‘Too Hot to Handle’ is an exciting dating-based reality series but with an interesting spin. Attractive singles are placed together in a tropical paradise, but the idea is to develop a deeper emotional connection. And to do that, they must not indulge in any sexual activity. In fact, doing so will literally cost them! Every time contestants break a rule, money is deducted from the group’s shared prize pot.
For season 3, stakes have been upped as the prize has been doubled to $200,000. But on the upside, the participants get to stay and party hard on a gorgeous island. Since you are keen on learning where all the fun and action take place, allow us to be your guide!
