Are You The One: Perfect Matches & Dating Deal Breakers


Simone: Fat boys, broke n****s, little penises.
Jessica: Cheaters and liars. Nobody has time for that, especially me.
Ashleigh: Let me look through your phone and find out you're talking to another girl, I will call you out inn the middle of the night I don't care what time it is and I will throw my shit at you until you get the fuck out of my house.
Kayla: Super dominant, has to be the center of attention, think that they're always right, no faith, not a family guy, isn't good with children.
Amber: Ignorance.
Paige: If you smell, it's not gonna work.
Jacy: Hairy chest/hairy penis... Got To Go! And if your breath stink.
Coleysia: If you don't know how to dress a little bit. I can't really deal with bums.
Shanley: I won't tolerate somebody who is irrational because I'm irrational.
Brittany: If you suck in bed. I have a high sex drive and if you are boring/can't please me/we don't have good chemistry... get the fuck out.

Dillan: Somebody who doesn't share my same religious beliefs.
Wesley: Low self-esteem.
Ethan: No manners, can't drive, daddy issues.
Scali: Ugly feet.
Dre: Girls who don't keep their hair nice.
Ryan: Bad hygiene. Down with hippie chicks but she has to be clean.
Joey: When you don't smell good in all types of places.
Chris: Nikes & jeans on an every day basis even when you're going out irks me.
John: Girls who care about dumb shit like the Jonas Brothers.
Adam: Cheaters. I have to be able to trust a girl in a relationship but more importantly, if a girl isn't good in bed... she's out.

MTV’s latest dating reality show Are You the One? puts a spin on The Bachelor with compatibility testing. It's up to 20 people living together in Hawaii to correctly pair up with a romantic match that has been predetermined for them in order to split a $1 million prize between them. How did the show decide these matches? Is this really an indication that these people are meant for each other?

Entertainment Weekly questioned executive producer Tiffany Williams about the process, and it turns out it’s a bit more thorough and complicated than an online dating questionnaire.

The show’s matchmakers are marriage/family therapist and a psychologist who uses holistic therapy to match couples. “The matchmakers got pretty deep into all of the contestants’ past relationship history, so they would do these interviews with the contestants and their family, friends, and exes,” Williams says. “All that information was combined and analyzed.” While they did have numeric data from questionnaires, the matchmakers supplemented this information by watching the contestants interact and lengthy interviews.

Williams also explained how the show was cast: “Casting narrowed down the contestant applications significantly, and then looked to see which ones were perfect matches. The final pool included groups from across a spectrum of relationship experiences and backgrounds.”

Did anyone else roll their eyes when Shanley was talking to Chris last night and basically told him not to be friends with Paige because he might realize why they were a perfect match? She's so insufferable ugh 
markedglory 19th-Mar-2014 01:35 pm (UTC)
She is so insecure. Paige is going to make a move on him, but Paige is stuck by herself.
narcoticaddict 19th-Mar-2014 01:57 pm (UTC)
I'm pretty sure The least she can do is let Paige be friends with him but nooooo she insists on continuing to fuck Paige over.
intangibleamor 19th-Mar-2014 01:53 pm (UTC)
She is so fucking annoying.
lovepeace_soul 19th-Mar-2014 03:21 pm (UTC)
and that is the reason why they arent a match. i hope their relationship ends terribly.
amore 19th-Mar-2014 04:39 pm (UTC)
they're gross
sprty 19th-Mar-2014 06:34 pm (UTC)
they're the worst. i hope they both get torn into at the reunion but i'm sure it won't happen.
traversant 19th-Mar-2014 10:15 pm (UTC)
Ikr ugh I hate her
markedglory 19th-Mar-2014 01:34 pm (UTC)
last night's ep was a trip. The white party should have lasted a bit longer.

bring back the dailies for this show, mtv
claudieko 19th-Mar-2014 01:35 pm (UTC)
Apparently, Brittany and Adam will get along.
stonemesilly 19th-Mar-2014 01:38 pm (UTC)
They both said they had animalistic sex with each other in the boom boom room.

omg all i care about is the jonas brothers, dont break my heart john!
katiefitch 19th-Mar-2014 01:40 pm (UTC)
Jacy is sooooo messy, like girl how are you stuck between the two worst guys in the house
narcoticaddict 19th-Mar-2014 01:47 pm (UTC)
I definitely can't see JJ an Ashleigh getting along even though they're a perfect match.  JJ is sooooo messy and ia with him an Scali being the worst guys in the house.
dumpyfledgling 19th-Mar-2014 03:20 pm (UTC)
I still can't wrap my mind around how JJ & Ashleigh can be a perfect match. I look at her and I look at him and I'm just like...NEVER!
heybrittanyxo 19th-Mar-2014 02:02 pm (UTC)
lol ikr and I feel bad that Ashleigh is gonna get stuck with JJ

smoking is such a huge turnoff for me but the last couple guys i've hooked up with are smokers (so much smoking in europe, ugh!)
i casually take out a piece of gum and split it in half because cig breath is so fucking nasty

I want an extended cut of that challenge with the guys exes bc they didn't show all of them or everything they said!! throw us a bone mtv
refaeli 19th-Mar-2014 03:23 pm (UTC)
I wish they'd do the girl AND guy exes!

