But, the one thing we all want to know is where everyone is now, and if any of the couples are still together.

From season one's Harry and Francesca, to season two's Emily and Cam and Melinda and Marvin, who left the show in relationships, here's everything you need to know.

Too Hot to Handle Season two Cast

Cam Holmes

We didn't have much hope for season two bad boy Cam, who broke loads of rules and couldn't keep his eyes on one girl. Despite being with Emily, his head appeared to turn when Christina walked in, and he later told Emily he didn't want to continue with their relationship. Tabitha then tried to get him in the shower with her, but to our surprise, he resisted temptation and soon asked Emily to be his girlfriend.

So are Emily and Cam still together?

They are!

Following the reunion show, Cam shared a loved up pic of the pair, with the caption: "It all started with a crab grab."

Emily Miller

Emily got her happy ever after with reformed bad boy Cam. Since the show, she's been posting loved up pictures of them. The pair now live together an during the reunion show, Cam revealed they'd hardly spent a moment apart since filming ended.

Who would have thought!

Marvin Anthony

Marvin walked away with the $55,000 cash prize and a girlfriend - Melinda Melrose.

The pair had a very tumultuous relationship in the villa and broke lots of rules, so did they manage to keep it together once the cameras stopped rolling?

Sadly, not. On the reunion show, Marvin revealed: "We're not together anymore, even though I do miss her a lot."

Melinda Melrose

Melinda left the show as Marvin's girlfriend, but they broke up after an argument.

Speaking on the reunion show, Melinda explained: "We were supposed to be in Mexico, that's correct. I booked the Airbnb, I had things planned, but of course Marvin and I did get into an argument, that is true. But he could have put his big boy pants on and still come."

Melinda says Marvin cancelled the flight on the day of their trip and when she tried to call him, he ignored her calls. She says she was left in the "dark" and a month later Marvin went to Tulum, Mexico with his boys leaving Mel "heartbroken".

They didn't talk for a while, but now they're on good terms with Melinda admitting: "I will always have love for Marvin. That's undeniable!"

Christina Carmela

Christina flirted with Cam when she arrived in the retreat, but he was just about able to resist the temptation. With Cam no longer interested, she turned her attention to English Rob, who she admitted wasn't her type, yet still broke rules with. Lana wasn't having any of it, so booted them both out.

But it looks like Lana might have got it wrong, because according to Christina's Instagram, these two are still very much a thing!

Referring to that "20 second" rule break, the model shared an image of them playing tennis with the caption: "20 seconds turned into 6 months with you. ❤️ @robertvantromp"

Congrats!

Robert Van Tromp

To our surprise, it looks like things are still going well with Christina and Rob. Following the reunion show, Rob shared a pic of them with the caption: "“No one actually thinks they’ll go on a TV show and end up meeting someone they’ll fall in love with” Dear Lana, guess we didn’t do you so bad after all… ???? @christinacarmelaofficial @toohotnetflix."

That ought to tell, Lana!

Carly Lawrence

Carly was originally in a couple with Chase, but things went bad between them and they went their separate ways. She was sad for a while and Chase didn't make it any better by inviting new girl Tabitha into his bed, but her knight in swimming trunks came when Joey arrived on the island.

The pair shared a kiss and lost some money, but it seems it was worth it. Since the show, Carly has visited Joey in Miami and during an interview with Cosmopolitan UK, she hinted that their relationship off screen had developed further.

"He's a really good kisser. More stuff that happened off the show was better though" she said.

Carly has also remained close pals with Melinda Melrose, and shared this cute picture of them together.

Joey Joy

Joey took a liking to Carly when he arrived at the retreat and the pair shared a few moments on camera. Outside the show, it seems things are still going good between them. During the Too Hot to Handle reunion show, Carly confirmed she'd visited him several times in Miami once the show ended.

Chase de Moore

After his relationship with Carly broke off, Chase got close to Tabitha. But things didn't really work out between them, with Tab kind of flirting with Cam.

