NEW YORK CITY (SBG) - On April 17, I innocently opened Netflix to find something to watch while I ate dinner. I've never been one to put any effort into browsing Netflix, so I usually end up rewatching the same five shows that I've already seen a million and one times. But that Friday night, the main banner of Netflix was advertising something called "Too Hot To Handle," and it caught my eye. It didn't look good, but it looked like the perfect mindless accompaniment to my macaroni and cheese, so I started the first episode without any real expectations.
By Saturday, I was on the finale.
Netflix's newest dating show brings a group of attractive and single people together to party at a tropical resort. The catch? They can't have any sexual contact with the other contestants — not even a kiss. At stake is $100K in prize money for those who show the most personal growth, but each infraction of the rules during their stay will cost the entire group. It's an exciting concept, right? A little trashy, sure, but captivating nonetheless. Plus, there's something especially fascinating about it right now, as we're also trying to follow strict guidelines limiting physical touch.
If you're intrigued, you're not alone, because everybody's talking about "Too Hot To Handle" right now. Once you've binge-watched the first season, check out the best social media reactions to the steamy new show to keep the entertainment going.

Haley doesn't even know what language her tattoo is, so you deserve a break from those virtual Spanish lessons.
But there's no need to feel ashamed if you watched it all in one day.
Yep, that's exactly how it happens.
At one point, I literally had every cast member's Instagram page open on my laptop.
