MTV ANNOUNCES 22 SINGLES LOOKING FOR LOVE ON MTV'S HIT MATCHMAKING SERIES "ARE YOU THE ONE?"

Season Premieres Wednesday, January 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - December 8, 2016 - MTV today announced 22 love hopefuls who'll be joining the fifth season of hit matchmaking series, "Are You The One?" Heating up airwaves as the perfect cure to the winter blues, these adventurous singles are ready to turn their backs on dysfunctional relationship habits and surrender to the series' signature matchmaking process. "Are You The One?" returns for a new season of perfect matches and passionate possibilities on Wednesday, January 11 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

"Are You The One?" is MTV's wildly-popular dating competition spectacle that strives to answer the question, "If your perfect match was standing right in front of you, would you even know it?" The rules may be simple, but the game of love is never easy as 11 couples, with the help of host, Ryan Devlin, try to pair up with their pre-selected ideal partner as determined by a rigorous, pre-season matchmaking process carried out by a team of professional relationship gurus and psychologists. With only 10 tries to find the winning combination the love seekers will have to follow their hearts if they want to walk away with love and their share of one million dollars.

Joining the eclectic cast this season is Tyler, whose upbringing on the mean streets of South Boston has led to a "fake it 'til you make it" attitude that causes him to lead girls on. Alicia, who's headstrong in life and love and can never loose an argument. Derrick, the star college athlete who can grab attention quickly, but finds himself alone when he continually fails to commit. And Carolina who's fatal flaw lies in her deep commitments to relationships - even when they're dysfunctional.
