Did any real couples come out of Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle? The reality TV show promised to challenge hookup kings and queens to try and form deeper emotional connections by taking sex off the table — and some seriously cute romances blossomed. But which stars are still together more than a year after filming ended? As it turns out, not everyone’s love was built to last.
While talking exclusively with In Touch in April, Sharron Townsend and Francesca Farago revealed they were both in contact with their onscreen love interests. Though quarantine due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak was keeping all of the couples apart, the Canadian cutie revealed she and her man were talking about marriage and planning to move in together. After taking a break, Sharron and Rhonda Paul weren’t quite there, but they were still happy to be feeling things out.
“Things have been great,” Sharron told In Touch. He even hinted that she might be “the one,” comparing their time on the show to his real-life mentor’s relationship. Both men weren’t sure how they felt — but seeing their partners’ willingness to be patient with them and stick around through the tough times spoke volumes. “No matter what I put [Rhonda] through [on the show], no matter what I told her or how I expressed myself, she was still there,” the New Jersey native said.
“She’s been there [for me] through everything.” They were even thriving amid social distancing. “These are the conditions that we kind of met each other in,” he explained. “All we could do [at the retreat] was communicate. … Now, it’s kind of like we’re back to how we started.” Getting to know each other on a purely emotional level rather than a physical one helped the Too Hot to Handle hunk realize just how special his relationship with Rhonda was.
Unfortunately, distance seems to have taken a toll on both of the show’s main relationships. Quarantine forced Sharron to cancel a visit he had planned to go see the Georgia beauty in Atlanta. Though they hoped to reschedule, it seems those plans are now off indefinitely. Francesca was ready to pack her bags and move to Los Angeles to live with Harry Jowsey as soon as it was safe to do so, but she didn’t get the chance either. The Australian star called it quits before they had the chance to reunite.
