Too Hot To Handle Star Harry Won $50k On Another Dating Show

Wait... what?!

If you love Netflix, then you’ve probably already seen their latest dating show, Too Hot To Handle, being advertised on the platform.

I’m not going to lie to you, it’s car crash telly. You really can’t look away. But at the same time, there’s aspects of it that are really brilliant. The fact they brought in people from the UK, Australia, US, and even Ireland was a stroke of genius.

Anyway, we don’t want to give away any spoilers in case you haven’t binged it all already, so don’t worry. This article is spoiler-free.

However, we were shocked to find out that resident Aussie ‘lad’ Harry has already appeared on a dating show – and won it?!

The 23-year-old managed to pocket half of the prize money from New Zealand dating show, Heartbreak Island, which was an eye-watering $100,000 (£79,900).

Harry appeared on the show in 2018 with his ex, Georgia Bryers. The basic premise of the show was that a load of contestants lived in a villa in Fiji together, simultaneously competing in a series of challenges…. as couples.


Sadly, their romance wasn’t to be, and the pair split fairly quickly after the show wrapped up. In a statement, Heartbreak Island said: “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,

“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.”
