We're living in uncertain times and our daily lives have been vastly affected by the Covid-19 global pandemic. The long weekend is here and we're still advised to stay home, but that also means we have more time to binge-watch some good ol' TV. One of the best distractions from the current state of the world is to do what you enjoy most and focus on what makes you happy—even if it means watching how other people live and tuning in to their drama.
Reality TV may not be for everyone but as a genre, it has evolved over the years and social experiments have become the norm. Forming friendships online at the risk of getting catfished? Getting engaged without ever meeting your partner in person? What's next? While we wait for the next reality series to take the spotlight, here's a list of our favourites below so get comfortable and prepare to sink further into your couch as you watch these.
1. Too Hot To Handle
We’ll just cut to the chase: This show involves a group of attractive singles who are given a US$100,000 celibacy challenge. The group of 10 meet each other and mingle at a beach resort in Mexico for four weeks, and this goes on for eight episodes. All the contestants are forbidden from doing anything raunchy with one another or they will face a monetary penalty and lose up to US$20,000 from the total prize fund. The show has quickly become a hit online and gained fans from all over the world. If you’re a fan of Love Island, chances are you’ll probably enjoy this frivolous series as well.
Available on Netflix
