Netflix’s new dating show, ‘Too Hot to Handle’, premieres this Friday. It is rumoured to follow in Love Island’s footsteps, making it the perfect show to binge during lock-down.
It premieres on Netflix tomorrow and has an interesting niche. It’s held on a paradise-like island with hot singletons like many other dating shows. However, the contestants will lose money every time they take part in physical affection. Therefore, contestants should be more motivated to find relationships on a more emotional level. Will this be the case? Or will contestants rebel against the rules?
Netflix’s trailer reveals that some of the singles are willing to break the rules at whatever cost. After an Alexa-like robot tells them they have to put their emotions over their physical wants, the candidates seem disgusted at the twist. Netflix is trying to overcome the pointlessness of a normal dating show as the singles are made to battle with their physical desires.
Furthermore, Netflix’s trailer promises drama and tension. It is similar to dating shows such as Love Island, which may make it an easy-watching and entertaining show to watch during quarantine.
There’s a staggering £100,000 available for individuals who are able to abstain from physical affection. However, the winner could end up with absolutely no cash if they are unable to keep their hands to themselves.
The cast features members such as David who used to be a semi-pro rugby player, Francesca who is an influencer and Hayley who is a business student. Will these singles get on or clash in their Big-Brother-like holiday retreat?
