The ‘Are You The One’ Season 7 Cast Is Done With Duds & Serious About Finding Love
The Bachelorette roses may be stowed away for now, but there's no need to worry, because (televised) love is still in the air. Its reality TV tenure may not be as long as that of Bachelor Nation's, but MTV's Are You The One is about to begin its seventh season, which means 22 new singles will be looking for their soulmates made in professional matchmaking heaven. The stakes are high, and so is the cash prize. So here's to hoping that each member of the Season 7 cast of Are You The One can make it past the drama and into the right person's heart.
If you don't know how it goes, the 22 cast members are secretly matched, by professionals, to the person among them with whom they're most compatible. The challenge is to find that person, and well, actually love them. At the end of each episode, after the cast submits their best guesses, the number of correct matches is revealed — who those couples are is not. As if love wasn't stressful enough.
After a dry spell in its earlier seasons, the Season 6 cast made history by correctly uncovering all 11 couples in the season finale. Up until then, only one couple had been confirmed by the matchmakers. That means they walked away splitting the cash prize of one million dollars, but it was a close one. Courtesy of MTV's official bios, meet the lucky 22 who get to try their hands at doing the same thing on Season 7.
