In this strange time of a) self-isolation and b) insane TV (thank you, Tiger King), I present the answer to the question you've been wondering lately: So what do I watch next? Enter Netflix's Too Hot to Handle. ICYMI, ten hot single commitment-phobes join each other at a beach resort, expecting hookups and parties. Instead, they get a weird little robot "Lana" monitoring their sexual activity—no kissing, no petting, no...self-pleasure, and definitely no sex, or they lose out on the potential to win $100,000. When something physical, they lose money. Seriously, watch the trailer, if you haven't. Did I know I needed this show? No I did not. Am I fully invested? You bet I am. While Clare Crawley waits to film her Bachelorette season, I'll be watching several self-described "10s" try not to rub up against each other. Until the show officially drops on April 17, here's the full cast list, as well as their Instagrams, so you can familiarize yourself with the people you'll be cheering for(?) as the sex-less shenanigans get underway.

Note: many of the contestants changed their Instagram names to "Too Hot to Handle" to promote the show. It's...very thematic.
