Where Too Hot To Handle cast are now from music success to heartbreaking split

Too Hot To Handle exploded onto our screens last year just as the world was forced into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Netflix original dating show put a group of sexy singletons to the test inside a luxury Mexican villa to see if they could create meaningful relationships without becoming physical.

If the horny contestants could resist temptations, they were rewarded, but if they gave in to temptation, money was deducted from their $100,000 communal prize.

Since the show came out, fans have been left wondering what cast members have been doing since filming wrapped up.

The streaming service created a remote reunion episode for the show's host Desiree Burch to ask the stars some burning questions from viewers.

Here's what the cast of Too Hot to Handle series one have been up too since leaving the villa.

Harry Jowsey

Aussie hunk Harry has stayed in the news ever since he appeared on Too Hot To Handle.

With his short-lived whirlwind romance with co-star Francesca Farago and a controversial split embroiled in a legal drama, the 23-year-old influencer has managed to make headlines.

Last year, Harry shocked his fans when he stepped out with Kim Kardashian's former best friend Larsa Pippen for a meal.

While most speculated they were dating, Harry kept quiet and let the whole thing slide.

He's set to return to television screens after signing up to appear on new MTV mini-series Match Me If You Can.

The plot of the show sees eight-well know stars from other reality shows under one roof to figure if they can catch feelings for each other and if they are ready for each other.

When he's not filming dating shows, Harry is entertaining his followers on X-rated subscription site OnlyFans with racy content.

Francesca Farago

Canadian beauty Francesca, 27, started dating Harry after meeting on the Netflix dating show.

They got matching tattoos together and the Australian lad proposed with a fake ring.

However, Francesca announced that Harry had dumped her in a YouTube video posted in June last year.

Since her split from Harry, she's released a collection with InTheStyle, launched her own clothing label Farago The Label and more recently appeared on The Only Way Is Essex after she started dating Demi Sims.

The two had a whirlwind romance, holidaying in Mexico during the pandemic and Francesca actually moved from Canada to London to be with Demi. However the two then broke up earlier this year.

Confirming the break-up, Fran told her 4.9million Instagram followers: "I really didn’t want to have to address this today, but I am already getting attacked on social media so I might as well bite the bullet since I have no choice.

"Demi and I are no longer together. We decided to go our separate ways this morning. Nothing bad happened. We were both loyal to one another and still love each other."

Chloe Veitch

Essex beauty Chloe has attracted over 1million Instagram followers since appearing on Too Hot To Handle.

She's still remains close friends with fellow contestants Nicole and Lydia and has found a friendship with Georgie Shore star Chloe Ferry.

She’s got a Fashion Nova partnership and even released a collection on her own called Love Yourself Queen.

Chloe returned to Netflix last month on the streaming service's other reality series, The Circle USA.

The winner takes home $100,000 and the title of top influencer — a far cry from the $10.50 Veitch took home on Too Hot to Handle.

Speaking to Women's Health recently, she said: "Being on Too Hot To Handle and the love and the warmth that I had from fans all over the world has given me the confidence to go on TV again."

David Birtwistle

Fitness coach David was put through his paces by both Chloe and Lydia during his time on the show.

David and Lydia were seen getting very cozy on the dating show and by the last episode, it seemed like they might actually be interested in starting a relationship.

However, that romance doesn’t appear to have translated into the real world.

As it turned out, the couple never really got together and left the show as friends.

David has since founded a performance coaching programme called Endeavour Life, become a Nike Training ambassador and released his own at home fat loss guide.

He has also joined Cameo – offering personalised videos for £20.75 – and putting him alongside many other reality stars on the site.

Lydia Clyma

The biggest revelation since the the first series of Too Hot To Handle was Lydia is actually a mother.

She said at the start that she didn't want to talk about her son on the Netflix dating show.

Lydia, 23, has since admitted that she was "scared that strangers would judge [her], and question [her] abilities".

Since appearing on the series, the reality star has done a load of sponsored posts, as well as a sky diving course.

Sharron Townsend

Personal trainer Sharron spent his time on the show romancing Rhonda Paul, with the pair’s naughty antics costing the group $16,000.

The lovers left the show in a relationship but they are no longer together.

Speaking to The Sun about the split, Sharron said: "Rhonda has been a blessing to have in my life, she's been the strength to my weakness, the music to my soul and the yin to my yang.

"Unfortunately distance has been an issue, and although she's miles away our connection will always be."

New Jersey-based Sharron is now predominantly a model and actor according to his website.

He appeared in an Ari Lennox and J Cole music video and had a small role in Creed II.

Sharron has also got an OnlyFans account where he shares content which is deemed too racy for Instagram.

Rhonda Paul

Rhonda and Sharron were one of the most loved and admired couples on the show whose relationship progressed massively during the filming of the series.

The single mum introduced her son to Sharron on Facetime and even though they both admitted that their past had been difficult, they decided to give love a new chance.

The pair didn't make any public appearances after the show ended and it is reported that Rhonda is dating someone new now.

She told The Sun last year: "Sharron and I are not together, but fortunately I have been able to rekindle a relationship with a special someone."

Nicole O'Brien

Irish beauty Nicole made her name on the Netflix dating show but her focus is now purely on her music career.

Her debut single Irish Eyes, hit No1 in the Irish iTunes charts and she's reportedly working with producers who have worked with Jessie J and JLS.

She planned to use a TV show to help her launch a music career, and she even wrote that as a teen on a list of her life goals.

Nicole dated fellow contestant Bryce but the pair split due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Opening up about her future, the singleton told The Sun: "This year I do not want a relationship.

“I don’t want a man blinding my vision. I’m full steam ahead."

Bryce Hirschberg

American film director Bryce, 30, joined the cast of Too Hot To Handle as a new arrival.

He found romance with co-star Nicole but the pair parted ways in June 2020.

"After the many failed attempts to reunite due to quarantine and border restrictions, we decided that moving on and remaining friends would be our best option for the time being," Bryce told PEOPLE.

"Nicole is so lovely and if under less unusual circumstances I’m sure that we could’ve had an amazing relationship! I wish her the best because she deserves it."

Last year, Tiger King star Dillon Passage surprised Bryce during his wild bot party celebrating his 30th birthday.

In another clip, the duo danced near the front of the boat as Bryce put his arm around his new friend.

Bryce is reportedly now recording music independently under the artist name Bryc.
