'Too Hot To Handle' is the latest reality show from Netflix. It features attractive people from all over the world who are challenged to not have sex for the duration of their month-long, island retreat. One cast member, Sharron Townsend, has a local connection.

First, there was Netflix's reality TV show "The Circle," which featured contestants from Montgomery County and Delaware County.

Now, the streaming service's new reality dating show "Too Hot to Handle," in which the cast has to refrain from sexual activity for the entire month-long, island retreat or they'll lose funds from their shared $100,000 cash prize, also features a contestant with a local connection.
