WATCH: 22 Strangers Look for Love in a 'Madhouse' — 'Are You the One?' Is Back!

The MTV realty dating competition gears up for season 5

They’re single and ready to mingle!

As 22 bachelor and bachelorettes search for their perfect match on MTV’s realty dating competition Are You the One?, the stakes (and emotions!) are high — and PEOPLE has the first look.

“Your feelings may be tested,” one contestant proclaims in the clip.

Prior to the show, the single men and women go through comprehensive interviews, compatibility tests and personality metrics that come together in an algorithm that identifies their ideal partner. The 11 couples, with the help of host, Ryan Devlin, fight to find their pre-selected perfect match in a house full of big personalities.


The couples only have 10 attempts at finding the winning combination. If successful, they each get an equal share of $1 million.

But, who said love was easy?

“This is a madhouse!” another contestant says.

As feelings and relationships are tested, the single men and women will often find themselves in uncomfortable love triangles, trying situations, emotional meltdowns, and steamy on-air hookups.

The big question is, “If your perfect match was standing right in front of you, would you know it?”

There’s a million reasons to find the one … literally.

Season 5 of Are You the One? premieres Jan. 11 at 9 p.m. ET on MTV.
