Netflix’s Too Hot to Handle’s Francesca Farago and Harry Jowsey Are Engaged…or Are They?


Leave it to reality television to keep us guessing. The latest reality obsession on Neftlix, Too Hot To Handle, has given us new reality stars to be occupied with. The newest couple that is thrust into the spotlight is Francesca Farago and Harry Jowsey.

The two met on the Netflix series Too Hot to Handle, where sex crazed young adults had to spend their time together on a tropical island trying NOT to have sexual contact with each other. Francesca and Harry hit if off right off the bat and had the most trouble refraining from sex. However, in the end, the couple grew close together and ended up in a real relationship. That’s actually the goal of the show.

Fast forward to the Too Hot to Handle cast reunion on Zoom, where we were updated on the status of the couples, Harry was asked if he had proposed yet.

“Can do you do it over Zoom? Well, we may as well,”  Harry said as he pulled out a Ring Pop candy ring. “I just want to say you’ve absolutely changed my life, I love you so much and I can’t wait to spend forever with you. Do you want to do this thing? Do you want to get married?”

Francesca responded in the positive. “Harry knows I want to marry him, so yes,” she responded. So that’s it, they are engaged right? It’s real, right? Because all reality show relationships are real!

Well, not so fast. A few days after the reunion, Francesca set the record straight during an interview with Variety.

“Everyone’s been like, are you engaged… Like I asked him, ‘Are we engaged?’ And he’s like, ‘I asked you to marry me.’ So I don’t know, like, I think it definitely just needs to be done in person— like a proper proposal. So as of right now, no, we’re not engaged for everyone who’s been asking.” Francesca told Variety. “I mean, we kind of are but I don’t know, how do you really decide that via Zoom call, you know?” Farago continued. “It’s hard to say.”

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
