Nothing — not even tens of thousands of dollars — was going to keep these couples from getting it on.
Netflix’s latest wild reality show, “Too Hot To Handle,” forced serial one-night stands to build emotional connections and keep sex out of building relationships.
Singles were sent to an island and promised a pot of $100,000. But for every kiss or sexual act, the amount of money they could win decreased. After one month in Mexico of holding back their urges, 10 contestants split a total of $75,000. But some walked away with more than cash in their pockets. Four singles found love: Sharron Townsend with Rhonda Paul, and Harry Jowsey with Francesca Farago.
Since filming, they’ve kept quiet about their relationship status. But now they’re letting all their secrets out. Here, Townsend and Farago update The Post on their love life.
Sharron and Rhonda
While the two are still in touch, Rhonda and Sharron are not in a relationship, he reveals.
“After the show, Rhonda and I stayed in contact for a few months, and then for a bit, I got caught up with work,” he tells The Post. “We kind of lost contact for a bit.”
“A few months ago, we got back talking again. We were communicating frequently,” he says. “We were making plans to come visit each other, but then the coronavirus happened.”
On the show, Rhonda, who lives in Atlanta, Georgia, introduced New Jersey-based Sharron to her son over a video call. “Once this is done, we hope to visit and continue to build our relationship,” he says.
“She invested so much in me, I owe her that much in return, to stay down and work through any issues,” the wrestling coach and personal trainer says. “This is a chance for me to start manning up and becoming more mature.”
Francesca and Harry
Francesca and Harry spent more money than any other pair on the show — together they burned through $32,000 worth of hookups.
After filming ended, Harry and Francesca got to spend some time in Mexico alone, without any cameras.
“We left, he went back to Australia, and I went back to Vancouver. Two weeks later, he came to visit me,” she says. “We flew to Ontario, and he met my grandmother, my family and all my friends.”
Quickly after, Francesca flew down under to see him in Australia. After that, “we broke off for a bit and did our own thing,” she says.
In September, Harry moved to LA. “We reconnected, and ever since, it’s been amazing,” she reveals.
Because of the coronavirus, they’re currently unable to see each other. “That’s been really difficult, but it’s basically like the [show] again. We can’t get physical, so we’re focusing on us,” says the social-media personality. “We’re excited for this to be over, so we can move in together and start normal life.”