The pair still talk, but it's safe to say they're not an item.

He has kept in contact with Carly, though and they even spent New Years together.

Nathan Webb

Things didn't work out between him and Larissa and he had more of a friendship with Elle. Outside of the show, Nathan has been keeping busy in the gym and he's maintained a friendship with Larissa.

Kayla Carter

She was one of the first contestants to leave the show, as Lana felt she wasn't getting much from the experience and hadn't bonded with anyone romantically.

It looks like the 26-year-old has returned to modelling since the show, sharing lots of pictures of her recent work on Instagram page.

Larissa Trownson

Larissa quit the show when things weren't going well with her and Nathan. It looks like the pair have managed to put things behind them and have a good friendship. They often comment on each other's photos and have some strong social media banter going. We love to see it!

Elle Monae

As a late arrival, the entrepreneur didn't get much air time. It looked like she might have something with Nathan, but the show ended before they could really get to know each other.

It's not clear whether they've continued their fling outside the show, but Nathan has been leaving comments on her photos.

Since the show, Elle has appeared as the cover girl for Playboy Magazine.

Tabitha Cliftt

The 27-year-old was a late arrival to the show. She tried to turn Cam's head, but it didn't work and she got quite close to Chase but it was more flirty than serious. Viewers will be happy to hear, the pair are still in contact and talk frequently, but Tabitha may have found more love with the other girls.

Speaking exclusively to RadioTimes.com, she said: "I came out with such strong, female relationships, which was surprising seeing as I came across as kind of the villain, so I didn’t think I would. But, me, Emily and Christina have such a strong friendship now. We’ve even got holidays planned.”

Peter Vigilante

Lana sent naughty Peter home first, after his three-way kiss with Carly and Melinda who were both in relationships.

It looks like Peter is still single, but he's kept in contact with the rest of the cast. He recently uploaded a video of him squatting with Melinda on his back.

Hmm...

Too Hot to Handle Season One Cast

Chloe Veitch

Chloe, 22, didn't really find a love match on the show. She made a connection with David and Bryce, and it looked like she might have a thing with Kori Sampson but they had a bit of a falling out on the show which pretty much put an end to things. These days, Chloe is quite the influencer with 1.8m followers to date. She also appeared on series two of The Circle USA, where she finished runner-up to Trevor aka Deleesa.

Francesca Farago

The 27-year-old Canadian turned out to be the rule breaker of the series, costing the group $32,000 in total (ouch). Francesca and her partner in crime – Harry Jowsey – left the competition as an item but there is no trace of their relationship on social media. The pair do follow each other on Instagram however.

Since the show, Francesca who is from Canada, seems to have set up home in the UK. She was previously dating The Only Way is Essex's Demi Sims, but it doesn't look like they're together any more.

Francesca works as a model and has lots of collaborations with fashion brands.

Harry Jowsey

Australian hunk Harry was sought after in the villa but eventually paired up with Francesca after a rollercoaster romance.

Since the show, Harry left Australia for LA and began cashing in on his catchphrases after setting up his "Naughty Possums" clothing brand. The star has also been dishing out relationship advice to his Instagram followers, branding himself the “Love Doctor” – maybe stick to selling merch Harry.

Since the show, Harry has launched a podcast and an OnlyFans account. He also does a lot of work with online clothing brand Boohooman.com

He's not with Francesca, but the pair seem to be in a good place.

On his 24th birthday in June, he shared a photo of the pair to his Instagram.

Sharron Townsend

Personal trainer Sharron spent his time on the show courting Rhonda Paul, with the pair’s naughty antics costing the group $16,000. The lovers left the shower in a relationship, but what has become of them since?

Unfortunately, the pair went their separate ways after the show as the pandemic made it difficult for them to see one another.

Although he’s no longer with Paul, Townsend seemed optimistic about them getting back together, admitting in a previous interview: “Hopefully there’s still a chance that we can still make something work. I got a lot of love for her.”

