“Online in Love” introduces us to Thadz, Lance, Hannah, and Aira, the pioneering contestants of “The Influencer Academy,” a groundbreaking reality competition in search of the next big social media sensation in the Philippines.

Thadz, a gifted composer, reluctantly joins the academy due to the relentless insistence of his overbearing celebrity mother, Madam Pink Rose. Despite his reserved and aloof personality, Thadz longs to make authentic connections and hopes to discover them within the academy’s walls.

Lance, with impressive dance skills and a carefree outlook on life, is determined to make his absent mother proud by becoming an influencer and achieving success on his own terms.

Hannah, nursing a broken heart, is determined to showcase her singing prowess and prove her ex-partner wrong as she embarks on a journey of self-discovery through content creation. Meanwhile, Aira envisions stardom as she becomes part of the academy, attempting to outrun the real-life issues that ominously threaten to undermine the image she projects.

Within The Influencer Academy, participants reside in the Viral Villa, equipped with cutting-edge content creation tools like cameras, ring lights, and various backdrops. Their primary goal is to accumulate i-points, which serve as the social currency fans can purchase to support their favorite influencer. Each episode features a unique challenge led by a guest artist who serves as a facilitator and mentor. After each challenge, fans have the opportunity to award i-points to their preferred contestants. Meanwhile, the enigmatic Headmasters remain behind the scenes, wielding the power to both add and deduct i-points, constantly reshaping the dynamics of the leaderboard.
