In this dating series that uses modern technology to help people find love, 20-plus single men and women try to find their perfect mates. A dating algorithm is used to help quantify compatibility, using a process that includes in-depth interviews, questionnaires and compatibility testing. That data is used to identify the ideal pairs among the participants. But the results are kept a secret from the singles, who get to know one another socially and undergo weekly tests to try to pick their ideal mates while living together. If the mates they choose do not match that of the data, they must start their search over. If all of the singles are able to match up with their predetermined partners, they share the largest cash prize ever awarded by an MTV show and walk away with a potential partner for life.
This is the latest in a string of clever MTV love-themed shows: The sheer numbers, along with the humanly imperfect search for what’s presumed to be a perfect match, create an impressive variety of simultaneous romantic tensions. At the end of each episode, the contestants couple up — some happily, some otherwise — and are told how many are correctly paired, but not who. The tension between those who stubbornly stick to their guts and those who are strategically seeking the money is high right away...[I]t’s striking how casually and easily the participants try one another on for size, and how quickly they’re willing to mistrust their own instincts in favor of what the show — via the “truth booth” —tells them about their compatibility. --Jon Caramanica, The New York Times, January 20, 2014
