All Critics (27) | Top Critics (8)

Other than functioning as eye candy, however, the show tends to be a confusing, boring mess.

Apr 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Despite an irresistibly juicy premise, Too Hot to Handle doesn't know what kind of show it wants to be, and it suffers for lack of direction.

Too Hot to Handle is trashy and ridiculous, but by the end of its season, its explorations of what makes for real intimacy become strangely touching (no pun intended).

Too Hot To Handle hits like a cold shower. It has all the essential foreplay to titillate but leaves the viewer unsatisfied. Any addicting qualities this show has wear off like a honeymoon phase...

It's shallow voyeurism - no more, no less.

Apr 21, 2020 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

The series is still a trashy, superficial delight.

Apr 21, 2020 | Full Review…

Pre-quarantine, I doubt this any of would have rankled me, but right now I can't even enjoy the schadenfreude; it all just feels a little too on the nose.

Apr 20, 2020 | Full Review…

It is compulsively watchable-if mindless, ridiculous reality is your poison of choice.

Forget Love Island. Throw Love Is Blind in the trash. Netflix's new show Too Hot To Handle now wears the dating-show crown.

Apr 20, 2020 | Full Review…

For those viewers who aren't already primed to suspend their disbelief in the face of manufactured drama, Too Hot to Handle gives them no reason to care.

Apr 20, 2020 | Full Review…

Those who relish the escapism of sleazy junk like this may appreciate it for its too-hot-for-network-TV moments, and possibly for its scintillating iguana content.

Apr 20, 2020 | Full Review…

The genius of Too Hot to Handle is the communal nature of the prize pool.
