      Allison Keene Collider The best thing about the series are the teenagers featured, who are mostly all regular, pretty nice, mostly awkward kids. It's a refreshing change from the manufactured personalities and model looks of most young adult reality shows. Sep 4, 2020 Full Review Michael Hewitt Orange County Register We don't expect much from MTV series, so the pilot for this reality series came as a pleasant surprise. Sep 4, 2020 Full Review Hank Stuever Washington Post Seems like an ego trip. She has an awful lot invested in the notion that finding 1096 benefits all involved, with only a passing regard for how it potentially affects others. Which, in a way, makes her perfect for MTV. Sep 3, 2020 Full Review Emily Ashby Common Sense Media Their personal journey makes for riveting entertainment, but whether the emotional fallout is worth the ultimate prize for everyone involved is yet to be seen. Rated: 4/5 Sep 3, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews
