Showrunner Dave Rupel explains why this is his favorite episode of the season, as much for things you'll never see, as for things you did.

Many conversations, many phone calls and many drinks later – not to mention a very odd demand that we start dancing at 4 a.m. – which we did - (hey - anything for the show!) – and everyone at least agreed to shoot the next thing that was scheduled – Lisa and Kyle going shopping the next morning. That was the real turning point of the entire series for me. After a night of arguments and tears, Lisa and Kyle were able to laugh and make jokes. "I feel like I've been shagged through a hedge backwards." Possibly my favorite line of the season!

As you know, we were able to convince everyone to go forward, and got unprecedented access to Kelsey's premiere! Seriously, I'm still amazed all these months later: the red carpet, inside the theater, intermission, the curtain call, backstage, the after-party. I've never seen anything like it on any other reality show. Hope you all enjoyed it! And keep the comments and questions coming. We like to hear what you think.
