In April 2020, Netflix dropped ‘Too Hot to Handle,’ a dating reality game show that showcases every move of several single and horny men and women who are cloistered on an island for a few weeks. But during their stay in the swanky villa, the contestants cannot, under any circumstances, engage in any romantic or sexual activity.
Upon its premiere, the critics and audiences stated that despite its flaws, the show manages to earn a spot in the guilty pleasure binge-watch category because of its weirdly unique format and eccentric contestants. Many also pointed out its similarity to ‘Love Island.’ Now fans of the show must be wondering: when will ‘Too Hot to Handle’ season 2 release? Let’s find out!
Too Hot to Handle Season 2 Release Date
‘Too Hot to Handle’ season 1 premiered in its entirety on Friday, April 17, 2020, on Netflix.
As far as season 2 is concerned, here’s what we know. The show premiered in the time of social-distancing, and the viewers enjoyed its wild-on-paper premise. Netflix has not confirmed if the show will be renewed for another season but shows in the same vein like ‘The Circle’ and ‘Love Is Blind’ have seen quick renewals. So, there is a high chance that the network might renew the show for another season. Once that happens, we expect ‘Too Hot to Handle’ season 2 to release sometime in 2021, on Netflix.
Too Hot to Handle Season 2 Cast: Host and Contestants
The contestants of season 1 are Chloe Veitch, David Birtwistle, Francesca Farago, Haley Cureton, Harry Jowsey, Kelechi “Kelz” Dyke, Matthew Smith, Nicole O’Brien, Rhonda Paul, and Sharron Townsend.
A virtual assistant, named “Lana” is the host of the series. The host guides the participants by laying down the rules and regulations that are to be followed throughout the season.
As it’s a reality show, season 2 will feature an altogether new cast comprising “serial swipers” from across the globe. The digital host Lana will, however, return to host the second season as well.
What is Too Hot to Handle About?
The show follows ten hot and horny contestants who are sequestered from their family and friends on a tropical island for few weeks to develop romantic connections and earn a cash prize of either $10,000 each or $100,000 total. During their stay, the self-proclaimed “sexiest people in the world” are restricted from engaging in kissing, casual sexual encounters, self-gratification, or any other romantic or sexual activity. Failing to resist temptation results in a deduction from the prize money.
A digital host, “Lana,” guides the contestants throughout their stay. The experiment aims at enabling the contestants to form deeper and genuine emotional bonds with each other. Throughout the game show, the contestants attend various workshops and perform several activities ranging from spending a night in a honeymoon-suite to going on a romantic date in a hot-tub. The show tests the willpower of the contestants by helping them evolve emotionally to be a better version of themselves. As it’s a reality show, all the seasons will more or less follow the same format.
