Created by Laura Gibson and Charlie Bennett after they got the basic idea from the well-loved ‘Seinfeld’ episode entitled ‘The Contest,’ Netflix’s ‘Too Hot to Handle‘ is a reality dating series. The rules here are simple: a group of young and attractive individuals from all across the globe has to forge meaningful connections with no physical intimacy. This celibacy challenge includes no kissing, no heavy petting, and no self-gratification of any kind. And as we have seen over its two-season run, that is torture for the contestants. So, let’s find out how the second season’s cast is faring now, shall we?

From Newport, South Wales, Cam Holmes is a self-proclaimed “sexy nerd” who loves to have a good time and get crafty with the ladies whenever he deems fit. When he joined the program, he also admitted that he tends to jump ship whenever a bond gets serious due to fear of getting or causing hurt. Yet, as time passed, we saw him grow in a way few individuals rarely do on reality television. So now, with a new outlook on life, Cam continues to work as a personal trainer and model with FOMO models. He appears to be enjoying the opportunities his new job as a public figure has brought to him as well.
