Selling Sunset season 4 review: Christine Quinn single-handedly carries Netflix’s most-bingeable show on her Swarovski-encrusted padded shoulders

Before Selling Sunset erupted overnight, in part down to pandemic-induced hunger for property porn and any real-life chaos unrelated to Covid, few had ever had the chance to snoop around $12million homes.

No wonder then as the property market feared collapse, Selling Sunset boomed with the office politics of the Oppenheim Group becoming the most compulsive television since they hey day of Big Brother, when reality TV fans of the noughties resorted to watching a live feed of bird noises from the moment they woke up, to the moment the main show kicked off at 9pm.

It took two seasons before Mary Fitzgerald, Crishell Stause, Heather Young, Maya Vander, and their pint-sized bosses David and Jason Oppenheim became household names, the breakout pop culture stars of the pandemic.

But, look no further than season four of Selling Sunset for proof they would be nowhere without real-life soap b***h, and self-confessed and proud ‘villain’ Christine Quinn.

It’s been a year since Selling Sunset’s third season wrapped with Christine’s absurd $1million (£736,000) wedding to retired tech entrepreneur, the setting for predictable fall outs with the backdrop of fake snow and black swans.

Naturally, there’s been plenty of ‘unscripted’ drama since then.

After failing to shift that $75million house because even in the Hollywood hills, few have that kinda change lying around, Davina Portraz has quit The Oppenheim Group and is taking her overpriced properties elsewhere; Crishell is now a soap-star-turned estate agent-turned Dancing With The Stars star looking for her own house following her divorce with This Is Us heartthrob Justin Hartley; Heather is engaged; Mary and her husband Romain Brett are fine; Jason and Brett are still buying houses like the rest of us treat ourselves to a new T-shirt now and again; and Christine is pregnant with her first child, reluctantly about to embark on maternity leave.

With Christine and Davina’s desks now empty, there’s space for two new agents at the office. Meet Emma Hernan and Vanessa Vilela, who perfectly fit the Oppenheim mould – aka must replicate a member of Real Housewives or appeared in a soap opera.

But whether she’s in the office shooting daggers at her colleagues or at home raising her first born, Christine somehow still manages to carry Selling Sunset entirely on her own Swarovski encrusted shoulders.

Season four revolves almost solely on Christine’s historic feud with new girl Emma, as well as her fall outs with literally every one else to cross her path – with the exception of Amanza Smith, who has either seen the soft side of Christine not visible to the naked eye or, like the rest of us, appreciates the rare TV gold she beholds.

Outside any Christine-related drama, the most compelling storyline in season four is the sexual tension between Crishell and Jason but even then there’s absolutely no mention or reference to what we now know is a full-blown relationship after they were spotted snogging on a yacht. All of that, however, it yet to come in season five…

The Selling Sunset women do, however, continue to be a class act: Amanza is a total wonder woman as she balances being a single mother, fighting her ex-husband in court and stealthily working her way up the career ladder, Crishell is moving on up after learning her Hollywood heartthrob ex is now fully shacked up with another woman and matriarchal Mary, amid all the schoolground bitching, somehow manages to come out of it all with maturity and dignity – which is no easy feat..

Still, take Christine out of the equation and there is quite literally no plot, just property.

Thankfully, she knows how to deliver the goods.

What is a baby shower without a live sloth? Well, according to Christine, it’s not a baby shower at all so lo and behold she gets what she wants.

Christine may be out of sight for Crishell, Mary and Heather but she’s certainly not out of mind and does her absolute best to keep it that way. In turn, Christine Quinn and Christine Quinn alone makes sure Selling Sunset maintains its place as the most binge-able show on television.

Selling Sunset season four is available to stream on Netflix from November 24.
