She revealed, “One thing that is fun was in one of the very last episodes, everybody gets to get dressed up. I won’t reveal any more than that, but it looked like Jacques and Nicole were going to the prom and we were taking all these prom pictures backstage of them all dressed up. That was a lot of fun.
