The spectacular, modern, multi-story mansion that the American Idol finalists moved in to last week once was the set of Playboy TV’s reality series Swing, a show on which “real couples [have] the opportunity to live out their erotic curiosities” at the “Swing House,” according to the network. In other words, the couples have sex with each other.
Season two debuts April 21, and this preview of the first episode clearly shows the house in multiple shots; anyone who saw clips from the results show would know that. TMZ first reported the multiple uses of the space, although hilariously by reporting that “Sources tell TMZ” that it’s the same place, which means those sources could be anyone who watched two clips.
Really, this isn’t that big of a deal or surprising–the house is probably rented for productions frequently–and what happened in the hotel rooms, beds, and bathrooms that the finalists were previously staying in is probably a lot more shocking, but there’s just no videotape of that.
Here’s the preview of Playboy TV’s show with images from the house:
