If you thought the first season of  "Revenge" was twisted, just wait for the second.

"Believe it or not, the show is going to get even darker," says Gabriel Mann, who plays computer whiz kid (and Bill Gates-like gazillionaire) Nolan Ross on ABC's hot, guilty-pleasure drama.

Mann, a former model, has been in town for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, catching runway shows for menswear lines by Billy Reid and Tommy Hilfiger.

"It's been the thrill of all our lives," says Mann, of the unexpected success of the show, which tracks the schemes of ill-fated Hamptons residents.

What's more unexpected: Mann's never actually been to the Hamptons, not for the series (which shoots in California), and not even in his modeling days.

"No, I wasn't hanging at P. Diddy's White Party," he says, laughing.

But now, isn't he curious?

"I am, but I don't think I can go there now," he says. "I'm afraid if I went and saw all the buildings and locations and things that don't match "our" Hamptons -- where's the Grayson mansion, the Stowaway bar? I'd drive myself nuts."