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 in February, and had a small role in Creed II. He has also launched the Today I Smiled project.

Rhonda Paul

27-year-old Rhonda Paul left her THTH experience with boyfriend Sharron, but the single mum has since returned to Atlanta, where she owns PureluXX, a jewellery shop.

Speaking of her split from Townsend, she said: "Unfortunately we are not [together] We are the best of friends; we still do talk, as far as helping each other out, talking to each other and things like that.”

Nicole O'Brien

Like many of the series one Too Hot to Handle cast, Nicole from Ireland, didn’t find a love connection on the show. She did leave $7,000 dollars richer, however, after the prize money was split 10 ways so it’s not all bad.

Since the show, Nicole has teamed up with some brands and she’s also kept in contact with Chloe, with the pair often sharing pics together on their Instagram accounts. She was charging £29 for personalised videos on Cameo.

Haley Cureton

Whenever we see Haley's name, we can't help laughing as we remember the moment she was eliminated from the show and didn't care because she hadn't formed many friendships let alone romances. She did make friends with Francesca before she left, though.

Following the show, the 23-year-old continued with her education at the University of North Florida.

She looks quite different to when she appeared on THTH. On her Instagram, she experiments with different coloured wigs. It seems she's also become quite the influencer as well since the show, partnering with lots of fashion and beauty brands.

Kelz Dyke

The accountant of the group failed to make a love connection on the show despite a small fling with Francesca. He continues to live in London, where he plays for the London Warriors – an American football team.

Back home in South London, Kelz says like has changed a lot, and "staying famous" has been much harder than he expected.

Speaking in an interview with Fox News, he said: "I keep saying becoming famous is easy but staying famous is a completely different thing, especially being famous for the right reasons as well. So I'm quite lucky because what I think is very important are the things you learn as you get older that you don't know when you're 21. If this show happened to me when I was 21, we’re having a totally different conversation".

David Birtwistle

British David was put through his paces by both Chloe and newcomer Lydia, but what has come of him since the show?

The fitness and nutrition coach has since founded a performance coaching programme called Endeavour Life, become a Nike Training ambassador and released his own ‘home fat loss guide’. He has also joined Cameo – offering personalised videos for £20.75 (a bit cheaper than Nicole).

Dating wise, it doesn't look like David has found that special someone yet.

Matthew Smith

Matthew Smith – aka Jesus – left the competition voluntarily during episode six, but has since relocated to Los Angeles from Colorado and become the COO of Dream Katchers Enterprise, a multimedia company.

In 2019, the former America’s Next Top Model contestant actually played Jesus in a short film – bless.

He's actually cut off his long hair since appearing on the show (with a little help from fellow THTH cast member Bryce) but he still looks great, if you ask us!

Bryce Hirschberg

Piano man Bryce entered the villa a few days after everyone else and cost the group $3,000 after kissing Chloe.

He is now based in Los Angeles and considers himself to be a director, producer, actor and singer/songwriter – quite the multi-hyphenate. According to his website, he is currently working on his debut album and is recording music independently under the artist name, Bryc. If his THTH performance is anything to go by, it’s bound to be a chart-topper.

Kori Sampson

UK-based Kori was another late arrival but made the most of his time on the show with Chloe. He is now a model and personal trainer, having released a lifestyle and body eBook.

Madison Wyborny

Madison joined the group after Haley’s departure, and since the competition, she’s been travelling all over the world. She now lives in LA and works as a model.

Lydia Clyma

British Lydia arrived with Kori and Madison and got close to David, although things didn't blossom on the outside.

In March, Lydia revealed she'd decided to donate her eggs as she explained her reasoning behind not revealing she had a son on the Netflix show.

"I think I’m just very protective of him. He’s my personal life. With reality you have the thing where everyone sees and then you want to be able to go home to your personal life which you can protect and enjoy in private," she told OK!

From the looks of her Instagram, Lydia has partnered with a few brands including Fashion Nova and Protein World.
