‘Are You The One’ Season 2 Premiere: Shocking Twist Brings More Drama

Mon, October 6, 2014 7:01pm EDT by Elizabeth Wagmeister Add first Comment

‘Are You The One’ is back for its second season of hooking up, blacking out, screaming, fighting and truth-boothing. In other words, the best train-wreck on TV has returned. Read on to watch an EXCLUSIVE look at the season…there’s a shocking twist!

We didn’t think Season 2 could be any crazier than the first round of Are You The One, but let’s just say, we’ve found our perfect match of trashy reality TV (once again). The Oct. 6 premiere doesn’t go down without jealousy, insanity or an eleventh girl — yep, there’s an extra on the island, which only means extra drama!

‘Are You The One’ Premiere: 11th Girl Shocks The House

Welcome to Puerto Rico, the land of hidden cameras, plastic handles and sloppy seconds. caught up with four of the cast members, before the Season 2 premiere, and they promised us nothing but complete insanity.

“You really can’t hide from it,” Jenni Knapmiller, 22, told us of the drama, at MTV’s Times Square headquarters. “Every square inch of that house is on camera.”

She promises that Season 2 is even crazier than the first. “You’re going to see guys fighting guys, you’re going to see girls fighting girls, you’re going to see couples fighting with each other, you’re going to see the house fighting with a couple, you’re going to see couples fighting with couples, you’re going to see it all!”

The season gets especially dramatic because there’s a huge shocking twist — an eleventh girl! Christina LeBlanc, 24, is the extra addition to the house and she stirs things up. (As if the house needed more to fight over.)

“The twist is that one guy has two matches,” Christina EXCLUSIVELY tells “It’s a race to the truth booth for me and that other girl. That other girl doesn’t know who she is, but I know that I’m the second part of the puzzle piece. I just have to find my match before she does — and if find my match before she does, she goes home empty handed. And if she finds her match before I do, I go home empty handed. I’d say it adds a lot of stress to the whole game, it kind of throws a wrench into things.”

Simply put, one girl is forced to be sent home, before the season ends. Ouch.

‘Are You The One’: Meet The Cast

Christina and Jenni, plus two of the guys, Tyler Pratt, 23, and Dario Medrano, 21, told us that the house if full of tons of big personalities…but are they all hot?

“I didn’t want to walk in and zero out all the chicks because that’s my issue, I’m very picky. I think you can call it a shallow kind of thing,” Dario tells “The majority of women were good looking so when one wasn’t working you were like, ‘Okay there’s another.’ They were all good looking chicks so it wasn’t like we were put with eight monsters and two beauties.”

Pratt tells us that not only are the ladies hot, but they’re also a bit cray-cray.

“I think every one of these girls is nuts,” Pratt laughs. “We wouldn’t be on the show if we weren’t crazy! We all suck and relationships, and we all suck at relationships because we’re crazy so if you put all of us into a house, it becomes absolute debauchery. The girls, every one of them has a crazy characteristic. It’s just a different type of crazy.”
