'Are You the One?' fan recap: What game is Devin playing?

Season 3 | Episode 7 | “Peanut Butter and Jealous” | Aired Nov 4, 2015

The game is taking its toll on the Are You the One? cast. MTV’s most ambitious dating show is a mystery these players can’t crack. Around this time during the last two seasons, the Are You the One? cast members slowly (but surely) started guessing their perfect matches and were over four beams. This time around, the guessing is proving too much, even without an eleventh girl running around. But it only takes one lucky match to build momentum. Could this be their week?

After another lackluster Matchup Ceremony, the Are You the One? singles head back to the house to discuss their latest failure over food and drinks. The group wonders how they can come back to win with only four Matchup Ceremonies left. Cheyenne overhears Hunter talking about his writing and comes up with an idea to break the tension: a talent show!

Some of the singles perform for the group, jumping in with rap sessions, comedy, and a bit of entertainment. Devin, on the other hand, has a more sinister idea in mind. He wants to get over Kiki as he’s done with her, but he’s not done messing with her mind. He’s going to play hard-to-get and make her jealous so that it torments her for not being with him. It’s an evil game he’s playing, and the rest of the house starts to notice.

The following morning at the challenge, the singles are working in pairs. In a challenge called “You Guys REALLY Need a Helping Hand,” the men will be blindfolded with their arms around their partner as she gives orders for stacking a tower of blocks. The men must arrange a tower to match the colors while the girls balance the tower pedestal with their legs. The first two teams to do it the fastest wins!

The balancing is hard at first, especially with instructing the boys to match the colors. Melanie and Alec pull ahead first and score the first date spot, but it’s a close race for the second team. As it gets down to the wire, Rashida and Hunter finish their tower next and will be joining on the group date.

Back at the house, the chemistry is already starting to appear. Melanie and Alec spend time together in the backyard figuring out if they’re a perfect match, but their flirting is quite noticeable. The two are positive they’re a match, much to Stacey’s frustration as she watches them get closer. Amanda, meanwhile, is feeling Stacey’s pain. While most of the house is in the kitchen chatting, Mike and Kayla are goofing off and flirting. She gets upset at them for breaking an egg, but everyone can see through her—she’s jealous! Amanda doesn’t want to lose her man.

While the two couples enjoy the group date, the house votes for one of them to head to the Truth Booth. Melanie and Alec are the lucky pair, as they’ve shown the biggest connection. They head to the Truth Booth, which reveals: NO MATCH! The seventh Truth Booth is another dud, and the group’s spirits are lower than ever, except for Tyler. He’s happy Melanie isn’t Alec’s match, as he likes her and wants her to be HIS match.

The group scrambles to find a sign or some direction. They decide to set up time for everyone to chat in couples and see if they have a connection. Most are open to the idea, and for the most part, it does work. However, Kiki can’t keep her eyes off Devin. She notices him flirting with Britni and she gets jealous. She goes to him, and Devin does what he does best—he manipulates her. He pulls Kiki in and kisses her, and the two hook up later that night.

The next morning, the girls are mad at Kiki. She’s falling back into bad habits and going to Devin, who treats her terribly. She’s sorry about the whole situation, but the girls don’t want to hear it anymore. A heartbroken and tearful Kiki finds comfort in Devin; his plan is working, but it’s hurting her more than he realizes.

Later, at the Matchup Ceremony, it’s the ladies’ turn to choose. The topic everyone wants to talk about is the Devin/Kiki situation. The house is angry at Devin for manipulating Kiki, knowing full well what he’s doing. Connor and Cheyenne are the most upset, as they can see through Devin’s lies. He’s manipulating Kiki and they want to protect her; they need him to stop. It’s a tense Matchup Ceremony, and the group needs this to be a lucky one.


  • CONFIRMED: Chelsey and Connor.
  • Rashida chooses Alec.
  • Kiki chooses Nelson.
  • Amanda chooses Hunter.
  • Britni chooses Devin.
  • Melanie chooses Chuck.
  • Hannah chooses Zak.
  • Stacey chooses Mike.
  • Kayla chooses Austin.
  • Cheyenne chooses Tyler.


No changes with this round. The group tried new pairings, yet they’ve only confirmed two new beams. Beyond Chelsey and Connor, they have no idea whom those beams belong to. The Are You the One? cast only has three more chances to guess 10 perfect matches. If this is where they turn things around, they’d better move fast.


  • Since Melanie isn’t Alec’s match, the potential odds of Rashida or Stacey being his match go up. The group would be luckier if Rashida were his match, as it would help their game more.
  • The three matches from the first round (Hunter and Britni, Zak and Kayla, and Alec and Stacey) were broken up this time around. Once again, one of these three pairs NEEDS to go into the Truth Booth next.

Are You the One? airs Wednesdays at 10/9C on MTV.
