  • In Episode 3, Jake Epstein said after he was cast as Craig Manning, he was asked to read for the Marco auditions. He was given a scene in which Craig and Marco Del Rossi seemed to be flirting. He believed that the writers were toying with the idea of making them love interests but the idea was discarded.
  • In Episode 5, Shane Kippel admitted that Spinner Mason's marriage to Emma Nelson was unrealistic, and that Spinner and Jane Vaughn should have ended their tenures on the show, at the very least, with the potential to rekindle their relationship in the future, if not as a married couple.
  • In Episode 9, Stacey Farber revealed that neither she nor Adamo Ruggiero could play an instrument in real life in spite of the fact that they played musicians.
