Netflix's New Dating Show Really Is "Too Hot To Handle"

It is absolutely ridiculous, kinda trashy TV and I loved every second of it.

Netflix's New Dating Show Really Is "Too Hot To Handle"

If you have been living under a rock, you might not have heard about Netflix's new dating show "Too Hot to Handle." The show's original setup feels familiar: ten hot singles are sent to live together in a fancy beach resort in Mexico while a camera crew catches all the action. Or so you thought. This show has a dramatic twist: The contestants are not allowed to kiss or perform any sexual act.

Yeah, you read that right. The premise of the show is to essentially rehabilitate a bunch of hypersexual singles from around the world who are having meaningless flings instead of entering committed relationships.

Here's how it works:

A robot named Lana sees and hears everything that is going on in the resort and will deduct money from the $100,000 prize fund for every rule break. The more serious offense, the bigger the fine. Over the course of the month, the contestants fight over each other, get tempted by new arrivals, go on dates, and if Lana sees a genuine emotional connection forming between two contestants, face the ultimate chastity test of an overnight stay in a private suite. The fines range from $3,000 for a kiss to a potential $16,000 bill for failing the chastity test. It's a serious challenge for these hot singles to keep their hands off one another and the tension often results in hysterical moments that will make you literally laugh out loud.

It's a dating show unlike any that's been seen on TV before. While viewers do not know the status of any of the show's couples, it appears that the rehab portion of the show resulted in genuine self-growth for many of the contestants. The workshops featured on the show were moving, and you can tell the experience had a profound effect on (almost) everyone involved. Spoiler alert: Lana's not afraid to kick out any contestants who disrespect the process.

"Too Hot to Handle" is extremely entertaining, and not to mention at just 8 episodes it's an easy challenge for any binge-watcher to tackle. With a cast this hot, you're not gonna wanna look away anyways.

Happy watching!

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

Rebecca Jarrett

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
