Too Hot To Handle: The new Netflix dating show you will soon be obsessed with

Too Hot To Handle: The new Netflix dating show you will soon be obsessed with

Get ready to become addicted to yet another Netflix dating show – here’s everything you need to know about it


We had Love Island.

Then we were blessed with Love Is Blind. 

And now we are being presented with Too Hot To Handle. 

Get ready for the newest dating show that will have you reaching for the red wine and an extra-large packet of salt and vinegar crips.

Landing on Netflix today, Too Hot To Handle features 10 contestants from all over the world who must couple-up to be in with a chance of winning €100,000.

The contestants will be living it up in a villa and share one bedroom just like Love Island but the difference is no physical contact (eg kissing or sex) is allowed. If the contestants do give into temptation, the prize money will decrease.

Instead of being notified by text message, contestants must listen to the commands of Lana – a replica of Alexa – who will be surprising the villa with unexpected twists as the series progresses.

Contestants

A total of 10 contestants from countries such as Australia, Canada and the UK will battle it out in the hopes of finding love and winning a serious wad of cash.

Among those 10 contestants is one of our own in the shape of Nicole O’Brien from Co Cork.

Sharing the news on her Instagram today, London-based Nicole said: “Wow, this moment feels so surreal. I’ve been wanting to share this secret for so long and I’m so excited to say I’ll be on your screens on the 17th of April.

“Be prepared to laugh and cry because this series is going to give you all the feels! It’s so honest and real and I’m sharing a side to me not many people know about so this is pretty scary! I’m excited to start this journey and share it with best friends from all over the world.”

We cannot wait for this.
