A new reality dating show is about to hit Netflix and heat up your life in self-isolation. It’s called Too Hot to Handle, and the premise is simple and hilarious: Send a bunch of exceedingly hot cast members to a beach resort. Then inform them they’ll lose prize money if they hook up with each other.
Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix: “Ten young, hot singles from around the world come together in a tropical 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. 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?”
Who, pray tell, would subject themselves to this torture? Here’s what to know about the cast of Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle, including where to find them on Instagram. The show drops April 17th.
Chloe is a model from Essex who once took home a top prize in a major model search competition.
Here’s what Chloe wrote on Instagram when she announced she’d be on the show: “The secret is out! I have been filming with Netflix, catch me on the new dating show on the 17th of April⚡️⚡️ I am so nervous and exited to be able to share something that I went through with you all, It was an emotional rollercoaster.. you will see my highs and lows.

According to his Instagram bio, Harry is an Australian living in L.A. who was “made in a test tube.” Interesting! In case you need some more sweatshirts to wear in self-isolation, consider buying a garment that says “boyfriend dick” or “butter chicken.” IDK, he’s modeling them on a website called naughtypossums.com. I don’t make the rules.
Francesca is a model who splits her time between Vancouver, Canada, and L.A., according to her Instagram bio. She seems to do a lot of bikini and underwear modeling, and she follows a plant-based diet. She also apparently owns a very tiny dog.
This self-described “creative mind” has a lot going on in his Instagram bio. He’s the COO of Dream Katchers Enterprise, a branding agency that gives off distinct Parks and Rec “Entertainment 720” vibes. He’s also president of a brand called M8W, author of a children’s book called Windy, and had small roles on New Girl and The Young and the Restless, among a few other things.
Here’s how Matthew described Too Hot to Handle on Instagram: “Imagine if everyone on Tiger King had to be celibate for an extended period of time…. Well this isn’t far from that LOL! Get excited, I promise, y’all will be entertained.”
Based on her Instagram account, Rhonda appears to be a model. She went ziplining last summer, which—if you watch The Bachelor—is obviously proof that she’s ready to take a leap of faith in the name of love. Or something.
“IM ON NETFLIX. Wow, this moment feels so surreal,” she wrote in an Instagram post announcing her role on Too Hot to Handle. “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.”
Wow, I didn’t realize it until I looked him up, but “Kelz” is the exact name I’d pick for a bro-y contestants on a reality show about hot people! It’s unclear what Kelz’s last name is, but he describes himself as a 6’6″ American football player based in London. Good for Kelz!
Wow. Where to begin with Bryce? How about the fact that he apparently lives with his brother on a boat, and has an Instagram account dedicated to documenting their parties? He’s also a “director/writer/producer/actor,” according to his website, and he made a film called Counterfeiters.
“The moment I’ve been waiting to share for over a year!!!” he wrote in an Instagram post about the show’s premiere. “Too Hot to Handle is gonna be one heck of a ride!!!
