  • Casting Couch: She earned her spot on the show by sleeping with Carson.

    • In Book 2 Chapter 6, she responds to Mackenzie's request to change partners by saying that Carson has better things to do than give special treatment to anyone who asks for it. This coming from the woman who made it to the finals because Carson was rigging everything in her favor.
  • Manipulative Bitch: In the Finale, she admits to everything she has done. From the beginning, she threw the club challenge so Jamie and Mackenzie wouldn’t suspect her, then she jumped off the boat on purpose to get the spotlight, convinced Derek to stage a showmance for Audience Votes, originated the rumor about Jamie sleeping with the staff, and even convinced Carson to rig the competition and keep her until the Finale.
  • Nominal Importance: Initially, she is the only contestant whose last name is known. (Bianca's last name would not be revealed until All-Stars, and Ryder's is revealed in Platinum.) She ends up being Jamie's opponent in the Finale.

The showrunner of America's Most Eligible. She is fired after Season 10 and replaced with Carson.

  • Lady in a Power Suit: She wears a dark red suit.
  • Mean Boss: She forces her employees and contestants to toe her line, callously gets rid of Whitney by throwing her luggage at her, and gets angry at Jen when Jamie wasn't eliminated during the first week of the show. According to Jen, Piper once sent Carson the wrong address to the Finale location, most likely on purpose, and the guy had to record his lines in post production.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Receives these quite often, mostly from Jamie and Jen.
  • Stern Teacher: If Jamie chooses to confront Piper in a Premium scene, she admits that she’s tough with Jen because she sees her potential, and doesn’t want her kindness to get in the way of her career.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: In the Premium scene, Piper gives Jamie the tip to win the entire season: be two steps ahead of the competition.

Jennifer "Jen" Espinoza

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amejen.jpg
One of the two producers of America's Most Eligible. She becomes the new showrunner at the end of the All-Stars season.

  • Bi the Way: She develops feelings for Jamie regardless of the latter's gender.
  • Hero-Worshipper: Despite knowing well that Piper is mean and ruthless, she is aspiring to become as good as her boss. She eventually changes her mind, telling Piper in the final chapter of All-Stars that she will never be like Piper, and is glad for that.
  • The Mentor: To Jamie, giving them tips on how to survive the show.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: In Chapter 18, she finally gets fed up with Piper's bullying and tells Piper to fire her... which Piper does. She gets her job back in Chapter 20 when Piper is fired.

Omar

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ameomar.jpg
The other producer of America's Most Eligible

  • The Dragon: He isn't as openly antagonistic as Piper, but he tries his best to help her create drama.
  • Foil: To Jen. Both are line producers in charge of mentoring the contestants for ratings. Unlike Jen, who has more of a conscience, Omar is fishing for more drama without hesitation, whether his contestants like it or not.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be abrasive and willing to milk drama at first, but he also cares about the wellbeing of contestants and his friendship with Jen. He becomes furious at Carson's nonchalant attitude at not getting the proper insurance forms for the snorkel date because he was concerned that someone might drown.
  • The Mentor: To Wrenn once they get promoted to junior producer while Jen gets promoted to showrunner.

Carson Stewart

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amecarson.jpg
The host of America's Most Eligible. After Season 10, he replaces Piper as showrunner, though he loses this job halfway through All-Stars.

  • Adorkable: He is constantly trying to provide new gimmicks for the show, including poems and puns. Unfortunately, Piper always cuts away from him before he can deliver them.
  • Ambiguous Disorder: It is heavily implied in All-Stars Chapter 12 that he is suffering from depression.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After years of being berated and mistreated by Piper, Carson allied with Ivy to keep her in the game, so he could have material for an ongoing conflict, which shows the producers that he has better ideas than Piper. This results in Piper getting fired and Carson taking over as the new showrunner.
  • Extreme Doormat: He doesn't dare stand up to Piper's domineering behavior towards him. At least not until the Finale.
  • I Just Want to Be Special: The main reason that he sabotages Piper and takes over her job is because he had become tired of nobody listening to his ideas for the show.
  • Playing Both Sides: He deliberately builds up the conflict between Ivy and Jamie in order to boost ratings, including helping the former to cheat in order to ensure she reaches the finals. His plan is successful; Jamie and Ivy end up in the finals together, and the executives give Carson credit for saving the show's ratings, and decide to promote him to showrunner.
  • Pungeon Master: He is very fond of puns, much to Piper's annoyance.
  • Sanity Slippage: It's implied that he's become very stressed since becoming the showrunner and can't keep up with the demands of his new job. He has an angry outburst at Mackenzie when she requests not to be partners with Vince, which is very out of character for him. He also can't seem to remember whether he did or didn't do something and Omar and Jen constantly have to remind him.
  • The Starscream: He agreed to ally with Ivy to make Piper look bad to their boss and take over as show runner.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: In-Universe. According to Adam, Carson used to be more shallow and didn't care much for the contestants, which is a huge contrast to how he presents himself in Season 10.
