These hopeful romantics participated in a rigorous matchmaking process using a unique dating algorithm created to help quantify compatibility. The result? Recommended matches for the 20 singles with the goal of meeting the perfect partner. Using this technology, 10 ideal pairs have been identified and will ultimately come face-to-face with their true match – the catch is that the results were kept a secret from the singles.
Throughout the course of the season, each of the potential lovers must uncover the mystery of their “soul mates” identity. “Are You the One?” is slated to air globally on MTV’s channels around the world. It will premiere on Friday, 14 February at 6pm (WIB), 7pm (SIN/HK/PH), 8pm (MAL). Subsequent episodes will air every Sunday, starting 16 February at 8pm (WIB), 9pm (SIN/HK/PHIL), 10pm (MAL).
Viewers are also invited to try out MTV’s Match Machine app at www.mtvasia.com/matchmachine, which will compare users’ profiles with their friends to help them find their perfect match.
“Our millennial audience has no trouble dating or hooking up but making a deeper commitment is more challenging for them,” said Susanne Daniels, President of Programming, MTV. “‘Are You the One?” will provide clues to the contestants to help them find their perfect match. There’s unexpected emotional twists as they find it trickier than they imagined to break apart in the name and the game of finding true love.”

“Are You the One?” will select 10 single women and 10 single men who have had no luck in finding lasting love and will first conduct a thorough assessment, using a team of professional matchmakers, psychologists, and the participant’s family, friends and exes, to determine their other half.
The process will include in-depth interviews, questionnaires and compatibility testing to achieve the ultimate results. Produced on the picturesque island of Kauai, Hawaii, the 20 singles chosen will live together knowing that their perfect match may be in the room right next to them.
Viewers will be able to follow the ups and downs as each person gets potentially one step closer to finding romantic bliss, and their reactions can be as surprising as their choices.
In addition to getting to know one another socially, the 20 singles will 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 20 potential lovers will scramble to find who they believe is their perfect match. If all 10 couples match up with their pre-determined partners within 10 attempts, they will share the largest cash reward MTV has ever offered and more importantly, will walk away with a prized romance.
