The Plot

The creators aim at these youngsters creating a genuine connection with each other rather than following the fling culture. A major twist in series is that if any contestant is caught engaging in any physical activity, including kissing another contestant, the prize money decreases, which is $100,000. The show aims at testing the contestants' ability to refrain themselves from crossing any lines and thus only maintain an old school relationship.

The Good

The show is quite relevant and gives out a meaningful message in today’s hook up culture. The show among fans is being deemed as one of the best 21st-century reality shows. The show makers keep setting rules among contestants that make it harder for them to resist each other. However, the catch makes them do things that often come off as amusing and entertaining. The show is bold however it does manage to maintain itself from going completely off the hook.

The Bad

The contestants in the show often come off as pretentious and self-centred. The makers have made it clear that Too Hot to Handle is about really good looking people. The contestants are aware of that and are incredibly self-centred. Most of the contestants speak things that would otherwise be major letdowns in any other show format. The show is quite anti-climatic as in nature and premise set by the makers. However, being a new format it can be confusing for several viewers who are used to watching things with a definite end.

Take Away

Too Hot to Handle aims primarily at bringing back old school romance and it is quite exciting to watch modern-day individuals wrap their heads around it. The show is fun and quite interactive and can get audiences hooked on to the narrative. However, the show does take some time getting used to for those who have watched reality television in a different format.
