'Too Hot To Handle' Star Harry Has Appeared On Another Dating Show

'Too Hot To Handle' Star Harry Has Appeared On Another Dating Show

*This article contains spoilers for Too Hot To Handle.*

Anyone who spent the weekend watching Too Hot To Handle can agree producers of the Netflix show got the casting spot on.

We had the likes of Canadian travel influencer Francesca Fargo, bubbly Essex girl Chloe Veitch, ex-semi-pro rugby player David Bitwistle and Australian playboy Harry Jowsey - who, IMO, was easily the show's largest personality.

The 23-year-old Queensland native came out with some epic one-liners ("Lana you naughty little possum!") and we watched as he attempted to navigate the villa sex ban while forming a relationship with Francesca.

Despite losing the group a lot of money with their frisky antics, digital host Lana decided the couple had grown from the experience, and they were awarded a share of the prize money.

But did you know this isn't Harry's first dating show rodeo?

In fact, the Aussie won $100,000 (£79,900) split with his then-girlfriend on New Zealand dating show, Heartbreak Island just a year before. Makes sense why he didn't care about the money too much, then!

Harry and his ex Georgia Bryers won the dating show in 2018, which followed a very Love Island-esque concept, seeing a bunch of contestants living in a villa in Fiji and competing in a series of challenges as a couples.

Despite winning together, Harry and Georgia broke up soon after the show wrapped.

"One of the few pairs who shared a romantic bond, rather than just a strategic one, their relationship gave them the upper hand they needed to win," said Heartbreak Island.

"Sadly however, since the show wrapped back in February, the lovebirds haven't been able to keep their romance alive.[...]

"An altercation earlier in the Heartbreak season seemed to mark the beginning of the end. Georgia felt that Harry hadn't supported her, and attempted to make him jealous in retaliation.

"Despite saying that it made them stronger, the public argument seemed to be their downfall. They pulled together to see the season through, but called it quits shortly after leaving Fiji."

However, it seemed like Harry has fully moved on from his past relationship, winning the heart of Instagram model Francesca (they even dropped the L bomb) and a share of the $75,000 prize money in Too Hot To Handle.

While it appears the contestants are still under non-disclosure agreements and are unable to confirm their relationships, a quick glance at Instagram gives some clues about the status of Harry and Francesca's.

For a start, shortly after the show wrapped filming, Harry visited Francesca's hometown of Vancouver, tagging the location in a series of photos. Shortly after, the Instagram model was also seen posting in Harry's native Queensland in June.

After that, Harry appeared to up and leave Australia for a six-month stay in Los Angeles - somewhere the model is known the spend a lot of time. Together perhaps?

While Harry's currently quarantining in his home in Australia, as recently as March, Harry commented on one of Francesca's selfies: "What I wanna wake up to." Could it be they're doing the long-distance thing?

As further evidence, Harry said of a poolside selfie taken just before Too Hot To Handle began filming: "Back when I was sitting poolside with no idea that my life was about to change."

This is surely about Francesca? Too cute!

But Harry isn't the only Too Hot To Handle contestant with a reality show past. Matthew Smith - the long-haired hunk that walked part way through - actually featured on America's Next Top Model back in 2014.

A barely-recognisable Matthew featured in cycle 21 of the modelling competition, featuring much shorter hair, but unfortunately only placed 10th.
