‘Are You The One?’ Is The US Dating Show To Replace 'Love Island'

‘Are You The One?’ Is The US Dating Show To Replace 'Love Island'

Now that Love Island is over and the dust has settled, we can't be the only ones longing for a new dating show to fill the void.

But fear not, because we've found the perfect replacement to fill our evenings.

Taking a similar format to the ITV dating show, the premise of 'Are You The One?' is basically 10 men and 10 women cracking on, 'pieing' each other off and, of course, competing for a $1 million cash prize.

The show is hosted by American actor Terrence J, and like on the Caroline Flack-fronted UK show, contestants regularly go on dates to win each other's hearts, and pair up in 'matching ceremonies' at the end of each episode.

The difference from Love Island is that ultimately the aim is to work out who your 'perfect match' is by the end of the series, as determined by the show's experts.

Those UK residents with MTV may have already watched the show, which has run for eight seasons. However, for people without the channel, NowTV offers an exciting opportunity to catch up.

If you're already as excited to binge watch all eight seasons as we are then you should also note that there's a serious shakeup in store when you reach the eighth instalment.

Instead of purely heterosexual couples, the most recent season only includes sexually fluid contestants - meaning for the first time everybody is free to date everybody.

Adopting the tagline 'The One could be Anyone,' the show was largely praised for breaking the mould of typical heterosexual dating shows.

"Watching 'Are You The One?' is honestly so revolutionary seeing my queer & trans fam out here being pansexual and fabulous & great," one person wrote after watching the show.

While another wrote: "Is anyone watching this season of Are You the One? That it manages to be like...the exact nexus of positive queer representation AND delightful reality trash has made my entire summer."

"MTV's Are you the one is next level love island and sooo much better! (sic)," a third commented.

BRB, we've got some binging to do.
