It’s the most wonderful time of the year—especially if you’re single, thanks to HBO Max’s Twelve Dates for Christmas. 

Season two leads AmAnda Grace Jenkins, Danny Escalante and Markelle Smith exclusively relived the holiday magic of filming the sexy festive series ahead of the Thursday, Nov. 25 premiere. There were certainly some mistakes under the mistletoe.

Amanda, who identifies herself as a lesbian and joked about dating competition series, said that it was “a feeding frenzy”. Danny, who is straight, said it was “free for all”. He also noted that there were love interest. 

Markelle, who identified as gay, said that Markelle and his suitors were “definitely some crossover”. The New York dentist said, “I had to just let it happen. Let the process happen as they were going to.” It ended in the right way for me. 

This season’s dating reality TV show is set in winter wonderland castle where Amanda, Markelle and Danny attempt to meet the perfect person for their holidays.
