"Always been you." The clue Harry and Francesca from Too Hot To Handle are still together.

Warning: This post definitely contains spoilers for Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle.

Netflix’s wild new dating show Too Hot To Handle has been the latest reality TV series getting us through isolation.

If you haven’t seen it yet, the show basically sees attractive singles from the US, the UK, Canada, Australia, and Ireland, living together in a tropical paradise with a $100,000 prize that decreases every time they kiss or have sex.

It’s a bit like MAFS meets Love Island but… trashier.

Watch the trailer for Netflix’s Too Hot To Handle. Post continues below.

For those of us who have already shamelessly binged watched all eight episodes, you’re probably wondering whether the show’s three remaining couples managed to make things work outside of paradise (you know, without the restrictions of a robot yelling at them every time they get intimate).

So we decided to conduct a very important investigation – by that we mean some serious Instagram sleuthing- to find out whether Harry and Francesca, David and Lydia, or Sharron and Rhonda are still together after the show.

1. Because we can’t stop thinking about the trashfire that is the show and 2. Because we’re in isolation and simply having nothing better to do than sift through reality TV stars’ social media accounts.


Anyhoo, here’s what we found.

Harry and Francesca (possibly still together)

From day one, Vancouver model Francesca Farago and Aussie Harry Jowsey had an instant connection. But they also managed to break the rules more than anyone else on the show and lost the group a significant amount of money, which they eventually made up for.

After the show wrapped up, it seems the pair initially continued to date.

A detailed look through their Instagram (and a lot of scrolling) later, you'll find images of both Harry and Francesca spending time in each other's home countries.

Last July, the pair posted separate images of themselves with some Aussie animals at the Cooberrie Park Wildlife Sanctuary.

But wait there's more.

It seems Harry has also been busy visiting Vancouver where Francesca lives. NOTE: The green car in the background.


And here's Francesca standing in front of what appears to be the exact same green car.

"Who wants a ride?" she captioned the post.

Now, everything so far may seem pretty promising. But then...Valentine's Day happened.

You see, both Harry and Francesca shared Instagram posts suggesting they were celebrating the day as single people.

"As Valentine’s Day approaches it’s a good time to think about relationships and how it’s two people coming together to solve problems you wouldn’t have if you were just single," wrote Harry.


Francesca was a little less subtle and tagged her location on Instagram as "Single Island".

"Happy V day to everyone getting drunk w their friends tonight & NOT texting their exes," she captioned the post.

These photos very clearly point to the fact that Harry and Francesca must have gone their separate ways somewhere between June last year and February this year.

But now the couple have thrown a spanner into the works with Francesca posting a photo of her smiling and hugging a shirtless Harry. Which has confused precisely all of us.

"Always been you," Francesca captioned the photo.

At this stage, neither Harry nor Francesca have confirmed their relationship status so it looks like we're just going to have to wait and see. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

David and Lydia (definitely not together)

Unlike the other couples, David and Lydia weren't actually an official couple by the end of the show. Lydia wasn't introduced until halfway through the season, so David spent most of his time with fellow contestants Rhonda and Chloe before Lydia rocked up to paradise.

Both David and Lydia are based in the UK, so a possible relationship does seem pretty promising. But sadly it looks like the pair didn't end up working out.

David seemingly suggests he's single in one of his Instagram posts from November last year.

"And he’s good with kids? The DMs will be open 24 hours for applications," he captioned the post.


Lydia on the other hand, seems to have been hanging out with fellow contestant Bryce, despite barely speaking to each other during the show.

In February, Bryce posted a photo of Lydia to his Boat Chronicles Instagram page, which suggests the pair are pretty close.

Hmm watch this space.

And if that wasn't enough evidence, it appears David and Lydia spent Valentine's Day in entirely different countries.

Lydia was literally lost in Venice.


And David was 2,498.3 km away in Africa (yes, I crunched the numbers).

We are going in on @heliosretreats kicking things off with mobility and core work connecting the mind to the muscle and priming everyone for an active week ahead, as the sun rises over the Moroccan Mountains. . Followed by some amazing Vinyasa Yoga to create a little calm amongst the squad, who have mainly come from busy city lives. . After a cheeky dip in the pool & chill we went in on a boxing sesh. Putting them combos together and learning a new skill. It was great to see everyone picking this up so fast. Shout to @anthonycrouchelli for leading this epic workout ???? . The weather, the people and the fitness has been brilliant so far! . A bunch of people from London, Ireland, New York, Canada and Sweden all coming together for a great time in Morocco. . If this looks like your vibe, there are only a couple spots left on my Bali @heliosretreats in July, so DM me quick if you want in on that. You are not going to want to miss this. . #actionsreflectpriorities . #heliosretreats

Sharron and Rhonda (possibly still together)

Last but not least, we have power couple Sharron and Rhonda. The pair formed a pretty serious connection on the show and Rhonda even introduced her two-year-old son to Sharron via FaceTime.

Nowadays, they still follow each other on Instagram and Sharron has liked most of Rhonda's recent photos, which is a pretty good sign.

Other than that, both Sharron and Rhonda are pretty quiet on social media and neither of them posted what they were doing on Valentine's Day this year (which has been by leading tactic thus far).

Sharron has, however, posted pictures with other girls on Instagram. But they quite obviously appear to be part of a modeling campaign.


The pair also did a recent interview with Bustle, but were careful not to let any details slip about their current relationship status.

"It felt amazing but scary at the same time," Rhonda told the publication about her instant connection to Sharron.

"But it was something that I was proud of because me and Sharron really took the time to understand what was happening... because we have both come from such hurtful pasts... we were really about the self-development," she said.

It looks like we're just going to have to wait and see whether Sharron and Rhonda are still together. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Which couple were you hoping would stay together? Let us know in the comments below.
