Well, Gio's mom obviously doesn't use Jane Fonda's plastic surgeon.

Jason, you didn't hire these people for their ability to sell real estate. You hired them for their looks.

This show is proof that guys can be just as bitchy as an office full of women. Maybe there's a market for "Real Husbands of Beverly Hills".

I wish there was more actual real estate porn and less focus on the infighting in the office. Is Alex Hall supposed to be the Christine Quinn of this version? I don't find her personality quite as grating as Quinn's, but if I never see her boob job again it will be too soon. The same with Kayla's chest.

Ok is it just me or does it feel like two separate shows one with the girls and guys and one with the two (and I’m sorry to say this ) most vapid conversation wrapped in self gratification wrapped in backhanded complements girls … why is Jarvis never around the whole group like ever?

They're probably trying to claim the "roles" they want based on "Sunset". Gio seems like the male Christine Quinn, Alex Hall looks like Chrishell Stause but maybe trying to be the female Christine, since Quinn gets mentioned even when she's not on screen and she fights with everybody. Jarvis reminds me of Emma Hernan from Sunset and Polly reminds me of Maya Vander. Kayla may be the Davina, since she's got a client she can't satisfy. As to who is the Mary, the Heather Rae, the Amanza....that hasn't shaken out yet in this first season, probably because the cast is too big. Cutting half the women and half the men would probably help.

ETA: I forgot that one of the guys is married to a tv actress, so that makes him the male Chrishell. Let's hope his marriage goes better than hers did to Hartley.

I googled their web site and clicked on it to have a look. There are a lot of agents working there, more than we saw on the Netflix show. My PC slowed to a crawl before I could count them all, so I'm afraid there's some malware on that site.

I've only watched the 1st episode. Good God, these people are dumber than 20 boxes of hair. The realtors in the West Hollywood crew look like Mensa members compared to these vapid goobers.

The one woman who had her first kid at 17 had a horrible story (if true)-who would dump their pregnant kid at a shelter? Jeez.

I'm not far enough in to be able to tell the other cast members apart (except for the obnoxious Gio dude and the Brit chick). The men are especially indistinguishable to me. Gio's Mom looks like she's headed for Jocelyn Wildenstein territory with the plastic surgery.

The houses are also all indistinguishable to me. Sure, they have great views and fancy interior finishes, but they're all multi-level stucco and glass boxes with infinity pools. For me, aesthetically the exteriors of these homes are hideous. I guess the point of them is that no one ever looks at the outside - they're all crammed against the hillsides overlooking the ocean. You'd think having mega-bucks would buy you some eccentricity and uniqueness. Meh. ((shrugs at rich people taste))

That seems to be human nature, though. Look at pictures of seaside Greece or the Amalfi coast of Italy. Those houses crammed against the hillsides are hundreds of years old (and a few are thousands of years old), all look pretty much alike, and we think it looks charming. Maybe some day that will be the case in California too.  We'll all be long dead by then, though.

The thing that blows my mind is that these houses are being bought as 2nd, 3rd, 4th...nth homes for rich people and they're probably going to sit empty except for a few weeks a year.

Maybe, but I have a feeling  the Laguna/Newport houses will have all slid into the ocean long before future generations find them collectively charming.

Ok, I literally played (all?) 8 episodes TWICE this weekend. After the first 'viewing' I realized I'd paid so little attention I couldn't name any of the cast members. Pretty much played Candy Crush, Wordle, etc. the whole time. The second viewing... THE SAME DAMN THING HAPPENED. What a snoozefest. I'm out.

Too much personal, and not enough real estate.  No one is really all that likeable.  The gang ups are disgusting.  The reasoning behind their anger is stupid and pointless.  

The fake outrage at the girl for trying to kiss the married guy when they were doing the same thing and getting naked in front of him? Gross.

The girl that was crying about her mom's health says her mom is her everything but she won't visit? Go visit your mom!

The guy that's attached to his mom's real estate dreams?  Oedipus complex.

I started watching Selling Sunset for the real estate, but they sidelined that for drama.  OC should have learned to stick with the real estate.

ETA: BTW, Alex Hall totally snubbed the guys wife.  She was awkward about it, and she should have just apologized, but she kept digging her hole.  If these people are trying to be professional, they are ALL failing.

I watched it this weekend.  I am not sure I like any of them.  I can watch all of them without picking sides. They have their little cliques.  Kayla seemed to run back and forth depending who would agree with her.  Alex Hall sure likes the spotlight.  I don't like her and she can put her boobs away.  I kept wondering how the wives felt watching this.

Why oh why did I watch…they somehow have even less houses than the other one… and no one seem to be likeable so hard to pick sides or even care…..we all know these shows manufacturer drama situations    but this seemed  so much worse/extra staged … which is saying a lot….   Does anyone know if the 100 million house sold, the only interesting house and not even their listing!

These folks are like the Jersey Shore kids moved to California and are pretending to be real estate agents. About 12 brain cells between them all. 

The only one I see as a real agent and possibly having a future in real estate is Gio, and that’s only due to his mother. Seems to be wanting to follow in her footsteps. 


All the talk about their “first big listings”. How the hell has this office remained opened? There must be many other real agents behind the scenes doing the selling and these characters are coming straight from the casting couch. I had such high hopes for this show…so disappointing. 

And I expected much more from the houses out there. Heck, Vicki Gunvalsons house was more impressive than some of what was shown.

She didn't visit her mom because Covid is still a thing and the mom was undergoing chemo, which compromised her immune system.

Gio, Jarvis & Rose are the only producers out of the bunch, which is the real reason the rest of the cast doesn't like Jarvis & Rose and starting rumors about how they get their double digit listings.  Funny how the cast started rumors about how Jarvis & Rose get their listings, mock Jarvis' education, snub them at office functions, tell them they hate them but Jarvis & Rose are the bullies.  Right.

I saw that earlier today. I didn’t realize they were practically newlyweds when filming happened. I base that on saying divorcing after less than two years. 
 

I found myself liking Gio and his wife the most by the end of the season. And Polly. And the dude who a couple of times wore glasses and was kind of a hot nerd.
I will stick around for next season but I hope they work out the dynamics between work and personal better.

And also that they drop maybe half of the women would be cool.

I have no idea who Brittany Snow is (I'm old) but I did think Tyler was a cutie amongst a sea of indistinguishable himbos. He also seemed nice from what we saw on camera.

I was also surprised that I wound up liking Gio more than I thought I would - he has the nicest home out of all of them. It was probably the only house that's been featured on the show that I could picture myself living in.

Doesn't matter.  One thing that Covid taught me is that if you love someone, see them and spend time with them.  People were left alone for far too long.

I’m trying to get through this but they’re all utterly hateful, self involved morons. 

Why do they all call Alex by her full name Alex Hall?

Because there are 2 other Alexandras in the office & they all use "Alex", so they call them variations on the name to tell them apart. She just decided to use her last name too.
