While Netflix is home to some world-class drama, the streaming giant also serves up some top-notch reality TV too, with several of its fly-on-the-wall series' becoming global phenomenons.
One of the platform’s most talked-about shows is the glamorous Selling Sunset, which follows the lives of a group of highly preened and polished realtors of the Oppenheim Group selling multi-million pound properties in Los Angeles.
The property show, which is returning for a third season, has won fans across the world for its no holds-barred access behind the velvet curtain of luxury living, banal dramas sharply edited to Kardashian levels of artifice and the catfighting and collaborative efforts of the realtors themselves.
So just who is who in this hate-to-love, love-to-hate series? Here’s the lowdown on the stars of the show.
The 31-year-old is arguably the viewers’ favourite out of the realtors at the Oppenheimer Group, due to her upfront and direct manner.
Having initially forged a career in fashion and entertainment when she was younger (even gracing the pages of Vogue at one point), Quinn entered toe cut-throat world of real estate after travelling across the globe during a sabbatical.
She married husband Christian Richard in 2019, with the businessman worth a substantial $20 million.
Quinn is best known for her confrontational demenour and her feud with fellow realtor Chrishell Stause. While others have pulled Quinn up on her “toxic energy”, Quinn argues she’s just “being authentic”.
The 38-year-old became a household name in the States before Selling Sunset as a daytime television actress, starring in Days of Our Lives, All My Children and Mistresses.
Having previously been engaged to Glee star Matthew Morrison, Stause married Smallville actor Justin Hartley in 2017, three years after they started dating. Having divorced late last year, the latest series of Selling Sunset is thought to delve into Stause’s split in greater detail – something the star is not thrilled with the prospect of.
"It's obviously not something that I am looking forward to but it does follow our real life,” she told Entertainment Today. "Where the show picks up, that was my life and unfortunately you are going to follow the journey of that - the good and the bad."
The 39-year-old has been in real estate for 12 years, having also sold luxury flats in New York and London.
The dog-loving realtor, who is now married her Selling Sunset co-star and French model Romain Bonnet, has also had history with boss Jason Oppenheim – with the pair still choosing to co-parent the pooches they share.
Fitzgerald is hugely successful as a realtor and very career driven; even managing to sell a property on the day of her wedding.
One of the viewer favourites of the show, Vander comes from a well-travelled background, having grown-up in Israel, Singapore and Spain before settling in Los Angeles nearly 20 years ago.
The no-nonsense realtor juggles selling properties with the Oppenheim Group and Douglas Elliman Real Estate in Miami.
She now has two children, giving birth to son Aiden in April last year and daughter Elle Madison in May.
Heather Rae Young
The 32-year-old already had an impressive career in entertainment before entering real estate, having spent most of her twenties as a model.
As well as being a Playboy Playmate, winning the title of Miss February in 2010, Young also starred in a number of films and television programmes including The Malibu Tapes and Comedy! Bang! Bang!
She recently got engaged to her boyfriend of around a year, TV presenter Tarek El Moussa.
Joining the show in series two, the 43-year-old was introduced to the world of real estate after working for years as an interior designer.
Her natural eye for home style came from her own background, which she talks about in the show.
“It’s a natural talent that I’ve always had, and it came from growing up really poor,” she said. “I lived in a trailer. I would get, like, one can of paint a year, and I would paint everything in my room, from the bunk beds to the dresser to the accessories.
“I got really creative. I became a DIY master at a very young age.”
Smith, who was previously married to NFL player Ralph Brown (meeting him when she was an NFL cheerleader) also wanted to move into the lucrative property business to help support her children: Noah, 10, and eight-year-old Braker.
Her close friendships with Mary Fitzgerald and Oppenheim twins Jason and Brett are also part of the series.
Christine Quinn’s new best friend in season two, Potratz was introduced to viewers with the immortal line: “Davina is the only one without fake boobs so she must be the realest of The Oppenheim Group bunch.”
Born and raised in Germany, Potratz previously worked as a model before being drawn into the world of real estate.
Talking to Voyage LA, Davina said: "After high school, I decided to attend Pepperdine University in Malibu where I studied Advertising.
"In many of my graphic design classes I would create real estate magazine covers but to get the images, I would drive around Malibu and door knock asking homeowners if I could photograph their property.
"To my fortune, many delighted at the idea so I got great images to work with on my assignments.
"Seeing these incredible homes lead to a passion and fascination with real estate."
Selling Sunset season three launches on Netflix on Friday, August 7
