The 24-year-old reality TV star continued: "I'm out here looking for love and I just can't find it. It's not in the DMs, it's not anywhere. I can't find it. So if you do know about me, you know I have a 3-year-old little boy. He means everything to me. And yeah, I'm just trying to figure out who's the one. Trying to take somebody out on a date."

Are You the One? is an American reality TV series that airs on MTV. It follows 20 people who are living together in a tropical destination to find their perfect match.
