Welcome back to the reality TV sensation of lockdown: horny people go to a villa and are told the one thing they’re not allowed to do is...be horny. Well, they can be horny, but if they do anything about it, they will lose money from a collective $100,000 prize fund.
That’s right; Too Hot to Handle season 2 is here, and the first four episodes (out of 10) are available to stream on Netflix. The new cast of contestants on the show are just as sexual—if not more—than the last group, and they think they are going on a show called Parties in Paradise. Seriously, who thinks someone actually calls a show something as uncreative as Parties in Paradise?
There is one central factor that sets this cast apart from the last: They have actually seen the show before. As soon as they saw Lana, the robot who lays down the law and catches contestants when they break it, these folks knew what was going on. “Yo, we’re on Too Hot to Handle?" Chase, a professional football player who clearly stays on top of his Netflix shows, asks when he sees the cock-blocking robot.
These people are familiar with the show, which means they are familiar with the rules. Lana calls herself their “personal digital assistant,” but it’s clear that all of these contestants regard her as public enemy No. 1. “I’ll give you $100,000 to go away,” Chase says. “I’m being cock-blocked by a cone.”
Kissing, heavy petting, sex, and self-gratification will all cost you on this show. The cast we meet in the first episode, however, has all the makings of big spenders. Let’s get to know them, shall we?
Cam Holmes, 24
Cam identifies himself as a “sexy nerd.” He is definitely the kind of person who goes after what he wants. In this case, that means Emily, a model from London with a penchant for breaking the rules.
Oh, and yeah, he does a Gollum impression.
Sexy, no? No.
Emily Miller, 27
Emily, the initial object of Cam’s affections, is also one of the contestants who catches the eyes of the rest of the group from the start. Emily and Cam are two suspects to watch when it comes to breaking the rules.
Remember, folks: Lana sees all.
Marvin Anthony, 26
Every reality show seems to have a jack of all trades who is also the object of everyone’s horniness. Marvin is that person. He is a model, influencer, basketball player, and has a degree in finance to boot.
Per Cosmopolitan, it seems Marvin went private on Instagram for a while, but if you want to take a second look at his feed—and all the steamy pics it has to offer—they are available once more.
Melinda Melrose, 28
Melinda, a model from New York City, knew what (and who) she wanted as soon as she saw Marvin. Melinda keeps things real—especially when she makes mistakes. Melinda and Marvin might just be the couple to watch that leaves the show as disgustingly in love as Harry and Francesca from season 1.
Let’s just hope they don’t break the rules quite as blatantly as those two.
Kayla Carter, 26
Kayla is a Filipina-American bartender and model from Florida. Her Instagram grid is not as full as the rest of the crew, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t someone to watch as a real heartbreaker (or rule breaker!) this season.
She also seems to be a favorite of past cast members, too:
Larissa Trownson, 28
Larissa is a lawyer from Auckland, New Zealand who is maybe the happiest when Lana announces that the collective prize money won’t necessarily be divided equally among the contestants. Rule followers seem to be rewarded even more this time around, and Larissa is definitely in that camp. But don’t forget that the point of the show is about forming a meaningful connection with someone else, and Larissa is not in one of the instant couples that have formed.
Thankfully, Lana always has something (or someone) new up her...cone. Larissa could go home with love!
Nathan Webb, 27
Nathan is a stripper from the U.K. who lives in Texas. He describes his job by asking, “Have you seen Magic Mike?”
A born-again Southerner, for sure. 🤠
Peter Vigilante, 21
Pete is from Staten Island, and while it’s never good to generalize, he does fit into the whole “gym rat” stereotype.
He's also a major flirt. No one is safe from his charms!
Carly Lawrence, 24
Carly is a model from Canada, and she partners up pretty quickly with Chase. They are definitely possibly reading this together while cuddled up on the couch as a couple.
Chase Demoor, 24
Chase, the contestant who was not afraid to tell Lana exactly how he felt, is a football player from Arizona. Currently, he plays defensive end for the Linemen in the Spring League. He played for Central Washington University before his current career.
And, of course, he is super sweet on Carly.
There you have it: the episode one crew. A lot of personalities, a lot of high libidos, and a dash of drama.
Let’s do this.
