Heldman September 20, at What made you want to host AYTO? I was looking through the portfolio and this show just caught my eye. I watched one episode and then I watched 20 episodes. How are you going to put your own spin on the hosting gig compared to Ryan Devlin, who hosted the first five seasons? As soon as I walk in the building, it just means all this extra flavor that I bring to the table. I just had fun, man. Devlin had that kind of choreographed movement he did as he counted the light beams.
Are you going to do a version of that? So I have a lot of experience being around it and I hope I added some maturity. Assuming the group has some rough weeks finding matches, what advice are you giving them? We all think we know what we want, right?
We all say we want to look great and eat healthily, but then as soon as ice cream and cookies and pizza come out, we go for the wrong meal. My advice would be for people to stay true to themselves and follow their heart, but also follow your mind and be smart and be mindful of the things they know are good for them. So you do really believe love is possible from this show?
Look, I live in L. If you meet a girl on a Friday night, it might be a week before you can take her on a date. It takes a long time before you can get to a point where you can have a deep conversation with a girl. Having that intimate, one-on-one time week after week and day after day really leads to some intimate bonds.
I think you can find the perfect person when you really get to know people. I think, for a lot of them, it was an experience for them to get to know people on this level, and for them to get to know themselves. And we have a track record. Are You the One? So instead of watching a spider monkey jump from a tree, that has nothing to do with the show, you get to watch [the singles] go on a date to a haunted mansion and see how they react being around ghosts.
You get to see alligators. It really plays into the show different ways. MTV Are there certain personalities we should keep an eye on? In the first episode, you get to see [a love triangle between] Malcolm and Diandra and Nurys. Keith is our resident genius. Are there any players you think would perform particularly well on that series?
We have stars on this show. We have castmates this season that burst off the screen. We have people that are Fun. Watch, with a lot of energy, a lot of personality.
