1. What Is ‘too Hot To Handle’?

It’s Netflix’s latest dating show that is best described as a combination between Love Is Blind and Love Island. The series follows ten single contestants who travel to a tropical paradise in the hope of winning the grand prize: $100,000. But there’s a catch…

In order to win, the contestants must keep their hands to themselves. This means no kissing, no hugging and no “heavy petting” of any kind, according to the official website.

2. How Can I Watch ‘too Hot To Handle’?

The show will premiere on Netflix on Friday, April 17. Too Hot to Handle will be exclusively available on the streaming service, so don’t even think about canceling your subscription.

3. Is There A Trailer?

Oh, yes. The trailer introduces viewers to the cast of serial daters, who are tasked with keeping their hands to themselves for the chance to win money. “I don’t look at him and just see sex,” someone says in the clip. “Maybe something more can come from this.”

Another woman adds, “All we’ve gotta do is just keep our pants on.” Based on the trailer, it’s easier said than done.

4. Who Monitors The Pda?

According to the trailer, the contestants are watched by a team of producers, who explain the rules through a robotic-like voice. Think if Amazon’s Alexa were to suddenly take a course in parenting.
