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 match couples. 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 one’s Ethan and Amber Diamond to find the perfect “perfect match.”
Back in March 2017, 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 just turned three. After a small ceremony back in Oct. 2014, the couple renewed their vows last 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.” Not only that, the couple also recently announced even more news — they’re expecting again!
“Santa left us something a little EXTRA special this year!” Amber wrote on Instagram. “This time next year, we will be 4! We would like everyone to help welcome our next addition to the Diamond family, coming June 2018!!!” Ethan added in his own adorable post. These two just keep renewing our faith in love.
But they’re not the only MTV Are You The One parents these days. From season one, Chris T. and his girlfriend also have a little one, while Jessica and her husband have two, a son and a daughter they’re expecting later in 2018. Oh, yeah, and there’s the fact that season three’s Cheyenne had a flirtation on The Challenge with Cory from The Real World — and that they had a secret baby. Cheyenne’s been showing off her adorable daughter Ryder on Instagram pretty much since her birth in April, but in December Cory decided to go public as her dad. The two don’t seem to be together, but they are co-parenting, and doing a pretty good job at that.
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 wrapped up this past December, and there was plenty of drama. Who among the 22 unlucky-in-love singles found love — and who managed to keep it at least until the reunion show? We took a look back through six 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 AYTO love.
