We have to admit it, of all the reality dating shows that exist right now, MTV's Are You The One is probably our guiltiest pleasure. Not only is it completely ridiculous (and often pretty trashy as couples come together and breakup and swap partners and cry over not being perfect matches), but it still makes us feel kind of smart. Because as we watch all the drama play out, we can also try to guess who among the singles, who self-admittedly suck at love, will actually be perfect matches. And when we can determine a perfect match before the competitors on the show can, well, we pretty much feel like geniuses.
Are You The One Matches
As each season progresses, couples form, whether they're perfect matches, perfect match hopefuls, or even confirmed no-matches. But how long can these reality TV show duos really last once the cameras stop rolling? Well, for some of them, a pretty freakin' long time. Sure, most couples don't make it past the reunion episode — if they even finish the show still together at all — but a lucky few have kept the love alive. Look no further than season 1's Ethan and Amber Diamond to find the perfect, perfect match.
Back in March, the couple celebrated the fourth anniversary of when they first met on AYTO. And they haven't just been together for four years — they've also gotten married and had a baby, daughter Scarlett Avery Diamond, who's turning three later this year. After a small ceremony back in Oct. 2014, the couple renewed their vows this April.
"I•AM•IN•LOVE," Amber wrote on Instagram. "In love with the way his lips curl every time he gets romantic. In love with the way she eats everything with ketchup. Everything. In love with how he'll work endless hours without a single peep of complaint. In love with how she'll pick sticks and rocks over Barbie dolls any day. In love with the way they make my heart grow bigger than I could ever imagine."
Are You The One Season 6
So who else is still together — and who may be the next Ethan and Amber? The sixth season of AYTO kicked off, Wednesday, September 20th, at 10 p.m. EST/PST on MTV. Who among the 22 unlucky-in-love singles will find their perfect matches — or, even better, real relationships? In honor of their exciting adventures, we took a look back through five seasons of perfect matches, confirmed no-matches, and post-reunion couples. And some of the results are kind of, well, messy. But other couples are giving us serious hope for the season 6 cast.
