Her choices are a “Greenpeace supporter”, an accounts clerk, and a welder who likes to work out.
So in terms of earning a place among TV's elite dramas, it's the real deal.
"Un REAL" begins its second season June 6 on Lifetime.
Yet if the introductory year represented a shot across the bow at that genre, season two could become a real punch to the gut, softened only by the fact that this Lifetime drama garnered more media buzz than Nielsen ratings.
In season one, Quinn (Constance Zimmer), the acerbic producer of the fictional dating show within the show, "Everlasting," laughed off the fact that minorities seldom last long.
Grousing about a deficiency of bikini action around the pool, he says, "It's too much talking.
It's like a Merchant Ivory movie." Stick with it, and "Un REAL" zeroes in like a laser on the way these shows reduce everyone to stereotypes, and how the participants play along -- through cajoling and pressure, but also a warped desire for their 15 minutes of fame. They coax an African-American student activist to participate (or "blacktivist," as Quinn calls her), dismissing her concern that "Black girls only last a couple weeks on those shows." And naturally, they seek to create friction between her and a Southern contestant, who is prodded to wear a Confederate flag bikini.
As they search for a partner, the three ladies share their lives and emotionally support one another during the dating and decision making process. The inaugural cast consists April Francis, Rachel Harley and Libby Lopez.
Originally from Michigan, April Francis runs three businesses in Chicago.
She was raised in the Baptist Church and her strong faith in God is a priority in her life.
