The rivals in the reality show” is a fast-paced, whirlwind steamy romance about two rivals who participate in a reality show together.

Larry is the handsome vocalist of The Broken Red Guitars, a garage band suddenly turning popular. Wilk is the mysterious lyrics writer from Purple Vanilla - a rival band playing nostalgic dream-pop. Despite the fact that Larry and Wilk’s fans hate each other, the two men feel a strong connection.

When Larry’s manager declares that his band will participate in a reality show together with Purple Vanilla, Larry isn’t sure of what to expect. Soon, he’s stuck in a confusing love triangle, between him, his rival Wilk, and his best friend Gilbert.

The Broken Red Guitars are an old garage band suddenly turned popular, thanks to rock covers of old, beloved pop songs. It consists of four members:

  • Larry - A handsome but somewhat insecure  man with a passion for card games. 
  • Gilbert - Larry's best friend and the lead guitarist who dates a sweet girl named Manuela.
  • Marvin - A quiet soul but a crazily skilled drummer.
  • Eve - A bass player and the heart of the team who gathered them all together.

Their greatest hit is a song titled "Your Poker Lips," which was a tribute to Larry's high school crush, his teacher Mrs. Smith, who rejected him after a failed love confession.

Purple Vanilla are a trio playing nostalgic dream-pop. It consists of three members:

  • Wilk - mysterious and highly talented lyric writer from Poland.
  • Austin - young, shy and kind composer highly inspired by Japanese visual arts.
  • Skyler -  DJ adding psychedelic vibe to the acoustic tracks, turning each song into a masterpiece able to touch young people’s hearts.

Their newest album is titled "The Lost Train” and according to Wilk, it's about a metaphorical journey through life. All songs are titled: “Station: Home,” “Station: Love,” “Station: Heartbreak,” etc.
