Unlikeable Women: Quinn & Rachel in UnReal

Okay, this one’s a double-shot. UnReal. If you haven’t seen it and you like a strong, manipulative, damaged-but-gets-things-done kinda gal, then this Lifetime series is for you.

Who: Rachel (Shiri Appleby) and Quinn (Constance Zimmer).

Quinn (Constance Zimmer) and Rachel (Shiri Appleby) form a manipulative, good cop/bad cop, tag team from hell in UnReal.

Why: Rachel, a producer for a Bachelor-like reality show, and Quinn the executive producer of the same show do not provide a supportive, safe haven for the wide-eyed contestants who arrive, looking for love and fame. Instead, Rachel and Quinn cannily eye up the pressure points for their unsuspecting contestants, as well as all those they work with and around, to extract what they need for short and long-term gains. Doesn’t sound pretty? Well, it isn’t, but it is dark, funny and a riot to watch.

Where: Season one is available on Hulu and the season 2 premieres June 6th.