Edited at 2014-03-19 03:24 pm (UTC)
blowinmoneyfast 19th-Mar-2014 03:31 pm (UTC)
omg that challenge was such a mess. over half of the exes had such a sidechick mentality
pippivirgin spoilers19th-Mar-2014 01:49 pm (UTC)
After last night I am mostly just pleased that the real perfect match of the house (Kayla & Paige) get to reunite and Kayla can get away from all of the other idiots in the house.

Also Ethan disgusts me
markedglory Re: spoilers19th-Mar-2014 01:52 pm (UTC)
I liked Ethan better when he wasn't trying to be slick.
narcoticaddict 19th-Mar-2014 01:55 pm (UTC)
I loved him an Amber as a match before all that shit came about with him and Kayla. I feel like Amber is so genuine and deserves so much better :(
blowinmoneyfast Re: spoilers19th-Mar-2014 03:00 pm (UTC)
i thought his behavior w the whole kayla thing was really weird, because there wasn't really anything wrong with what he did. they've all kissed each other, nbd. i'm guessing the kayla stuff might have even happened when amber ~broke up with him~ for adam and his wack sex talk
markedglory 19th-Mar-2014 01:53 pm (UTC)
I think Dill + Coleysia might have lasted beyond the show.
blowinmoneyfast 19th-Mar-2014 02:44 pm (UTC)
chris and shanley too ugh
tobiveil12 19th-Mar-2014 06:45 pm (UTC)
Good their hot
windinthewires 19th-Mar-2014 01:55 pm (UTC)
'Can't drive' is a weird turn-off for a guy to have.
homicidalslayer 19th-Mar-2014 02:29 pm (UTC)
Not if you've ever had someone treat you like their own personal chauffeur, it isn't.
I cut an FWB out of my life because for pretty much that exact reason.
blowinmoneyfast 19th-Mar-2014 03:02 pm (UTC)
what the other commentor said, but also that guy was in a really really bad car accident and broke both his legs, so i'm sure he might have some anxiety about driving sometimes so it'd probably be nice if he didn't have to do it all the time
windinthewires 19th-Mar-2014 03:10 pm (UTC)
Aah I didn't know that. Fair enough.
markedglory 19th-Mar-2014 02:09 pm (UTC)
sounds like a winner.

Ring the alarm and GTFO.

I assume he means social Darwinism? Because I don't see believing in evolution as something to get upset over.
arilicious 19th-Mar-2014 04:46 pm (UTC)
Sounds to me like the reason he supports Darwinism is not because he believes in evolution per se, but it sounds to me like he's more of a eugenicist.
I'd say get out.
kofo4 19th-Mar-2014 02:10 pm (UTC)
despite everything i still find ryan so endearing, i wish ash was his match, she shouldn't have to be stuck with JJ. scali deserves to die alone.
abortions 19th-Mar-2014 02:15 pm (UTC)
ryan is the absolute greatest, i am in love with him. mte about ashleigh tbh, i like jessica as well but come onnnn

and ia scali is a sociopath
blowinmoneyfast 19th-Mar-2014 02:45 pm (UTC)
same. he and ash would be so cute. nothing against jess and ia 100% about scali is he terrible
refaeli 19th-Mar-2014 03:26 pm (UTC)
whenever my sister and i watch we literally have our jaws dropped to the floor when scali says his awful misogynistic shit like when he flat out slut shamed paige after chasing her around the house and then continued to call her out in public in front of everyone
sprty 19th-Mar-2014 06:41 pm (UTC)
ryan is like the drake of "are you the one?" lmao. he's a sweetheart. it bugs me how he's mocked for not being a stereotypical man's man and displaying ""effeminate qualities"" or whatever. scali is terrible. he should join chris and shanley's relationship so they can be a trio of shitty people.
blowinmoneyfast 19th-Mar-2014 06:46 pm (UTC)
hhahaha such a good description. ryan is the best
abortions 19th-Mar-2014 02:15 pm (UTC)
when is mtv airing the reunion??? this show is the greatest, can't believe its almost over
blowinmoneyfast 19th-Mar-2014 02:46 pm (UTC)
there are 2 episodes left so i'm guessing the reunion will be the week after
violet_crumble9 19th-Mar-2014 02:16 pm (UTC)
i always see the title of these posts and think it's about this amazing show of almost the same title:

OMG yes! My friend's mom is completely obsessed with this show and keeps trying to get her to audition for it.
violet_crumble9 19th-Mar-2014 03:42 pm (UTC)
She totally should! And be like the women that are snarky and hilarious. They're A+.
gubercootichunx 19th-Mar-2014 03:48 pm (UTC)
omg is this that chinese dating show with 24 women? my mom watches this NON-STOP and idgi...also that "can you feel it?" song gets on my nerves jaja.
chisels 19th-Mar-2014 04:16 pm (UTC)
I need to know what this is and where to watch it.
Thanks bb :D
homicidalslayer 19th-Mar-2014 02:21 pm (UTC)
Paige: If you smell, it's not gonna work.
Ryan: Bad hygiene. Down with hippie chicks but she has to be clean.
Joey: When you don't smell good in all types of places.

beatlesluv 19th-Mar-2014 02:27 pm (UTC)
