The second season of Too Hot To Handle is being filmed in a brand new location. Netflix revealed the news in a clip on Wednesday, 19th May as they announced the show's return date.

The new villa where Too Hot to Handle season two is filmed was revealed on Monday, 14th June, and is located in Turks & Caicos.

Season one was filmed in a private estate in Mexico. The commitment-phobes spent four weeks at secluded haven Casa Tau in the Punta Mita region of the South American country, surrounded by over nine miles of Pacific Ocean beaches.

What happened last season?

Netflix’s first season saw the Too Hot to Handle cast search for love at a sunny seaside villa in a bid to win the $100,000 jackpot under one condition – no sexual activity. 

Throughout the eight-part season, we saw the contestants struggle with the task, with some succeeding but a few failing miserably. With deductions being made to the prize pot every time the rules are broken, the total amount sunk down to $50,000 at one point (mainly thanks to Harry and Francesca), although the pair were given the opportunity to earn the money back.

As a result, the remaining members of the group split the $75,000 jackpot between them – going home with $7,500 each (£6,080).

Only two strong couples left the retreat as an item – Francesca and Harry, and Rhonda and Sharron – which is unsurprising considering that both couples cost their fellow contestants the most money. 

The series also saw the late arrival of four new singles – Bryce Hirschberg, Lydia Clyma, Madison Wyborny and Kori Sampson, although the latter two were eliminated from the retreat along with troublemaker Haley Cureton. Matthew ‘Jesus’ Smith voluntarily walked away from the competition in episode six after struggling to find love but feeling satisfied with his progress on the show.
