A reporter looking to expose Everlasting's secrets leaves Rachel with no other choice but to come clean to Serena. After Quinn approves Jay's idea for a new show, he must make a potentially dangerous deal with one of the contestants. Rachel revisits a trauma from her dark past and uncovers distressing news.
"Unreal" goes behind-the-scenes of a hit competition dating show to follow the experiences of a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with (and among) the contestants to get the vital dramatic and outrageous footage the program's producers demand. What ensues is a humorous, yet vexing, look at what happens in the world of unscripted television, where being a contestant can be vicious and producing it is a whole other reality.
