Bachelor Alum DeAnna Pappas Stagliano Judges Whether the Premiere of Lifetime's UnREAL Rose to the Occasion

Bachelor Alum DeAnna Pappas Stagliano Judges Whether the Premiere of Lifetime's UnREAL Rose to the Occasion

Few people know the Bachelor universe better than DeAnna Pappas Stagliano. After Bachelor Brad Womack's final-rose-free season 11 shake-up, she was selected to be the next Bachelorette. She even kept it in the family, marrying and starting a family with Stephen Stagliano, the twin brother of Bachelorette/Bachelor Pad favorite Michael Stagliano. Now DeAnna is providing her one-of-a-kind insight with weekly takes on Lifetime's TV-love drama UnREAL. Follow her on Twitter, @DeAnna Pappas!

Let's start with your own experiences. Do you remember any funny behind-the-scenes moments from your own experience that were similar to UnREAL?
Night one is really so intense and a roller coaster of emotions! I remember on my night one of filming The Bachelorette, I was wearing this gorgeous designer gown that was paper-thin and way too long for me. So the stylist draped it on the ground and stuck me in 7-in. heels! It was taped down onto my body in almost every space it possibly could be taped down. I could barely move! And for some reason, almost every guy who stepped out of the limo insisted on spinning me in a circle to get a good look at me! At one point, I almost fell from getting tangled in my beautiful dress while being seconds away from exposing my Bachelorette tatas!!

Speaking of entrances, The Bachelor is known for memorable introductions on night one. Who was most memorable on your season?
The most memorable entrance from my season had to be Jeremy Anderson. He was the last guy out of the limo, and he was gorgeous – very dapper. I remember him being the only guy who didn't seem as nervous as I was, and he actually hung around to talk to me! He didn't rush off inside as soon as he got out of the limo. It made me feel safe and that he genuinely wanted to get to know me. In that situation, I appreciated that so much. Just watching UnREAL and seeing the over-the-top entrances from the girls absolutely reminds me of the crazy impressions people try to make on night one. It's like, in the two days after you come to L.A. to be on the show, you become desperate to make a lasting impression and be remembered by someone you don't even know.

UnREAL: DeAnna Pappas Stagliano Previews Lifetime's New Bachelor-esque Drama

Originally posted 05/26/2015 04:15PM

For reality-TV fans – Bachelor fans, especially – Lifetime's upcoming drama UnREAL will feel more than a little familiar.

PEOPLE has an exclusive sneak-peek clip of the series, starring Shiri Appleby and Constance Zimmer, which offers a behind-the-scenes look at a fictitious reality romance show in which a group of women vie for the heart of one suitor (see where we're going with this?).

"It's totally realistic," former Bachelor and Bachelorette star DeAnna Stagliano (née Pappas) tells PEOPLE of the clip.

"It reminded me of the show in the way the carriage rolled up and the woman got out playing the violin," she continues. "It's totally something a contestant would do to get someone's attention!"
