The official description for the series reads: "Ten super hot and horny singletons enter a lavish villa in the Caribbean hoping to fall in love harder, faster and more intensely than ever in a high stakes dating show called Wild Love hosted by TV legend Mario Lopez.
"Little do they know that TOO HOT TO HANDLE is back and Lana is as watchful as ever. Will this wild cast be able to stick to the rules and abstain from sexual contact (or self-gratification) in order to form meaningful connections, and keep that prize money as high as their sex drives? Or will temptations prove too strong to resist?"

A few days out from its release, Netflix unveiled the full Too Hot To Handle season 4 trailer. In it, we see the new cast's reaction as they learn what they've really signed up for. The trailer teases new challenges, new arrivals, and real feelings, with contestants soon opening up about their feelings in the Too Hot To Handle house. Check it out below:
The teaser for Too Hot To Handle season 4 came at the start of November. It sees TV star Mario Lopez introducing the fake series Wild Love, with returning narrator Desiree Burch explaining that the team had to create "the biggest fake show yet" in order to attract a new set of clueless contestants.

Who won Too Hot To Handle Season 3?
British duo Beaux Raymond and Harry Johnson walked away as the winning couple at the end of the previous series.
It was the first time in the Netflix dating show's history that the grand prize wen to a couple, and the two of them split the total prize money ($90,000) between them, meaning they both left Too Hot To Handle $45,000 (£34,000) richer!
Are Beaux and Harry still together?
Sadly, the Too Hot To Handle power couple didn't last on the outside. Despite leaving as the winning couple in January 2022, the pair revealed at the Too Hot To Handle season 3 reunion that they had called it quits, with both claiming that they'd struggled with their long-distance relationship after returning home to the UK.
The pair were spotted together following their split up, though it is unclear whether they have fully rekindled their romance since.
