Are You The One? is the latest dating reality TV show to hit our screens–and it’s already a big hit in the US, so it’s sure to be a fan favourite over here too.

Kelly Bradshaw, senior VP for MTV Entertainment Brands International at Paramount, said: “We’re expanding our proven global formats strategy by bringing the first-ever UK version of popular reality series Are You The One? to MTV audiences outside of the US.

“MTV’s hit reality formats continue to travel and resonate with audiences around the world across platforms. I can’t wait to bring this one to audiences this summer — they’re going to love it.”

Find out below all you need to know about the new dating show, including how to watch.

How does Are You The One? work?

The matchmaking reality show, which premiered in the US in 2014, challenges attractive singletons to try and find their “Perfect Match.”

Unlike Love Island, which sees contestants couple up based on luck and vibes, Are You The One? scientifically matches the 10 men and 10 women beforehand–and it’s up to them to find out who science deems to be their perfect partner.

They’ll spend weeks in a Malta villa getting to know each other, going on dates, and completing challenges, which should help them uncover who their perfect partner is.

The contestants will take part in Match Up ceremonies along the way, which will let them know if they’re on the right track.

If the 20 contestants can find the 10 Perfect Matches by the end of the show, they could go home with a cash prize–and maybe love.

The UK spin-off will be presented by Joelah Noble, who has previously worked on the Women’s World Cup coverage for Chelsea Women’s FC out and for Melody VR at Wireless Festival.

How to watch

The new reality show will arrive just a week after Love Island finishes, so reality fans won’t have long to wait to get their fix.

Are You The One? will hit screens in the UK on Monday, August 8, at 10 pm.

It will be available to watch on MTV every week at 10 pm, but for those who can’t wait to find out if they’re lucky in love, all episodes will be available to stream on Paramount Plus immediately.
