Netflix is truly bringing the heat when it comes to reality dating shows. Before Too Hot to Handle, there was Love Is Blind, a show where people got engaged before ever seeing one another in person. We all thought that was as bonkers as it could get on the streaming service, but boy were we naive. On April 16, Netflix dropped Too Hot to Handle and it completely blew our minds.
In case you haven’t checked Twitter in a few days, here’s what you need to know: THTH is a dating show surrounding 10 hot singles who just want sex, sex, and more sex—except now they can’t have any if they want to win a large sum of money. It’s ultra campy, ridiculously fun, and Twitter, naturally, has a lot of opinions.
Here’s a (mostly) spoiler-free look at how viewers at home really feel about its over-the-top premise and cast, who’s Instagram accounts are right this way…
The Show Overall
As Twitter astutely notes, this show is about sexed-up single people now having to abstain from all types of sex in the hopes of winning $100,000. To some, it is cheesy and lighthearted.
To others, it feels particularly relevant in the age of social distancing.
Maybe too relevant.
