New Netflix Show “Too Hot To Handle” Has Contestants That Can’t Kiss, Hook Up Or Have Self-Gratification To Win Cash Prize

Do you miss Love is Blind? I definitely had a hangover from watching so many episodes in a row. But quarantine left me no other option but to get sucked in. With that said, I was pretty invested and felt like it was an enjoyable show. I even find myself following up on how all the couples are doing, as they are giving us plenty of content lately. It’s even been renewed for a second and third season.

Aside from Love is Blind, I have been a pretty big Netflix fan in general. Tiger King rocked my world, y’all. I am still reeling from it. But Netflix is going back to the dating show formula and is working on a new show that’s got quite the interesting premise.

According to Cosmopolitan, Netflix is set to come out with a new dating series with a twist, aptly named Too Hot To Handle. What does that even mean? Well, the premise of the show is that contestants can’t have any casual hooking up. At all.

The official synopsis of the show clarifies, “10 young, hot singles from around the world come together in a seaside paradise for what they think will be the most exotic and erotic summer of their lives— but there’s a twist. These commitment-phobes who love a casual hook-up, will have to give up all hanky panky for the entire retreat if they want to win the $100,000 grand prize.”

It goes on, “No kissing, no heavy petting, and no self-gratification of any kind. With every slip, the prize money goes down. In this luxury no-bone zone, will the serial singletons be able to form deeper emotional connections? Or will the temptation simply be too hot to handle?” But the whole idea of abstaining isn’t just in theory. The more contestants break the rules, the more prize money they lose. So they have quite the incentive to keep their hands to themselves.

Yahoo is also reporting on the new show, calling it a cross between Love is Blind and the popular British series Love Island. There isn’t a trailer or info on the cast just yet. However, Too Hot To Handle with premiere on April 17th.
