Reality tv shows are becoming more and more popular these days. When most shows were repetitive with the same premise, MTV’s Are You The One decided to try something new. 20 conventionally attractive men and women are sent to live in a single house where they hope to find true love. Before they meet each other, the show producers use scientific technology to match up the singles with their “perfect” soulmate; this information is kept secret. The singles then go on dates to figure out their predetermined partner.
If the ten couples at the end of the season are the correct ones determined by the algorithm within ten guesses, the entire group shares a prize of a million dollars. With every wrong guess, the total prize money gets reduced. Up until the eighth season, all ten couples were heterosexual, but in an attempt to increase LGBTQ+ representation, the eighth season accepted sexually fluid relationships. Are You The One being one of the first reality tvs shows that openly featured members of the queer community, this arrangement was appreciated by fans and critics alike.
The show was such a huge hit, and it started a trend in numerous countries. Are You One Brazil in 2015, Det perfekte match in Denmark, ten couples parfaits in France, One Germany, El Matcho Perfecto in Mexico, and One Sverige in Sweden people across the globe enjoyed the distinctive concept.
A spin-off show titled “Are You The One : Second Chances” hosted by Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown was also released in 2017. It features ten couples that were deemed to be a “perfect match” in the original series. They have to put their relationship to the test by picking between a share or steal. If both choose to share, the couple is allowed to compete further. If both choose to steal, they are sent home with no money. If one chooses to share and the other steal, the person who picks share will go home with nothing, and the person that picks steal will go home with whatever money they have collected so far.
Rumoured Release Date
Fans eagerly anticipate the unique show’s ninth season, but not much is known about the new season. The last season of the show aired on June 26, 2019. The release date of the new season is set to be announced by September 2021. Because of the global pandemic, production has halted for all movies and tv shows. Are You The One isn’t an exception either.
Along with the official dates, the cast for the new season hasn’t been released either. Because of the eighth hit season, it can be assumed that the ninth season will also allow pansexual couples from America. Terrence J will most likely be the incredible host.
Expected Filming Location
With seasons 1,3,4,7, and 8 filmed in Hawaii, the ninth season will likely also be filmed there. After all, a state with a pleasant climate, beautiful beaches, and lots of sunlight is the perfect location for a reality dating show! It could also be filmed in Peurto Rico like the second season, in the Dominican Republic, as the fifth season, or in New Orleans, Louisiana, like the sixth season.
