‘Too Hot to Handle’ Cast: Meet the 14 Contestants


Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle is about to be your new obsession. It takes 10 singles (and later adds in more), puts them in a gorgeous retreat for four weeks and encourages them to make deep connections and find love — all while not being able to have any sort of physical affection. Every time they kiss (or more), money gets deducted from the prize pool.

Here are the 14 contestants competing for love and money on the first season of Too Hot to Handle
