12 dates of the Christmas distribution dish on “free for all” meetings


It’s the most wonderful time of the year, especially if you’re single, thanks to HBO Max 12 Christmas dates.

Season two leads Amanda Grace Jenkins, Danny Escalante and Markelle Smith exclusively relived the holiday magic of filming the sexy party series before the premiere on Thursday, November 25. And let’s say there were a few missteps under the mistletoe.

“It was a binge eating,” Amanda, identified as a lesbian, joked about the series of dating contests. Danny, who identifies as straight, noted that it was a “free for all” with love interests.

Markelle, who identifies as gay, teased that there was “certainly a crossbreed” between his “hungry and hungry hippos” suitors. “I just had to let it go, let the process go as it was going to be,” explained the New York-based dentist. “I feel like it ended as it should have.”

The seasonal dating reality show takes place in a castle in winter wonderland, as Amanda, Markelle, and Danny try to find the special someone to bring home for the holidays.
