Netflix’s new reality dating show ‘Too Hot to Handle’ premiers April 17, 2020, and the premise of the show is quite simple – put a group of hot single people in a villa for a month and give them the opportunity to find love and win $100,000. The twist, though, is that during their time on the island, they have to abstain from any and all kinds of sexual activity. They can’t even kiss! Whenever a cast member will do anything that they aren’t allowed to do, the prize money will drop. It’s evil, and completely genius.
Now, this show has a format similar to that of ‘Love Island,‘ but the difference is that the contestants are coming from all over the globe. You might be wondering who the contestants that have agreed to do this Netflix show are. Well, here’s the list of Too Hot To Handle cast members.
1. Chloe Veitch
Chloe Veitch is a 21-year-old model from Essex, U.K. When she announced that she was going to be on ‘Too Hot to Handle’ on her Instagram profile, she wrote: “The secret is out!

It’s rare I do this but more recently I’ve been looking back and looking forward because the right now isn’t too exciting . Being at home so much with less to do than normal, it’s given me time to reflect on what I love about life . 1) Freedom – to travel, to talk, to think, to create, to do. It is a great privilege to do all of them and something that brings me great joy. 2) Flexibility – monotony kills my happiness. I want the variety and the new. New experiences shape our beliefs and allow us to grow as people. Being stuck in the same environment provides no new stimulus to evolve. 3) Family – Riding solo is fun but lacks depth. The more I invest in people, show them my vulnerabilities, flaws and talk openly with them, the deeper our relationships go. . How many of the people you used to hang out with are actually checking in with you at the moment? . By taking this time of a slightly less fast paced life, I’m learning a lot about myself, that I can hopefully take into the future. . What have you learned about yourself recently? . #actionsreflectpriorities

🇮🇹 When I heard the phrase "Getting lost in Venice" I thought of some beautiful romantic love story where the gondola's and scenic canals would make me forget my woes… and that was the case, temporarily… but my biggest woes became me trying to find my way back from one end of the island to the other before my last train home 🥴 I literally was, lost in Venice!
