'Too Hot To Handle': Fans sympathize with contestants, say they too are in no-bone zone due to lockdown
Fans, who are binge-watching the show, say they can completely relate to the contestants' situation
Netflix recently dropped Season 1 of its new reality tv dating series, 'Too Hot To Handle' and fans who are binge-watching it say they can completely relate to the show given the current situation of being in lockdown. While the show has a big catch, and that is the contestants have to abstain from having sex during their stay there, fans claim they relate to it as they are surviving through the same owing to the lockdown. Fans on social media affirm they have also given up sex and aren't able to have it because they are stuck indoors during the coronavirus pandemic.
'Too Hot To Handle' revolves around 10 singletons who arrived on a tropical island in Mexico for what they assumed would be the most erotic and exotic summer vacation of their lives. Little did these horny commitment-phobic contestants know that this vacation of theirs would come with a naughty twist.
Equipped with a virtual guide named Lana, the contestants are put in a no bone zone because of their history with meaningless flings and one night stands. They had to abstain from having sex over the course of four weeks. They were vying for the prize amount of $100,000. But the catch that came with it was that if any contestant was caught having any kind of sex, heavy petting, kissing or even self-satisfying, money would be deducted from their prize money.
While the contestants found it hard to abstain from having sex, and while a few gave in to those temptations of making out, they did manage to evolve from their past selves during their stay. Fans who watched the series are now comparing it to the current situation where most of the world is in lockdown and affirming horny singles who are watching this are going through the same.
Taking to Twitter, a fan wrote, "Everybody needs to watch #toohottohandle on @netflix immediately. a bunch of hot people trying to find love in a house and win $100k but the catch is they can’t have any sexual relations or even masturbate or else they lose prize money. this is a whole quarantine mood." Adding to that another said, "For those of us #Quarantine alone for these 2 months we could def. do this shit. #TooHotToHandle."
"Netflix releasing a show about single people unable to have sex in an era where single people are unable to have sex," a fan shared. While another added, "Me too, I’ve been forced into this #TooHotToHandle game but the quarantine edition."
"Whoever created #TooHotToHandle is genius... its how I feel this whole quarantine," a fan wrote.
