Outsports readers tuning in for Wednesday night’s premiere of MTV’s “Are You The One?” might notice a familiar face.
Former Louisiana Tech running back and Montana State rugby player Brandon Davis will appear on the MTV dating show, premiering June 26 at 9 p.m. EDT.
Davis shared his coming out story with Outsports in 2016 and has continued to live his life authentically.
“Are You The One?” casts a group of single men and women looking to find their “match” among the group. If the group can succeed in finding all perfect matches by the end of the season, the group wins $1 million.
This season of “Are You The One?” is historic, as 16 “sexually fluid” people for the first time will attempt to find their match. On the MTV cast page, Davis is listed as “Brandon David.” In his coming out story, he identified as gay.
It is fantastic to see a dating show tell the stories of queer dating on such a high-profile network like MTV.
