While getting to know someone through quirky text messages is always fascinating, we wonder how it would feel to be stranded with them amongst our other matches on a potential love island or speaking to a match that we haven’t even seen virtually. Wouldn’t that be fun?

Too Hot To Handle – Netflix
Ten amazingly good-looking singles come to stay in a villa for a few weeks and have to couple up with one another before going home with the one they love and $100,000 cash prize. The plot twist is that the cash prize remains intact only if the singles don’t touch one another. They can flirt but cannot kiss each other or indulge in any intimate activities. If they do, the prize money would decrease. Too Hot To Handle released on Netflix India during the time of social distancing.
