Too Hot to Handle is the brand new series coming to Netflix to fill the void left in your streaming schedule by the dramatic conclusion to the platform’s previous hit dating series, Love Is Blind.

A steamy new dating show from Netflix, Too Hot to Handle looks a lot like ITV’s Love Island, with good looking singletons holed up together in paradise and put in situations where they will most definitely want to couple up and hook up.

But, there’s a catch. Unlike Love Island, contestants on Too Hot to Handle are not allowed to hook up at all and in order to have a chance at winning the $100,000 (£79,220) prize money, the cast members have to ‘give up sex’ and are not allowed to kiss each other for the duration of the series. 

Too Hot to Handle trailer

In the trailer for the new series, a robot ‘host’ explains to the contestants that the idea behind limiting the cast’s physical connections is to help them: ‘gain deeper emotional connections’ first with each other.

If the contestants break the rules and hook up, then they will be penalised. The cast members are told: ‘Money will be deducted for any sexual activity.’

This means if one couple decides to break the rules, everyone has there chances of winning a big cash prize cut down a little bit more.

Take a look at what is in store during the first series of Too Hot to Handle in the trailer below:

Who are the Too Hot to Handle cast?

The show starts off with 10 ‘serial swipers’, who have been cast in Season One of Too Hot to Handle.

Contestants on the show have been cast from a variety of countries, meaning that the Too Hot to Handle island residents represent some of the ‘fittest’ Tinder swipers from around the world.

Much like the folk cast in ITV’s Love Island, the contestants picked to appear on Netflix’s latest dating show are made up of models, semi-professional sports stars, hopeful actors and Instagram influencers in the making.

Cast members hailing from the UK include Essex model Chloe Veitch, Londoner Kelechi Dyke and nutrition coach David Birtwistle.

Joining the cohort from the UK is Nicole O’Brien from Ireland and model Francesca Farago from Canada, who already counts Fashion Nova as a label she has modelled for.

Other models cast in the show include Instamodel Haley Cureton from Jacksonville, Florida, Sharron Townsend from Camden, New Jersey and Australian Harry Jowsey.

Too Hot to Handle won’t be Harry’s first foray into the reality TV spotlight as the Aussie previously appeared on a show called ‘Heartbreak Island’ in New Zealand in 2018. 

Completing the initial set of contestants appearing in the first episode of the show are Georgia native Rhonda Paul and aspiring actor and author Matthew Stephen Smith.
