What Happened Before the Cameras Rolled on the VPR Season 11 Reunion Taping

The cast spent their time in different rooms to use at their leisure and a separate wardrobe area and hair/makeup room. The cast was mostly just roaming around before taping and would pop into the different rooms to chat with different cast members.

The Vibe When the Reunion Taping Started

They started filming around 11 a.m. and the vibe was pretty mellow as everyone settled into their seats for the VPR Season 11 reunion to begin rolling.

At one point, Katie and Ariana got stuck together between their dresses, earrings, and hair when they went in to comfort one another. The crew and Andy had to step in try disentangle them.

Schwartz did pushups again during one of the breaks (like he did during the Season 10 reunion). The ladies did all of their photos during the lunch break and took off all their shoes. The rest of the cast did their photos sporadically throughout the rest of filming.

The Secret Guests Who Brought Special Treats to the VPR Season 11 Reunion

Filming ended around 8 p.m. and the mood was pretty sad and tense. Ann Maddox and Kyle Chan were hidden and kept as a secret until the very end to deliver sandwiches as the final toast.

Cheers, indeed.
