EXCLUSIVE: Discover 'UnREAL' Season 2 Secrets With Our 'Everlasting' Mansion Tour!
By Leanne Aguilera
It's time to explore the place where bad people make good TV!
ET was the first to visit UnREAL's set in Vancouver, Canada, and when we weren't getting "dark and dangerous" scoop from the stars, or acting (for the first time!) in the season two premiere, we were taking an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the expanded Everlasting mansion.
UnREAL star Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman -- who plays Jay, a producer on the Bachelor-inspired series -- acted as our Everlasting tour guide through all the sexy sets, control room chaos and infinite amounts of twinkle lights awaiting us in season two.
"This is essentially where all the girls reside once they are cast on the show of Everlasting," Bowyer-Chapman explained to our ET cameras as we walked through the foyer of a lavish, high-ceilinged living room.
The 31-year-old actor continued, "We stick them in here for nine weeks with no cellphones, no books, no Internet, and they just fight to the death."
"For love, of course!" he added.
The most surprising -- and totally trippy -- discovery during our Everlasting tour is that the outside scenes are actually shot inside a huge soundstage.
"This here is where a lot of the day dates go on," he said while gesturing to a brand new Arabian nights-inspired courtyard.
The lighting on UnREAL's set perfectly mimics real daylight, which was especially convenient considering it was pouring rain that day in Vancouver -- but you would have never known that by the looks of their sunny backyard!
And, of course, it wouldn’t be an official tour of Everlasting without checking out the dark heart of the series: the control room. With a massive wall of screens, we were able to peer inside each room -- yes, even the bathrooms! -- to see what was happening in every inch of the mansion.
"This is a breakdown of all of the acts for one episode of Everlasting," Bowyer-Chapman said while showing off a whiteboard that featured goals like, "Start a catfight!" "Get them drunk!" and, our personal favorite, "Get Darius to take off his shirt!"
Press play on our exclusive Everlasting tour above to get the first look at the new Suitor's sexy man-cave, the "glam room" where the girls get dazzling for their dates, and even more on-set secrets!
Season two of UnREAL premieres Monday, June 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime!
