Whereas Netflix's Love is Blind took lust out of the equation, their newest dating show, Too Hot to Handle, serves it up on a silver platter — just one you're not allowed to eat. The show invites a cast of the "hottest, horniest, commitment-phobic swipesters" to a private paradise where they think they'll have the sexiest summer of their lives. Except when they get there, they learn that in order to get their $100,000 cash prize, they have to refrain from touching each other.
Similar to Love is Blind, the goal is to foster a connection based on emotion, not attraction...something that for these singles, is easier said than done. They come from around the world but all have two main things in common: they're extremely good looking, and find one month of celibacy nearly impossible. When the twist is dropped in the trailer, they all look pretty shocked, and there's a lot of sexual frustration going around. "All we've got to do is keep our pants on," says contestant Chloe Veitch before grimacing into the camera. Will they be able to do that? She doesn't seem too confident.
Before you watch her and the rest of the cast try, get to know them — and their Instagrams — below.
The Australian 20-something loves saying "naughty possum" so much, he's already selling hoodies with his catchphrase.
Hailing from Vancouver, Canada, Francesca very quickly becomes a hot commodity at the retreat, and her Instagram shows why: the girl can rock a bikini.
Bryce lives on his boat in Los Angeles, and almost all of his IG pics are of him near or in some sort of water.
Chloe is from Essex, England, and is maybe the youngest of the bunch: she just turned 21 in March. Similar to Francesca, her Instagram is full of lingerie, bikini, and other modeling shots.
David is a fitness and nutrition coach from London who loves a good shirtless mirror pic.
Sharron is a model from New Jersey and the first guy to arrive at the retreat. He calls himself a "sex icon."
