Here Is Your “Are You The One?” Bisexual Dating Show Drinking Game

As we head into yet another gripping episode of everybody’s favorite dating show “Are You The One?” tonight, it’s important that we prepare ourselves in one of two ways: drinking a lot of alcohol (if that’s what you’re into) or hydrating a lot (a good idea for everybody, but also probably more appealing than alcohol for people who don’t drink!) Are you ready to find your one true love? Will it be a small serving of liquor or a big swig of water? I hope mine is Jasmine.

  1. How about Remy or Basit delivering another all timer of a line. You’ll know it if you hear it.

    Examples from previous episodes:

    Remy: “this show should be called Are You The Bottom For Me?”

    Basit: “Jonathan is trying to tell me his perfect match is with someone whose quote of the day is ‘I Love Holes!’”

  2. I watched this for the first time last night! Out of curiosity and also to clean my palette after watching a few minutes of The Bachelorette the other day (omg, straight people are not ok on that show).

    I still have no idea how I feel about it. It made me feel really, really old. Like way older than my 49 years.

    Bottom line – I’m so glad this exists and I’m not sure I’ll actually watch another episode.
