People Are Saying 'Selling Sunset' Is The Best Reality Show They've Ever Seen
Created by the same team who brought us The Hills, it's no surprise the real estate reality show - starring Chrishell Stause, Christine Quinn, Maya Vander, Mary Fitzgerald, Heather Young and more - offers everything you'd want from a reality show, from aspirational parties to b*tchy arguments and whirlwind romances.
It racked up quite a fanbase after its debut in March last year, showing the cut-throat estate agents fighting each other for millions in commission, and wooing billionaires and big name brokers on the 'reg.
But now it has grown even more in popularity, with a whole new batch of viewers discovering the series for the first time this weekend, and binging both instalments in one go.
"Selling Sunset is easily the best reality show airing rn," one fan declared after watching the new series at the weekend.
While another agreed: "Is it bad that I'm not a massive TOWIE fan etc, yet I'm completely addicted to #SellingSunset?!! I think it's the glamour...!"
"Selling Sunset is the best thing to come out of Netflix. Class A trash tele (sic)", another mused.
As a fourth concurred: "I'm addicted to this show! I lust over the houses and outfits. Fashion and property porn! #SellingSunset".

The show follows high end LA estate agency, Oppenheim Group, owned by twin brothers Jason and Brett Oppenheim.
And the houses they sell their clients have to be seen to be believed, ranging anywhere from £2m to £75m, with stretching infinity pools, eye catching interiors and views of Beverley Hills that you only see in movies.
But the property porn is only a small part of the show. On top of that, we're given an insight into the team dynamic, the glitz and glamour and the feisty personalities at the heart of the agency.
The elite real estate brokers encountered a whole lot of drama in Season 1 as newbie Chrishell Stause joined the team, and rubbed some of the OG agents, like Christine Quinn, up the wrong way.
Tempers flared as people questioned 38-year-old Mary Fitzgerald's relationship with her 25-year-old beau, Romain Bonnet, and the season ended with a blazing row between Chrishell and Christine, as everything came to blows.
In season two, there was more fights, more cattiness and a whole load more multi-million pound properties to swoon at.
Christine came back from travelling the world with a brand new fiancé, and Mary and Romain proved the doubters wrong and finally tied the knot, after months of planning.
As Christine settled back into life at the agency, we saw the cast deal with the aftermath of her row with Chrishell, and a divide began to form between the girls in the agency as they picked their sides.
And Mary was forced to explain to Davina why Romain didn't want her at their wedding, providing much awkwardness and a lot of frosty chats.
While the season ended on a somewhat harmonious note, Netflix also teased that there was much more dramz to come: from the end of Chrishell's marriage to Justin Hartley to Romain admitting to Mary he'd done something "wrong"...eeeek.
Yep, we're getting a Season 3 people, and it's landing on August 7th.
We're so glad we've got more Selling Sunset to look forward to. Frankly, it can't come soon enough.
You can watch Selling Sunset Season 1 and 2 on Netflix now.
