It’s the best time of year — especially if you’re single, thanks to HBO Max’s 12 Days of Christmas.
Part two takes the lead Amanda Grace Jenkins, Danny Escalante and Markelle Smith exclusively relive the magic of the holiday while filming the sensual carnival series ahead of its Thursday, November 25 premiere, and let’s just say there’s been a few mock acts under the mistletoe.
“It was a feeding frenzy,” Amanda, self-identified as a lesbian, jokes about the dating contest series. Danny, who claims to be outspoken, notes that it’s a “free for all” with love preferences.
Markelle, who identifies as gay, teased that there was “certainly some sort of crossover” between his “hungry hippo” suitors. “I just had to let it happen, let the process go as it would,” said the New York-based dentist. “I feel like it ended the way it should have been.”
The seasonal dating reality show takes place at a winter fairy tale castle as Amanda, Markelle, and Danny try to find that special someone to take home for the holidays.
