Second Season Cast Announced with a Game-Changing, "Eleventh Girl" Twist

Season One Fan Favorites and "Perfect Matches" Ethan and Amber Celebrate their Upcoming Child with "Are You The One? Special Delivery" Baby Shower Reunion

NEW YORK, NY (August 27, 2014) - MTV's hit matchmaking experiment, "Are You The One?," returns to tackle the question, "If your perfect match was standing right in front of you, would you even know it?" Mirroring last season's successful formula, the show will follow a group of 10 single women and 10 single men who are self-admittedly horrible at relationships, as they jet off to Puerto Rico in the hopes they'll leave their bad relationship habits behind and surrender to their perfect match. "Are You The One?" will air globally on MTV this fall, beginning with the United States premiere on Monday, October 6 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Prior to arrival, the singles will undergo a rigorous matchmaking process involving in-depth interviews and compatibility testing, using a team of professional matchmakers, psychologists, and the contestants' family, friends, and exes. An ideal match for each person will be selected - the catch is that the results are not revealed. The singles will begin their quest to find their perfect match in the house. If the entire group succeeds in finding their matches during the season, they'll walk away not only with love, but their share of one million dollars. All 10 couples must match, or they'll all go home without the cash!

Adding to the drama this season is a twist that will make finding the perfect match more challenging, as an eleventh girl will join the house as a double match for one of the guys. It's a "race to the relationship," as our eleventh girl will be immediately eliminated from the game if she fails to find her perfect match before her female counterpart matches with her man. The "eleventh girl twist" is sure to keep the house and fans guessing as love triangles, partnering possibilities and co-ed drama abound. How well can they play the game when their hearts are on the line?

This season's cast has a tough act to follow, as last season's group went "10 for 10" and all correctly paired up with their perfect matches. The show's matchmaking formula proved to be on point as fan favorite Ethan Diamon proposed to his perfect match, Amber Lee, during the reunion show earlier this year, and now the couple is expecting their first child in December. Ethan, Amber and the entire first season cast will return for a one-hour baby shower/reunion special as a lead up to the second season premiere.
