Diandra Delgado was a contestant on MTV’s Are You The One where 22 singles have to find their perfect match for the chance to win 1 million dollars. Throughout her journey she speaks about life after the show and the many opportunities coming her way.
In March of 2017 Diandra, 22, applied for season 6 of MTV’s show Are You The One. About a month later she received an email back asking for more pictures, videos of her life, and lengthy questionnaires that needed to be filled out to get to know her better.
“It was very overwhelming. I never expected an email back and all the questionnaires that were multiple pages, at that, really made this experience feel so real. The application was just a result of me being bored one night.”
Upon completing all of these requests, Diandra was contacted again and flown out to LA where she would do the final interview and casting process with all other potential candidates hoping to be one of the 22 singles. After that weekend, when she got back home, it was a waiting game.
“The night I got the call I remember I almost didn’t pick up. I was getting ready with my girls to go out and had my phone charging when I got a call from an unknown number. I picked it up at the last second and my heart dropped, I heard nothing that was said after I heard the words you are one of the girls chosen for season 6 of Are You The One” Didi explained. About 5 minutes later she was emailed her itinerary that said she would be flown out to New Orleans in 2 weeks to film Season 6 of Are You The One. Her dream came true.
Her experience on the show was one she will remember forever and was the stepping stones to set off her career.
Diandra, now 22, has always wanted a future in the media and this was her big break. Still going to school at BCC, majoring in Broadcasting and The Media, she hopes to transfer over to Montclair State University to continue the journey to her Bachelors pursuing the same major.
Being on Are You The One resulted in Diandra receiving a huge fan base and her followers on all social media to sky rocket. This has given her the opportunities to have her name known, better her YouTube channel, and make connections with different brands and influencers to collab with.
“I’m excited to see what the future has in store for me. I’m going to continue to reach for the stars and shape the life I’ve always dreamed of. I can’t wait to take all of my loved ones along with me on this journey. This is only the beginning” said Diandra.
