Meet the (really hunky) guys of ‘are you the one? ’

Guided by the science of matchmaking, it’s a quest for love — and cold hard cash — on “Are You The One?” But can these 10 guys tame their playa ways in time to take home the gold — and their perfect gal?

Ogle the eye candy and read up on the male counterparts, below, then join us in counting down less than a month ’til the Season 2 premiere!

Alex from Los Angeles, CA

The beekeeper-turned-comedian might be a recent Los Angeles transplant, but he’s no newbie with the ladies. Can this funny guy finally get serious about a girl once and for all?

 

Anthony from Chicago, IL

A hard-partying player who likes to brag about his sizable package, Anthony is looking to tame his frat-boy ways and find a girlfriend he can bring home to mom. But only time (and a few “Are You The One?” episodes) will tell!

 

Brandon from Las Vegas, NV

A self-proclaimed 1,022 (on a scale of one to 10, mind you), this confident prankster splits his time between one-night stands, a career in cancer research and professional poker. Can the Sin City native grow up in time to meet his perfect match?

 

Curtis from Cardiff, CA

The artistic Californian often wears his heart on his sleeve in the hopes of finding The One. Formerly a shy, skinny kid, Curtis is over being friend-zoned and is determined to snag the girl of his dreams.

 

Dario from Salem, MA

While the Massachusetts native has high hopes for love, he has a bad habit of letting his twin brother take the lead in terms of the ladies. Guided by a dream of becoming a professional baseball player, Dario plans to hit a home run with his perfect match while helping to nail a million dollars in the process.

 

Garland from St. Louis, MO

This smooth Midwesterner is attempting to reinvent his reputation as a ladies’ man by going on a cash-driven search for his soul mate. The only question is, will Garland get in touch with his inner gentleman before it’s too late?

 

John from Chicago, IL

With his law school graduation right around the corner, John is raring and ready to find The One. The only stipulation? She’d better brush her teeth and appreciate the occasional bad poetry.

 

Layton from Greenville, MS

A country boy at heart who puts his faith first, Layton takes the search for his perfect match rather seriously, and no number of Miss Wrongs will get in the way of him finding his future Mrs. … hopefully.

 

Nathan from Berrien Springs, MI

Tattoos and piercings aside, Nathan is the kind of guy any gal would be happy to bring home to mom. The Michigan native tends to fall hard — and fast — almost to the brink of scaring off the ladies. Oh, and lushes need not apply.

 

Tyler from Orlando, FL

A closet sci-fi nerd with high standards, Tyler (and his newfound confidence) is prone to professing his undying love to the ladies after a few cocktails. Will his picky nature get in the way of his search for love… and money?
