‘are you the one? ’ dating resumes: wes and jessica just want to put a smile on your face

You can cook a bowl of rice in 60 seconds, but is it enough time to prove you’re worthy of true love? Premiering Tuesday, January 21, “Are You The One?” will challenge single men and women to find their perfect matches, but before the game gets underway, you can learn all about the cast members’ relationship potential through the people who know them best: themselves! We tasked the entire group with selling their most attractive features in under one minute, and we’ll be rolling out their video dating resumes in pairs each day up until the premiere. Check out today’s testimonials below.

In high school, the nice guys and quirky girls are usually passed over in favor of the quarterback or cheerleader, but on “Are You The One?” they’ll finally have their moments in the sun. When the show premieres tonight, you’ll meet Jessica and Wes, and they have one simple objective: to find a partner who will appreciate their good-natured, happy-go-lucky selves.

“I’m really goofy, so I think that makes me a really dateable person,” Jessica says in the first resume below as she peppers her pitch with crazy faces. “I’m awkward, but it’s OK, because everyone loves awkward people.” Wes, who calls himself a “bundle of energy and a spirit-lifter” in the second clip, is confident he’ll find a mate because he checks the nice guy box that’s rarely ticked in 2014. “Nowadays, it seems like girls have a hard time finding that, so that’s why I’m somebody’s perfect match,” he says.

Check out the vids, and see if these two can manage to find true love when “Are You The One?” premieres tonight at 11/10c!
