Plus, House Beautiful is exclusively revealing new photos of this season's cast, including modelesque solo portraits. Warning: After gazing at these shots and reading these teasers, you'll be even more eager to binge all eight episodes of the next installment in one sitting.
See the Cast of Selling the OC Season 2:
House Beautiful: What can fans expect to see in season two?
Jason Oppenheim: This season allows the audience to get to know the agents better, which was important to me. I know them so well, I love them so much, and I think the audience gets a real idea of how great these people are personally and professionally. I mean, yes, they get some mud on their faces, but I think you also get a chance to know them.
Alexandra Jarvis: I'd have to piggyback off of Jason. I do feel like the audience will get to know people a little bit better, and people's true colors are definitely showing. Some people just lack character, and I think that becomes more apparent. People love to sling mud or just throw things against the wall and see what will stick, but I think the audience is smarter than most people may realize.
Polly Brindle: Season one was very much an introduction to OC, to real estate down here, which is very different from what people have seen on Selling Sunset and the office dynamic of that. We've got male and female agents on the show, and season two definitely does see more of our personalities. The conflicts that happen really show who remains true to themselves and who maybe is being a different person, which is surprising to people who remain themselves. I think you see that.
Austin Victoria: In season one, there's obviously a divide happening in the office, and I think season two is when that divide really becomes clear. It's very clear that there are people who are not friends, and they will not be friends. You get to see people's true colors and, like Jason said, you get to see inside people's lives and who they actually are. You get to get to know us a little bit better.
Tyler Stanaland: This season, you see relationships shift, new dynamics, new friendships form, and incredible real estate. It's the evolution of what season one was.
Alex Hall: I've realized we're filming a reality show, not some inspirational documentary. I just hope everyone is entertained and wants to stick around for season three and so on.
Ali (Alexandra) Harper: It's my first season, although it's season two of the show, so obviously you'll be able to see me making a very big decision, kind of going into a new chapter of my life, and also forming relationships. It's been an incredible experience, and I think it'll be really fun to watch.
Brandi Marshall: Accountability is big this season. Holding people who you consider friends accountable is a difficult situation to be in. Some people are being called out and being held accountable for some of their hypocritical behavior, and it causes office dynamics to really turn upside down and just get wild.
Sean Palmieri: I would say three letters: WTF. Honestly, over time there's a scene with me and Kayla where she's explaining stuff and I'm literally like, what the... I'm literally speechless at some points because there's so much going on, and we have a big office. The cast is just part of our entire office. There's a lot going on and when you hear so many stories and so much back-and-forth, at one point you literally tell yourself WTF. It's a lot to process, and there's so much drama going on that it was interesting to see the back-and-forth that transpired.
House Beautiful: What's a takeaway you want viewers to have from season two?
Gio Helou: Perspective rules all, and the camera can only capture so much. So, despite how I might come across, we all have our own struggles and daily battles that we deal with.
Kayla Cardona: Stay true and authentic to yourself. The truth always comes out, and it goes a long way when you're being honest and real. You might get the short end of the stick, hence what I got in season one. But I was true to myself, authentic, and I was proven right. So I think just keeping it very real and authentic definitely goes far.
Alexandra Rose: If other people in your life are accusing you or making you feel guilty of something, it's usually because they are guilty of what they're accusing you of. It's called projection.
Lauren Shortt: My takeaway would be that there's only one thing that's guaranteed in life and that's change. The state of the market is changing, interest rates are changing, and the business dynamic is changing, but also the friendships in this office are changing. And it's interesting to watch all of that take place.
