Plot Synopsis

In this social experiment in modern love, a group of men and women travel to an island paradise, where they live in the same house as they try to identify their perfect matches. The catch? None of the singles know who their soul mate might be, even though a dating algorithm has already matched the couples based on a rigorous matchmaking process that quantifies compatibility and using a team of professional matchmakers, psychologists, and the participant's family, friends and exes. Throughout the course of the season, each of the potential lovers must uncover the mystery of their soul mate's identity. In addition to getting to know one another socially, the singles undergo weekly tests of physical attraction, personality traits, relationship history assessments and more. During the quest to pick their match, the singles discover that following their heart might feel right, but if the data does not make a match they have to start their search over, leaving budding relationships behind causing tension and despair. At the end of each week, the potential lovers scramble to find who they believe is their perfect match. If all the couples match up with their pre-determined partners within 10 attempts, they will share the $1 million cash prize. In Season 1, 20 singles -- 10 men and 10 women -- lived together in the same house on the Hawaiian island of Kauaia and all correctly paired up with their perfect matches. The show's matchmaking formula proved to be on point as fan-favorite Ethan Diamon proposed to his perfect match, Amber Lee, during the reunion show. In the second season, 21 singles -- 10 men and 11 women -- head to Puerto Rico in the hopes they'd leave their bad relationship habits behind and surrender to their perfect match. In a new twist, an eleventh woman joined the house as a double match for one of the guys, and she would be immediately eliminated from the game if she fails to find her perfect match before her female counterpart matches with her man. Season 3 premiered on Thursday, September 24, 2015 at 11pm ET/PT on MTV, and then moved to its regular timeslot -- Wednesdays at 10pm -- the following week. If the singles fail to make at least one true match (known in the game as a "blackout") at any point during the weekly matchup ceremonies in Season 3, the group is penalized with the loss of $250,000 -- so in this version of the game, four blackouts means no jackpot. The 20 relationship seekers included 10 women and 10 men. Season 4 of ARE YOU THE ONE? premiered on Monday, June 13, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT on MTV, featuring a game-changing twist that for the first time will truly test the theory, "If your perfect match was standing right in front of you, would you even know it?" On day one, immediately after meeting in a house in Hawaii, 10 single women will line up across from 10 single men and the group will be asked who believes in "love at first sight." The first three people to raise their hands and acknowledge their belief in the notion will be asked to walk over to their potential perfect match. The three couples will then go on dates as the rest of the cast deliberates which couple to send to the first truth booth of the season. If the couple is determined to be a match, not only will they prove that love at first sight is possible but, $250,000 will also be added to the million-dollar jackpot. The first perfect match will then set off to spend the rest of their time in the remote honey moon suite. Throughout the season, the couples will be forced to rule with both their heads and their hearts if they hope to succeed in love and money. If at any point during the weekly matchup ceremonies the singles fail to make at least one perfect match (known in the game as a "blackout"), the group will be penalized with the loss of $250,000. What does that mean? Four blackouts means no jackpot. If all 10 couples successfully find each other, they'll walk away not only with love, but their share of one million dollars.

Season 5 of ARE YOU THE ONE? premiered on Wednesday, January 11, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT on MTV, with host Ryan Devlin welcoming 22 love hopefuls to the Dominican Republic, where they will try to pair up with their pre-selected ideal partner as determined by a rigorous, pre-season matchmaking process carried out by a team of professional relationship gurus and psychologists. With only 10 tries to find the winning combination the love seekers will have to follow their hearts if they want to walk away with love and their share of one million dollars.
