MTV'S HIT MATCHMAKING SERIES "ARE YOU THE ONE? SEASON OF FATE" TO PREMIERE WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8TH AT 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - July 9, 2018 - MTV today announced that its popular dating competition series will return as "Are You The One? Season of Fate." Hosted by Terrence J., the new season will premiere on Wednesday, August 8th at 10:00PM ET/PT. The summer heats up when 22 singles jet off to Hawaii to undergo the series' signature matchmaking process in hopes of finding their "perfect match" and splitting a $1 million cash prize.

"Are You The One?" tackles the question, "If your perfect match was standing right in front of you, would you even know it?" This season the contestants have one thing in common: dysfunctional relationship habits. With the help of Terrence J., these singles will try to find their pre-selected partners as determined by a rigorous process carried out by a team of professional matchmakers and psychologists. The new "Season of Fate" will introduce a "Fate Button." In previous seasons, the contestants were able to go on dates with the person of their choosing by winning challenges. This time, the "Fate Button" will determine which couples will go on dates and ultimately play a role in who enters the "Truth Booth." Contestants will not only have to surrender to the matchmaking process, but also put their faith in fate to find their perfect match.

Terrence J., actor, producer, author and philanthropist, is widely recognized as one of Hollywood's most skilled multi-hyphenates. The three-time Emmy(R) nominee and seven-year host on BET's "106 & Park" is also executive producer and host of MTV's "SafeWord."
