it would be really fun," Appleby added. "We have no idea, we're just waiting for the writers to sort of let us know, but we think it would be a great story."

UnREAL has been picked up for a third season, but has no official start date on Lifetime as of yet.
