The Best Twitter Reactions to Netflix's 'Too Hot to Handle'

Unsurprisingly, the internet cannot handle Netflix's latest dating reality show.

If there's one thing this global pandemic has proven, it's that Netflix has one hell of a sense of humor. At a time when the majority of us are frantically Googling "how to dye your own roots (opens in new tab) " or sporting unibrows and regrettable buzzcuts, the streaming service dropped Too Hot to Handle, a show about people who are so hot they literally can't handle it (opens in new tab).

And neither can the Internet. Just hours after the show debuted on Friday, Twitter was awash with opinions about the reality dating show that flips the script: where the audience roots for beautiful people not to touch and the fantasy suite is a place for emotional, not sexual, connection. Are you listening Bachelor producers? (opens in new tab) (That's not to say the show doesn't perpetuate reality show tropes, most alarmingly, that only thin and heterosexual people are "hot"...)

But despite the show's outrageous premise—a reality dating show with no sex is like, well, a reality show with no hot people—the internet clearly found solace in the sex-less escapades of the cast, hope in the contestants' personal growth, and comfort in the show's cheeky AI judge, Lana. Plus, we all needed something to tweet about now that the Love Is Blind (opens in new tab) and Tiger King memes (opens in new tab) have died down.

So read on for the Internet's best reactions to Too Hot to Handle. And rest assured that Harry was once just as horny as you are now, while social distancing.
