MTV'S BRAND-NEW DATING SERIES "THE HOOK UP" TO PREMIERE WEEKDAYS STARTING MONDAY, OCTOBER 14 AT 6:00 P.M. ET/PT

SANTA MONICA, CA (September 17, 2013) - MTV is set to debut the all-new half-hour dating series "The Hook Up," airing weekdays at 6:00 p.m. ET/PT, as of Monday, October 14. "The Hook Up," hosted by Andrew Schulz from MTV2's "Guy Code" and MTV's "Girl Code," takes dating to a whole new level. The single contestants, with the help of their friends, sift through four potential daters' social media to discover their perfect match. The couple then receives a VIP date in Hollywood, CA. Check out the series trailer here.

· Round One: Four daters' silhouettes, names, hometowns, occupations and short descriptions are revealed to the single. The round ends with the elimination of one potential dater.

· Round Two: One at a time, the three remaining daters' secrets are exposed through web-creeping of their status updates, tweets, photos and videos, revealing their true online image. Each dater then has the chance to defend themselves. The round ends with the elimination of one dater, leaving two to go head-to-head in the third round.

· Round Three: The single finally meets the two remaining daters face-to-face. Schulz presents juicy secrets, quirks and habits about the daters. The single has to decide if these are deal breakers. The daters are given a chance to make their final plea before the single consults with a friend to ultimately decide who to "hook up" with.

· The Decision: The twist! Tables are turned when the winning dater gets to see the single's online dirt before accepting the date or choosing the tempting alternative prize.
