'Are You The One?' Is Returning To MTV With First Sexually Fluid Cast
Are You the One? is about to make history when it returns to MTV.
The long-running dating program, which will premiere soon on MTV Australia, is the first series in the United States to feature a sexually fluid cast. The show's signature format -- singles heading off to paradise in hopes of discovering their "perfect match" and splitting a $1 million prize if they find each other over the course of 10 weeks -- remains. But there's one difference from previous installments: All the participants this season identify as sexually fluid, meaning there are no gender limitations when it comes to their PM. Finding love is fair game -- so come one, come all.
Host Terrence J will be back, and this season will also feature Dr. Frankie, a relationship expert who specializes in working with the LGBTQ+ community. Dr. Frankie will work with the singles to help them become better daters and navigate between drama, poor choices and recurring patterns in relationships. In addition, Terrence will work with the love hopefuls like never before, coaching and guiding them to tap into their true feelings and follow their hearts.

It’s an uncomfortable feeling to be in life limbo. Unsettling to be searching for jobs yet again, on my last penny, hoping for a win but often expecting a loss. I’m not a stranger to the void, the downward spiral of fear, self doubt, and self inflicted solitude. In fact, I often revel in it as if it’s a comfort zone for me. But this limbo is different. This time around I’m mentally stronger than I have ever been. I understand my intricacies, flaws, and strengths and can move forward accordingly. Tomorrow I will be 10 months clean from the drug addiction that plagued me for years. Last time I sat in this Venice apartment there was only a hint of my true personality left underneath layers of unhealthy coping mechanisms. Now I wake up rested, have some coffee, go to yoga, and plan my day with my end goals in mind. I practice rigorous honesty with myself and others, cut out toxic relationships, and have a newfound gratitude for my loved ones. Yes, it is terrifying to return to the place where I lost my mind. Flashbacks of late nights turned to early mornings, suppressing the dark truth that I was risking my life every single day. Yet it is the most empowering feeling in the world to know that I’ve found myself again... and I wouldn’t risk losing her for anything.
