MTV is set to premiere the first sexually fluid reality dating competition show in the United States, called Are You the One?
In Are You The One?, 16 singles head off to Hawaii in hopes of finding their “perfect match” and splitting a $1 million cash prize.
Although the show was first launched in 2014, for the first time ever, all the singles identify as sexually fluid, meaning there are no gender limitations in perfect matches, and finding love is fair game.
The eighth season introduces Dr Frankie, a relationship expert who works with the singles to help them become better daters and navigate between drama, poor choices and reoccurring patterns in relationships.
Dr Frankie also helps the singles identify current disaster-dating trends such as ghosting, benching and stashing, and tests them on their willingness to fall into these painful trends.
Host Terrence J. digs deeper with the cast than ever before, helping coach and guide them to tap into their true feelings and follow their hearts.
“From coming out moments to discovering sexual and gender identity, Are You The One? tells powerful stories about navigating relationships and finding love as a sexually fluid individual for the first time ever on a reality dating show,” said the producers.
Last year, a similar reality dating series called The Bi Life debuted in the UK, featuring a group of bisexual British singletons finding love in Barcelona. It was hosted by RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up and UK Celebrity Big Brother 2018 winner, Shane Jenek, also known as Courtney Act.
The new season of Are You The One? will premiere on Wednesday, June 26 in the US.
