Cue the twinkly lights, light the candles, and turn up the dramatic music: UnREAL has cast its latest contestants.
In the third season of Lifetime’s The Bachelor-skewering drama about the producers behind a reality dating show, Quinn (Constance Zimmer) and Rachel (Shiri Appleby) have cast a female “suitress” named Serena (Masters of Sex‘s Caitlin FitzGerald) as Everlasting‘s star and found a stacked lineup of men to vie for her heart.
Meet the 10 featured suitors looking for love or fame (or both!) below:
Bart Edwards as Jasper
The English actor who most recently appeared in a small role in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will play a “hot, successful Wall Street investment banker” and “charmingly Alpha male” who “seems like he’d make the perfect ‘power couple'” with Serena.
Alex Hernandez as Owen
Hernandez (Hemlock Grove) plays a “dashingly handsome firefighter and Army veteran” who “is a single dad, looking for love.” Any bets on when his kid will come onto set to add more drama?
Adam Demos as August
A “pro-surfer-meets-humanitarian adventurer,” Demos’ August “left Laguna Beach to join the Peace Corps and save the world.”
Alex Sparrow as Alexi
Sparrow — known as Alexey Vorobyov in his native Russia — had stints on Russia’s X-Factor and Dancing With the Stars, making him the perfect choice to play Alexi, a “bad boy of the ballet world” who’s “edgy, unpredictable, and explosive.” Hmm… could he be this season’s villain? Either way, someone should make him sing for Serena’s heart.
Joe Abraham as Norman
Abraham, whose last TV credit was an episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, plays Norman, a jockey who’s small but mighty. According to his character bio, he’s “an elite athlete and very confident.” This season’s horseback riding date will be wild.
Tyler Hynes as Billy
Everlasting doubles down on its athletes with Billy, a “pro race car driver” who “lives by his traditional, conservative values.” Hynes last appeared in Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience and a season of the Canadian police drama 19-2.
Marcus Rosner as Warren
A Hallmark Channel regular, Rosner has played suitors in everything from Christmas-themed TV movies (A Firehouse Christmas) to sappy period dramas (When Calls the Heart). On UnREAL, he’ll play a “hot down-home rancher with a cowboy attitude” — and a healthy helping of dimples.
Cameron Bancroft as Preston
The 24 alum plays Preston, an older suitor and Miami real estate tycoon described as a “silver fox.”
Terry Chen as Guy
The Asian-Canadian actor most recently starred as Brendan on Van Helsing and has played a slew of roles in sci-fi series like Continuum, The 100, and Battlestar Galactica. Chen leaves the genre realm behind as Guy, a “hot, young tattooed chef, who is looking for any way to get ahead.” Fingers crossed Serena’s a foodie.
Melvin Gregg as Zach
Depending on how much time you spend on the Internet, you may have already heard of Gregg: The actor is also a (former) Vine star and logged more than 2 billion loops and nearly 4 million followers. Gregg’s Zach, as a “charming millennial and major social media influencer,” is pretty much a fictional version of himself.
UnREAL returns in 2017.
