The golden shores of paradise are back in Too Hot to Handle season 3 where a fresh set of gorgeous singles meet. All seems perfect for the singletons on the idyllic island, but there’s just one thing that’s standing in their way — they must give up sex to win a $200,000 grand prize.

The first season was a hit during lockdown with contestants Francesca Farago, Harry Jowsey, Lydia Clyma, Kelz Dyke, Rhonda Paul, Nicole O’Brien, Chloe Veitch, Bryce Hirschberg, David Birtwistle, and Sharron Townsend winning the series and splitting the remaining prize money of $75,000.

They have also released other versions of the series, including Too Hot to Handle Brazil and Too Hot to Handle Latino.

Here’s everything we know about Too Hot to Handle season 3…

What is ‘Too Hot to Handle’ season 3 about? 

Ten stunning young singles meet each other in a tropical villa, but there won’t be hook-ups for them any time soon as they are forbidden from any sexual contact if they want to win the grand prize.

Watching their every move is virtual assistant Lana, who reduces the amount of prize money every time a rule is broken. Will the new contestants be able to handle it? Or will they give in and break the rules?
